Thanksgiving Tablescape with Spode, Woodland China

Welcome to the 65th Tablescape Thursday!

With Thanksgiving only a week away, I thought I’d share a “hunt themed” Thanksgiving tablescape this evening. This tablescape is similar to the one I did last year, but I’ve changed quite a few things and added a bit more whimsy.

Let’s dim the lights a bit…

Acorn tureens from Williams-Sonoma are just right for a hearty Butternut Squash Soup.

Thanksgiving Table Setting with Spode Woodland China

Candlelight didn’t do the colors in the Woodland china justice, so I took these next two pics during daylight hours so you could see the true colors.

Quite a difference, isn’t it?

Flatware is by Spode, and is in the Woodland pattern. It was especially created to coordinate with this Spode Woodland china but really looks beautiful paired with almost any china.

Another addition to my Thanksgiving table this year are these little silverplate duck knife rests…I just love ‘em.

Duck knife rests

Recently I found three Waterford, Araglin wine glasses for $20 a stem in a local antique store. I was definitely doing my happy dance since Araglin is the pattern I collect. This is the first table I’ve created for a Tablescape Thursday where I’ve used three pieces of stemware at each place setting…going fancy for this one.

Pine cone napkin rings continue our woodsy, hunt theme.  I’ve added a little piece of glittery ribbon for just a touch of glamour. Do you see the leaf cut-work design surrounding the edge of our napkins?

I loved using Leyland Cypress and Nandina (Firepower) in my Thanksgiving tablescape last year, so I decided to use it again.

Pheasant centerpiece with antler candlesticks

This year I’ve stepped it up a bit with the addition of pheasant feathers…perfect for our Woodland china.

I used a pretty cachepot I already had for this centerpiece.

You may remember these tall red candlesticks.  I’ve used them in tablescapes many times before. For our hunt themed tablescape, I’ve topped them with faux antler pillar holders from Kohls.  Looking at this pic I’m thinking I should have tucked a little greenery in around the candle…an idea for next year.

Thanksgiving Tablescape with Nandina and Pheasant Feathers

These guys were on my table last Thanksgiving, too. This year I filled in around them with a little Leyland Cypress. They look as if we’ve caught them walking through the woods.

Mr. Duck looks as if he just came ashore to rest a bit.

I have a small, wood box collection…love the warmth of the old boxes.

The box provided some additional height for our feathered friend.

    Spode has flatware to go with china!??? It is fabulous! I used Spode tonight too and with my antique French knife rests from a great place New Orleans. I'll definitely have to look for flatware. Your table is just beautiful and anyone who is joining you for Thanksgiving is truly blessed to enjoy such beauty.

The pheasant feathers are a wonderful addition. I always like a hunt theme table. The woodsy feel is so warm and inviting. Makes me want to buy a set of this Spode. Thank you for sharing this table this week. It's given me some ideas for my Thanksgiving table that I've yet to plan. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. All the best! ~ Sarah

    Well done Girl. Happy Thanksgiving to you too!

  26. Your Thanksgiving table is such an array of fabulous china, crystal and accessories…just beautiful!

  27. Sue (Someone's Mom) says:

    I always feel a bit like hitting the delete button on my tablescape after I see yours, but then I remember that I no longer have a formal dining room and that my style is entirely different in this house than in some of my other houses. With that said, you amaze me every week with how stunning your room is and how beautifully you pull it all together. I'm very thankful to have found you and TT, I'm having a great time pulling things out that I haven't used in years!

    Sue

    Everything is ABSOLUTELY beautiful! I love it all! I'm a fan of red, so I love your walls, and your venetian mirror is to die for. I bought my daughter one for her bathroom that is small but goregous! Thanks for sharing your beauty and your talent!

  42. Lady Katherine says:

    Adore the acorns tureens, and Mr. Squirrel ! Napkins are lovely!! Love those knife rest! The antlers, I'd love beads around them. lol They look great with the lovely candlesticks. The flatware is wonderful! Just beautiful, Susan! Come make my table and take me to Cracker Barrel for Mr. Squirrel!

  43. Beautiful! I'm so glad you took photos of those plate in natural light, they are so beautiful and such a great coloring.

    I love the little pilgrim salt and pepper shakers. I don't believe we have a publix here, or a hobby lobby :-(

    But thank you for sharing them with us all.

  44. Blogging To A Better Bonnie says:

    Absolutely breathtaking! Seems I'm not the only one to be happily surprised with the pheasant feathers in the centerpiece. I thought the individual acorn soup tureens were my favorites until I saw the silverware. You've thought of every detail… but one. How do you dare eat at this lovely table when all you want to do is admire it? ;-).

  45. The Barnett Family says:

    Once again, you have out done yourself with your beautiful TT….every detail to perfection! Love the little duck knife rests…too cute!!! Love using feathers in arrangements too. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!!!

    Blessings~

  50. Your table is lovely as always! I am excited to be participating for the first time!!

  51. Hi Susan,
    What a beautiful table setting. I love that Woodland china. You are truly talented. Everything is so lovely. And it must take time to set it all up so we appreciate your hard work. I'm drooling looking at it all – I didn't even know there was such a thing as "knife rests"!!!
    I guess we're never too old to learn something new.

    Have a great evening!

  59. Susan-There are just too many delicious details for words! I REALLY would love to have some Woodland china! It would just be perfect for my family–I might even let Beloved bring some of his wild game home :)There's a thought–a new bargaining chip! Love those antler pillars! Thanks for having us over :)

  60. Gorgeous Susan! Absolutely Gorgeous! I actually have some left over arborvitae stems from the porch decor. I might just have to copy this tablescape for our Tksgiving table! :) Thank you for your constant inspiration!

