Thanksgiving Tablescape 2012

Happy Monday! Thanksgiving is almost here and I just can't wait to feast on some delicious food. Thanksgiving is a time for fellowship, thankfulness and sharing...it is also a time to dress our tables and pull out our fancy silverware and dishes. 

Last week I shared with you my table inspiration and my menu plan...although we will be out of town I wanted to show you what I came up with for my tablescape. Its nothing over-the-top but its what I like to call simple elegance.

 
For the place-setting, I used dishes and silverware that I already owned. I used a gold charger, a white dinner plate, a crystal pie-plate, silverware and two sets of wine glasses. I placed a gray linen napkin between the plates and simply put a pear on top. My centerpiece is 3 candle holders with gold candlesticks.


I used twisted floral Khadi napkins. They are gray with a metallic floral pattern around the edging. I found them at World Market.
Here is a close up of my crystal plates...they were a graduation gift nine years ago. Oh how time fly's. I still think they are just as beautiful as the day I first received them.
The tablecloth is from Target. It's a 70"round tablecloth made by Threshold, it has a very pretty floral embroidery stitched throughout the cloth. Here is a close-up of the detail...
I had a lot of fun putting this table together. I tried my best to showcase its beauty...sometimes its hard to translate that on camera...if you are like me and not a photographer. :) Here I am sitting at the table...I am trying to get in front of the camera more. I am always behind the scenes.
I hope you picked up some inspiration for your own table setting for this Thanksgiving. I love to hear from the people who read my post, it lets me know I am not just talking to myself out here in blog land. Have you completed your table and have everything underway or are you not hosting this year? See ya soon!
