Setting the Mood

I think we all like to "set the mood" for the holidays.
This little corner table is a good starting point for me.
So I started to set the mood for Thanksgiving with my corner entry table.
I used items I already had on the table but arranged it a differently and added a couple of things.

I added this runner which I found at T.J. Maxx several years ago. The coppery tone seemed like a perfect addition. 

I nestled in this glass pumpkin into this arrangement and added the little "blessed" card that came with the pumpkin I got from the Etsy shop of Celstina Marie who blogs at Southern DayDreams that I posted about "here"

I thought it would add some interest in the evenings and offer a new look for the arrangement that I made up the end of September as seen "here" 
I love that this pumpkin has a timer and comes on each evening on it's own!

 I found this turkey at Michael's a few weeks ago and decided to give it  a try here.  He fits in well with his amber colored glass tail and it came with a candle holder!

The mood is set!

  1. Liz,
    I adore all the copper and umber hues of this vignette setting a grateful mood for Thanksgiving!
    The lighted glass pumpkin is stunning!!!
    Loving the tall floral arrangement near the mirror!!!
    Dear friend, you've inspired me to get in the mood, too!!!

  2. Hi Liz, your display for the season and November are inviting and welcoming. I love your table vignette and the lighted glass pumpkin is beautiful. Love your runner used in that direction too. I like how you used the blessed tag in another way.
    You have inspired the mood for Thanksgiving. I love letting November and Thanksgiving get it's honor and start decorating right after.
    Your home is always inspiring and well decorated.
    Have a great week.

  7. Oh, yes...the mood is definitely set! What I really like about it is that it speaks to fall in general without any hint of Halloween or anything like that haunting it. (pun intended!)
