Thanksgiving Table

November 4, 2012 by 40 Comments

Simple and casual entertaining makes everyone feel at home….I’ve read that somewhere and I’m good with that.

This is my “Thanksgiving Table”….  a warm and loving mixture of old and new, simple, rustic and some sparkle.

The center of the table is filled with fresh fruit, nuts and  ornamental cabbage plants.

My dishes are mixed patterns,  thank goodness my  dinner plates match, right!!  But, there is a story behind the mix and match dishes that I will share with you another time.

I can tell you that the small white plates with the gold rim are the same plates my mom served her Christmas Desserts on 50+ years ago. The wine goblets were gifted to us a couple of years ago, they too come from Germany.

Last but not least the candle sticks are from year’s past; one from Potterybarn the other from Pier One Imports.

Now, if I could just leave my table set like this for Thanksgiving Day, that would be great!  All I would have to do is prepare the meal. As you can tell, there is still room on the table for some yummy treats.

I love it when you stop by….please come again!

  5. I love your table setting, it’s very inspiring. I love the cabbage plants wrapped in burlap and how you used mostly natural items to decorate.

  6. That looks wonderful! You should leave it this way for Thanksgiving! I like the way you displayed the pumpkins, nuts and fruit- it reminds me of those big tables they show in the old movies about kinds and queens and their big banquet tables!
    Great job!

  7. HI Moni, I commented earlier. I was wondering if you would mind if I posted the picture of your table on my blog and I would link it back to your blog. I’m going to do a post on Thanksgiving tables this week. Thanks for your consideration. Dawn

    Oh Moni, it’s just beautiful! I’m with Liz, it reminds me of those big banquet tables, the way you have all the fresh fruit, etc. piled in the middle. It’s very inviting and anyone would be honored to have a place at that table. I really love that you are using the same dishes that your mom used 50+ years ago. How very, very special that is. I could go on, but suffice it to say that I just really like your table. I’m so glad you shared. 🙂
