Thanksgiving Table

I have the honor of hosting Thanksgiving Dinner for my family again this year so this weekend I played around with my table settings until I came up with something I liked.

Using only items I already had, this is the look I will try to recreate come Turkey day.

Starting with a pretty lace table cloth, I layered on a handful of silver candlesticks. . . 

Added some of my favorite silver serving dishes . . . .

Last year my six year old nephew requested a cornucopia so I decided we should use it again.  

We actually have two; one for the adult table which I filled with leaves and tiny pumpkins and one for the kids table that we fill with kids snacks that they can munch on throughout the day.  

My nephew gets a kick out of it.

This cute basket will hold the rolls and makes me smile as it reminds we of a similar one we used for special meals while I was a kid.

Our everyday flatware and dinner plates look a little more fancy along side everything else on the table.

Crisp white napkins and a homemade napkin ring crafted from old spoons finish off the look.

I think I'm ready.
With this task complete I can now focus on the yummy stuff . . . like baking pie!

How about you?

Will you be hosting this year?

I hope you enjoy your time with friends and family.
