The past couple of weeks have flown by. I couldn't believe that we were celebrating Thanksgiving once again. We entertained some of the law students who didn't have a home to go to during this holiday. It was so much fun just getting to know everyone better. I learned a lot and we found out how much we had in common. I believe it made us closer friends and I'm very thankful for the opportunity to host Thanksgiving dinner at our house this year.
I don't believe I've shared pictures of my dining room with y'all yet. The house didn't have a dining room but had this grand sun room. Since my table was very large I desperately needed the room so I converted the sun room into our dining area. And since I love plantations I tried to keep an old Southern feel when decorating.
I purchased these at a antique shop near the house. They reminded me of some of the portraits of the children in the plantation houses we visited in Natchez.
This is our fountain. Instead of putting it outdoors I decided to place it inside the sun room/dining room. It is so relaxing to push open the french doors and be able to read a book lounging in the living room while listening to the fountain. It's especially nice to be dining with friends with light jazz music and the fountain in the background. It feels as if we are having dinner in the French Quarter but it's our house.
Wishing Everyone a Very Happy Thanksgiving!!!!
