A few favorites

I can hardly believe that it is already the day before Thanksgiving!
The month of November has really flown by it seems. 
In getting ready for Thanksgiving
 a lot of cooking and cleaning is on the agenda and if you are like me
 you are also thinking about the table setting.

 I thought that I would grab a few favorite table setting elements 
that you can put together quickly
 as in at the last minute the day before Thanksgiving to share today.

Chunky wood chargers.
 I love different types of chargers- like chunky slices of wood. 

simple, inexpensive and so charming

A favorite for sure is mixing rustic and elegance- like this
Layered with a burlap tablecloth, elegant platinum edged china and dainty stemware- love.

A simple centerpiece

A simple centerpiece is easy and perfect and doesn't have to be expensive- 
especially for Thanksgiving.
Head outdoors to look for inspiration and clip a few branches from your yard
and place them in the center of the table by themselves

or mix them with roses or your choice of flowers from the market
 in this outdoor setting

Group together some of those leftover pumpkins with pinecones

or even just a few jars filled with blooms is perfect for the center or for place setting bouquets.

No matter what you decide to do with your table setting to make it special
it will be perfect for spending time with family and friends while giving thanks 
for all the blessings we have in our lives.

Wishing you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving!

*Feathered Nest Friday will be up this evening for anyone
 who would like to join in.*

  1. A visual feast to inspire the Thanksgiving table. Wishes all of you in the USA a joyous Thanksgiving with family and friends.

  2. Simply elegant. It looks effortless, which is the point, but those of us who strive for such beauty in our homes know that it takes work and lots of it. But of course, we enjoy the result, which is why we put forth all that effort.
