Thanksgiving is two weeks away and in anticipation, I pulled out the my favorite Tom Turkeys!
With the countdown to turkey day underway, I’m at the table as part of a Thanksgiving Tablescape Blog Hop this week! You can find table inspiration from 20 bloggers for your Thanksgiving feast at the bottom of this post.
I pulled out an assortment of turkey plates for this table. Have a seat next to your favorite ‘Tom’!
I don’t have a complete set of any turkey pattern, I like to pick up one or two dinner plates here or there when I run across them. Autumn Monarch by Johnson Brothers Turkey plates, are rimmed with a decorative fruit and vegetable border and served up on wood chargers.
You can see them at an alfresco Thanksgiving table, here.
I love brown transferware and Spode Celebration Thanksgiving Turkey is a favorite gobbler! I added two dinner plates to add to my “rafter” of turkeys when I found them strutting their stuff at Tuesday Morning several years ago.
A Victorian English Pottery Thanksgiving Turkey has a blue border and can be seen at the table, here, giving thanks with warm plaid layers and pumpkins.
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.
The Victorian English Pottery Turkey by Edward Challinor has pretty seasonal fall border of acorn and oak leaves.
You can see them layered at the table for patriotic Thanksgiving, here.
And last but not least, Queen’s by Churchill ‘Majestic Beauty’ turkey dinner plates were found for $4.99 each, about the same price as a Pumpkin Spice Latte.
And a price that may have trading your Starbucks addiction for a dish addiction instead. ;)
When I set this table on the porch to photograph this table last week, it was a comfortable 70 degrees. The mercury took a nose dive this past weekend with our first freeze and highs in the 40s, but our November weather is typically mild in North Carolina. We’ve spent many Thanksgivings eating turkey on my mother-in-law’s screened porch enjoying the warm sunshine with temps ranging from the 60s to 70s.
A proud Tom turkey provides a centerpiece for the table.
He’s leading a parade of maple leaves, Indian corn, mini pumpkins, bittersweet vine and nuts, down the center of the table for a casual and natural table runner. Mercury glass votives add a little sparkle and soft glow.
Our Thanksgiving feast is served buffet style on the kitchen island so we don’t have to leave room on the table for platters of food.
Napkins are folded to mimic a turkey fantail and placed in a burnished copper napkin ring. You can find the easy tutorial and how to create your turkey fantail napkins, here.
