~Thanksgiving Table~

Once again the lovely and talented Susan at Between Naps on the Porch is hosting Tablescape Thursday.  Please be sure to stop by Susan’s blog to see all the wonderful Thanksgiving Tablescapes and even some Christmas Tablescapes.  Yikes, Christmas already!

Anyway, I forgot to take pictures at the very beginning of setting my table, oh well. 

I only have 4 leaf bowls, so I put red bowls at the head of the table.  I think the red gives the table a pretty shot of color

Down the center of the table I put some glittery netting and then some faux fall leaves


Pumpkins, Gourds and Candles were added.  Can you believe I have had some of these pumpkins since before Halloween?


I liked the Orange color in the clear vases


But, I felt the table needed some height and I could not figure out how to make the plants look good with the oranges so I exchanged the oranges for pistachio nuts


With some candlelight…

I like the texture the pistachio nuts add


Napkin Rings made by me…


One last picture…


Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

Hi, Aunt Nutty! This is my first time to your blog, and I enjoyed watching you layer this table up with fall goodness! Great job!

Happy Thanksgiving and a Happy Tablescape Thursday, too!
