Day to Give Thanks

Pin It I can not believe how fast Thanksgiving has come around this year, I swear it was just August yesterday. So, who's had snow? We had a few flurries today but nothing stuck (Praise God)!

Well before we get all gun ho on Christmas and snow we need to give Thanks. :)
Tonight we are going to set a table. I love a nice table! Zechariah (as of 5 days ago my 14 year old) even likes a nice set table, he requests them! Yes, my future daughter in-law you are welcome! lol

This table was beautiful, inexpensive and functional.

We started with a warm colored table cloth (I love this one because it reminds me of a flannel shirt and who doesn't love a flannel shirt in the fall), matching table runner and napkins.

The wreath in the middle is actually a floral vine. I just rolled it to be the perfect size around the plate.

The candle sticks were supper easy, they were foam pumpkins that I used a knife to core and spray painted gold. Finished with a matching candle stick.

I added some real cranberries and mini pumpkin confetti to the table and the wreath for color.

Napkin rings were made from two different pieces of scrapbook paper, a gnad and flower paper accents.

A beautiful matching silk flower for the center and it is complete.

The name tag is just card stock and a simple ribbon.

You will notice there is cranberries and orange in the drink, that is to pull together the cranberries on the table (along with garnish) :).

Now Bring On The Food!!!!

 If you look at the dishes, they match but are not matchie matchie. The pattern colors do flow together but not all the same pattern. A little variety in the table is a good thing, but you don't want it to look gaudy.

Hope I inspired you tonight to put some thought and attention when setting your table this Thanksgiving.
Have a great night,
