THE LAST OF THE 2014 THINKSGIVING TABLES

Thanksgiving Tablecapes
I’ve already shared several of our Thanksgiving tables here and here.  In this post, I’m sharing the last of the 30 place settings for Thanksgiving dinner.  This table for five is on the “high-low” table in front of the sofa in the family room.  In these photos, it is position at its normal coffee table height.  On Thanksgiving, I’ll raise it to dining table height.

I used our Fall platters as chargers/placemats on this table.

The china pattern is Ridgeway England, Apple Blossom, which I bought at a charity tag sale long, long ago.  William & Rogers, Eternally Yours flatware and cobalt blue stems complete each setting.

The cranberry colored hurricane is the companion to the one I used on the table for 8 in my previous post.

In front of the fireplace, I used a fold up table covered in a burlap cloth.

The dinner plates (from an estate sale) are Ascot by Wood & Sons.

There is a different scene on each plate.

I love these emerald green stems I purchased last year “at an estate sale” (there are those words again).

Thanksgiving Tablescapes-Bargain Decorating with Laurie


When we host holiday dinners, I try to make all of the tables have some similarities.  This table for 10 is the one I posted last week.  When I had finished the other tables, I realized that the centerpiece on this table looked a little unfinished compared to the other tables, so I added a hurricane over the center candle.  Then, I remembered these little berries on wire that I had in my Christmas stash, and shockingly, I was able to find them.  I wrapped them around the bases of the candles on all of the tables.
Whew!  I’m finished, with the exception of the cooking, and I’m close to being finished with that.  Thank you so much for visiting me.  Wishing all of my American readers a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration. 

Due to the holiday, these blogs may not be partying this week, but if they are, I will be linking to Centerpiece Wednesday at The Style Sisters and Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch

Lovely job Laurie. I am almost tired just thinking about you setting up all of those tables.
