I’m attending two exciting Thanksgiving dinners this year. The first was last night, on Thanksgiving. The second is tomorrow. Yesterday, I dressed in the colors of my meal: Cranberry jacket, pumpkin top, Field Roast necklace, chocolate pants, and whiskey shoes.
Necklace: Florida market
Shoes: Urban Outfitters
I brought a vegan pumpkin pie to the festivities. An easy recipe with a delicious outcome. When I got to the host’s place (my friend Lynn), I was astonished by the full bar–that’s the benefit of having a bartender for a friend. Lynn made drinks. I had a rye and ginger with my meal and a hot toddy with dessert.
Besides the pie I brought, we dined on spicy bean casserole, phyllo-wrapped field roast “turkey,” mashed potatoes, stuffing, and cranberry sauce. Lynn put the turkey adoption certificate from Farm Sanctuary on the table, where a turkey might otherwise be.
On the way out the door, after hours of great conversation, I noticed the unique switchplate cover. Wild Turkey. The theme continues.
Besides being a mother, bartender, birder, and clogger, Lynn is also a crafter and makes unique, booze-inspired creations from upcycled bar industry leftovers. From bottle cap soy candles to beer case journals, Lynn’s shop on Etsy is a great place for holiday gifts.
How was your Thanksgiving?

Love the whiskey colored shoes!! Missed not seeing you all last night but got to enjoy the leftovers with Lynn and Theo tonight.
Missed seeing you too – I hope you had a great time. See you soon, I hope!
Field roast necklace..my favorite of all!!
Thank you! A new trend, perhaps? 😉
Reblogged this on fashionable over 50.
Thanks for reblogging this!
Love how you have coordinated your outfit to match the dinner menu! Very original!! These colours look great together.
Thanks! They do work together, don’t they? I don’t often mix red and brown, but it works! Autumnal, wouldn’t you say?
Totally autumnal!!! 🙂
That looks like fun. Love the pumpkin colored top with the cranberry jacket. So cute.
Thanks Marla! I don’t think anyone noticed that I coordinated my outfit with the food, but it was a fun way to get ready.
Thanks for the great write-up, Jean. I didn’t even notice your color combos that night. I love it!! Thanks for spending another great vegan Thanksgiving with me…..I’ve lost count how many that makes now 🙂
Glad you like it, Lynn! I’ve also lost count of how many Thanksgivings we’ve shared. Here’s to many more!
OMG That jacket! I just can’t. What a great cut, and I love the shoulders!
Glad you like it. It’s linen too. I had no idea how it would look on. It arrived just before Thanksgiving so it was a great way to test it out. Lulu’s probably still has them… It would look great on you 😉
Girlfriend, you look adorable. That jacket was meant for you! P.S I love the Wild Turkey switchplate. Gotta get my hands on a Coors one for the bf’s family!
Thanks! I took a chance on the jacket when I ordered it online and it worked! BTW, I bet my friend Lynn (the Eco Imbiber) would make a Coors switchplate for your BF’s fam…
Re-reading this post made me realized that I may have left the Wild Turkey light switch cover at my old apartment!
Oh no! I’d say climb through the doggie door and get it back but you fixed the door so well. There’s always something I forget. I’d never have thought to check the switch plates. Time for another craft night!
