Welcome to the 219th Tablescape Thursday!
I’d also like to welcome listeners from the Bekah, Lynne, Thursdays show! Thanks so much for stopping by and thanks to Bekah and Lynne for the shoutout today on their mid-morning show! If you’re looking for the home tour of the adorable cottage in the movie, The Holiday, you’ll find it here: Tour Rosehill Cottage from the movie, The Holiday.

Thanksgiving is just one week away! Wow, hard to believe isn’t it? The centerpiece for my Thanksgiving Table this year is a big ole turkey. I spotted him last year in Pottery Barn and just loved him. I passed him by and kind of regretted it.
When he amazingly appeared again (that rarely happens with PB) I snagged him right off.
He somehow grew between the store and home. Seriously! Christmas trees do the same thing between the time you pick them out on the Christmas tree farm and get them home. Have you ever noticed that?
One of the reasons I had coveted Mr. Turkey the year before is because he looks like he was made to go with the turkey tureens I found years ago in Old Time Pottery.
I decorated the table with mercury-glass pumpkins I’ve collected over the last few years. You may remember seeing some of these when I decorated the porch for Halloween.
I save and reuse all my decorations througout the year. Mr. Turkey is sporting a wreath from our 4th Tablescape Party back in September 2008. (That tablescape can be viewed here: Fall table setting.) I also used the wreaths as a base for the pumpkins this year when I decorated the porch for Halloween. Isn’t it fun to find new purposes for the things we collect and use each year? Love that!
Turkey place cards are made from card stock.
Easy tutorial for these can be found here: Never Buy Place Cards for Your Tablescape Again
I use this Spode Woodland china every Thanksgiving replacing the regular Woodland salad plates with turkey salad plates.
Antler flatware is mixed with Spode Woodland flatware for this setting. The dinner plate is shown below.
Napkin rings say “Family” on one side and “Friends” on the other. It’s what Thanksgiving is all about, isn’t it? So thankful for my family and friends, including YOU!
Candlesticks were A Classy Flea find years ago. I’ll be posting about something related to these soon.
A little candlelight…
You may remember these from this past Halloween tablescape: Elegant Halloween Tablescape with Mercury Glass Centerpiece
Happy Thanksgiving friends!
