I wanted my Thanksgiving table to look similar to this inspiration.
Plates from Spode
Wine glasses are Star Blossom from Gorham and Water Glasses as Mikasa.
The silver is my Great Aunt's, I adore old silver... And I love polishing silver.. if anyone wants their silver polished, bring it over.
Love the butternut squash and the many candles.
I found a bag of these pilgrims at a yard sale... how cute!!!
The silver mint julep cup waiting for Thanksgiving day and fall flowers.
My version of Pottery Barn candles. I found a pair of these wonderful glass urns at Marshall's for $7.99 a piece. They have a big impact for a small price.
My Turkey Soup Tureen and Walmart bowls waiting for the Butternut Squash soup!!
I have another table set up, exactly the same but the table is round. I have plenty of room for as many guests as my family wants to bring. My philosophy is to have enough food and room at the table for anyone who may show up unexpectedly. Hospitality is about the ability to adapt and make an unexpected guest feel like you had always planned for them to come to your home.
I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner!!!
