My Thanksgiving Table

I'm joining the fun over at Susan's BNOP for some fun tablescaping. Visit her for more great tablescapes.
This is my Thanksgiving table. I'm not quite ready for Christmas yet. It's still time for Pilgrims and counting blessings at my house. :)




Here's my centerpiece. The flowers are from Michaels, which I have decided I like much better than Hobby Lobby. They were on sale. :)

Of course, I had to add Pilgrims to the mix. I found these at Big Lots and thought they matched my color scheme really well.



Placemats were a "steal" at J C Penney's. The are reversable, too.


I'm using the glasses I found at Dollar Tree several weeks back. I thought they would be appropriate for Thanksgiving since they say "Friends" and "Family".


I'm trying a close up like some of you do. I'm using my black metal chargers I found at an antique store.


The napkin under the fork is paper from Wal Mart (I think)

I decided to make a runner out of them since the tablecloth was so plain.


Twilight Time.


Turkey's Eye View :)
Thanks for visiting me today. I love company!

Very, VERY pretty table, D!! I love how your coordinated all the colors so beautifully.
I have a pitcher very similar to yours, waaaaay up high atop the kitchen cabinets. I never thought to get it down to use for a centerpiece but I sure will now. Yours looks lovely!

fondly,
Rett

It is all very pretty. I have the same glasses and like how sturdy they are. Where did you get those pretty little pumpkins? I like how they are a little darker that most of the ones I have seen.
