Our Thanksgiving Table










Welcome to my very first Thanksgiving table! 

All of you should be proud... I've started thawing the turkey, I've done all of the grocery shopping and I've set my table for Thanksgiving! Just call me Suzy Homemaker. Come on, turkey day! I decided to keep the table simple and sweet- many people have told me that even though they're beautiful, one big mistake is to junk up your table with decor, which doesn't leave room for food and for your guests to eat comfortably. So simple and sweet I left it.

I used my everyday dishes (Portmeiron's Sophie Conrad in white and celadon from Macy's) and added the beautiful printed napkins (World Market) and a few natural elements to each place setting in the form of a pumpkin or pine cone. I think they work really well with my natural burlap runner (Target). I decided to save my "give thanks" cinnamon clove pumpkins to dress up the food table. The place cards are free printables from the Handmade Home.

I kept the centerpiece simple with tapered candles (World Market), a mason jar with fall flowers and my late grandfather's turkey gravy boat. Seriously though, how cute is that turkey? : )

We are not a formal bunch when it comes to Thanksgiving, so I think this simple and sweet tablescape will be the perfect setting for my family to give thanks to God for each other, the food and our happy lives.

Speaking of, I'll be back later this week to share the menu for our amazing feast!

Are you ready for turkey day too?
