Create a quick, no-stress natural centerpiece for your Thanksgiving table in just 5 minutes!.
Thanksgiving is around the corner and I pulled out the turkey plates in anticipation!
I set the table on the porch with six assorted turkey plates,
I thought it would be fun to see them gathered together at the table!
Have a seat next to your favorite turkey!
Our weather in November is typically mild, in the 60s or even 70s on Thanksgiving day.
We’ve spent many years eating turkey on my mother-in-law’s screened porch.
This will be our first Thanksgiving without her and we will miss her.
I added four proud Tom turkey plates to my collection this year,
Royal Stafford with an acorn and oak leaf border,
found at T.J. Maxx a couple of weeks ago.
Oak leaves on our trees are still green with our warmer temperatures.
I cut some for an organic and natural leafy runner to join an assortment of mini pumpkins,
scattered nuts and votives, for an easy and casual centerpiece.
We serve our plates buffet style on Thanksgiving day with the food on the kitchen island
so we don’t have to leave room on the table for platters of food.
This natural pumpkin and oak leave runner takes 5 minutes to assemble after gathering your leaves!
You can arrange your elements down the center of your table a day or two in advance,
then remove the leaves and place them to water to keep them from wilting.
Dry off the stems and place them back on the table tucking them among the pumpkins a
nd votives before your Thanksgiving feast, or use artificial leaves if you prefer.
I love brown transferware and Spode Celebration Thanksgiving Turkey
is one of my favorite patterns. I have two dinner plates that I found strutting
their stuff at Tuesday Morning several years ago.
A Victorian English Pottery Thanksgiving Turkey plate in blue, can be seen at my table, HERE,
dressed with warm plaid layers.
Autumn Monarch by Johnson Brothers Turkey plates,

You can see them at an alfresco Thanksgiving table HERE,

Queen’s Myott by Churchill Thanksgiving Turkey has a peach floral and soft green leaf border.
You can see them at a Thanksgiving several years ago with a
pumpkin vase centerpiece and mini pumpkin vases at each place setting, HERE.
A plaid tablecloth provides a foundation at the table
with an ear of Indian corn at each place setting.
Royal Stafford Turkey plates have a touch of blue with fruit, flowers and wheat along the border of the plates.
You can see them at a Thanksgiving Table With a Touch of Blue, HERE.
Pfaltzgraff amber all purpose glasses add a soft golden glow to the table.
While I know most will be putting their Christmas decorations up on or before Thanksgiving,
fall is my favorite season and has been slow to arrive and I want to linge
r with the pumpkins before rushing into the Christmas season.
