I'm joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.

Since we host approximately 30 people for holiday dinners. I am about half way finished with table settings for Thanksgiving dinner, so today I'm sharing two of my Thanksgiving tablescapes. (Of course, I have barely begun the cooking!)

This table is set in our family room.

I don't have enough matching dishes for ten people, so I've used different dishes on each end of the table. (Square plates:Certified International, Pamela Gladding; Other dinner plates: Ascot by Wood & Sons; My mother's flatware; cranberry stemware: a garage sale; one set of salt & pepper shakers were my mother's; the set in the little carrier was from a flea market)

I've set this table in the sunroom.

(Bowls: Certified International, Pamela Gladding; Dinner Plates: J.C. Penney Home Collection; Green stemware: wedding gifts 40 years ago; "turkey" napkins: Craft Fair; turkey napkin rings-Going out of Business Sale at a gift store; Flatware: estate sale)

Gravy tureen: yard sale; Indian salt & pepper: I have no idea; Pumpkin salt & pepper: flea market; tea pitcher: estate sale; turkey tureen for centerpiece: $5 at a gift store, because it has a chip on the base)

Click over to Between Naps on the Porch to find links to some wonderful tablescapes. Thank you so much for coming to see my tablescapes. Now, I'd better go start cooking! laurie
