Our very first Thanksgiving in Saluda was a complete success. The Oaks Beds and Breakfastwelcomed guests from Savannah to Atlanta; from New Orleans to Cleveland, Ohio and I think it’s safe to say “a good time was had by all.”
Fireplaces throughout the inn were ablaze as our guests enjoyed some genuine fall mountain weather.While some guests came to visit family in the area, the majority stayed to join us in on our Traditional Candlelight Thanksgiving feast.
Friends assembled in the parlor for a pre-dinner reception that included festive holiday Cosmopolitans, roasted tenderloin of beef on toast points, garnished with a touch of horseradish cream and lively conversation.
As our well-dressed guests filed into the dinning room, each was embraced by the warm glow of candle light and fresh flowers. The long table was awash in sparkling crystal, dazzling china and polished silver. As the centerpiece, candles floated in a miniature oak leaf shaped bird bath. The room was impressive and reflected the innkeeper’s decades of professional banquet and catering experience.
In a concert of culinary delights, guest enjoyed Consume Celestine, followed by a Poached Pear Salad with goat cheese and champagne vinaigrette. The main course consisted of Roasted Turkey with Apricot-Grand Marinier Dressing, herbed gravy, Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Glazed Carrots and Brussel Sprouts. Donna’s Spicy Pumpkin Pie and Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie was the perfect finish to a magnificent meal. Evening festivities continued over board games and books – coffee and conversation.
