Thanksgiving Table


Wishing all my family and friends a very Happy Thanksgiving!




I started out with a pashmina in fall colors...I forgot to take a photo of it before setting the table. This was found at Goodwill last year for $1.99. Yes, I used the same linen napkins as I did last week! The turkey napkin rings, turkey dish and salt/pepper shakers were from an auction.




The dinner and dessert plates are Myott Queen's Thanksgiving pattern, bought on sale at TJMaxx a few years ago. The raised bordered salad plate are some I have used in several other posts, these were bought at Goodwill a couple of years ago. I don't know who the maker or pattern is.


The brown glassware was found at Goodwill on senior day, so that meant 25% off, which means each piece was 37¢! It is probably either Anchor Hocking or Libbey.



The flatware is a pearly light brown from World Market.



The centerpiece is just organic items I had around the house. I put them in a wooden tray which is raised on old books. The tall candle holders are from either TJMaxx or HomeGoods. The mercury glass candle holders are thrift store finds. I used them to hold those infamous mini white pumpkins...I told you I'd get my money's worth out of them!


Thank you for visiting this week. Hope you found it interesting enough to come back again.

Hi Marigene!

Wanted to stop by and wish you a good Thanksgiving. Your goblets are beautiful, and I like the brown theme. Candlesticks are so pretty. The whole wooden tray thing is great. I want the world to stop for a couple of days so I can catch up!

This is stunning, Marigene! The pashmina is such a great idea to add the rustic colors of fall. All of your accessories are beautiful! You are gong to get a lot of compliments on this one!

Happy Thanksgiving, my friend!

XO,
Jane

Hope you all have a good Thanksgiving!!

You got that flatware at World Market??!??!!! It's beautiful!!! I will have to check them out. I don't have any extra money to spend right now, but I hope they still have it in a few months. Great table, Miss Marigene, and I hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving "in the middle of nowhere." :-)

Marigene,

You have set such a beautiful table!! Your brown goblets are Noritake Provincial!! (I used to have a whole set, from my wedding registry at Macy's. But a few years ago I got rid of my old stoneware, and then I didn't have anything that it matched anymore. Now I wish I had it back. Isn't that the way it always is?)
Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!

Ha Ha, I am also getting a lot of use out of my wee white pumpkins. The flatware is lovely, and I could easily start collecting it like I do dishes! The turkeys and turkey plates are perfect for your holiday dinner. Wishing you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving.

Hi, Marigene. Your table is beautiful--I love, love, love your dishes! Happy Thanksgiving!

Jacqueline said...

This is just gorgeous! Those turkey plates are wonderful. I hadn't ever even thought of having turkey plates until I started blogging and last year I just fell in love with everyone's. I found my little salad plates that I already posted at TJ Maxx this year but no dinner plates. Wish I could have found more.

Your natural centerpiece is gorgeous and with those little turkey salt and pepper shakers, it is wonderful.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Beautiful turkey table.....looks so "professional", like maybe at the White House; certainly not my house. Mine won't even compare but I sure wish you all were here with us tomorrow.

Very clever to use books to raise your pretty centerpiece, Marigene. Love the Queen's plates, I have them too and I like your napkin rings....Christine

Rettabug said...

So many beautiful items on this table, Marigene...I don't know where to start!
I love your flatware & must make a point of checking that out at WM.
I almost bought that Myott Queen's Thanksgiving pattern last year. Now I wish I had. :(

All your rich colors blend so nicely.
Have a wonderfully blessed Thanksgiving, Hon,
fondly,

I love your table and all of those darling turkeys. That flatware is wonderful. I saw that at World Market, do you really like it? It sure looks perfect for this setting.

You set a beautiful table Marigene. Love the little turkeys. I've always loved those plates.

Barbara said...

What a beautiful table! I've never seen those plates before either. Everything looks perfect; eating a Thanksgiving dinner in that setting would be a delight.

Denise at Forest Manor said...

Marigene, this really is just so pretty! All the little touches added up to a perfect tablescape. Your centerpiece is great -- I really like to use books as decoration, too (not to mention reading them, as well). :) I, too, love the white pumpkins; I had some larger ones in my house this fall. I've seen the Myott Queen's "Thanksgiving" dishes so much this year; they really are pretty. I love the border with the berries, acorns and oak leaves. I enjoy transferware because the pieces remind me of a painting.

Thanks for visiting me and for your kind comments. Have a great week!

Marigene, you've done it again! I love the natural, organic touch to your Thanksgiving table. Both my tables this year leaned toward the rustic and organic. Stay tuned for the 2nd table.
