“Over The River And Through The Woods, to Grandmother’s house we go”….
Ok, how many of you, my dear readers, remember that song about Thanksgiving?
I know, I know…
…it is really a Christmas song, but I grew up in the Midwest and living in the country, there were many Thanksgivings we had to plow through snow to go to Grandma’s house for our Thanksgiving feast. And I associate that song with Thanksgiving.
Whether you go by horse drawn sleigh, planes, trains or automobiles…. Thanksgiving is only two weeks away.
Wow! And Yikes!
This is the time of year when we notice time flying by…at least if you are an adult. I can remember as a child, the days just took forever before we could celebrate the Holidays….I know you know… what I mean.
So this week, I am going to show you several suggestions for a Thanksgiving tablescape. Feel free to use all of the ideas, some of the ideas OR just look at the Thanksgiving tablescapes.
I love playing with dishes as you know and I love mixing and matching it up.
This thanksgiving tablescape is a simple one.
I used small pumpkins, both real and the faux pumpkins and lined them up the center of the table. I laced in a few pheasant feathers, leaves, votive cups, acorns and pine cones to carry out my woodland theme.
I placed a rattan charger on top of an orange plaid tablecloth and the linen napkins are rust colored.
I experimented with the color of the napkins by using the plaid napkins first. After looking at them for awhile, I decided that there was too much plaid, so I changed to the solid rust color napkins and opted to fold them rather than using a napkin ring.
The stemmed glasses are a pretty shade of amber and the flatware is bronze. I call this flatware my stick flatware because of the unusual small twigs that jut out along the handle.
For the place settings, you will see a white ironstone plate on top of the rattan charger. One can never go wrong with white ironstone.
On top of the ironstone, I added a Spode Dinner plate.
The Spode salad plate features a colorful turkey which I just love.
A leaf shaped soup bowl finishes out the place setting.
I will be sharing other Thanksgiving Tablescapes as we mark down the days until Thanksgiving.
Have a great and Blessed Day!
