Thanksgiving Tablescape 2012. Grain sack table runners, heirloom silver, mini pumpkin tureens, and monogrammed linen napkins.
Don’t faint from shock.
I’m sharing my second ever tablescape since On Sutton Place began. I really need to do this more often because it was incredibly fun.
What’s even better is that we will actually use this table setting for Thanksgiving day. It will be just the four of us this year.
After 31 years of going here and there, we are staying home. Honestly, I’m not the least bit sad. I am truly looking forward to a relaxing day with my family.
Thanksgiving Tablescape 2012
What do you think of my shiny and bright ice bucket/urn? I’ll be back in a day or two to share how I did it. Let me just say…Andie you are the best!
While I was cleaning the urns, I cleaned some heirloom pieces I received when we emptied my father-in-law’s home. Along with the urns, this is one of my favorites.
I stayed true to my philosophy of mixing things up when I was setting things out. I combined antique grain sacks with shiny, vintage silver.
Inexpensive pumpkin soup tureens paired perfectly with English Ironstone.
Boxwood from my yard in flea market pitchers.
Heirloom etched glasses look lovely beside our crystal wine glasses received when we were married.
My navy flatware was a Christmas gift last year from my daughter.
Monogrammed linens are the finishing touch.
This Thanksgiving will be different from years past but I hope to start new traditions. I’ll have time to sit with my family and enjoy just being with them. Talking and laughing. Hanging out with the dog. Maybe taking an after-dinner walk. Whatever we come up with will be fine with me. We’ll be together and I’m sure you’ll agree…that’s what counts the most.
