Yesterday morning I started the day on the phone with my dad discussing Thanksgiving. Bob and I are hosting this year because, frankly, we couldn’t hear of any other options with it being our first holiday season in our new home. With my huge family and his family combined, we will be serving up dinner for nearly 30 parents, siblings, nieces and nephews so two months out the preparations begin. Should we have a ham in addition to turkey? (Answer: Yes!) Who is doing the stuffing? (My mom. Always.) Do we have enough chairs? (Ummm…nope!) All of this talk about cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie got me digging through the real party archives where I uncovered five of my favorite, festive fall parties to share with you today. I’m sharing a few photos from each party, plus you can click any of the links to take you to the full feature. Ready, set, let’s party!
