Thanksgiving Tablescape

I have the table ready for Thanksgiving!  

This big turkey will hold the gravy!

This is a beautiful tea set that my son and dil brought me back from their trip to Singapore

I used this vintage wall vase to hold the silverware...

Do the plates seem a little big?  I use platters!  I think they are fun and you have plenty of room for turkey and all the trimmings!

I use all my best dishes...even the gold tea set!

I have lots of candles lit for the Thanksgiving dinner....

This is a special butter dish that belonged to my mother...

Cute little sugar server...

Lots of fall leaves....

And yes, even a Thanksgiving pumpkin tree over there in the corner!
Have a blessed Thanksgiving!
