A Time to Give Thanks

Good morning, dear readers. Today, I am joining my talented tablescaping friends to bring you our Thanksgiving tables. Our fearless leader is Rita at Panoply. A list and links to the participants is at the end of this post.

Time is sure flying by so quickly! I cannot believe that Thanksgiving is only a little over two weeks away.

Last week, the weather was gorgeous with warm sunshine and pretty blue skies. It was the perfect setting for an outdoor Thanksgiving tablescape.

The tablecloth I chose had a deep blue color palette accented by orange tones.

Copper chargers provide an anchor for the plate stack. In yesterday’s post, I paired my turkey plates with my Grandmother’s Spode Rosebud Chintz china. You can view that tablescape here. For today’s tablescape, I paired the plates with my Spode Blue Italian plates creating an entirely different look. Each setting is accented with an embordered Crown Linen Design napkin.

A Spode Blue Italian pitcher was the perfect choice for a vessel to hold my arrangement of blooms. I have a weakness for coral roses and can never pass them up. In addition to the roses, red tulips and mums complete the arrangement.

Thank you so much for your visits and kind words. I hope that you have a day full of blessings and joy!

  5. Beautiful Shannon! I’m always thankful for warm sunshine and blue skies that make outdoor dining possible. I love your blue version of your table featuring the Queen’s Myott turkey plates. Your flower arrangement, especially the tulips spilling over your Spode Blue Italian pitcher, are beautiful. I've been admiring those CLD monogrammed napkins, they are lovely. As always, it’s a treat to join you at the table and hop with you. Happy Tuesday. ♥

  7. Love your beautiful bright and cheerful table! I also use my blue and white at Thanksgiving and it's lovely to see your creativity. Gorgeous flowers, too! Love it all 🙂

  8. Shannon, your table is tunning and elegant. I adore your exquisite linens! The napkins and tablecloth are gorgeous!
    I love your arrangement. Reds, corals, in red and white transferware pitcher and tray are lovely.
    Your setting is very pretty, too, and is an excellent backdrop for showcasing your tablescape.
    I enjoy hopping with you. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  9. Shannon, that setting is outstanding for your beautiful tablescape. I love the turkey plates on the blue Spode. The alternating colorway from the tablecloth to the charger, dinner plate and salad makes for a very eye appealing composition. Again, that glowing backdrop is amazing. The floral centerpiece is stunning, thanks to those coral roses! Wishing you a most blessed Thanksgiving. Thank you for joining the hop today.

    Fetching! Can’t take my eyes off this beautiful table.

  11. WOW – What a setting! I would certainly enjoy having dinner at this table. The tablecloth is stunning and the plate stack is perfect for fall – enjoy Thanksgiving!

  12. Shannon, I used my vintage Liberty Blue dishes for the first time for Thanksgiving last year and now love the color with browns, et. Your table is stunning! Love it!

  13. Swoon Shannon, your flower arrangement is gorgeous! The reds, corals, and pinks really pop in the blue and white pitcher and the blue tablecloth is stunning too! How different those plates look today with an entirely different look and feel from yesterday's tablescape! You have been a busy gal this week! The copper chargers are beautiful and the embroidered CL napkins are too pretty to use! Thank you for the incredible eye candy, and you can bet there will be coral roses in my cart the next time I spot some!

  14. WOW! The blues are absolutely beautiful, and I love how they compliment your chargers and the turkey salad plates. I also love your gorgeous centerpiece: All the flowers look fantastic with the blue! You even have your garden styled with pumpkins. What a lovely setting! Do y'all eat outside a lot this time of year?

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  15. Beautiful Shannon. Being able to dine alfresco is the very best for enjoying those beautiful gardens and blue skies. Your floral arrangement is stunning with it's vibrant colors. The copper chargers frame your turkey plates beautifully. Spode Blue Italian pitcher is a gorgeous piece. The monogramed CL napkins caught my eye. A lovely table to enjoy a festive Thanksgiving.

  16. Your blue and white table is lovely and the setting beautiful. so nice to have the sights and sounds of the garden as part of your Thanksgiving meal. Loved how your gorgeous centerpiece picked up the colors in your turkey plates. It really pulls all the elements together. Happy Thanksgiving!

  17. Shannon, this is another beautiful alfresco table setting. I love Spode Blue Italian and it just sings on your table with the gorgeous floral arrangement and the copper chargers. The beautiful blue monogrammed napkins add the perfect touch to your table! Wishing you a blessed season of Thanksgiving!

  18. What a bright and cheerful table all set for Thanksgiving! The Blue Spode Italian dishes along with your Turkey plates is striking! And the copper chargers go perfectly with the Turkey plates! Your centerpiece picks up all the tones from your Turkey plates… stunning!
    How nice to dine alfresco! We are going to do the same here in AZ.
    Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

  19. I love blue and white. Your table is beautiful! The turkey plates are perfect!

  20. Hi Shannon, The contrast of the vibrant fall flowers against your blue and white dishes is stunning–such a pretty outdoor setting! Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction

  21. I don't know what happened to my comment Shannon but I lost it. :(. unfortunately I can't remember what I said…but that is ok cause I don't remember what I ate for dinner. LOL. I love your al fresco table and we eat out almost daily here in Florida and your background of yellow and orange is so pretty. Your blue contrasts so nicely with the coral flowers. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  22. We seemed to have the same inspiration of pairing blues with oranges/coppers. It's a classic combination that I never tire of. The lovely tablecloth — to the floor! — is the perfect base for your mix of dishware accompanied by graceful crystal stemware and beautiful flatware. Can you share the pattern name? The flowers are stunning, full and vibrant. Altogether wonderful!

  23. Stunning Shannon!! Your outdoor setting is wonderful!! The Spode pitcher filled with such a gorgeous bouquet of colorful flowers is fabulous!! The place settings are wonderful and set off with your beautiful napkins. All is so pretty!! Happy Thanksgiving!🧡🍗

  24. Shannon, I am so drawn to your lovely outdoor table since it has so much contrast going on, especially all of the colors of your table among the green of your back yard. Your choice of your bold blue dinnerware with your coral roses are more than stunning and more eye-catching contrast. The bold colors you are using speaks for itself –elegant and classic. The copper chargers and turkey salad plates makes a perfect and unquestionable match. They all are meant to be together. Gorgeous. Happy Thanksgiving!

  25. Gorgeous Shannon! Everything. Really! I love the bold blue tablecloth. And, those copper chargers make a big impact. You probably know how much I love a beautiful centrepiece and yours is stunning!
