200th Post Celebration With Her Majesty, The Queen!

Welcome to my 200th Post!!! I can't believe I reached my 200th post before my 1st blog year anniversary. I am just having too much fun and thanks to all of you, your comments and your blogs that I love to read. To celebrate, I am having a giveaway. I am still gathering the items so I have not taken a picture yet but to name a few, I have the pink pedestal egg cup set from London, a set of matrushka dolls from Russia, a glass fish from the Caribbean, a bird salt and pepper shaker from TJ Maxx, a pen from Russia and I am not sure what else. Just leave me a message on this post and you get one entry. If you are a follower, you get another entry. Just be sure you let me know in your comment that you are a follower. Good luck!
We have been invited to a friend's house for Thanksgiving dinner so we are not dining at home. But to show thanks to successfull blogging, I created a Thanksgiving tablescape. I am joining Susan of http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ for Tablescape Thursday. Go over at Susan's if you want to see lots of wonderful tablescapes. She has so many creative and talented participants.
It is easiest for me to set this game table in the family room.
I used my Italian gold glass plate chargers from Horchow.com, white dinner plates from Home Goods in California, turkey "Queens" pattern luncheon plates I bought from Marshalls in Chicago. I won the turkey soup tureen on Ebay for only $5.99 and it is brand new. It even has a matching ladle.

Here's the table in the afternoon.


I added a pilgrim lady and a little girl as part of the centerpiece, 2 different pairs of turkey candlestick holders and a vase with faux fall flowers in it.
I also added this turkey tea light candle holder. The bubble amber goblets are from Amazon and the Chris Madden amber champagne flutes are from Ross.
To conceal the turkey butt a little bit, I placed a Limoges Pickard vase that we won in an antique auction a while back and added orange faux flowers in it.
Isn't she looking quite majestic?
Don't you just love his pilgrim shoes?
Again, I used my brass "Siam" flatware with figural and mahogany handles.
We won the amber salt cellars from an antique auction. I did not even realize the handle has a figure of a cherub until I loaded the picture here.
We won the silver salt cellar silver spoons from an estate auction.
Susan, thank you so much for hosting yet another fun tablescaping event and thank you all for helping me celebrate my 200th post. Don't forget to leave a comment and try your luck for the giveaway. I am not done shopping yet, around the house and in stores.
