A Thanksgiving Table Setting



Hello Friends!
Happy Thanksgiving to you! I'm sending out my best wishes for a fantastic Thanksgiving early because I will not be back before Thanksgiving!

Since the Thanksgiving holiday centers itself around the dinning room table, I thought it would be a great time to put together a table setting to share with you!


I used a vintage grain sack towel as a runner and then added my gorgeous anthropologie taper candle holders. To add some warmth to the table, I used my new vintage english tea cups I bought from French Larkspur. They are a beautiful shade of brown and remind me of the newer monogrammed mugs from anthropologie. I decided I was truly in love with the color after seeing Lara's post on Chai Tea and Pumpkin Muffins... you'll have to check out her post to see what I'm talking about. I'm enjoying drinking coffee from my new tea cups every morning!


Instead of drinking out of the tea cups for this occasion I used them as vases and added colorful roses to them. I used my French antique plates that I had picked up at an antique store and I've also added my favorite drinking glasses from Anthropologie. Napkins are traditionally added to the side of a the plate but I tucked mine in between the salad and dinner plate. A naturally shed antler was a perfect fit for this setting.


Oh, I almost forgot... did you notice my blue door? I forgot that it had a pretty light shade of grey on the back side. I added hydrangeas to a basket and hung it on the door. It's the same basket my daughter used in her little red riding hood photo shoot.

I wanted to let you all know that you are on my list of things I am thankful for! I am so grateful to have company like you in my life! Thank you for spending your time with me and leaving me such thoughtful comments! You sure know how to make a girl feel good!

Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours!

until next time,
