Thanksgiving Tablescape For Cape Coral Home

Before I share my table, I want to say that I have so much to be thankful for but the very first on the list is my granddaughter Rea, who is home doing very well after her auto bone marrow (stem cell) transplant and I thank the Lord for her "Complete Response" after 5 whole cycles of chemo plus the last strongest one right before the stem cell transplant. She is now enjoying playing with her sisters. She still has more treatments coming but they are now more preventable procedures. Thank you to everyone who have been praying for her.
 
We will not be here for Thanksgiving but I set the table because my brother and his wife and some of her relatives are stopping by and staying here for a day or 2 before they proceed to Miami for a cruise and it just happens to be on Thanksgiving weekend.
 
I got to use the turkey plates I bought from Pottery Barn a few years ago when they went on clearance sale.
I have always admired these white wooden plate chargers whenever I saw them on others' tablescapes and I finally bought them when they went on sale at Pier 1. I have a hard time buying anything at full price.
Green stemmed glass goblets from the dollar store and the crystal wine glasses are from Homegoods.


Napkin rings from a consignment shop in Cape Coral. I brought the napkins from our Natchez home and the flatware set. I have to remind myself to bring more flatware sets from Natchez.






The table cloth was a gift when I bought something from an antique shop in NY. I just left it stashed away for years because it is a little short for our table in Natchez but it is perfect here.
Rooster and house S and P shakers. I think they are Fitz and Floyd.


I like the piercing of the tablecloth.


I took the next 2 pictures just before I left.
 

A little accident on the buffet table happened while I was taking pictures. The taper candles were closer to the lamp shades and when I looked, I saw a big hole on each shade. The fire was not touching them but the heat melted a part of each of them. I had to turn the shades around, at least until I have the time to shop and replace them. Yikes!
Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate all the hostesses of the parties I am attending.

Your table looks wonderful- love the turkey plates. I have some of those white chargers and they're one of my absolute favorites! You'll love using them over and over. Thanksgiving Day will be here before we know it!!
Take care, Liz

Thank goodness the candles didn't set fire to the lamp shades!
This is probably my favorite of all the tables you have done...gorgeous. I love everything about it, tablecloth, white chargers, turkey plates and green stemmed goblets.
Thanks for sharing, Christine.

Oh my Christine; you and all your dear family have so much to thank the Lord and that is little Rhea's fine recovery and that she is well and by this time next year it will be a painful memory when you all see her in perfect health.
Your table is so delicate and pristine white, I truly adore it! So elegant with the gorgeous tablecloth and white turkey dishes. I too have to get discounts even if what I want is not on sale and always get my way, lol... Now, I didn't get if you had Tksgiving already, or your gonna have it when your family get to Flo.?
Hugs,
FABBY

Christine,
Oh, dear one. . .that tablecloth is exquisite!!!
While I adore every element of this tablescape. . .chargers, turkey plates, stemware and flatware. . .the tablecloth is what keeps my focus!!!
So~o~o glad your lampshades are only damaged and not a fire within this lovely home. Do be careful in the future. . .and here's hoping you find replacement shades on $ale! (wink)
