thanksgiving

My Thanksgiving table. Happy Thanksgiving
Mantle decor
Pumpkin place holders.
Love the napkins fork is covering cutwork
Buffet will be set up for drinks , corn dishes and veggies.
Pumpkin dish to hold pie. Pilgrim salt and pepper.
Side table for coffee and vintage cut glass

Leaf salt and pepper for more color.  Candles on cut glass pedestals Added dome over vase.



I wanted to add a little color with a center piece of gourds  in a vase.  See the little pumpkin's for place cards.
Long view of table set for five.  I wanted to use the best dishes and tableware I have to make it more elegant then usual. My pretty pale blue table cloth and matching napkins and cut glass .


I am using my nice china dishes with pink flowers.  the silverware by Rogers brothers and pressed glass glassware.

the  napkins match the table cloth.  the corner has cut work .  Ice cream to have with pumpkin pie.
This year we give a special thanks for our forefathers who made America great.  We also must pray that our government will make the right decisions to protect those rights.  We should pray that our world can live in harmony and have the same freedoms as our great nation has maintained for all these years.  Please bring our boys back  and let the country's form  their own governments to bring the people the kinda of life that we enjoy.Thanksgiving is a time when families gather together and  remember the reason for the holiday some coming from great distance and praying together eating great food and having a happy time.
