Tablescape Thursday – Thanksgiving 2009

When my mother and I arrived at my sister’s house on Thanksgiving day, my sister had the table mostly set. Since she had had a very busy night on call at the hospital, we had planned to do it together. However, she had a surge of energy after arriving home and just kept on going.
Each year at Thanksgiving she uses the Royal Worcester "Evesham" dishes. This year she used a simple white damask tablecloth.
As she had last year, she also used her large ceramic cornucopias and bowls of ceramic fruit. Only, they were placed differently. There were two new candlelabras on either side of a taller one as the centerpiece. The cornucopias were placed at opposite corners, while the smaller fruit bowls were at the other two corners.
As I started to take a photo, I noticed that the flatware was missing:
We soon corrected that...

Amid the "Evesham" goblets and other items were several bottles of the family favorite Martinelli sparkling cider – regular apple flavor, grape and cranberry in another brand.



The table looked lush with color and warm beauty. Soon after this, the table was full with laden plates and eager eating and laughter from the six of us.

I am glad you visited today and hope you will come again soon! Please leave a comment.
Be sure to visit our hostess Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for more Tablescape Thursday posts.
