Dining for Thanksgiving (T)

 Mr. Tom Turkey presides over this table waiting to be replaced with a turkey platter full of the real thing!

I put a light under the brown glass for added illumination.

I love how the antlers add rustic elegance.

I chosethe green and brown placemats to add some additional color and break up the predominant rusty orange tones.  They worked out well since the the dishes have all the same colors.  The green stemware came from Pier 1 a few years ago- they seem to come in handy during the holiday period.

I had the napkins and they offer just the right tone found in the dinner plates and the green napkin rings are from Bed Bath and Beyond a good while back. 

There will only be 4 of us plus our grandson so I kept the table settings to a minimum.

I can dissect this quickly if we chose to.  The leaves and pumpkins at the base of the brown candle holders are actually small wreaths so it's easy to disassemble and reassemble.

Thank you for visiting and I wish everyone a blessed Thanksgiving holiday.

We will be very thankful that our son, daughter in-law and grandson will join us this year.  We don't often get company for this holiday!  

Gobble gobble!!
