A Table Brimming with Blessings

Welcome, dear friends, to my Thanksgiving table brimming with blessings. Today, I am beyond blessed to be joining several of my tablescaping friends to bring you our Thanksgiving tables. You will find the links to all of the participants at the end of this post. I want to give my gratitude to Chloe at Celebrate and Decorate for organizing these blog hops.

This past year has been difficult for so many. We have had to adapt, overcome, and persevere. However, no matter how difficult or bad things may be there are always blessings to be grateful for. I make it a daily practice to end my day recounting at least three blessing that occurred that day. It is my belief that even in difficult times there are always hidden blessings. We just have to take the time and look for them.

After a terrible ice storm crippled most of my state, Saturday was a most beautiful autumn day. The perfect day to set a table of thanksgiving outdoors surrounded by God’s beauty.

For the foundation of my table, I chose a French tablecloth in a deep rose tone.

My favorite turkey plates top each plate stack.

Ralph Lauren napkins and Oneida Michelangelo flatware were added to each placesetting.

The crystal glasssware is Dublin by Godinger.

Flowers from the grocery store along with pheasant feathers placed in an antique copper French jardiniere create a simple centerpiece. I chose to arrange the flowers in a glass jar and place it into the jardiniere.

The autumn colors were just stunning last weekend, and the sunshine streaming through the trees created such a glorious and welcome site.

The freeze line just barely missed us so we are still surrounded by beautiful fall foliage. For several days last week, we had bitterly cold temperatures, heavy rain, and high winds. On Monday, we lost power for about 5 hours. However, we were the fortunate ones. Many of my fellow Oklahomans are still without power and have suffered a great deal of damage due to the ice.

Every day, I feel so blessed to have a loving family and be so fortunate to live surrounded by so much beauty that God has provided for us all to enjoy.

My dear friends, I am so grateful for all of you and want to wish you a most blessed month ahead filled with peace and happiness. Please be sure to visit all of the gorgeous tables. I know you will enjoy the tour! Take care!

  18. What a gorgeous day you had for your photos. There is something about the angle of the Fall sun…that just throws beautiful shadows and enhances colors. Gorgeous table setting, if only the weather holds for Thanksgiving. Lovely! Sandi

  19. Shannon, I can't imagine those still without power after that storm! You were certainly fortunate, and the beauty of your land surrounding your tablescape would never even hint at the destruction the weather brought to areas closeby.
    Your table is beautiful in the alfresco setting. That French copper jardinière is a real beauty! Your combination of plates is a nice surprise of pattern play, as are the RL napkins and French tablecloth. I hope your Thanksgiving season continues to send blessings your way. Each day we remain well I count as a blessing, and am happy my family is well too. As always, it's a pleasure to collaborate alongside you in these tablescapes.

  22. Shannon, I am so glad to hear that you can find several blessings each day that comes and goes. These are challenging times. I was so comforted by your beautiful outdoor tablescape. The french rose colored tablecloth really soothes the soul and contrasts beautifully to brings out the colors in your surroundings and in your centerpiece flowers and lovely salad plates. I can feel God's loving protection in your porch setting. Truly a beautiful place to be. It is a pleasure to blog hop with you during this Thanksgiving season. Have a blessed holiday.

  23. Shannon, would never guess the frightful weather you experienced from the photo's of your lovely al fresco table. Such a pretty fall setting! Especially like how you styled your table, pulling colors from the turkey plate in the tablecloth, etc. Love the plate stack combination of colors and patterns — like the plaid. Hope you have a most happy, and healthy Thanksgiving.
