Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!! I love this holiday. Probably because it involves food. And a lot of it. And yummy too!!!
Not only is it Thanksgiving, it is also Tablescape Thursday. Be sure to visit Susan over at Between Naps on the Porch to see all the fabulous tablescapes for this week. I'm sure there will be a lot of Thanksgiving tables.
So tonight I set my Thanksgiving table so I'd be ready for tomorrow. This is table #2. I did table #1 last week as you may recall.
I had to use my turkey plates!!! I started off this tablescape with a gold tablecloth that I just got last week at Walmart. It was on clearance for $5.00!!! I thought it was a bit too much for what I was going for, so I placed a white lace tablecloth over it. The lace tablecloth also came from Walmart on clearance for $5.00 earlier in the year. Did I mention that I love Walmart!!!
Here is my place setting.
The white chargers are by Pinzon and I got them for free from Amazon. Well I earned 4 of them for free. The other 4 cost me $25 bucks with free shipping. So I actually got 8 charger plates for $25.00. That is a deal! And they are fabulous. My silverware came from Marshall's on clearance last year. I don't know who they are by.
And here is one of my fabulous cranberry turkey plates. I used the dinner plate and a salad plate.
Here is the back of the plate. As you know, I have service for 24. I've picked up my set over the past few years at Marshall's, TJ Maxx & Home Goods. They were fairly inexpensive as well. I've seen them on ebay. They come in different colors as well. But I love the cranberry ones.
I used 2 different types of crystal goblets. They all came from various thrift stores over the years. I only have 4 in each set. And since I set this table for 6, I used 4 from one set & 2 for the other.
I purchased each of these one at a time at different times. They cost me about $1-2 a piece.
I just love my turkey napkin rings. I picked them up this summer at a thrift store while on vacation. I squealed with delight when I found them. Hubby thinks they are ugly. I got 6 of them for $4.00.
The glass acorns came from TJ Maxx earlier in the month. I got 24 for about $7.00.
The napkins are thrift store finds as well. I paid $2.00 for 8 of them. I love the crochet edging on them.
I put a mercury glass votive holder at each place setting. I just got a set of 12 a few weeks back from Target online. But you can buy them individually at Target for 99 cents each.
I placed 2 different sets of salt & pepper shakers from my collection. This set is my largest.
I love the tops of this set. As you can see, I never polish my tops. I love them all tarnished.
For my centerpiece I used my fabulous candelabra. This was originally silver. I bought it at a thrift store for $7.00. I painted it white, distressed it and then added the acrylic crystals and garland. I had 2 of these that I used on the bridal party table at our wedding reception. I sold one of them on ebay after the wedding. The candles came from Walmart.
The glass turkey bowls came from Joann Fabric a few years back.
I got them for less than $5.00 a piece. I'm thinking more like $3.00, but I could be wrong.
I thought the table needed more candlelight. So I added my glass hurricanes. But I thought they were too plain. I had to jazzy them up. So I placed each on a different large crystal candlestick. I didn't want this to be permanent, but I didn't want them falling off either. So I used some candle stick um on the rim of the candlestick & the hurricane vase stuck to it pretty good. It will be easy to remove once Thanksgiving is over.
I have about 10 of these hurricane vases. They are left over from our wedding. They originally came from Walmart & were about $3.00 a piece. I think Walmart still sells them. The crystal candlesticks they are sitting on came from the thrift store. I paid $2.00 each. I love the height they give them.
Then I thought it would be cool to add a smaller glass hurricane vase to the inside. I needed to raise it up some so I added some pinto beans. I really wanted to use coffee beans, but we don't drink coffee and we do eat beans. The smaller hurricane vases & the candle came from Dollar Tree just a couple of days ago.
And one final look at my tablescape.
I hope that each of you has a Happy Thanksgiving!!! May you be safe, may you feel loved and may you eat a lot of yummy food!!! And most important of all, may you not get heartburn.
God bless each & every one of you and thanks for being my blogging friends. You mean a lot to me even though we have never met.
