Thanksgiving Inventory

November 12, 2012

By Gabrielle.

Are you hosting Thanksgiving this year? Here’s your friendly annual reminder: this week is the perfect time to take inventory of your kitchen. Check your linens for stains. Assess your kitchen tools. Count your silverware and place settings and make sure you have enough for the big day. It’s an easy bet there are some spoons missing. (Why is it always spoons?)

We’ll be having Thanksgiving on our own this year, and our rental is all stocked up with dinnerware, but if I was ordering a platter or a bowl, something from Heath Ceramics’s seasonal collection would be at the top of my list.

Tell me, Friends. Do you have a favorite pattern of dishware or flatware that you add to? I use Yamazaki Old Denmark and Wilton Armetale Plough.

Like mother, like daughter: I copied my mum when I got married and bought a set of the Churchill Blue Willow dishes that we use for pretty much everything. Though since I’m hosting Thanksgiving at my in-law’s house this year (as the family’s sole American, I’m always in charge no matter the venue!) we’ll be using some simple & elegant Sophie Conran for Portmerion dishes.

The sole American? That’s a lot of pressure! : )

The dishes sound lovely.

Thank heavens i am not hosting this year. We get to go to my dads farmhouse that is over 100 years old. Should be fun!

Thanksgiving in a 100 year old farmhouse = perfection.

In lieu of Thanksgiving this year, I’m holding the opening night of my living room bistro that night — it’ll be just as festive and cozy!

Wow, Valerie! You must be giddy with excitement. Best of luck on opening night!
