Thanksgiving, 2012 Table

Just a quick post here to share our Thanksgiving dinner table. I am in Florida right now with my daughter, taking care of some exciting business, but I set the table before I left. I was not feeling too well when I left home so this table was put together very quickly in between resting and napping.
I am inviting some friends over to join us since I cannot have any family member come over. They all live in FL and they all have other plans already. This year, I made our table very traditional and will be serving very traditional Thanksgiving food also.
I brought my pair of candelabra from the French cabinet to use on the table. I think it adds to the formality look.

 I used my Myott Queens turkey luncheon and salad plates. I told you it will be very traditional but I added a Princess House Pavillion dinner plate. I used oval wood plate chargers and my natural fiber oval placemats.
 I combined Iris bubble amber goblets and green wine glasses, both of which I have had for years.

Wm Rogers silver plated flatware in "Exquisite" pattern.
 For napkin rings, I used Southern Living at Home napkin rings which also doubles as name place holders.
 I thought I would put "Her Majesty, the Turkey" on a pedestal in the center and be the main centerpiece.
 I took 2 vases that were on our kitchen mantel and placed them on either side of the turkey platter. My friend, Noemie gave me the vases and I bought cheap fall colored flowers from the Dollar Store and made the arrangements.
 I will use the orange vintage hobnail server for the gravy. I also added 2 simple candle holders with turkey on them.

 Princess House "Pavillion" turkey platter matches the dinner plates. It is  placed on top of a marble top Lazy Susan.

 Turkey S& P shakers, Spode duck S& P shakers and I just added a twin dip container, maybe to use for cranberries. Not sure yet.
 I think this must be my favorite tablecloth. I bought it from Roades, Greece. I just love the color, the material and the satin edging with embroideries.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you all enjoy the holiday. Happy Thanksgiving to all! Christmas is coming very fast.
I am very happy to link with the following and very grateful to the hostesses.
