First of all, Happy Thanksgiving!! I hope your day has been full of family, friends, food, and football!!
We stayed home this year for Thanksgiving. It has been a wonderful day!!
I have had my fall tablescape in place since about mid September. I tweaked it yesterday to make it perfect for Thanksgiving. Here are a few pictures:
For the early fall, I used simple white dishes that go with everything!
The striped napkins are actually hand towels that I folded to serve as a napkin.
I loved the blue and brown stripes for fall. Of course, I had to use my plush pumpkins.
The burlap table runner was a recent find from Antiques at the Loop.
To "tweak it" for Thanksgiving, I switched out the burlap runner for this wooden beaded runner. I got it several years at Target.
I switched out the napkins and added my Spode Woodland salad plates. I have a mixture of these: turkeys, quail, deer, and a hunting dog. I love the rich colors of this pattern. I also removed my everyday flatware and added my silver, Gorhap Buttercup.
I added a paisley napkin and also changed the casual gold goblets to clear goblets by Denby. I suppose I should have added my nicer crystal but I really like the more relaxed look of these glasses. (Plus, we no longer have a formal dining room so the Waterford is packed up for now.) I do love a formal dining room. When we have our "forever home", I hope to have a place to enjoy special family gatherings and display my china.
Thanks for visiting Buttercup Bliss!! I am off to cheer on my Ole Miss Rebels!!!
