Welcome to The Tablescaper.
Hope that you and yours are getting ready to spend a wonderful day together.
The concept of Thanksgiving is beautiful.
A day to gather together with those we love and…
…take the time to…
We all lead such crazy busy lives,…
…that it’s just that much more important to pause…
…and be thankful.
There is much to be thankful for.
The inspiration for this table came from the material purchased this summer on an expedition with Kathleen of Cuisine Kathleen. The lanterns are from Christmas Tree last year.
The willow mats were from Nell Hill’s; the tea towels cum napkins were a great find at Christmas Tree this year – 64 cents @!!!!; the dinner plate is by 222 Fifth – Maharana; and the salad plate is by Artistic Accents. The lidded pumpkin was an off season purchase at William Sonoma Outlet and the flatware is by Cambridge.
The goblets are from Walmart, a few years back.
The roosters are from Big Lots, quite a number of years ago. They were in the beginning of my collecting! Big Lots just doesn’t seem to carry the same types of things as they used to.
The pitcher and creamer and sugar are Spode. They were a pre-Black Friday score last year and have been hiding in my basement all year waiting for their big debut!
Wishing you a blessed Thanksgiving.
Tip: One of my favorites. Use material to cover your table instead of a tablecloth. The moment I spied this material back in August (at $3.00 a yard!!!) my mind went to Thanksgiving. That’s another thing. Keep your eyes open. You usually find the best deals – off season.
