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!
