This year, we're going to have at least part of our Thanksgiving gathering in the cabin. It's a special place for me and its cozy atmosphere is perfect for appreciating family & friends.
Over the weekend, I wanted to set the table out there as sort of a trial run, and to get into the spirit of Thanksgiving, of course. I snapped some photos and thought I'd share them here with you...
Aside from the dishes, nothing really matches and I like it that way. A little of this and a little of that makes a table really shine.
(As often happens with us, Jo Ann found the exact same dishes separately from me and brought hers in to share...but I had mine first!)
Each place will be personalized with a vintage photo of a family member. I just love the vintage postcards sprinkled around and the transferware dishes are favorites too.
Here's another placesetting and in this one, you can see the sweet little turkey candle who makes an appearance every year.
I found him way back in 1973 and he's been part of our Thanksgiving ever since...
longer than Matt & Emily!
We'll use this little table for coffee & desserts after the feast. It includes one of my favorite finds...the little brown cow platter! Jo Ann and I found this in an antique shop in Lebanon, Ohio. Isn't it dear?
Thanksgiving is all about family & friends but getting your table (and the rest of the house!) all dressed up is part of the fun too...how will you make your Thanksgiving table special?
