A Short Season for Thanksgiving Decorations

I’ve really dragged my feet putting away favorite Thanksgiving figures. Although I love to decorate for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas, the

major downside is them all occurring back-to-back, over three months.

Some years it feels like I barely got things up before its time to put them away – and move on to the next holiday. That was especially true of Thanksgiving this year, which came really early. Even though we went to out-of-town to enjoy the feast with family, there were still five days left in November after we got back!

Today, I thought I’d share  favorite Pilgrim and Native American Thanksgiving figures with you, before they are tucked away for another year. (more…)

When One Thanksgiving Table Won’t Do

Today, I feature a second Thanksgiving table from the same holiday feast. A large Fitz and Floyd turkey tureen is the star of this tablescape.

Set for four, the table offered a more intimate setting for a small family group. While a larger group of nine were seated in the dining room. Other years, I’ve needed to set up a third banquet table in the family room

A continuation of yesterday’s post, Cornucopia Takes Center Stage on Thanksgiving Table, both tables were set for the same Thanksgiving meal, when a crowd of out-of-town family were here for the holiday.

The more the merrier!

Have you begun to pull out the good china, crystal, silverware, linens, servers, platters, candles and the many elements that go into setting the Thanksgiving table? I usually begin the weekend before, pulling out the table pads and ironing the tablecloth and napkins. Depending on the number of guests, it can mean setting up multiple tables in several rooms. Today, I’m sharing part one of two Thanksgiving table settings I used for the holiday a few of years ago, when  out-of-town family came in from five cities. (more…)

My Favorite Holiday of the Year

KIds Thanksgiving Table Turkey
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of the year because its all about family, traditions, and celebrating in a non commercial way. In addition to Lenox china, Waterford crystal and vintage sterling (it belonged to my husband’s grandmother) in the formal dinning room, I love setting tables and decorating the kitchen with more casual Thanksgiving tableware all month long. That includes creating sometimes non traditional centerpieces and even decorating the chandeliers overhead!
