A Thanksgiving Table ~ Blue and White Inspired


Well the dining room redecorating is almost to completion. I just have a few more items to tweak and Mr. RL has to put up the wainscoting, I am hopeful that it will be very soon. But it has been awhile since I last put together a tablescape, and it happens to be only two weeks before turkey day, I just couldn't resist setting a Thanksgiving table using some of my new blue transferware dishes I purchased the other day at the Christmas Tree Shop. They had a 20% off week and I bought these new dishes on the tail end of that sale.


I paired the blue and white salad plates with the white Country Cupboard plates I received from the Pfaltzgraff people last year along with some really old blue and white plates I bought back in my 20's. I think they look lovely resting on the new Devon Lake place mates from Williambsburg. The napkins and table runner were closeout buys from Williams-Sonoma a few years back, and they just happen to coordinate perfectly with the autumn feel of the tablescape.



Here is a sneaky peaky at the one dining room wall which was once the home to a rather large oil painting in the old red dining room.



The silver server was a yard sale find from about two years ago...shhhh...it was only 5 dollars!





I made good use of my beautiful new coffee pot by filling it with pretty faux flowers.





My glassware is pretty old too. I bought it about 13 years ago at Target.




And that is my table set for a fall feast!  I am not actually entertaining for Thanksgiving this year, my shtick is Christmas Eve. This year Thanksgiving is going to be held at my sister-in-law's home and she will be hosting over forty for dinner! God Bless her right? 

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays and I plan to savor it before the Christmas rush begins. I know there won't be much time since it falls so late in the month this year, but I am going to do my best to give Thanksgiving the attention it rightfully deserves!  

Hope you enjoying a wonderful week!

  3. I love the sneak peek at the dining room. and love the blue with that orange in the table scape. I just think all of it is gorgeous. I know you are getting excited about it. That blue and white pattern is so lovely. I say that, but have no blue stuff, but love to see it in other peoples home. Those white dishes on the wall is up my alley. I am into all white ironstone and no color in my dishes, that way I can add anything I choose to mix it up. I can't wait for your big reveal. So far I love it Barbara!!!

  4. Hello from another Barbara :) I popped over here from BNOTP to see your tablescape - and it is beautiful! I love my house best in the autumn because the pumpkin colors compliment the blues of my home's decor. Just like your table.

  5. Oh, Miz Barbara- with a table that pretty you really need to host SOMETHING before Christmas! It is just gorgeous. I had a huge collection of blue and white china and gave it all to my oldest daughter and it has been stored since then. I am hoping that some day she will develop a love for it- I had all the goblets and everything- xo Diana

  11. I love this table, as my fav is blue and White transferware plates, I love to collect them too, although I have red as well. Your place mats are so pretty, I'm gonna be looking for those too! The Fall colors in your blue teapot are so perfect paired with the blue. I just became your newest blog follower, it'll be great if we follow each other, as I love what you do.

  17. Barbara , my friend: I have been lax in my visits for awhile and I am so addicted to Pinterest that I spend WAAAAy too much time there, BUT I did find a picture from this post to pin, then I had to come over. Your room looks amazing. I thought it would be hard to outdo the red, but I think you did it!! What a beautiful color combination and I am getting so tired of wallpaper, I'm stripping away at my dining room (behind the doors and in dark corners) and you will probably hear the yelling from CA to NJ when it gets into plain sight!! But I am determined!! Everything is perfect from your drapes, to plates on the wall and the DR set (is it new or was it just not standing out in the red room). Either way I can't tell you enough how beautiful it all is.You did good!..Happy Sunday..Judy