  61. Susan (Between Naps on the Porch) says:

    Anonymous, I don't get paid by anyone to use their products, thus, no disclosure.

  76. Dearest Susan….only YOU, Oh Diva of the Dishes, could make a "woodsy, hunt theme" look soooo glamorous! This is an outstanding tablescape, Hon! You are the QUEEN!

    I spotted those little spoon rests on the table right away. They're perfect for your theme of the evening & so cute!

    How lucky are you for finding additions your Waterford stemware for such a great price! I want to go shopping with you.
    BTW, I did find a match to my single Waterford napkin ring on Ebay, thanks to your suggestion. :D Now at least I can use them for when the 2 of us sit down to a special table setting. I'm keeping my eye out for more though.

    Your centerpiece of Leyland Cypress and Nandina looks awesome. I'm going to have to go for a walk in the woods with my clippers to find something thing similar.
    Oh & I remember the Publix commercials with the S&P shakers! Cute!!

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family, Susan. I am SO thankful for YOU & all that you do for the dish lovers of blogland.

  92. This is just too beautiful for words. But I will say that if I were eating Thanksgiving Dinner at this table, I'd probably eat a lot less than if I were eating on the styrofoam plates we usually use for dinner! lol

  93. Cass @ That Old House says:

    I swoon.
    No, really — I do. Just SO gorgeous and lush. Makes my head spin!

    Susan, your tablescape really inspired me to get off my behind and create a tablescape of my own! Your table is amazing. I love the Spode Woodland pattern and always have. The brown edge reminds me of my brown edge on the Harvest plates. Anyway, that photo shoot knocked my socks off. Thank you for hosting this event.

  107. I like alot on tonight's table. The centerpiece is my favorite, but I also like the birds, the silverware, crystal & soup tureens. Also, I've started working on what we discussed. Should hopefully be done with it in the next week or so.

  108. Susan-Wow, fantastic tablescape…beautiful, elegant, and wuch a fall thanksgiving feel. I've never seen wooland flatware, what a nice detail, all so cute.

  109. Kathryn @ Bonafide Southern says:

    Susan, my week seems to revolve around Tablescape Thursday! When it's not the official "Tablescaping" day, I find myself constantly thinking about tablescaping or planning a tablescape or shopping for a tablescape. I just LOVE this!

    Now, you really outdid yourself with your table this week. Everything looks absolutely perfect. Of all the beautiful things on your table, I'd have to say my favorite is the duck knife rests. They're so unique and oh so pretty! Thanks for hostessing this weekly event! Happy TT to you!

  110. Beverly@ My Sew Sweet Studio says:

    Wow! A fabulous Thanksgiving table. I loved so many elements, I can't mention all. It is so elegant, your guest will feel so special. You really know how to put things together for your theme. The little squirel with the acorns got my heart. Thanks for sharing your talent and may you have a blessed Thanksgiving.

  111. Life on Bonnie Lane says:

    I would never have thought that a hunt theme could be so elegant and beautiful, even feminine! But you certainly achieve all of that here. I love so many things about it, but especially the mosaic votives, napkins, and that incredibly gorgeous centerpiece with the feathers! Well done!

    Susan, I love your Woodland Spode and all the lushness of this table. It is truly nature's bounty… and the cute soup dishes! Just the whole thing… perfect! I want to come to your house for Thanksgiving!!!

    XO,

    Sheila :-)

  114. Oh my gosh! That is the prettiest table I've ever seen! Better than in any magazine! Gotta mention the squirrel is so cute too! Wow the whole table and room are just amazing!!!!!! I Love Your Place!

  115. Susan, This is the most beautiful tablescape I have ever seen. I love everything and I am headed to Kohls to look for the antler candle holder. Thanks for the many inspirations.

  116. I'm from the UK and until I'd discovered your blog I had never heard of Tablescapes. It's something we don't have here. We also don't have the wonderful selection of dishes you have to choose from (I'm particularly jealous of your soup dishes!). You set a lovely table – Happy Thanksgiving when it comes.

  117. Well, sorry i missed this one but let me tell you , certainly inspires me for my Xmas tea!

    I have no idea how i stumbled upon your blog- it was a click from a click from a click…hahah but when i saw the pictures of your table I fell in LOVE (it was the mirror that i've been eyeing so long for at auctions/ scott's antique)

    I HAD TO DO A TRIPLE TAKE when i saw your chandelier!!!! I HAVE THE SAME EXACT ONE!!!! i kept looking at your picture and back to MY chandelier hanging above me!! Gallery 63??? don't even know if you are from the same state but HOW WEIRD if so! i'm curious to know where it's from!

    you can see pictures of mine in this post:

    Love your blog, so happy to be a new follower!

  120. Where can I find the flatware??? I've looked everywhere. Thanks. Table is AMAZING. I'm copying it this year!

  121. I just found this website a couple of weeks ago looking for deals on the Spode Woodland dishes. I love the table setting and the little acorn soup bowls are perfect with it. Too bad Williams Sonoma doesn’t make them any more. Your dining room and the complete table is perfect. I’m now hooked on this site.

  122. I was looking for a Thanksgiving picture to send to my American friends and came across this beautiful post. I am speechless from all this beauty and aesthetics! This is amazing and it’s really hard to take eyes off it! Thank you and have a Happy Thanksgiving!

I'd love to hear from you! Please leave a comment!
