If you have been around long enough, or if you have taken the time to go back and visit past posts, you will remember this post Fall hutch challenge. The classic white was the resounding winner. Most of you seemed to like the simple elegance.
In keeping with the theme I decided to use the same color palette for a Thanksgiving table.
To disclose fully, we will not be dining at this table. We will be spending the day with Mr. B's family, about an hour away. No matter, it's Thanksgiving and I wanted to set a pretty table.
I started with burlap fabric place mats that were gift from, my personal enabler, Mr. B. The wooden chargers are in just about every tablescaper's arsenal and are from WalMart.
I then added dinner plates purchased from the Dollar tree and then leaf plates I bought several years ago from Ross, on clearance. I have two in each shape so I alternated them around the table.
The flatware is my Rogers silverplate from Ebay.
The goblets are also from the Dollar Tree. I used rust and green colored napkins that I have had forever.I folded them to look like a leaf. The white napkin rings are from our Gibson everyday set.
For the centerpiece I used a mirror I had found at a thrift store this past summer. Originally it was the hot mess that I seem to attract and yet, must have. A couple of coats of white spray paint later and it was presentable. It normally resides on the dresser in one of the guest bedrooms. I gathered some of the white and off white ceramic pumpkins from other areas and placed them on the mirror with several small glass tea light candle holders from Ikea. I added my favorite crystal candlesticks that were a gift many years ago, from my oldest son. The white leaf salt and pepper are Better Homes and Gardens from WalMart.
I have so much to be thankful this year. Mr. B & I are both healthy and happy as are my sons.
I hope you have a joyful day spent with loved ones.
And always remember and never forget, there is always room for pie ;)
