Main Table for Thanksgiving Dinner in Natchez, 2014

I got to spend Thanksgiving at home in Natchez. I had to set 2 tables because all guests would not fit in one. The adults sat here and I had a table in front of the fireplace in the kitchen for the kids. I will share that table next week because I do not want to bore you with picture overload.
 We were 9 adults, actually 11 but 2 of them came late because they had to attend a family dinner so they just joined us for dessert. I placed 2 chairs on one end of the table to accommodate all since my table normally only holds 8.

 I chose to use Polish pottery instead of the usual traditional orange and green Thanksgiving plates. They are my "Go to" dishes when I do not have too much time to prepare because they are stored in the kitchen cabinets and are easily accessible.
 However, I added rust colored napkins to have the feel for Fall. I mixed and matched the Polish pottery plates and some of them have some rustic colored design in the center, but mostly blue, green and white.

 I have this big wooden bowl that I filled with squash and pumpkins for my centerpiece. I added a few antlers and straw twigs to make it look somewhat rustic.

 I used amber iris goblets and Polish pottery wine glasses.

Here is a close up of the plates showing woodsy designs, which I think are perfect for Fall.
 Polish pottery and Spode S & P shakers and pumpkin and asparagus napkin rings from Williams Sonoma.
 Artichoke and pinecones for place card holders, also from Williams Sonoma.
Thanks again for all your visits. I hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving celebration with your families and you are enjoying your preparations for Christmas now. I also am very thankful to all the hostesses of the following memes.
