4th Annual Thanksgiving Table Decorating Contest (Remix)

You might recall my little "Thanksgiving Table Decorating Contest" tradition from last year.

In case you forgot, I won.

Here's a shot of my little winner:
Yes, it IS set on a card table in my sun-room.  We work with what we have, okay?

Anyways, this year... I have good news and bad news.

Bad first:
The Mulvaney-Chapman-Thompson party has been called off and thus, there will be no table contest at our festivities.  (SO sad, as I'd been thinking about my plan for at least a couple of months now.)  As it turns out, we are going to do something small at my parent's house to accommodate my Granny and her poor health this year.  It will be sweet and simple and intimate.  I decided not to complain about not having to clean, do dishes, etc. There will be plenty more years for that!

BUT, the good news is:
I'm opening up the contest to YOU!!!
That's right, the 4th Annual Thanksgiving Table Decorating Contest will be conducted entirely at E, Myself, and I.  (Thank you, for letting my tradition live on.)

Here's how it works:
- Submit a photo of your Thanksgiving Table by email (e@emyselfandi.com) before midnight on SATURDAY 11/27.  (That should give you plenty of time for eating, shopping, cleaning, etc.)

- On Sunday, I will post all the entries on my blog for YOU to vote!

- I will announce the winner - of $50.00 to CSN Stores & bragging rights for a year - some time next week!

Sound fun?  Please play!!
Here's a little inspiration to get you going.  (How I wish I was one of those women that already had my table set for Thursday's lunch.)

  2. I love your table from last year! I would enter your contest, but I'm not hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year, either.

  3. wow the ideas look great! I'm not hosting Thanksgiving this year so I won't have a table to show off.... but I can't wait to see all of the entries!
