BACK-T0-SCHOOL TABLESCAPE

 
 
 


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.

THE LAST OF THE 2014 THINKSGIVING TABLES

Thanksgiving Table for 5-1
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.

MORE THANKSGIVING TABLES

Thanksgiving Table for 8-1
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.

THANKSGIVING TABLE WITH BLING

Thanksgiving Table
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.

MORE THANKSGIVING DECOR

I love my new sign, which I hung over the ranges in the kitchen.  "In Everything Give Thanks" is painted on an old piece of metal.  It was a gift from a secret pal.

Last month, Edgar Alan Poe was on our mantel.  Along with the crows and owls, Edgar has moved out, and I’ve decorated the mantel for Thanksgiving.

ELEGANT PUMPKIN TABLESCAPE

Fall Table-Bargain Decorating with Laurie
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.
