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.
