Centerpiece for Thanksgiving Dining (T)

Last week when I did a little decorating for Thanksgiving I created a centerpiece arrangement and set out some dishes.

The Tom Turkey is a new piece.  It came complete with the little pumpkins and greens at the base.  The top edge seems to be covered in foil that has some brown stain on it to mellow it’s color.

I found a multi-colored table runner made of leaves at Bed Bath and Beyond (comes in two lengths- good value) and set it on the Williams Sonoma tablecloth I bought a few years ago.  I re-used the gold antlers that have been on the table more than once along with a candle ring at the base of a glass candle holder that I turned upside down for a fuller look.  The pumpkins have been with me a couple of years.

The chargers came from Pier 1 a while back and some of you have already seen the dinner plate that is adorned with wheat.  The Heritage Turkey plates are from from Pottery Barn last year.  I had to shoot on an angle because of the lights.  I don’t like taking pictures with inside lighting but that’s how it worked out the day I took the pics.
I didn’t do a full tablescape- just wanted to enjoy looking at the turkey plates with the centerpiece.  I’ll finish it up and take pictures next week!  

We are getting our first winter storm today.  It’s always pretty to see but the weatherman also thinks this snow will stick around a while since the temps are going to stay pretty cold.  I hope this is just a brief start towards winter because I’m not ready!


  1. I can’t wait to see the finished product! The foundation is terrific! Your new turkey takes center stage with pride! Stay safe in that winter storm today. So sorry you’re getting slammed so early.☹️❄️❄️❄️

  2. Already looking so great. I cannot wait to see your final setting. Love Mr. Turkey having his place at the table too. Happy Thursday Liz. Have a great day.

  3. Very nice, Liz. Your turkey looks right at home on your table. I almost bought that leaf runner for our Florida room table the other day.
    We aren't getting a winter storm, but very low temperatures on Friday night. All of the zonal geraniums are now downstairs under grow lux bulbs for winter. Stay warm, my friend.♥

  4. What you have here is beautiful Liz and I look forward to seeing more. Here in Michigan it just started snowing, nothing major but we're not ready either.

  5. Tom Turkey is looking terrific with your plates!!! I will keep a watch for the rest of the table. We are getting our snow later tonight and early in the morning - or so the weatherman says! It will be interesting to see what we get. Have a nice weekend despite the snow!

  6. Pretty look with the turkey and leaf runner. looking forward the the full reveal. Have a great weekend.

  7. Your tablescape is very pretty with the fall decor! The centerpiece is a winner with the gorgeous turkey and pumpkins. How delightful to view your turkey plates which accent your thanksgiving table.
    Have a grand weekend!


  8. So pretty, Liz! How did I miss those turkey plates last year, although this is not to say that I don't have more sets than I care to admit. Your table looks very inviting. It's time I get started on mine. Thanks for the inspiration. I have a large turkey somewhere...now to find him!


Thank you for your comments! I don’t always get a chance to reply but I do read them!
