Thanksgiving Table Recap and Tutorial

Where has the time gone? 

I keep asking myself this every day. 

Here we are again…

Thanksgiving has come and gone

and Christmas will be here before we know it. 

It seems like yesterday when I was posting Christmas Cheer from Georgia.

Christmas Tree

and now it’s going to be in Arizona.


I am finally to a point where I can decorate in the new house.

We still are not completely unpacked, but hey,

holidays with friends and family gatherings are much more important.

This year Joe’s brother and his wife were here for Thanksgiving.

We wanted to make it special as we had not seen them for a couple of years.

I set the table early, because I knew planning the menu and cooking would keep me busy

and I wanted a nice tablescape for the big dinner.

Do you want to see what I did?

Here you go…

The table was full of ruffles to give a relaxed and romantic feel.

Layered with candelabras, mercury glass, pumpkins, pine cones, and greenery.

The mercury glass and water glasses are Home Goods finds,

the pine cone was found at Lake Tahoe,

the pumpkins and glass square candle jars are Dollar Store finds,

the pedestal, candelabra, and pear are garage sale and Goodwill,

and the dinnerware is from Ballard Designs.

I grabbed what I had on hand and made the best of it.

The ruffled tablecloth is two bed-skirts layered one on top of the other and topping it off is a linen tablecloth.

I’ve had these bed-skirts for years, but you can find similar ones here.

The Dollar Store Pumpkin and Glass Candle Holders were given a little gold “bling” to add to the fall color scheme.
