Last week I showed you the Thanksgiving table I
set with the dishes I was giving my Mother for her birthday.
But these are my Thanksgiving dishes that I used to set
the table for her birthday dinner.
It's a very simple table setting again due to the limited size of my table.
I started with a soft pinkish-coral tablecloth to bring out the
pink flowers in the salad plate. The fabric was a $.99 purchase at
a thrift shop that was faded on one side, but perfect on the other.
The dinner plate is Karidesign by Certified International.
The lovely turkey salad plate is appropriately called
"Thanksgiving" by Queen's and is a Myott Factory
archive illustration adapted from original copper engravings.
I used beige napkins and napkin rings I made to match
the plates using berries, leaves and acorns,
tied together with braided jute roping.
I made my centerpiece using a container purchased at Goodwill
and filled it with pale green leaves with a hint of pink in them, berries,
assorted greens and pheasant feathers.
The water glasses are a Dollar Tree purchase. The
silverware is a long ago wedding present and the only set I own,
so it shows up repeatedly at my tablescapes.
Although the table is simple from a distance ~ up close
there is texture to be found in each item, which
adds interest and richness to the table.
