MORE THANKSGIVING TABLES

Thanksgiving Table-Bargain Decorating with Laurie
I shared my Thanksgiving table for 10 last week.  You can see that here.  (I’ve already changed it a little bit!)  Remember, we seat 30 people for Thanksgiving.  Today, I’m sharing two more of the tables.

On this table in our sunroom, I used gold beaded chargers (One Kings Lane) under Spode  dinner plates (Tuesday Morning long ago).  There may be a couple of Johnson Brothers plates mixed in.  The flatware was our wedding selection (Towle, Old Master).

The stemware are different jewel colors (you know I can’t have everything match!).  Pewter turkeys hold the napkins.  I used glass fruit in the centerpiece.

I love these little fruit plates I used for coasters.  They don’t have a maker or pattern name on the back.  I got them at an estate sale several years ago.  (Do you get tired of reading “at an estate sale” on my blog?)

I also got the cranberry hurricane at an estate sale some time ago, and the little gold-rimmed, cranberry colored drink glasses, which I used with battery operated votives, were also from an estate sale.

I love the way all of the different colored stemware looks, marching down the table.  The gold-rimmed butter plates were my grandmothers and have her monogram on them.

I set a table for three on the game table in our family room.  For the centerpiece, I used a hurricane with painted Fall colored trees.

The chargers were from Wal Mart a few years ago, and metal leaf-shaped napkin rings hold napkins I got at a Pier One sale years ago.

The backs of the dinner plates read, “Booths, England” (antique store). The forks belonged to my grandmother, and the knives (tag sale) are William Rogers Eternally Yours.Thanksgiving Table-Bargain Decorating with Laurie
The stems were a Tuesday Morning purchase about five years ago.

Thanksgiving Table-Bargain Decorating with Laurie
On Facebook, I said I was going to share the changes I made to the table I posted last week, but this post just got too long.  Tuesday, I will share two more of the Thanksgiving tables, along with the little changes I made to the table for ten.
I’m making progress on the cooking, and it looks like we’ll be able to give thanks on time again this year.  I am so thankful for those of you who read my blog.  If you get too busy to come back for Tuesday’s post, I want to wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving Day.

I don't know how you do it Laurie! So many beautiful places to sit, and so many places for you to set!! I know you find great joy in using so many of your beautiful things, but they have to be washed and put away and oh my all the linens! It must literally take you weeks to prepare and recover! But what a great family tradition for your group, I know everyone is eager in anticipation this week, have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Everything looks perfect!

I did so little decorating for Fall, I did not bother to take pics.
Wishing you and yours a Very Happy Thanksgiving!
