~Sneak Peek, Thanksgiving Table~

It was going to be plain white dishes but I changed my mind & decided to use the red & white instead. So the table is a collection of different patterns. The vintage napkins were washed & ironed, folded simply & tied with raffia and a piece of red twig dogwood! I’ll be adding a few more sprigs of red tinged leaves later. I’m using my Mom’s old peanut butter glasses….I love them! I laid the placemats horizontally with the edge hanging over the table for something different. It looks a bit sparse but I like to leave room for the food.

I hollowed out the white pumpkin that was my Autumn center piece & added carnations, white with lime green edges. After I put in a few springs of lime ting ting and dug out the lime acorn Christmas ornaments, I added some berries from the yard.
So there it is, I like it to be elegant but not too fancy, this is enough work!
Tomorrow I’ll be cooking, baking and doing all the prep work like dicing the celery & onions for the stuffing. It helps to have things ready to go and makes less mess on turkey day too. I’ve decided to add broccoli ramen noodle salad, spinach dip and a fresh apple cake to the menu. There is always so much food!

Wishing everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving!

    Your table is just lovely. It is a lot of work, isn’t it? I spent about 2+ hours doing tablescapes on two tables last night. The whole time I was thinking, I really need to be cleaning. Oh well, a clean house is over rated, right? Love your dishes!

    I love red-and-white transferware, and these pictures are gorgeous. What great ideas–the hollowed out pumpkin planter, set into the tureen, the teacup candles, the twigs–it makes my heart happy to see such creativity and beauty. I love your philosophy, too–simple elegance.
    Hope you had a great day!
