Tablescape #9

Fall Feathers and Fowl

Thanksgiving Day is coming up soon.....This is my first Thanksgiving Holiday in Blog land.  What fun.  I've been looking in magazines and books for
Tablescape inspiration.

Since I'm exercising my thriftiness.  I've had a great time shopping for the  components to use in this tablescape. 

The lighting in the dining room was wonderful this morning. And, I wanted to set the table today with in a fall theme.  I'm going to leave the center piece on the table until tomorrow night.  My granddaughters are coming  over for dinner and I thought they would love to have a dress up night and enjoy 
Fall Feathers and Fowl 

I found the candle holder in a thrift shop for 2 dollars. It was my inspiration to carry out a natural theme for this tablescape.  Last week I took a day trip to my favorite store Click Here for their Christmas Open House and found the feathers, bird nest and the large bird. The tablecloth is vintage and I just bought the jade plants last week to put in the house for the winter.  I will plant them in two big urns next spring.  I'm always thinking about next year's garden. I'm so sorry I digressed. Now - back to the tablescape.

I just love these feathers.

The napkin ring idea was in a Bliss Victoria magazine, September/October 2008.  The wax thine, ribbon and faux leaves I bought at the craft store.  And, the napkins I bought at Big Lots  my other favorite store. Wine colored plates are from the DT.

The flatware is used everyday.    

 White Plates were a gift from my sister-in-law

The glass with the beautiful duck is part of a gift set from my oldest son about 30 years ago and the cordial glass is part of a set of six, each in a different color.  They are so delicate. 

I bought the little wooden duck from a young boy in Mexico and I have no idea where I bought the little glass duck.  It could have been a gift. Sorry, I don't remember.   

  Isn't this feather grand?

  17. What a delightful Pink Saturday visit. One of the fun activities for grandparents and grandchildren I enjoyed with my grandkids this week was attending a class with them that taught them some Thanksgiving Day etiquette including folding napkins and napkin rings. Yours are a delight they'd enjoy seeing. Thank you! And Happy Thanksgiving! :)

  22. What a wonderful idea to add the pretty feathers to the plants! This is a gorgeous table, with vibrant colors and textures. I was lucky enough to pick up a birds nest in the yard yesterday that the wind blew from a tree. (Guess the bird wasn't so lucky...)

  23. I'm surprised you've managed to keep those duck glasses for 30 years. Other than the stuff in the china cabinet that is never used, we rarely keep things more than a few years at most.

    Really like your jade plants. I have one too. Also like how you incorporated the bird nest and feathers for a festive natural look.

  24. I really like the napkin ring idea! And the duck glasses are wonderful!

  25. How pretty...your napkin rings are so festive!

    HaPpY pInK sAtUrDaY!
