Discovering A Sentimental Treasure

The other day, I was looking for a particular item…

Could not find it…

Then I thought to look in the drawer that is underneath the oven.

It wasn’t there either…however…I found something that I forgot I had.

A platter that my mom gave me years and years ago…

To place the turkey on .. for my very first Thanksgiving that I hosted.

Thanksgiving dinner was always at my mom’s house….then eventually hosted at my sister’s home.

But on that particular year….many years ago…I hosted it for my family.

I told my mom that I did not have a platter large enough…she said she had the perfect platter…

…..for the very first turkey that I was to make.

I placed the platter on the stove hood….but it looked too plain

I looked in my stash of faux greenery…I had the perfect stem of greenery.

I cut each branch off from the main stem and formed it into a circle using floral wire.

I prefer using faux florals and greenery by Raz or Regency…for the quality.

I was fortunate to get this stem for 75% off … cost of stem originally $7.00 … final cost, $1.75 🙂

The wreath was just the thing to enhance my “platter of memories”
