Though in truth, this modern mother knows what she was thinking. She was thinking "Do I really need to spend more than I am paying for my actual turkey at that fancy pants florists for some minimalist centerpiece involving about 9 stems when the children could make something wonderful for next to nothing?"
So here we are three days and unimaginable effort, home made paste crises, cajoling, tempera paint showers and of course fun (?) later.
After this "teachable experience," today's real turkey and 26 accompanying guests should be a cake walk.
Hope we didn't just jinx ourselves with that last thought.
Happy Thanksgiving to all,
Elizabeth & Elizabeth
