Five on Friday // Thanksgiving Prep

Happy Friday!  So, do you have big plans for Thanksgiving?  Are you hosting?  We have my husband's family get together in town on Thursday and then head out of town on Friday to spend Thanksgiving with my family.  I'll for sure be ready to pop by Friday evening, as I seem to think I have to sample everything :) 

Whether you host or head to someone else's adobe for Thanksgiving, here are some easy recipes and décor ideas that might help with your holiday festivities.

1.  Pumpkin Roll -- try this dreamy pumpkin roll filled with gooey cream cheese.  You can find the recipe here.

 2.  Easy Inexpensive DIYs for you Thanksgiving Table --  add some glam to your table with gold spray paint and gold glitter.  Use fresh flowers, ribbon and candles to finish it off.  You can find this tablescape here.

3.  Pecan Cheesecake Bars -- shortbread, cheesecake and pecan pie all in one bar...these are the perfect addition to your Thanksgiving feast.  Scrumptious recipe right here.

4.  Simple Rustic Tablescape -- use natural elements to create a pretty tablescape using pinecones and fresh clippings.  Full tablescape can be found here.

5.  Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake Blossoms -- yep, these are pretty awesome too.  Taste-tested and approved, these little gems are sure to be a hit.  Find the recipe here.
And that's a wrap.  Hope you can find something pretty or yummy for your Thanksgiving in that roundup!
