I’M READY FOR THANKSGIVING

That post title is a little misleading.  I guess it should read “My Tables Are Ready for Thanksgiving”.  I’m still cooking, but I am close to being finished. 

I’m sharing my third and final Thanksgiving table.  The two tables I previously shared seat 18 people.  I set up a small table in front of the fireplace for four more.

I used the Fall platters as chargers on this table.  I shared pictures of these platters here.

(Dinner Plates: Casa Stone, Autumn Waves; Flatware:  William Rogers, Eternally Yours;           Goblets: Royal Worcester "Evesham [I know the name of this goblet pattern thanks to a comment on another post from Pam at Tea In Texas] Platters: Unmarked)

What is Thanksgiving without a table laden with desserts, so here is the dessert table.

My centerpiece is a banana cake with caramel glaze, made in the mold I won from Cuisine Kathleen last year.  Can you tell it’s a cornucopia?  My son said it looks like a giant dog turd!  Not a very appetizing thought.

There will be cookies on this leaf server.

Under the domed server, there will be individual pumpkin cobblers. (I think my serving pieces are a little confused.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog.  I will link this post to Let’s Dish Wednesday at Cuisine Kathleen, and hopefully, I’ll remember to link to Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch.  Next post, Christmas décor – I hope!  laurie

Oh my, Laurie! So beautiful!
I don't have much fall decor, and my fall tablecloth doesn't fit the table with the leaves in it, so I am just kind of going with 'holiday', towards Christmas.
Happy Thanksgiving!

Love the idea of using the platters as plates! They look terrific and certainly make that little table for four oh so special. Great napkin rings!

Have a blessed Thanksgiving.

Oh, Laurie! This is so pretty. I want to come have Thanksgiving at your house! I love the silverware and those pretty green glass dishes ... and a separate sweets table! And what could be cozier than a table by the fireside? You've thought of all the right touches! I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Kathleen said...

The hostess with the mostess! You amaze me with all you do, so many tables, and all so lovely!

My goodness....I think everything looks spectacular. You are amazing. Had to chuckle over your son's comment. He must have a hilarious sense of humor.

Hope you have a terrific Thanksgiving. You sure have made your decor welcoming. Susan

Beautiful and I love the platters! What time is lunch-seeing this makes me hungry! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family from Arkansas!

Sarah said...

Laurie, the serving table is gorgeous. I like the way your cloth drapes on your table, and all your serving pieces are wonderful. Great job!
If I were joining you, I'd sit at the table for four in front of the fireplace. I like your idea of using the platters as chargers. I'm going to remember that idea!
All the best to you and your family for a festive Thanksgiving. I'm thankful for your friendship.......Sarah

I too love all your tables. The plum color in the napkins against the red (orange?) plates is so pretty. Well, actually, everything is pretty. Every single last detail!
