The Thanksgiving Table

Good Morning!
I thought today would be a wonderful time to share how I plan to set the table for this years Thanksgiving Gathering.
My plan is to keep things nice and simple with plenty of room on the table for the main event - the yummy food!
I layered a simple drop cloth table runner over a white linen tablecloth and placed a single candelabra in the middle of the table.

One each side I place a silver gravy boat fill with white roses.

My everyday white china was dressed up with simple white napkins and a silver frame.

I've had a handful of these silver frames for a couple of years and have used them in many different ways around the house.  I think this is the best use for them yet.  I love the sparkle they add to the table.

Simple scrap booking supplies, a set of alphabet stamps and a single accent stamp was all that was needed to turn them into place cards.

Now that I have all the fun stuff done for the big day, I guess that means I have to get to the not-so-fun stuff like cleaning the house.  Sigh ... If only I had a maid.
Talk to you soon,
