A table is a blank canvas waiting for the wonder of creation. Preparing for the Thanksgiving feast is an opportune time for creativity coupled with tradition.
First onto the table are my always favorite pumpkins made from dryer hose and purchased from The Women’s Home many years ago. I don’t remember how much they cost, but I have more than gotten my money’s worth.
This year they sit on an April Cornell tablecloth folded as a table runner, and they nestle among turkeys of straw and glass.
No Thanksgiving would be complete without the Della Robbia dishes. The challenge is presenting them differently each year. This time around they will rest on dark green chargers from Michael’s.
Added to the setting are salad plates from another set of dishes purchased at Target
and finished with green glass bowls from World Market.
Utensils are wrapped in napkins and tied with ribbon that has all the colors of the table. Could someone tell me why I have 50 yards of it?
Now the table is set, the dressing is made, the turkey is roasting.
All we need are family and friends to arrive to share another Thanksgiving and express gratitude for all that has come our way.
I am grateful to all of you who spend time with me, and here’s wishing you a bounteous Thanksgiving.
