I have been waiting for this time of week to roll around so I could join Susan for Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps On The Porch. Susan, thank you for hosting my favorite meme.
What is Thanksgiving without a turkey or two or three...
I decided to use orange loosely woven placemats instead of a tablecloth, thinking they would show the plates off better. I had a hard time choosing the napkins, should they be a solid orange or brown or a plaid orange/cream/green. The plaid won out! The turkey napkin holders were a must, when else would I be able to use them?
The dinner and salad plates are Queen's Thanksgiving by Myott Factory. I found these on sale at TJMaxx. I love the muted colors in the plates.
Don't you love those colors?
The place setting includes the dinner and salad plates, tall sherbet, water glass and a small wine glass.
The stemware is hard to see, the water glass is pale lime with an amber stem and orange base, the small wine glass is a darker shade of lime. I do not know the maker or pattern of either.
The sherbets will be used for a pumpkin mousse. I don't know the maker or pattern, haven't had time to look them up.
I am using Oneida Sterling, pattern is Afterglow 1956.
The stuffing will find it's way into the covered white turkey casserole.
Finally, the centerpiece...another covered turkey dish and salt/pepper shakers flanked by some tall candlesticks with short candles. The table is fairly small so there really is no room for flowers. Now I don't have to stand guard over two cats that are obsessed with fresh flowers!
Thank you for taking the time to look at my blog. A special thank you to all who leave a comment, I will reciprocate.

I forgot to add the mini pumpkins and little bouquet of leaves, last night, so here is what the table is supposed to look like!
