In Canada, Thanksgiving falls on October 11th...
we have a long weekend as the holiday is on the Monday.
A busy weekend is planned here in the Humble Bungalow...
and as the Hostess,
you know that I love to entertain friends and family.
I have a small dinner party for friends and a family brunch scheduled.
I have started by setting the table for the dinner, and making the dessert.
I find that if I do a few things ahead that I am more relaxed and can have some time to freshen up and get dressed before company arrives.
Mr. HB is in charge of drinks and wine...
I do food and flowers.
Thanksgiving officially reminds us to embrace gratitude and family...to celebrate, and to give thanks.
I aim to be mindful of these every day...
The Humble Bungalow has been the hub of family gatherings for many years,
(and curiously, it's the smallest venue in the family)
Our Moms, children, and grandbaby Isla will be here...my sister's partner is golfing in Rancho Mirage and she is alone so she cancelled her scheduled riding class to join us.
I'll be absent from the blog arena for most of the weekend...I might pop in and see what others are doing, maybe leave a comment or two...but I think my apron will be on 24/7 and I'll be playing around with food and serving up some dishes to some very special friends and family.
