Happy November, my dear friends! I’m so sorry for the long absence. I promise we are all fine, and I will fill you in on everything that has been going on around the house in a future post. But for now, I am so happy to be back with you and my talented tablescaping friends.
Can you believe that Thanksgiving is almost upon us? It is one of my most favorite holidays! It is that special day when loved ones gather around a table full of delicious food, join hands to say grace, and reflect on our many blessings. Last year, my family could not be together because of the pandemic, but we still managed to face-time and say grace together before we ate our Thanksgiving dinner. It is a memory that I will never forget. This year the holiday will be especially meaningful, because I will once again be with all of my family. That definitely makes one have a heart full of thanksgiving. I am a firm believer that no matter how bad things are, we all still have so much to be grateful for. In both good and bad times, hidden blessings are always around us.
Today, I feel blessed to be joining my tablescaping friends once again as we share our Thanksgiving tables. I am so grateful to Rita at Panoply for hosting this event. A list and links to all of the beautiful tables are at the end of this post.
My dear friends, please step inside my dining room and join me for a table and heart full of thanksgiving.
For this year’s table, I selected a traditional autumn color palette. The tablecloth I chose set the entire mood of the setting. It is a new purchase and is by Maison d’ Hermine.
For the plate stack, I chose to mix various china patterns. My favorite Johnson Brothers Friendly Village is joined by my Great Grandmother’s Haviland wedding china and my Mikasa English Countryside dinnerware. The dishes are perched upon ornate copper chargers placed on top of brocade cream placemats. For additional texture, green straw placemats were added to the ensemble. Bright red apples placed in cream soup bowls add an extra pop of rich color.
Mikasa Golden Tiara crystal glasses complete each setting.
The centerpiece is flanked with antique candelabras.
I really enjoyed creating the centerpiece for my table. There is something so calming about working with flowers. For the container, I chose my Johnson Brothers Friendly Village soup tureen. First, I secured floral foam that had been soaked in water into the container. Second, I added extra water with floral food to the tureen. Then, I started arranging. For the arrangement, I chose deep purple mums, snowball viburnum, yellow spray roses, orange tulips, and bittersweet.
Once the arrangement was finished, I perched it upon some old books for added interest and texture. Orange pumpkins surround the base of the arrangement and a gold tray anchors the entire vignette.
Thank you so much for joining me around my Thanksgiving table. I am always grateful for your visits and gracious comments. Please be sure and visit the other tables on the tour. Take care and have a most blessed and beautiful day!
