Happy Sunday! I am joining Cheri for her weekly Sunday Favorites where we share a past post for you to enjoy. This post is from Nov 2009 and my first tablescape...boy have I come a long way baby! I hope you enjoy a trip back to my early days of blogging then stop by Happy To Design for other Sunday Favorites!
I am joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.
This is my first tablescape and I know some of my photos aren't the best, I had to use the flash but I am excited to share my Thanksgiving table with you. I had such a good time getting this table ready for my family.
I started out with this......
And ended with this.....
A few details on the table....
So many of you shared this adorable acorn salt and pepper shaker that I had to have them...50% off at Cracker Barrel...so cute!
To continue the acorn theme, I found this very cute dish at Kohl's also 50% off, it will hold my cranberry-strawberry relish tomorrow.
The cardinal sitting on an acorn was bought for 50 cents last summer at THE LONGEST YARD SALE....How cute is he?
Finding these plates changed my whole table setting and I love them! Fitz and Floyd plates marked down several times and with an additional 40% off I paid $3.50 each....the center detail is wonderful.
The dark red dinner plates are Goodwill finds for 98 cents each
The glassware is all thrift shop, as are the napkin rings. Placemats, napkins and table runner picked up here and there all on sale. The flatware is monogramed family silver from Mr ALC's family. Butter dish is a flea market find. Pumpkin bowls WalMart.
So the table is set for four and waiting for food and family.
I have many reasons to be Thankful this year. It has been a year of ups and downs but I am staying positive that there is only good to come. I am blessed with a wonderful mate, family, friends and my new Blogging Family!
Here's Wishing All of You a Very Happy Thanksgiving!
So there it is! I look forward to a new tablescape for Thanksgiving this year and many more!
