My mom always has a ton of tin cans lying around, so I went with those for the "vases". My brother was kind enough to spray paint them white for me and I painted THANKS on one side and GIVING on the other. Make sure to think about this a few times before painting. Like the saying goes: measure twice, cut once....so I guess with this we would say: spell twice, paint once.
For the other two tables, I used tea lights I had lying around and some dried corn which I harvested as a kid. The doilies were found in the back of one of moms cupboards and they were a very nice addition to the tables.
For dinner the night before turkey day, I made the family a main dish from OhSheGlows and a side veggie dish from DailyGarnish.
Mushroom Risotto with Caramelized Onions and Sweet and Sour Brussels Sprouts.
Hope everyone had a happy day-before-turkey-day day ;)
