THANKSGIVING 2010

Tomorrow is the day!  The table is set and the menu has been chosen.  Early tomorrow the cooking will begin.  Thanksgiving 2010

 This year will be a table for two!
 Mr ALC and I will enjoy a more casual setting
I am starting with this wonderful burlap table runner
This was made for me by Debbie at Confessions of a Plate Addict when I won her giveaway! 
I used green leaf shaped place mats and these Metlox dishes that I found at a Salvation Army.  This pattern is called Woodland Gold.  
There will be coffee to go with dessert
I love the leaf colors on these dishes
We will be using Mr ALC's family silver
This acorn bowl will hold gravy this year
My Pilgrim S & P are so cute and from the
Publix grocery store ad...these were a limited edition and  now a cute tradition on my table.
We will have turkey, dressing, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes & gravy, rolls and an apple pie for dessert.
I found this matching water pitcher at another thrift shop
Amber water glasses and green wine glasses
A simple centerpiece with the candles lit
These leaf shaped votive's will add a glow to the meal
I am really looking forward to tomorrow! 
I am so grateful this year for my many blessings.
Family, friends, home and health.  A Grandbaby due in April and the joy of watching my daughter become a Mother.  Life is good! 

I am joining Suzanne 
at Colorado Lady
and
I'm joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch
for Tablescape Thursday! 

Remember there will not be a Junkin Finds Friday tomorrow but please come back next Friday Dec 3rd
Happy Thanksgiving!
Always,
Linda

Thank you so much for your sweet comment. I've been on hiatus for a while, I had a very dear friend pass away suddenly on November 5th and it just rocked my world to say the least but it has reminded me about how importand it is to tell our loved ones how much they mean to us while they are here...strange but you are in that category!
Blessings to you,
Terry

Linda, this table is so pretty. I love that dish pattern. I don't think I've ever seen that one before. Your burlap runner is perfect with this setting, and of course, you know I love your amber stems and green stems. (I used my amber stems for T'gvng too, and some green stems that were a wedding gift. Those s/p shakers are adorable. I hope you and your husband had a wonderful day. Your header is so cute with the scrabble letters. laurie

Charlotte said...

Beautiful table! I would love to have a table this beautiful but my redneck family would not let that happen. I get mean looks everytime I try to teach the kids (and men) how to eat with manners.
