A Thanksgiving Tablescape With a View

Welcome to the 376th Tablescape Thursday!

Recently my friend Bonnie, shared some photos of the beautiful table setting she created for Thanksgiving this year. Her dining room overlooks this stunning view!

The gorgeous autumn foliage must have been the inspiration for this wonderful Thanksgiving tablescape.

The beautiful beaded, leaf placemats work so well with the fall foliage centerpiece.

For this year’s Thanksgiving table, Bonnie used dinner plates in the “Plymouth” pattern by Wedgwood for Williams Sonoma and “His Majesty” salad plates by Johnson Brothers. The beautiful candlesticks are “Butler’s Pantry” available at Macy’s.

Here’s a closer view of the beaded placemats…so pretty! Love the colors and the sparkle they add to this setting.

Turkey tureens are so much fun to use for serving soup on Thanksgiving. Love the vintage style of these! Look how beautiful the Johnson Brothers, “His Majesty” plates look with Williams-Sonoma “Plymouth” dinner plates. Love how Bonnie mixed these two patterns to create this beautiful setting!

Bonnie often decorates her beautiful server in this room. It looks so festive for Thanksgiving. I love the pilgrims and indians! Notice how Bonnie used small lamps to add light and interest to this area. I love little lamps like these because you tuck them in almost anywhere you like.

Bonnie is an excellent crafter and makes the most wonderful cards and banners. For Easter one year she created this darling banner for her fireplace.

I love the banner she created this year for Thanksgiving! The painting above the mantel is so perfect for this time of year. Such a gorgeous way to welcome and celebrate fall!

    Wow, Susan, Bonnie sure knows how to put together a table. Every item compliments every other. Very, very beautiful. Love the way the patterned plates look with the beaded place setting. And the napkins are so pretty. Love the colorful, chunky napkin rings too. I guess you must be turning me into a tablescaper, Susan, because I even recognize the flatware! I just wish you and Bonnie could come over to play and demonstrate some lovely tablescapes for me in person.

    I agree about the little lamps on the server. The small bit of atmospheric light makes all the difference. The whole piece is beautifully decorated. And Bonnie, love those sconces by your mantel. Thanks for sharing. What a lovely dinner table. And how wonderful to dine with that incredible view!

  6. What a gorgeous Thanksgiving table and the view takes the setting over the top! Thanks for sharing her table with us, I love her festive autumn banner too!

  7. Just to clarify in case someone is on the hunt, the dinner plates are “Plymouth” by Wedgwood for William-Sonoma and are a different pattern then “Plymouth Oak”. My fall dinnerware is the “Plymouth” pattern purchased quite a few years ago!

  8. Love the setting. Much thought went into the whole scheme. Worth sitting at the table even if nothing was served. Good way to diet! Feast for the eyes!

  9. What a beautiful traditional Thanksgiving setting Susan, Bonnie has beautiful things, to match her beautiful view!

  10. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving dear Susan. I’m sharing my new grandbaby as well as my Tksgiving table in Miami.
    Have a nice weekend. Thanks for the great party.

  11. Oh! I love Bonnie’s gorgeous and classic, traditional my fav table with wonderful elements and great view. I specially love those placemats.

    Oh my, Bonnie is one talented lady. I love her table. I especially love the leaf beaded placemats. Gorgeous. And I love the napkin rings. Do you think she would notice if they disappeared and came to live at my house??? Love the banners! I am keeping this post for future reference. I might have to try one of the banners myself! Thanks for sharing!

  13. Oh, Susan, what a stunning table. The colors, patterns and textures complement each other so well. The centerpiece is perfect. I’d love to be sitting at that table for a holiday: it shows talent and a desire to make everyone’s day extra special. Thank you for sharing this.

  14. I am always excited when I can add to the amazing displays at your parties. To see the Johnson Brothers above made me smile. Brown transferware is my favorite!!! Such a beautiful table with natural elements.
    Thanks for hosting! kim

  15. Bonnie’s table is lovely. The placemats are a beautiful addition to this wonderfully traditional Thanksgiving table.

    It has been way too long since I have posted a tablescape. I rather enjoyed creating the Thanksgiving tablescape I posted today. I shared a picture of my newborn granddaughter too, she was born in the wee hours of this morning. I hope to post a few new tablescapes for the Christmas Season and I am looking forward to sharing them here.

  16. Bonnie’s Thanksgiving table and view are breathtaking! Hope you had a great Thanksgiving Susan. Have a nice weekend and thanks for hosting.

  17. I’m so thankful to you for posting my table, Susan! And of course, for your blog – a beautiful inspiration to us all.
    Time for us to think about a Christmas table now!
