A Thanksgiving Table

I was in Marshall's the other day and they had all their
fall decor 50% off.  They had these lovely fall dishes on the clearance
table and since I needed three November birthday gifts ~
guess what they're getting?

 I decided to set a pretty Thanksgiving
tablescape before wrapping them to give away.
Who will know the difference except you ~
and I know you won't tell.

I love the bowls with a turkey on one side, a pumpkin on the other,
and a lovely acorn and oak leaf inside.

The mugs display the same pattern lay out as the bowls.

The dinner plate is large with beautiful fall colors and a
gorgeous turkey as it's main theme. 

I added a round olive~green salad plate with
pie crust edging for a punch of color 
and change of shape.

I topped the place settings off with the beautiful matching
bowls, bright plaid napkins and leaf napkin rings.

I also found a lovely turkey to use as a centerpiece,
set in a nest of colorful fall leaves. 

In the background, on the hutch, you'll notice
a lovely water pitcher from the clearance table that 
I just couldn't resist.

After setting up the tablescape, I fell in love with the
water pitcher and realized I couldn't part with it.  So 
guess who gets this piece ~ and it's not even my birthday.

Well, it's time to stop playing with the dishes and
get them wrapped up for my Mother's birthday party tomorrow.

Oh, you have a good eye. I would have "gobbled" these pretty dishes up too! What a find. And you put them together so festively!

Barbara said...

What a pretty table! I sure do like those dishes! Your recipients will be so happy to get them.

Nice find and all at bargain prices, good for you!! I agree, keeping that pitcher is a good idea...I love majolica style pitchers myself. Thank you for commenting and following my blog. Looks like we have some styles in common. I am joining your followers also.

Beautiful table and dishes, but like you I would not be able to part with that beautiful pitcher. Hmmm. I may just take a run up to Marshall's this afternoon. ;-)

"Lucky People who are on your list"!!! I love every detail... My FAVORITE is the "water pitcher", OH YES, it is a beauty AND equal FAVORITE is the TURKEY centerpiece!!! I too would have to keep them both... Hmmmm, I wonder if our Marshals has them... I'm ON MY WAY!!!
Thank you for sharing, Hugs, Donna

I'm popping over from Welcome Wagon and also BNOTP. Great plates. I was at Marshall's the day they were making markdowns and picked up some turkey plates. I went back the next day to pick up a few other things and it was almost all gone.

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

What a great set of dishes. I love your tablescape. Come by sometime.

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

What an absolutely perfect table setting you have created just in time for the holidays. I just love all of the different textures. Have a very Happy Thanksgiving.

Debbie said...

I think I want to be on your Christmas gift giving list. You find and pick great stuff! I was at Marshalls just last week and didn't see this pattern. I love it. It's exactly like something I would like. I'm glad you paired it with that great green plate with the pie crust edge and the plaid napkin. It just begs for plaid because it's such a warm pattern.

(And I would have wanted to keep the pitcher too. Since my birthday IS coming up, I could do it quilt free.) Grinning. Great table.

Ilove the turkey tableware especially with the green combo. I'm making a trip to Marshall's asap..
Thanks for your comment on the heron weathervane. It was on top of a house sitting on the river. Sort of tucked back behind another but it caught my eye.
Happy Thanksgiving.

Everything looks beautiful and I love the pitcher! So pretty! Great gift ideas too. It's always nice when you can reward yourself with something lovely as well.

Lesa's Life said...

What great gifts! Glad you found a little something for yourself, too. I shop for gifts the same way. :)

Hi Dear, I saw you featured over at Cozy Little House, welcome to the blogging world, hugs tami

Mimi said...

Those are great dishes!

Marlis said...

Great dishes, I would keep the pitcher too. The table looks really lovely. You should give a picture of the dishes on a table with the set..

Sarah @ Modern Country Style said...

We don't have Thanksgiving in England and I'm getting more and more peeved. Everything looks so gorgeous here.

I really like the little house with the candle in.

So sweet!

The tablescape is lovely, and I adore the pitcher. Tomorrow is Saturday, and I'm going to hit our Marshall's and see if I can find one. I know that you had a wonderful birthday table...neat gifts! Thank you for sharing your charming design. Cherry Kay

A Perfect Setting said...

We are using the same plates this week! It's so fun to see how even though we use the same things, it can look different. Your tablescape is beautiful, glad you used them before giving them as a gift. I didn't get the whole set, just the smaller plate. Great style!
