Table Setting for Thanksgiving

I love Thanksgiving!  Blake and I typically don’t go home for Thanksgiving and usually host our friends and/or people that can’t get home to their families.  This is the first year that our gathering will be on the smaller side, just four of us.  We have two of our friends coming over (normally we have anywhere from eight to twelve people) and I’m looking forward to a more intimate dinner. I’m so excited because it afforded me to be a little more extravagant and creative on my table setting.  The last few evenings, I shined the silverware, ironed the napkins, washed the plates and got everything ready so that tomorrow won’t be so stressful.  I found these great plates on sale at Sur La Table.  They had a green acorn print on them and I thought it would be a little different than the traditional orange, yellow, and burgundy. I used mason jars (it took me five stores to find them) with mixed filler from the grocery store (they matched my plates perfectly) and made my own bouquets. For the tablecloth, I went to Joanne’s Fabrics and bought several yards of burlap and put it over a table cloth to give the table a more rustic feel.  I got this great idea for the mixed nuts from a regular blogger I read and I’m having a brain fart right now and can’t remember where I just read it…PLEASE! forgive me?  Post to my blog so I can credit you. I hope you all have a fabulous Thanksgiving with your friends and families. I’m thankful for all my new friends and bloggers I have met.  Your all so talented and inspiring!   See below what I cooked up for the table for tomorrow. I’ll post on Friday what we had for din din!   P1020803

Ann,
What a beautiful table! I love the greens and the plates are fantastic. I bought one of those plates to use for appetizer because I thought the colors and acorns were wonderful.
Sometimes a smaller, more intimate dinner is so rewarding. I know you will have a wonderful day with your friends and family.

Thank you for sharing such inspiration for living each post.
I'm thankful for family, friends and my first grand baby due to arrive any day.

Ah....Rebecca thanks so much for posting. I was having a memory lapse at the time and wanted to properly credit you since I loved the idea and was at Vons and saw the bag of nuts...and couldn't find a runner I liked so I completely thought of your blog post. Thanks so much for the blog post and the fabulous idea!!!
