A surprise Thanksgiving

Greetings Everyone and Happy Tablescape Thursday! How are you all doing? Ready for Christmas? Presents wrapped and stockings stuffed? I am slightly behind schedule this year. The house is decorated, yet I still have  to bake the cookies and do the shopping. But, before I delve into all the Christmas Chaos I would like to share with you one of my thanksgiving tables.

Last year for my mothers birthday, I had bought martini glasses and recreated a holiday decoration I had seen in a magazine years ago.

Even had left over napkins from last years party! The napkins were also the inspiration for the silver and white tablescape.

The fireplace lit---it was nice and cozy when the guests arrived.

I love my individual gravy boats!

Champagne for our guests!

The candles are lit....


The food is ready 

The guest of honor!!!......(as always we grill our turkey on the gas grill-----soooooooooo goood!)

Now to reveal my secret....did you notice the dishes? They are not real----they are disposable!!! Awesome.!

I am usually not one to use disposable dishes, but these dishes look so real.....

Happy Thursday Everyone!

  1. I'm shocked - not that you used plastic dishes (noticed how many you were expecting), but that you just can't TELL there plastic. This is totally awesome. Your table looks fab; and agree that it's fun to have those individual gravy boats when you have such a big crowd. Kudos on a wonderful tablescape! Happy Holidays.
