We all arrived with our favorite dishes to share and, as we have for over five decades, enjoyed a delicious Thanksgiving meal together. Sisters, brothers, cousins, children, aunts, uncles, grandparents, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and friends – every flavor of family looks forward to our Bass-Heath-Roberson-Friends gathering.
Southern Vintage Table (aka Shelly 🙂 ), along with Rowena, Allie, Tommy, Sandy, and Melissa, arrived Wednesday at the Rolesville Masonic Lodge to set the tables. This year’s colorful theme included printed tablecloths with colored placemats and mid-century plates in greens, yellows, and blues. Also added to each place setting were mixed and matched vintage napkins, clear goblets, and stainless flatware.
Rowena and Melissa arranged centerpieces from greenery, flowers, and berries gathered from our yards and gardens. These were placed in colored bottles and vases down the tables with vintage candle holders and votives The result? Three long tables dressed in happy hues of blues, greens, and gold!
(Thank you, Wiley and Sandy, for posting these on Facebook!)
Although some family members are no longer with us and others couldn’t make it this year, we all dearly love this annual celebration. We’ll be back next year to do it again!
The tradition continues, Susie, Wiley, Christine, Aline, Weldon, and Toot – and your families dearly thank you!
