Setting a Post Thanksgiving table is usually what I do
when we return from our trip to be with our very large family
and extended family for Thanksgiving.
I love to cook our own turkey so we can have a small family celebration
with leftover turkey to share.
Although it is so beyond wonderful to celebrate our blessings with my entire family
of siblings, nieces and nephews, their spouses, and my mom ….
I am also very THANKFUL TO bHOME.
The tablescape started with placing a faux Magnolia garland
in the center of the table. The Magnolia garland is from Balsam Hill.
After Thanksgiving, the garland will grow legs and will walk to another place in the house.
Today, is Day 2 of the bHome “Thankful to bHome” Blog Tour.
I am joining 4 other bHome bloggers and friends today.
You can see the links of today’s participants and also the participants of Day One below.
They are not to miss!! There is also a great giveaway with details at the bottom of the post.
The magnolia garland makes it easy to create a centerpiece
as it provides for a wonderful base to work with.
It is fun to gather items to adorn the garland
using things such as pumpkins, additional pinecones, wheat stalks, antlers and
wonderful flickering Miracle Flame Candles, also from Balsam Hill.
I am using the same napkins from last year that I had monogramed
to say “Give Thanks”.
I am thankful for the blessings of family.
I tucked the place card into a tiny orange Kalanchoe plant.
Love using things such as a plant for a parting gift.
I was happy to get these sweet tiny orange Kalanchoes at Trader Joe’s.
The perfect punch of color for the table.
I chose orange for an accent color as it goes so well
with the antique blue and white Noritake dishes that I got from my friend Martha. We miss Martha!
I found this beautiful blue and white bowl on the place setting at TJ Maxx along with 3 others.
I loved the pattern and it reminded me of my mother’s rice bowls … when I turned the bowl over
to see who made it ….. I was pleasantly surprised it was from a company in Yokohama, Japan.
A place near and dear to my heart!
I tend to do some “out of the box” things on my table.
Like placing the silverware on a plate.
The table is set that will be waiting for us when we return.
As I sit at the table, I will be thinking in-between table conversations, of how I will
dress the table for Christmas!
And with every table for Thanksgiving that I set, this little Turkey that my Sweetie
made for me many years ago, will always have a place of prominence on the table
by this very sentimental Grandma!
Hope you enjoyed my Post Thanksgiving Tablescape.
