Thanksgiving Tablescape, 2013

Happy Thanksgiving to all!
 
I created a Thanksgiving table although we are probably not using it cause it's just John and me here for Thanksgiving. All our friends went to Florida and of course all our kids live in Florida. We will all get together in a few weeks.
 
The setting is in the formal dining room, using a tablecloth I bought from Rhodes, Greece.




The layers of plates consist of a wooden plate charger, a ceramic one, Johnson Brothers' historic America "Frozen Up" dinner plate, Queen's Myott Thanksgiving dinner and salad plates.
 
 I bought this wooden bowl a few months ago from Marshall's. I like the weird shape of it.
 
 I used brass napkin rings for the 6 place settings and used wooden pumpkin ones for the heads because I only have 7 brass ones. The flatware is a brass set with mahogany handles "Siam" that my beloved cousin from the Philippines gave me years ago.
 




 



Amber "Iris" goblets and green wine glasses.









The 3 tiered candle holder is from Willow House.


 Mallard ducks S & P shakers, pewter pheasants S & P shakers and some old salt cellars.
 

Lastly, I want to show you the tea set I bought recently from Trier City in  Germany. I bought it from the Villeroy and Boch store and the pattern name is "Audun Ferme". I love the transferware with the pastoral scene. I would have bought more pieces but we were very limited in luggage space. I also bought the iron stand/warmer that the teapot is on but it was from Rothenberg.

 
Thank you so much for stopping by. Aside from the many blessings that I have to be thankful for particularly my family and friends, I am also thankful for all of you, my blogging friends. Thanks to the hostesses too for adding fun to blogging.
