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.

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.

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.

That post title is a little misleading.  I guess it should read “My Tables Are Ready for Thanksgiving”.  I’m still cooking, but I am close to being finished. 
I’m sharing my third and final Thanksgiving table.  The two tables I previously shared seat 18 people.  I set up a small table in front of the fireplace for four more.

I used the Fall platters as chargers on this table.  I shared pictures of these platters here.

What is Thanksgiving without a table laden with desserts, so here is the dessert table.

My centerpiece is a banana cake with caramel glaze, made in the mold I won from Cuisine Kathleen last year.  Can you tell it’s a cornucopia?  My son said it looks like a giant dog turd!  Not a very appetizing thought.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog.  I will link this post to Let’s Dish Wednesday at Cuisine Kathleen, and hopefully, I’ll remember to link to Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch.  Next post, Christmas décor – I hope!  laurie

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.
