Thanksgiving with Roland Bello

I haven’t been talking much about Thanksgiving, perhaps because I will be traveling to spend the week with my feet up while others do the cooking. Also because I find the usual turkey fare quite drab- with the exception of this styled dinner spread Roland Bello designed for Gourmet Magazine which is perfect.

What a fabulous thanksgiving celebration this would be! I absolutely adore the olives and vintage carafes lining the table and how the crystal glasses look a bit sneaked in. Plus the fake landscape backdrop is such a clever touch of whimsy. It reminds me of a high school dance… but cheeky in its own sophisticated way.

I wonder if you’ve made your Thanksgiving plans yet? If you are staying home, would you ever consider a fake backdrop to make you feel like you were somewhere else? You could easily find a scene you adore and have it blown up to sit behind your table… That would be a lovely touch indeed.

    ahhh love it. Reminds me a little of “White Christmas”

    It is my first Thanksgiving home. Sad to be away from family, but thankful for my own growing little family:)

    Yes, I would do a backdrop to host my dinner party in a ‘winter’ locale during the holidays. That would be pretty cool, though the thought never occurred to me.
