Happy Tuesday, dear friends! Can you believe that Thanksgiving is only a little over two weeks away? Not to worry though, my tablescaping friends and I have got you covered with lots of inspiration for your Thanksgiving tables. This fun event is being hosted by Rita of Panoply, and links to the participants can be found at the end of this post.
This year’s table is set with a grateful heart. My heart is truly full of gratitude for the many blessings that God has bestowed upon me. In one’s life, no matter how bad things may be, there are always hidden blessings to be found.
“To be grateful is to recognize the Love of God in everything.”- Thomas Merton
A gold charger anchors the plate stack of Spode Blue Italian plates topped with turkey salad plates. The turkey plates were purchased several years ago at T.J. Maxx. I chose not to use a tablecloth for this setting. The wood provides warmth when combined with the deep, rich colors of the French placemats and napkins.
A Crown Linen Design French Bee table runner is placed down the center of the table. It provides the perfect backdrop for the centerpiece. Burgundy candles, pearl embellished orange pumpkins, and Japanese Maple branches provide an added autumnal touch to the simple centerpiece. Purple mums, Autumn Joy Sedum, and nandina branches were gathered from my yard and placed in Spode Blue Italian pitcher.
A few Flow Blue pieces were also added to the table. As you know, I adore anything blue and white.
“Let gratitude be the pillow upon which you kneel to say your nightly prayer.”-Maya Angelou
Mikasa Golden Tiara glassware completes each setting. It was part of my wedding registry and has since been retired.
“I will give the Lord the thanks due to his righteousness, and I will sing praise to the name of the Lord, the Most High.”-Psalm 7:17
“Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.- 1 Chronicles 16:34
This year we will gather at my Dad and Mom’s house for a delicious Thanksgiving dinner. I will be making a few dishes to share and cannot wait to celebrate my blessings with my family.
“Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.-Psalm 100:4
My sweet friends, thank you so much for gathering with me around my table to give thanks for our blessings. Your visits and gracious comments mean so much to me. I wish you a most blessed and peaceful Thanksgiving.
