Thanksgiving Table, 2017

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

I hope you all enjoy spending time with family and friends, while giving thanks for all the blessings bestowed upon all. I am happy to join Katherine's Give Thanks Tablescape Blog Tour. Hop on over there at to visit the other participants.
For this year, I thought I'd use the turkey salad plates that I bought a few years ago from Pottery Barn, along with Johnson Bros. "Thanksgiving" transferware dinner plates, which are part of their Historic America series. I bought them from an estate sale in Brookhaven, MS when we still lived in Natchez.

You can see my other Historic America series in "Massachusettes" pattern, that I used for my second Fall tablescape last month here.

 The plate chargers are actually melamine. I usually prefer using ceramic, wood or glass chargers, which I do have a lot of, but I could not resist buying these from Zulily because they were so inexpensive and they actually look elegant. I think they were only around $5.99 for a set of 4 and I bought 2 sets.

 I love my wooden pilgrims.

Turkey S & P shakers. You will also see the wooden pumpkin napkin rings here from Williams Sonoma on clearance years ago.

 Spode Woodland flatware set
 Spode Woodland salt and pepper shakers.

 I bought the tablecloth from Rhoades, Greece many years ago while traveling with my daughter Tina and SIL Scott and granddaughter AJ. Tina was 5 months pregnant with her first child then, which means this is more than 10 years old.

Lots of turkey on this tablescape, including the pair of candlestick holders and a turkey tea light holder.

 Bavarian Tirschenreuth tea set

Hello Christine! Nice to meet you through the Thanksgiving Tablescape tour! I absolutely love those Johnson Brothers dishes. I will definitely be looking for some to add to my collection. Beautiful post! Have a great Thanksgiving!

you set a lovely table. The pilgrim figurines are such a sweet touch too. Thank you so much for being part of my tour. Big Hugs and Happy Thanksgiving ( Pinned!)

Lovely, lovely! Life is playing second fiddle to my blog, wishing you the happiest Thanksgiving ever, Christine.

Hi Christine, Your table looks terrific! Those Johnson Brothers dishes are wonderful; my mother-in-law has the same pattern in red. Hers are lovely, but I think I may prefer the brown/multi for this time of year. I think brown transferware is so elegant.

I enjoyed your post, Christine, and hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving with your loved ones.

Very beautiful my friend. Those historical plates are my fav, but the white inexpensive turkey plates make such a statement here.
Happy Thanksgiving for you, John and your lovely family.

I like to use glass, wood or metal chargers, too, but when they look as good as these acrylics, you just can’t go wrong! Those are super pretty! You really decked it out for a beautiful celebration!
