a look at my Thanksgiving table

Happy Monday and Happy December! Whoa, this year has just flown by, hasn’t it? I promised to give you a peek of my Thanksgiving day tablescape, and even though everyone is now in Christmas mode, I still wanted to check in and share our family table with you. 

The table evolved to be a high-low collection of things that just came together at the last minute. Family Wedgwood china, my favorite amber glassware, fall heirloom pumpkins and new sculptural pewter flatware all came together for a totally unique look. 

I love the muted tones of this table. The creamy Wedgwood plates were wedding registry gifts given to my in-laws when they got married during the 1950’s. Set on contrasting dark wood chargers, they're really highlighted for their embossed beauty and delicate nature.  

The pumpkins flowing down the center of the table are all soft shades of orange, gray and white. To add a little glitz, brass candlesticks intermingle with the pumpkins and vintage woodland animals like deer, quail and a friendly little squirrel. 

I softened the look of the center of the table with ferny greenery from Trader Joe’s, which I also added to the simple flowers in mini trophies and urns. 

White mums and so lovely on their own, but to infuse a little fall flavor I added three pheasant feathers to each little floral arrangement. The ferny foliage just softens the whole look. 

This little trophy and squirrel are recent acquisitions from my thrift store and flea market visits over the last few months. 

The amber glassware just adds the perfect fall jewel tone to the table and the facets catch the candle light in the most beautiful way. 

I’m in love with these stunning new napkin rings. Created by Vagabond House, they’re white stoneware embellished with delicate pewter oak leaves and acorns, which to me are one of all-time favorite motifs.  

They truly are today's heirlooms for future generations! 

Paired with the Acorn Flatware, this was the perfect look for my Thanksgiving table. Everyone commented on the utensils' unique style and lovely craftsmanship. It's been so popular at Vagabond House, that it's currently sold out!

I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving! This will prove to be a busy week getting Christmas decor started around here. I haven't even thought about putting up my Christmas tree. How about you?

Quite often time is of the essence, and I have last minute projects or events to work on, so I turn to Amazon for one or two day delivery. You’d be surprised at how many amazing items they have to offer! And I'm constantly updating this page with my new favorites.
