Each year, I have a Back-to-School dinner celebration for our school-aged grandchildren. (You can see my fireplace mantel back-to-school décor here.) This year, for the first time, they will all be attending the same school.

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 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.

The first of the 2014 Thanksgiving tablescapes is done. It’s a very simple table, but it does have some bling. I normally don’t bring out the bling until the Christmas season, but I was inspired to bring it out for Thanksgiving this year.

Last week, I shared some of my past Thanksgiving tablescapes. You can see that post here. As I said, I’ve been blogging for a long time, and I serve Thanksgiving dinner to a lot of people, so I have some more tablescapes to share.

Pilgrims and Native Americans are getting together all around our house.
The metal picnic basket is filled with Pilgrims and Native Americans gathering to give thanks.

I'm re-posting one of our Thanksgiving tables from 2012. We host about 30 people for Thanksgiving dinner, so I have a lot of tables to post!
Pewter turkey napkin holders were used to secure the plaid napkins.

Can a tablescape featuring pumpkins be used for an elegant dinner? This pumpkin table was for a dinner I served last year, and I'm posting it again today. Although, gold is normally my go-to color for Fall, when I got a couple of mercury glass pumpkins on sale, it made me think outside the box about this table.

As I said on Facebook the other day, I hope there is a strong (and good-looking) fireman down there, waiting to catch me, because I’m still Falling at my house.
I’ve added Fall colors to the shelf above the range alcove in our kitchen.
