Thanksgiving Table

Hello everyone, I hope you all had a good week!

Today I'd like to share what I plan to use on my table for Thanksgiving.  We usually have a large gathering at my house or a relatives, but this year there will only be four of us.  I'll have the usual roast turkey and all the trimmings, but on a smaller scale, making sure there will be enough for leftovers, yum!

I've set the table with a set of  brown transferware dishes named Cavalier by Royal China. Sussex, made in USA.  I picked up the whole set for just a few dollars!  When I found the four pheasant plates by Rubel  I was so delighted.  I knew what I wanted to do with them!

I found the set of pheasant water glasses at a thrift store, also.  My Grandsons like to use them every time they come over.

The teapot is from Target.  Its heavy and makes a good large pot of  tea.

I'm using an old wicker basket fulled with a rattan pumpkin and a little boy statue for the centerpiece until the turkey takes center stage!

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and friends.

I'll be joining the following parties:  Teatime Tuesday,  A Return to Loveliness, Friends Sharing Tea, Tabletop Tuesday, Show and Tell Friday, and Pink Saturday.

There's something ironic to eating fowl from transferware with pictures of... fowl! ;) Lovely table setting, very Autumn-like! Happy Thanksgiving!

A lovely setting for your Thanksgiving Day feast! The china is perfect for fall and the pheasant plates and glassware mix are beautiful on the table. The teapot will be lovely to use for a hot warming drink for the cool fall weather. The tablescape is just perfect for a Thanksgiving family gathering.

Thanks, Pam

Hi Nancy,
Your tablescape is perfect for Thanksgiving! I really like the pheasants. Love the teapot too.
I am really enjoying the teacup you sent me. They look so pretty together and yes, they are in a good home! I will think of you everytime I look at them.
I wonder what stories the two teacups could tell. Thank you for coming to tea and have a splendid week, my friend.

What a beautiful thanksgiving table! It's nice to see some soft green and blue in with the browns and golds.
Leftovers at Thanksgiving are a must! I know my son is going to want loads of mashed potatoes. And one of our nephews will be joining us, too. We'll miss our daughter, but she's coming home at Christmas, so can't complain.

Wonderful table setting with rural charm. Beautifully embroidered tablecloth is supplemented by the rustic colors of the rural china. I love the teapot! I wish you a great week! Zinnia
