Easy Peasy!

Just thought I would post a little something I used last year, at Thanksgiving. I know it is early, but it will be here, before we know it!
I usually have Thanksgiving for my husband's family, around 45 to 60 show up. 

Easy Peasy is the only way to go. While making a pea salad, the graphics on the pea cans caught my eye...

This year I am flipping with my sister in law, though, and will have Christmas, for both William's and my side, each are huge...I love our family.

This buffet was in my home growing up. I love the lines. I stripped it, but let part of it stay out in the weather, as a result the top  was split and it had a broken door front.  Josh fixed it and put oil based paint on it.

If you want to see more pics of the
"Fan of Photos" just click it.

We are doing some major fixing up around here, so if I don't post much~ Just know I haven't dropped off the Earth, lol.  

Full House,

DIY has a party going on!

Hi Lezlee, LOVE this, and your buffet is just gorgeous, Girl you deserve an award for having that many people over, and your right "easy" is the only way to go! I'd love you to link this into VIF if you can, it's really great inspiration!

Jane said...

Your buffet is beautiful and I love how you have it set up for your Thanksgiving dinner. I agree with Debra about an award for cooking for so many!!! I struggle with about 12-15.
Good luck with your fixing up.

Impressive! I love when our families come to visit too, but our groups usually aren't as large! Your buffet looks great and I love the pea cans too. You're just so clever : )

Love the pea cans and the holder they're in. With a group that large, plastic utensils is the way to go. I get all flustered if I have ten people coming over. I can't imagine getting ready for a group as large as yours.

That buffet is just like the one mom had. My sister has it now.

Good grief...where do you put 'em all...hang 'em on a peg? That's a lot of mouths to fill...not to mention tummys! When you're feeding that many, you better start early planning! Cute buffet set-up.

Nice idea- and reusing things we normally throw away is even better! I love the labels on the pea cans.

I have always loved the graphics on LeSeur pea cans! Great job using them!

Looks great! I'm ready to get into fall mode, too. I've been away for 3 weeks and still have the stuff I put out for the 4th of July, gathering dust around the house. Fall colors are my favorite.

Ooh Lezlee I LOVE the lines of your buffet....As much as I ENJOY finding Treasures, I WISH I had a piece handed down through the family....!!

I agree with others that have mentioned the cans you've used....They're WAY COOL....!!
