HappyThanksgiving! Thanksgiving Tablescape!

Hi there!

First of all, I'd like to take this opportunity to wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Ours has been good.  My mother came into town with a good friend of our family's and my neice!  So with a total of 7 of us for dinner, I wanted to have a nice table set up for the special dinner.

I had a Fall/Thanksgiving Tablescape all set up, but as the date was approaching, I was realizing I wanted a little change from our traditional Thanksgiving Tablescapes I've done in the past.  So...I decided last minute to switch things up a bit!   And here is what I came up with.

 I've been wanting to do a burlap tablescape for a while, and I found some nice burlap runner fabric at Walmart the other day, so I decided to pick it up.  After seeing a few pretty burlap tablescapes on Pinterest, I decided to put my own little twist on one.  

The Centerpiece has  a silver candleabra from Michaels, with White pillar candles wrapped with the remaining burlap fabric from the table runner, some silver curling ribbon and a little silver and white sparkle medalion (one fell off, as you can see...haha!)  on either side of those are my white Ikea pillar candle holders, and on the sides of those are these cute little lidded pumpkin bowls I found at Goodwill.   Such a great find!  Also, there were little glass tealight holders throughout the center of the table to give it some glow.

 Each place setting had my Walmart Silver Charger plates, my white dinner plates and bowls from the Dollar Tree, my little Pier 1 flower bowls (which I ended up using as individual butter dishes for each guest.)   I also used the white napkins with these cute silver napkin rings (6 for $1 at the Dollar Tree!) and my "fancy silverware" from Goodwill (another great find!)

It was a blessing to have family here for Thanksgiving and to serve them at this table!   We all had a lot to be thankful for and we got to share some of the things we were thankful for at the table! It was a nice time!

Now, I'm going to lie down for a bit, because I stuffed myself so full of turkey and fixins, that I'm feeling the need to loosen my pants and kick back for a while!   haha!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Hi and welcome to another TABLESCAPE TUESDAY!

It's been a while!   I can't believe how busy things have been over the last few months...but I'm certainly not complaining.   It's been chocked full of good things, but still chocked full!  lol

Anyway, I thought I'd share with you my tablescape for Fall/Thanksgiving.

Fall is well underway, and the temperatures are changing.

The weather is getting a little (ok, a LOT) chillier!

The leaves on the trees have been turning the prettiest colors! 

I wanted to capture some of those lovely colors in my Fall tablescape.

I hope you enjoy, and I want to wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving and HAPPY FALL, Y'ALL!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week!
