Tablescape Thursday – Thanksgiving Table


The past several days have been very busy, so I haven’t been posting at all. I also did not have time to do a tablescape. So, for Tablescape Thursday this week I thought to share the table my sister and I put together for Thanksgiving Day dinner, 2008 at her home.

We started with a lovely cut work tablecloth:

The place setting consisted of Royal Worcester "Evesham" plates (which we both have), set on gilt chargers and topped with white napkins in fruit napkin rings:

The flatware is gold. We decided to place the napkins alongside instead of in the plate:

My sister is a very exhuberant in her home decor and likes big, dramatic design. The centerpiece included two large ceramic cornucopias filled with pomegranates and other fruit:

Also, ceramic fruit arrangements in a white bowl at opposite corners of the table:

The glasses are matching"Evehsam" goblets; additional ceramic fruit are placed about the table:

This view shows the. center of the table with has 2 tall and 2 shorter candlelabra, the two conrucopias, and a big bowl of ceramic fruit in the center.

At one end of the table was an Evesham bowl with white napkin all filled with croissants:

We sisters always have such fun setting the table for each Thanksgiving dinner, no matter which of our homes we are celebrating in that year. Here is the 2008 result:

In this view we had changed the goblets to golden shimmering ones:

This is how it looked with the Evesham glasses; also Evesham salt and peppers:

The food was served buffet style. Well, there was no room on the table for the delectable banquet we enjoyed that day!

Be sure to visit our hostess Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for more Tablescape Thursday posts.
