Tablescape # 36

Hello Everyone,
I know when I do a Thanksgiving Tablescape The year is almost over.
After November 24th 2011
It is January 1st 2012.
December just disappears.
Please join me as I set our Thanksgiving table for November 24, 2011

Last year was my first Thanksgiving in Blogland. I was so overwhelmed with the myriad of wonderful Tablescapes.  If blogging was a job! I would say I LOVE THIS JOB~

Candle Stick Holders~Vintage Christmas gift. Define vintage-Anything over 50 years. Well I guess I'm vintage.  LOL~

Acorn Plates~Michael's Craft Store this year $1.00 each. Oven, dishwasher and Microwave safe. 
 I love them. Not just for decoration.

Salad Plate
Staffordshire - England Genuine Hand Engraving by Ridgway
"Antique Rose"

Please note: I had the dessert spoon above the plate, but as you can see the space is limited.  In my haste to photograph the tablescape I forgot to put the soup spoon in the correct place.
Senior moment~Please forgive me!

If you need a yellow dish - Go to the Dollar Tree.  I did.

Dinner Plate

Amber votives from a Thrift Store - 6 for $2.00

If you are new to my blog I love foul.  My Cozy Corner living room has many duck prints and foul related decor. 
But this Duck is my pride and joy. Why you ask?
My Son Carved It for Me.

I have different glassware and different shades of brown cloth napkins.  I purchased 4 brown napkins for a tablescape for 4 place settings.
With the 6 place setting I needed more brown napkins.  But alas I could not find the same ones.  So 3 chocolate brown napkins  and 3 brown napkins were used on this table.  I have read in magazines that it's OK to mix it up a bit.  

  different shades of colored napkins

The flatware is 'Affection'

The cups and the creamer are ready for coffee and some dessert.

I love the look of the GOLD Chargers

Wooden napkin rings give this tablescape a woodsy feel and I added a lighter brown tone napkin to the brown napkins at each place setting.

The lighting for the photos was from overhead and the time of day was around four in the afternoon.  We usually have our Thanksgiving Dinner in the evening.  And the table would have this lighting and the gold tablecloth adds more gold tones to the photos.

Thank you for joining me as I set the dinner table for a Thanksgiving feast at My Cozy Corner.

I'm joining some special folks that have made a big difference in my life this year.

  4. You will definitely have one of the prettiest table settings for the holiday. Wonder what it will look like afterwards.

  5. Beautiful table - I agree with LV's comment which is above mine at the moment. And smile as I think of what it will look like afterwards. Didn't I read you have all girls? Yep. It won't look that bad. :) I couldn't help think about washing them all. Or setting it and then removing plates. But then, I didn't know the soup spoon was out of place either. :) Beautiful carved duck, wait, who did you way carved it? Okay, there are some boys in the mix. Maybe it's just the grandkids who are girls? (I was reading your profile earlier). Anyway - wonderful post! Hope you have a very happy Thanksgiving. Happy Pink Saturday and thanks, enjoyed my visit! Jenn
