Thankgiving: Setting The Table



I am so corny.
I LOVE setting the table for company,
especially a grand daddy of a day like Thanksgiving.

I typically never do it the same.
Never.

I like to mix and match chargers, place mats, dishes and
even my grandmothers old monkey pod square plates from Hong Kong.

I'd like to think it sharpens my creative skills.
Not sure about that.
But I love to make a table pretty.

I also like to use things I already have and use greenery from outside.

Here is the table set for Thanksgiving 2007.
Can you tell I was into zebra at the time?

Rough cut strips of burlap with zebra strips of fabric underneath,
as table runners


Am I the only dork who actually likes to take pictures
of my table before all the fun starts?

Here is the table set for Thanksgiving 2008.


Same burlap rough edged fabric strips as table runners

Ditched the zebra, introduced mercury glass
Sprigs from the back yard

No, this next one is NOT Thanksgiving but
swap out the yellow daffodils and you've got a simple Thanksgiving Table
anyone could pull together

3 simple square glass vases
1 stem in each vase
(I did buy these guys at my local Trader Joe's)


My lovely sister in law got me these
timeless monogrammed napkins one Christmas.


I have used them countless ways.
Here I clipped some evergreen from the front,
tied it up with twine
and a mailing tag
with a hand drawn monogram for each guest.

I have yet to set our Thanksgiving table this year.
You know I'll be taking pictures, though.

Just priming the pump with this post.

Share with me ways you make your table setting extra special.

As always,


for visiting.

  12. So if you looking for a Braun Epilator 7681 online this post will assist you in your quest to get a wonderful offer on your buy.
    Braun epilators have captured a share of consumers and reviewers note that
    epilators bearing the Braun logo tend to win product pricing wars frequently.
