Thanksgiving Tablescapes

Wednesday, November 24, 2010

I have been cooking, cleaning, and decorating all morning.  I like the way my tables look, especially the children's table in the kitchen.

This is the children's table:



The little pumpkin painting was painted by Carol Marine.



This is Pocahoppy and Muffy Pilgrim.  Muffy and Hoppy have appeared at all kind of events since Shanley Belle was two years old.  They have outfits for all occasions.  As a matter of fact, I am envious of their wardrobe!  Tom Turkey was recently pardoned by President Obama.

This is the dining room table.  I want to apologize in advance for the poor quality of the pictures.  It has been terribly overcast today, and the dining room is on the north side of our home.



I have combined the antique, old, and new.



I bought these little leaf salad plates from Pottery Barn recently.  I have mixed silver we inherited from both sides of the family on the dining room table.

We will be busy with family and friends for the next several days.  Tonight, after I have completed all the prep work I can, we are going to see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Plans for Friday include decorating for Christmas and watching Alabama football (Roll, Tide, Roll!!!).  Saturday we will do a little shopping using some coupons I received via email. Sunday, we will go to church and then relax all afternoon!

Stop by next week to see the five little paintings I want to include in Red Dot's Holiday Show.

Until next time...

Thanksgiving blessings!

  1. I love the leaf-shaped pottery barn plates. I'm going to look for them myself. It was overcast here as well on Thanksgiving Day, but as long as you're with family it's a sunny day!
