Happy Thanksgiving 2010!


Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm taking just a few minutes to post a quick look at Thanksgiving at our house!  Hope you enjoy.  I'm linking to Tablescape Thursday ... and offer special thanks to Susan for hosting!  Make sure you click through her favicon to see all the other neat posts! 

Just our little family of five ... set in blue  since Miss Phoebe's favorite color is still blue!  There is just enough teal in the Johnson Bros Turkey pattern to use this glassware!
The composed centerpiece in the next collage will probably
be moved to the dessert buffet table ... because we'll load the dinner
table with food!   The turkey has to be center stage!

 Tomorrow's temperature will determine whether soup begins the menu!.  If it does, we'll use our covered turkey soup bowls!  Notice the cute napkin rings that my daughter painted about 30 years ago!
I've made about every turkey favor you can think of, but this year I wanted to create something new!  That Cricut machine is wonderful ... the box is actually a large Hershey's Kiss in a box ... can't go wrong with chocolate!
 Here's a view of some of the other dining room decor.  The turkey platter was my mother-in-law's and is probably from the 1940s.  We use our Johnson Bros platter ... but love looking at this old one!
Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. Did someone say, "Turkey collection"? Boy, yours is great. Like the turkey gift boxes too. They look hard to make.

  10. Very nice! I am a couple of days late getting around to everyone's blog, but it's nice to see so many fabulous tables! The name of your blog, though, is messing me up. I was doing OK sipping on a glass of totally calorie-free water, but now I HAVE to go downstairs and get myself a slice of pie!!! :-)
