For today’s Throwback Thursday, I’ll be giving you a follow-up to my post last year when I told you how I was no Martha Stewart and I shared some photos with you of previous years’ Thanksgiving name cards that I made for my guests. I couldn’t share the ones I made in 2014 because my guests hadn’t seen them yet.
I was actually just going through my point and shoot camera the other day, and realized I still had the photos on there to show you later. (Being as I typically use my studio camera, I tend to forget that I even have a point and shoot sometimes.)
Anyway, this is the little turkey that saved my seat at Thanksgiving. This was the first time I ever used a pre-fab kit to make the place cards rather than making them from scratch, but I found myself running out of time as the big day approached.
Immediately following Thanksgiving dinner, Jeremy’s turkey fell to the ground, and our cat Dakota got hold of it. By the time we rescued it, it looked almost as bad as a real Thanksgiving turkey after it had already been carved and picked down to the bones!
Let’s chat: How early do you start planning for your holiday meals and guests? Other than Thanksgiving and Christmas, what other large meals do you plan in advance? Do you photograph funny things that your pets do to things around your house? (That last question applies to everyone except my good buddy Mark Bialczak… I already know that he makes a very cool photographic anthology of his sweet dog Ellie B’s collections of things she shouldn’t have.)
