Thanksgiving Dinner for Friends and Family

Welcome to My Cozy Corner.
This year we're having a small Thanksgiving gathering compared to the big dinners I prepared years ago.
I've set this table for four guests. On Thanksgiving we will be entertaining eight guests. I will add four more dishes and four different salad plates. Go Here to see last year's Thanksgiving tablescape featuring my other set of turkey plates. Mix and Match is the way to add charm and interest to a table setting.  (and I only have four plates of each set)LOL
The colors of Fall are so warm and beautiful.
 I've used this Bittersweet vine in many decorative ways this Fall. 
The amber votive lights and cuties make a low, compact centerpiece for my small table. 

To celebrate the delightful holiday I found four salad plates at Tuesday Morning last year. Two turkey plates and two plates with shafts of wheat. The antique chargers are my favorite and the dinner plates are Ralph Lauren, a Golden Anniversary gift. 

The crushed satin napkin with a rose is so delicate and soft.
My amber stemmed glassware is from the thrift store and is a beautiful addition to my table setting. I mixed and matched flatware from my mother's estate and the thrift store. 

The shaft of wheat is a quintessential symbol of the autumn harvest.

I'm very grateful to you for visiting My Cozy Corner.
Have a great week with your family and friends.
