Thanksgiving Tablescape

I'm still playing with ideas for our Thanksgiving tablescape.      For me,   Thanksgiving is all about being thankful,   my family,   and the food.    I want the table to look as good as the food does!

Yes,   you do see a Christmas tree in the far left of the photo!   
 I haven't put the lights or ornaments on it yet,  but I do have it in place,    Is that the hardest part for anyone but me?    H  had to take two end tables to the studio to put the tree's up this year....   yep,   I have one on each side of the fireplace!

Here's the centerpiece for this tablescape. 
   I have several candlesticks in the center of the table,  but none of them have candles on!    

The biggest candlestick kind of has a candle on it......a turkey candle that I don't plan to lite.    He's too pretty to burn up!     This picture doesn't do him justice,    he's a pale blush color and is covered with sparkles.    

I have a mini vignette on each side of the centerpiece.

I used something that isn't normally a vase to put some roses in.     If you look at Hobby Lobby in the Christmas section....over where the pine cones will see these rolls of small birch limbs.    I bought mine last Christmas and have used it all year in farmhouse vignettes.    I just left it rolled up and stuck small rose stems in some of the spaces....easy peasy.

All the place settings are alike......

I bought these Mr Turkey paper napkins last year at an after Christmas sale.      I have never seen any others like them,   so I don't think I will use them except in tablescapes.     When it comes time to eat,   I will replace them with some napkins that can be found more easily.

I am using plates and glasses that you've seen many times before,   but the wish bone is new.    I found two of them at At Home for $2 each..... WISH   (a little pun)   there had been more than two!

I wanted different levels in my tablescape,   so I sat two of the velvet pumpkins on pieces of pink milk glass.    I also blinged them up with a pretty brooch.

I left the existing vignette on the pass thru,   but I added a cutting board to the center of it.

The table under the window is pretty much the same,   but I put a different bouquet on the top tier.

This star on the wall is new.....well kind of......   
It used to be red white and blue and was hanging above the fireplace on the front porch.      I transformed it with some fabric that I can easily remove when I want to use it outside again.

  12. I really like the birch stems gathered together, its really different and nice. I love the little wishbones as well, its so annoying when you can only find two of something. Two is better than zero though, hopefully you come across some more. Enjoy your Thanksgiving.

  13. Your house is just gorgeous and I love the little touches you add like the napkins and the wish bones

  14. Love those napkins! I was hoping you had made that into a printable! The pink/gold wishbones are just adorable. I like the pink and gold theme you've accomplished for Thanksgiving - and the floral dinner plates are beautiful!

  15. The turkey napkins are adorable - I wouldn't use them up either! As always, Penny, the pretty details all work together in your home so well!

  16. I'm convinced I'd recognize your decorating touches anywhere Penny. It's so distinctive. Always beautiful and so lady-like and calm. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving

  17. Happy Pink Saturday, Penny. Thank you for always making Pink Saturdays special.

    I couldn't resist that turkey strutting his stuff. This post is being featured on my Pink Saturday post this week as "the one that caught my eye". Thanks for sharing.♥


It makes my day to hear from my friends!
