Thankful + Grateful: The UK Thanksgiving Plan

So for the second time in my life I am about to make a full Thanksgiving dinner abroad where all humans attending are both curious and dare I say excited for what this holiday entails! Now right after Halloween, Thanksgiving is MY FAVOURITE holiday! It is a time to spend with family and friends and reflect on the past year.

I am of course going full out with my table decor, themed cocktail, and menu! For the past week, I realized I don't have all the time in the world and I need to start planning out what needs to happen! Here are some of my inspiration pins for right now and some of the things I am hoping to try out.
