Thanksgiving Accents

I started with the entryway chest.  I swapped out the large striped MC (MacKenzie Childs) pumpkin with my MC turkey I bought a few years ago.

Everything else is the same with the fall garland I draped around the tray that’s hidden below and the little MC checkered pumpkins.

I changed out the pumpkin that was here with another turkey I already had. 

I added a bunch of miniature pumpkins on top of the raffia.

I edited the mantel by removing most of the pumpkins and gourds that I had there and then added the two pheasants.  
I’m already dreaming about Christmas decorating on the mantel.  It seems like everything happens so quickly from this point on!

I got my pheasants at Pier 1 a while back.  I’ve tried to use them in different ways each year. 

I rearranged the pine cone garland that I already had there and adjusted the remaining pumpkins.  I like to pretend the design is mimicking a forest floor. 

I didn’t change the tall arrangement that I introduced in an earlier post this fall. 

This new time change has me screwed up a bit.  It was dark by 6 pm and I had to take pictures with the indoor lights on.  We’re taking off in the morning for my Aunt’s funeral.  I’ll get a chance to see my mom,  sisters and cousins I haven’t seen in a long time.  


  1. Everything looks so pretty. You have some awesome turkeys. Adding the MKC pumpkins is lovely. I might be adding a few to my cart. The pheasants look great how you displayed them. A pretty fall look for the upcoming Thanksgiving. Have a safe trip.

  2. Oh Liz that mantel is stunning. Really stunning! Love the turkey's too. Everything looks beautiful for Thanksgiving.

  3. Good Afternoon Liz!
    Oh I so agree with you everything does seem to move along so quickly now and a sense of urgency is in the air. We still haven't really even cooled off yet. We had one day where we thought we were going to get cool-to only return to 90. Love how you edited your mantle and the turkey is beautifully nestled among the mini pumpkins.
    Wishing you a lovely week,

  4. Such beautiful pieces on your table, Liz. Your turkeys are quite handsome and look lovely. I especially like how you arranged your mantel--stunning!
    I just changed out Halloween and now need to put Thanksgiving decor up before it's over. You are so right we are in fast forward now.
    Safe travels Liz. ♥

  5. Love your collection of turkeys and the mantel is so beautifully decorated with such warmth and pretty details. Sorry to hear about your aunt....it will be great to see your mom and sisters and those who you have not seen in a while. Safe travels.

  6. Your Thanksgiving accents are so pretty, Liz. I love what you said about trying to emulate a 'forest floor'. and I think you have definitely achieved that!

    So sorry to hear about your aunt. Safe travels, my friend.


  7. I'm sorry about your Aunt, Liz. I totally skipped right over Thanksgiving decorating this year. I have jumped right into Christmas. You always put together such beautiful vignettes. I LOVE the mantle and the pheasants!


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