Welcome to the Tablescaper.
We usually think of large groups of people gathered around our table at Thanksgiving.
Sometimes, Thanksgiving is not a day of many people.
Perhaps, it’s just a table for two.
This table for two seemed the perfect opportunity to showcase these amazing teal dishes that I picked up in a thrift store this Summer. Unfortunately there weren’t many.
Regardless of your numbers,…
…you can still celebrate in style.
I love the richness of this table for two.
The tablecloth echoes the dramatic colors of the attending fowl.
The pheasant proudly preside over the lushness.
Regardless of the number around your table this Thanksgiving…
I hope that yours is blessed.
Many long years ago, when I first moved into my home, I hosted my first Thanksgiving. It was long before my tablescaping days, but I put together these little cornucopias which were at each person’s place.
I guess it was shades of things to come! LOL!
Ok, so the low down on the origins of this table. I’ve had the turkey plates for many years. They were a dollar store purchase. As I was playing around with all of my Thanksgiving natured items, I couldn’t get over how well the little turkey plates went with this tablecloth. I believe the cloth is by Raymond Waites, but it’s not labeled so I’m not sure. The chargers are from Target. I love how the flatware (HomeGoods) mirrors the edge of the charger. As I said in the post, the teal plates are from a thrift shop. It must have been a regular dining set, from Italy, and got donated when the pieces started breaking. Despite its odd numbers of items, I couldn’t resist it’ color. Shortly thereafter I came across the napkins in HomeGoods. Clearly they had to go with the teal dishes, so they followed me home. The purple dinner plates, most of the pheasants, and the brown napkins were from HomeGoods a year or so ago. The two little salt and pepper pheasants that sit upon the footed pheasant cake plate were my Mom’s. She always had them on her Thanksgiving table. What else? Oh, the turned wood candlestick holders were bought a year or so ago at our local consignment shop. When I see them in boutiques and antique stores, I know I got a bargain. The goblets were from Horchow and the napkin rings (metal and leather!) were a quarter a piece the other day at Christmas Tree.
