A Dinner Party for Two - Thanksgiving Edition

I love dinner parties. I love attending them and hosting them. So naturally our Thanksgiving turned into a dinner party for two!
This year my sweet husband and I stayed in North Carolina for Thanksgiving. We had a few invites to join other celebrations but at the end of the day, a cozy Thanksgiving at home sounded perfect. 

Neither of us really know how to cook but we wanted to challenge ourselves and create an entire feast in one morning. So Thanksgiving morning consisted of a little bit of football via the annual D1 Turkey Bowl, followed by a few hours of cooking together in the kitchen watching the Macey's Thanksgiving Day Parade and listening to Christmas music. Thank goodness for Google and mothers! But we did it! Check out our Menu-
Deviled Eggs

Cornish Game Hens
Honey Glazed Ham
Mashed Potatoes and Gravy
Lemon Parmesan Green Beans
Grandma's Rolls

Pumpkin Pie with Whipped Cream
Chocolate Chip Cookies & Milk

Apple Cider
The decor was relatively simple. Roses go a long way so I picked up a soft pink combo that I thought would pair well with the cream and tan color scheme. We decided that all the dishes (including our dinner plates) would be white. I'm a sucker for place settings so that was a no brainer. And finally, the menu on the side was a fun addition. It made our dinning room feel like a restaurant. 

We lit the candles, dimmed the lights and played soft christmas music in the background. It really was perfect and a fun way for us to celebrate!
I hope some of these ideas inspire you to throw your own dinner party - regardless if its a large group or just a table for two!
