Tablescape Thursday - My Thanksgiving Table

I'm joining Susan and all the great tablescapers, featured weekly at Between Naps on the Porch.  Please take the time to visit and view the many beautiful and creative tables. 

This week, I've prepared my Thanksgiving table.  I've covered my table this week with Veranda Paisley tablecloth by Ralph Lauren.  The beige offers a nice backdrop for the other subtle autumn colors.

One of the things I like to do as I prepare for the holiday meal,  is to do as many things ahead of time as possible.  Setting my table ahead of time is a no brainer. 

Dinner plate and soup bowl is Bella Stoneware.  Salad plate is Citrus Dots from Home Essentials collection and purchased at Marshalls.  Wicker charger adds a natural element along with the pinecone napkin holder from Pier One. 

Flatware is Queens Garden from Reed and Barton. 

Porcelain pumpkins were purchased at Kohl's a couple years ago.  The leaf plates are from TJ Maxx and will be home to yummy yeast rolls on Thanksgiving day.

Tongs are Queen's Garden from Reed and Barton. 

Butter will be handy on the table to slather on the yummy yeast rolls I'll be serving. 

I love these sparkling tea lights I found at Kirklands.  The inside is mirrored and reflects the candlelight....they come in three shades - cream, amber and a deep bronze.

Fall hurricanes show beautiful colors when reflecting the candlelight.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving and are able to spend time with friends and family.  I'll be taking time to reflect on the many blessings I have been given and that I am most thankful for everyday.
All the best,

Pin It!

Looks like you will have a very special Thanksgiving this year at that pretty table!
