I’m Gathering Together with 19 other bloggers for the
All Things Home Thanksgiving Tablescape Showcase.
See the links are at the bottom for all Thanksgiving table inspiration you don’t want to miss!
In anticipation of Thanksgiving and with a thankful heart,
I’m at the table enjoying our weather in North Carolina,
which is usually mild enough for dining
alfresco or on the porch in November.
A proud tom turkey takes center stage for this holiday,
and decorates the plates, bordered with leaves
and a fruit and vegetable pattern.
Artichokes, apples, and some leafy kale, providing texture,
were harvested from the produce department
to create a Pumpkin Vase Centerpiece.
Flowers from Trader Joe’s are bountiful and affordable
with mums, daisies and sunflowers adding fall color
and leaves and clippings from shrubs
added for filler and texture.
A plaid throw in a soft palette of warm browns
is layered over a matelasse coverlet.
Napkins are also layered, a variegated stripe with
a metallic sheen, paired with a stylized
leaf print in browns and greens
for some additional color and pattern.
Bittersweet vine adds a little
color and contrast
to rustic woven chargers.
Our weather in North Carolina has been
mild and in the 70s until recently.
With an eye on the forecast to avoid rain and
lake wind advisories, I was a week too early photographing
this table, to capture any fall color or leaves which have
since turned from green to gold almost overnight.
An Autumn Blaze Maple is always the first to turn,
providing long-awaited and dazzling red color.
Indian Corn provides some texture
lined up next to bone handled flatware.
