It’s time to Dress the BIRD and Dress the TABLE…now it’s time to DRESS the Part for the “consumption” Holiday!
What are your favorite Thanksgiving family memories? Mine is my Mom in her seasonal apron standing in the kitchen as if she were the Master Conductor of the RPO holding her ladle and electric carving knife at the ready. She had every table in the house available and set to perfection with the fine china. Every burner was simmering and every square inch of the oven was jammed with foil covered deliciousness. All attending this family celebration donned the most festive attire to kick-off the month long Holiday,
“Flowers of Cotton” Elegant Aprons for the Passionate Cooks
Fast Forward… breaking Tradition happened two years ago, I now own The Consumption Holiday. I don’t wear an apron and everyone attending brings a specialty dish so I am thankful that my “composition” doesn’t require I stand in the kitchen from dawn to dusk like my Mom. My presentation consist of a Buffet runway of colorful steaming offerings. I dress the turkey similar to what my Mom taught me and dress the table without using the 18 place setting of fine china ( haven’t unpacked that in years) instead of overly festive attire I demand that all invited to break bread and be thankful be as comfortable as possible…I don’t want any leftovers so I encourage losening that belt buckle and wear that leggin and long tunic top or dress and relax…because the next two days for us SHOP GIRLS are BUSY!!!
