A White Thanksgiving

Fall, Thanksgiving and Christmas is the time of year that my home becomes a palette.  Shopping the house makes for a little challenge here and there.


 

Most of my serving pieces are white, so with a little burst of color to set off the table, we are ready for Thanksgiving!






I love this beautiful Turkey platter that I found at Goodwill last year.


April Cornell napkins and tablecloth from Kohl's.
Stemware and Soup Tureen from Goodwill. 

We're almost ready!

Are you??

Another lovely tablescape, Jocelyn! Looks like you're all set for the holidays.
I have always liked those platters but I do not have one of my own. I have three big platters already so I really don't need another. Thank you for sharing your lovely table with my HOME and enjoy the rest of your week.

Blessings,
Sandi

It's fun to shop the house! You get reacquainted with beautiful pieces that you may have overlooked had you gone shopping for something new. You pulled together a great Thanksgiving table here with lots of white to break up the deep color saturation. I hope you and your family enjoy a peaceful and safe Thanksgiving!

Very pretty table! You've reminded me that I own a large white serving platter with a turkey on it! Pretty tablecloth! Kohl's has some nice stuff and good prices! Looks like your table is ready to go! Have a great Thanksgiving day!

You have put together a beautiful table. I think it's wonderful that you are able to use many items you already had and end up with such a great presentation! I hope you have a nice Thanksgiving.

I love that you used your pretty white dishes and added pops of color. The platter is a wonderful piece. I love the colors and all the pretties you found while "shopping"! xo marlis

Wonderfully warm and inviting table. I like the use of mini-pumpkins on each placesetting. Gorgeous centerpiece.

Your centerpiece is lovely with fall colors and the candle in the center. The white really gives a nice accent to your table and the tablecloth and napkins are the perfect hue used as a background color and texture. Pretty photos with the soft lighting! Have a great Thanksgiving!

Thanks, Pam

I have a thing about white dishes and china.. I only like to eat off them because I can see my food.. call me odd but I love the look. You did a great job with adding the colors to your table scape...
Happy Thanksgiving
