Hard to believe that it’s already October! For us Canadians, that means that Thanksgiving is right around the corner (like, next weekend – yikes! Better order my turkey!). I am really looking forward to Thanksgiving this year because we will host it in our home, and our little girl will enjoy it so much more than last year (when she was just a few months old). We have so much to be thankful for! When 1-800-Flowers.com approached me to use their flowers in an autumnal tablescape, I thought it would be the perfect trial run for our big dinner next weekend. And it just so happens that October coincides with the fall Year of Feasting event! The stars really aligned.

The Year of Feasting blog hop is one of my all-time favourite blogging events, where a group of Canadian bloggers each create seasonal tablescapes and set-ups, and then actually host the meal. This Thanksgiving one required a little bit of blogger magic (hard to host Thanksgiving ten days early!), but my husband and I did in fact enjoy the food I photographed! We indulged in some Quebec cheeses, delicious charcuterie, fresh baguette, ripe local strawberries (soooo yummy!), and a nice bottle of Riesling (our favourite white wine).
