My Thanksgiving Table

This year I decided to set our table using my white and gold dishes along with natural fall colors.


I've had the dishes for years, they were a gift from my mom. She also gave me the gold flatware.


I bought the planter from Michaels about 15 years ago. I haven't used it for years but I thought it would go nicely with the dishes and the natural fall colors.


I wrapped brown satin ribbon around  pillar candles and dollar store holy candles and tied  twine around that and added a leaf to the fronts.


I cut some pretty fall leaves from the trees in my yard. I didn't want to use the fallen ones just in case my or the neighbors dogs had used them for business if you know what I mean LOL.


I used pine cones for place holders  and just cut card stock into strips glittered the edges and numbered them one to four.



I used textured wall paper to make the table runners.


I bought the gold rimmed water goblets from Penney's years ago, along with matching wine glasses. The wine glasses somehow decreased from 8 to 2. When did that happen? 


All of my fruit is good ole fakes and so is the flower arrangement.



I hope everyone has a joyful Thanksgiving. Thanks for stopping by. I'll be joining these linkups this week,

  1. This is so pretty, I LOVE your china! I am seeing more and more gold and I like the change from silver. The centerpiece is beautiful...I never would have guessed faux! I am totally stealing the Dollar Tree candle idea...I am weird, I hate to light my candles because they are so expensive! These I won't mind.

    Cutting the leaves off the trees! I love it!! I need a giraffe!

  2. Very pretty, Karen! Exactly the color scheme I would go with, too, if I were hosting Thanksgiving. I am drawn more to the neutrals as the years go by.
