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.

Some of you know that we host 30 family members in our home for Thanksgiving, so I’ve been doing a lot of preparin’ for the gatherin’, and I’m sharing some of my preparations on this post.

I love using these Fall platters as chargers/placemats.  Some of you may recall that I got them at an auction last year for $6.00 each.  When I told the auctioneer I wanted all six of them, everybody acted like I was crazy and wanted to know what I was going to do with six platters.  I hope they read my blog, because I know they will be so sorry they didn’t buy the platters.
