After yesterday’s Good News and Bad News, today feels a little awkward. The word celebration doesn’t sound just right. I’m not celebrating, but I’m thankful for new beginnings with a lighter, more restful schedule. Thank you all for your kind words of encouragement yesterday!
Thanksgiving is looming, so we must move onward!
What’s the plan for your Thanksgiving table?
Will you have pumpkins?
I lined these Cinderella pumpkins in a row over crumpled burlap for symmetry and flanked them with wheat shocks.
To give more interest to the short stems on the pumpkins, I hot glued faux leaves to each.
When considering napkins, I took note of the tones in the leaves I used for the Autumn Leaves Placemats project.
I used the square acorn plates over our everyday china. The wood-look edges are a gentle repeat of the rattan chargers.
I topped the plate stacks with orange dollar plates from clearance at HobLob.
There were four remaining on the shelf, two each of two different patterns.
I had plastic orange patterned plates that mixed well enough at each end place setting.
These lanterns were fairly inexpensive at Tuesday Morning in early fall.
The battery powered flameless candles sure are handy!
To celebrate our turkey day, Tom holds a napkin securely over each plate stack.
A little something extra comes from Wal-Mart. These copper flatware pieces are sold in single bins, making for easy selection.
Sage green Dollar Tree stems have given us lots of mileage!
That about wraps up this final tablescape!
That word final is off-putting, isn’t it? It’s so, well, final! I’m not very good at good-byes, but I must say good-bye to tablescapes, fun DIY projects, gardening, crafting, and all things besides the main new focus of sewing home decor from here on out.
Of course, you all are invited to join me at Embrace This Season, where we women of faith embrace our seasons of life…from fifty and beyond. We have so much more yet to live and do and be!
May the Lord bring you loads of blessings this Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons (hugs all around, too!)~
I’m sharing this table at Tablescape Thursday.
