Today I'm recycling a post I created for
2009 Thanksgiving Tablescape.
I hope to have new posts to share very soon.
We celebrate Thanksgiving with thankful
hearts for the bountiful blessings of our life.
Talisman enameled silver flatware by Christophe.
Crystal stems in rich amber by Denby.
Some are monogramed in beautiful scripts.
The heirloom napkins were a gift from my mother-in-law. Each have been monogramed by hand and were stitched by my husband's grandmother.
The table cloth is by Yves Delorme in
shades of green and subdued teal blue.
My Tuesday Morning acorns have been pulled into service as place card holders. Fallen leaves from a Red Oak are inscribed with each guest's name using a silver paint pen.
The center piece is a single pillar within a crystal hurricane lantern, a recent thrift find. It is flanked on either side by small white pumpkins, and all sits on a pewter tray.
Dinner will be served from the nearby sideboard in white French porcelain dishes. The antique silver and mother of pearl serving pieces are all individual pieces that I've purchased piece by piece.
A simple glazed container holds a bouquet of tulips, gerber daisies, hypericum berries, and golden thryallis.
Red ware pottery, acorns,
vintage candy containers,
pumpkins, gourds, and more turkeys set the mood for Thanksgiving.
After dinner. . .
dessert will be served in the adjoining sun room.
Coffee and dessert will be served on Richard Ginori china.
