Happy Thanksgiving!!

Happy Thanksgiving everybody!  
I'm creating this table up but I won't be able
to use it until I'm back from visiting family
for Thanksgiving.
I set the table with my new 
Ralph Lauren tablecloth (T.J. Maxx)
I loved the rich colors it offered.
I made an arrangement in the center
using two turkey statues perched
on wooden pedestals.  
A wicker cornucopia that I had from a few years back.
I fluffed it up with a few more pieces.
 Front and back views
I can lift these pieces off easily to set food on
the table.  
I found the placemats at Bed Bath and Beyond
and the chargers are from J.C.Penney
Chris Madden's Harvest Group
They look like carved wood but
I believe they are like a melamine material.
These rust colored dishes are from
Dillard's and they are made by
Noble Excellence and are called
Scroll, Terracotta
These leaves are from the same
Chris Madden, Harvest group
 The acorn is by Living Quarters from 
the Harvest collection at Younkers
I brought out these little candle votives
and set these cute little pumpkin
candles on top. I clustered them
with the glassware.
The amber glassware are recent
acquisitions from T.J. Maxx
I always love to see it with the candles lit!
 I love the ambiance that candlelight
creates. These are my new Casa
Cristina collection pieces.
So this will be my Thanksgiving table
(a few days after Thanksgiving)
We're having a couple of friends
over for an evening meal!

I hope your Thanksgiving will be full of great eating and
hopefully some cherished memories
with lots of love!
Happy Thanksgiving
On a special note I want to call out this posting by Yvonne @ Stonegable, please check it out and read her commentary about the holidays.  I'm with her on this one all the way and hope that we all take a minute to let these holidays breathe a bit more and enjoy them. We're not in a race- what's the rush?
