It is hard to believe that Thanksgiving is a week from today. By the end of the day we will wonder once again how we were able to eat so much dinner and somehow have room left to squeeze in a piece of pie.
As happens often in my tablescapes, it started with a piece of fabric. Fall leaves and berries tossed on a soft white background. Perfect to go with pink transfer ware.
Then when I was wandering through the local antique shop I found this in a back room hanging on the wall a foot above my head. A pink Thanksgiving plate.
A Close up of the lower right corner.
So I stacked my plates, crawled up on the counter to retrieve the British Castle Soup tureen from the top of the cabinets, and started to play at the table.
Natural elements of fall were added with some small white pumpkins, gourds in yellows and greens,
and maple leaves off the tree in the front yard.
Some of which matched the color of the glass leaf bowls.
The salad plates are Hutschenreuther Maple Leaf (Scalloped). I found them a few years ago on eBay and fell in love. They could not be more perfect - maple leaves in pink (and green). Plus being from Canada they spoke to me.
Next are some antique plates I have had for ages that I have no information on. They are edged in gold. Does anyone recognize the pattern?
My Longaberger Vintage Vine plates are stacked on two chargers - white Ceriart from Home Goods were used last weeks tablescape Acorns & Lilacs and wooden chargers from Pier 1 that were last used on my Breast Cancer awareness Table of Hope.
Two brass pheasants from the ALAV Designers Showcase silent auction strut across the table. White mini chrysanthemums from the yard fill two transfer ware creamers. One is Spode the other Meakin.
This is a happy bird as he is not on the menu.
Stemware is Princess House Bordeaux and an antique with a red base.
May the harvest at your table be bountiful.
Stitch at you Soon,
