My mom is an expert holiday decorator. When ever you entered our home growing up, you knew exactly what time of year it was. She always seemed to be able to balance having holiday traditions with style (i.e., the decor was never corny!). Thanksgiving was a particular favorite of our family, because my sister has a wonderful sense of humor and laughs hysterically at the sight of a turkey's back side. Yup, she thinks turkey butts are hilarious! Anyway, it became a family tradition to turn all of our turkey decorations rump-side-facing-out so that whenever she walked into the room laughter would ensue. Lots of fun!
Real life turkeys are actually pretty darn ugly. At least in my opinion! For some reason I can't get over the ugliness of their head and neck. But decorative turkeys are another thing entirely. Check out these cute turkeys and learn how to make one of your own:
And my personal favorite - the Oreo Cookie turkey. This guy has been a hit at our last two thanksgiving dinners!
HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!
