I have been excited to share my Thanksgiving tablescape with you, since so many of you commented and pinned my farm table post last month. If you missed the post, you can see it here: http://junkaholicsunanimous.blogspot.com/2013/09/10-find-antique-farm-table-and-fall.html. I have junked a lot in my life but I have to say that I think this table takes the (gluten free, egg free, casein free) cake!
I had a different look going on before Halloween with a lot of natural pumpkins and gourds and leaves, but I wanted to change the colors a little more for Thanksgiving by adding some browns and I did this simply through the use of pine cones and just a touch of grapevine. I kept the deer antlers and one of my muted Cinderella pumpkins, along with the green acorn squash I used for Halloween. I also added two cool-hued pumpkins for something different and to compliment the floral design on my teacups and plates. I found the candle holders in my junk stash. I had never really found an every day place for them in the house but they were too pretty to get rid of and they turned out to be just what I needed to complete the elegant/rustic look I wanted. I love the end result.
I love these dishes, marked Myotts Bouquet, made in Staffordshire England. I found a whole set of plates, cups and saucers at the flea market for $5 a couple of years ago. They have just enough brown, gold and dark burgundy to work beautifully in fall décor.
I added a little scoop of spicy rosehips and cinnamon sticks to each cup. Smells like autumn!
Love the frosty gray "patina" on this pumpkin, along with just enough soft orange and green to blend with the other pumpkins.
Love this picture, but I did just notice that my little boy put his cup directly on the table and it sat overnight and left a mark, and I forgot to fix it before taking pictures. Usually there is some sign in my posts that a happy little boy is allowed to "live" in our home! A random lego in a vignette, a lone Luke Skywalker stranded on a remote base under the table...
As for me, I'm flying north to the bed!
Hope you'll continue on with part two of Thanksgiving tour, which focuses on my mantel and buffet:
