Our Thanksgiving Table (2011)

And the countdown to Thanksgiving beings!  Over the weekend I finished up my grocery list and actually made it to the store.  I “think” I have everything, so I’m hoping I don’t have to return to the store for “one more thing!” I also completed our Thanksgiving tablescape:)

This year, our Thanksgiving table was inspired by all the luxurious shiny gold I’m seeing and loving these days in fashion and home decor.   The place card for the table (a spray painted pear and computer-crafted label) sparked the idea.

 

I’m particularly fond of white flowers and paired them with white candles.  Those gold vases were only $5 at Homegoods!
I incorporated black satin ribbon, lace, and feathers into this years’ table.

    I used LOTS of pheasant feathers in my Thanksgiving decorating too. I'm pretty sure I may be the only one on the net using them in decor who didn't purchase them! (Last season's pheasant hunting trip, courtesy of the husband)

    Looks lovely.
