Our table is set and ready for the family to come enjoy Thanksgiving together tomorrow.
I had a whole different tablescape in my mind for this year. However, when I went to put it together it just didn't seem to flow. Even though I'm sure no one but me would notice, I didn't like the way it looked.
So, I changed it all around the last minute. I was going to have the tablescape be acorns, pilgrims and leaves.
The idea started because I bought the little acorn place card holders from Pottery Barn.
I decided to go with the traditional Turkey theme. I got out my new napkin ring holders. That are turkeys.
My turkey plates. I added turkey place cards.
Then for the little favor, I got everyone a chocolate turkey from See's Candy.
I added a few bits of the original tablescape I had in mind too.
I scattered some fall leaves around to bring some color into the tablescape.
I used a few of my pilgrims. Only new ones I bought this year. I'm sad to say, I was so busy this year that I didn't get to the storage to get all my Thanksgiving decorations out.
Other then the tablescape, my house is not decorated for Thanksgiving. On the bright side, that means I can get right into decorating for Christmas though.
I put a big candle holder in the middle of the table. You must have candles, right? It is clear glass with fall leaves and when the candle light flickers through the leaves it's so pretty.
I also added some small pumpkins around the candle.
My dear friend, Claire, gave me these darling turkey salt and pepper shakers when I first met her. How sweet! They look perfect on this tablescape too.
I want to wish all my blog friends a wonderful Thanksgiving and for those of you (like me) that will be heading on Black Friday, I hope you get lots of great deals.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
