Kitchen Dining Dressed for Thanksgiving

I tweaked my plate rack area and the etagere for Thanksgiving

I left the same plates on the plate rack and as you can see I layered another woven placemat onto the others.   I set up my pilgrim and crazy turkey votive holder from Pier 1 last year.  The lantern is part of a pair but one was plenty and the orange pumpkin S & P  shakers just seemed like a nice addition.  The white turkey S & P shakers came from Pier 1 one or two years ago. 

The sun was dancing along the vignette and the reflections from outside and inside are moving along the wall- it was so pretty.  I should have taken a video.

 I found the pilgrim on close out at a store in Mackinaw City at the end of 2014.  It's a Jim Shore piece but I've never found any more like it again.  

 I found the woven placemat at Pier 1 in a clearance area super cheap.

 I've used this pitcher a few times.  Love the faux wooden handle design on it.

 I decided to layer my other magnolia wreath under the wood pedestal piece and then top it with the turkey.

 I used some placemats to line the shelves and once again I have brought out my copper pumpkin.

 I've been keeping this area the same with the cutting board which could be used for cheese.  The copper piece is for a wine as well as the tall marble wine cooler.  I even found a copper wine bottle opener.

Kept my Pumpkin Hill Farm wheel barrow out and placed on the etagere.  

 I decided to use my antler set from last year in the center of the table and found these cute Pilgrim 
S & P shakers (cause I need more).

So that's a wrap for the kitchen dining area for Thanksgiving!


  1. Hi Liz,

    Those pumpkin plates are my favorite within the Land of Blog!

    The touches of copper are stunning on your etagere!
    The plaid place mats and napkins are "perfect" accents on the shelves!
