As I said last week, we will be hosting 20 people for Thanksgiving dinner.  I posted one of our Thanksgiving tables in my previous post.  This is the second of three Thanksgiving tables at my house.  When I host 20 people, I have to put the place settings kind of close together, but it is my opinion that a scrunched, well-fed family is a happy family.

You’ve been looking at this centerpiece on my blog since mid-October.  I forgot to take a close up picture of it for this post, so I’m sharing a picture of the centerpiece from a tablescape on a previous post.

I’m joining Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for Table Top Tuesday.
Thank you for coming to see a second Thanksgiving table at my house.  Stay tuned for the third and final Thanksgiving table, coming to this blog soon.  laurie

Very Pretty as always - I need some of your decorating talent.
Also, need some of our energy.
I had half that many on Sat. and I am still tired. :-D
Have a great week.

That is suppose to be "need some of your energy". :D

You are truly inspiring me for my 1st and only Thanksgiving table this year. Love that centerpiece!

Happy the guest at any of your tables! I love the Lenox glasses. Are they considered water goblets or ice tea goblets?

Hi Laurie! :)

As always! You have set a gorgeous table. I love the pumpkins in the boxes. So lovely!

Happy Thanksgiving!

You can get THREE tables looking fabulous, and I'm struggling with just one. I have lost the table groove just as assuredly as I've lost the yakking groove. God must be trying to tell me something...

I love this one, and I love the Moonspun. I recognized it immediately because that's what I have for wedding crystal.

Laurie, your table is lovely. I like the boxes filled with the pumpkins and leaves. They make a great centerpiece for the long table. I'm always in awe of the number of guests you have for celebrations.
Happy Thanksgiving.........Sarah
