A Thanksgiving Tablescape

I LOVE setting the Thanksgiving table, especially since I found these cool turkey dishes at T.J. Maxx a few years ago. Here are a couple of ideas - the Twig Vase (on either side of the pumpkin) - HERE
  are the directions. Thanks, Martha Stewart! For the pumpkin "vase" in the middle, I scooped out the inside and painted the pumpkin brown. Using an orange peeling tool, I scratched off the paint in the grooves of the pumpkin to make "stripes". I placed a water glass inside the pumpkin for the flowers. Of course, I just picked up a couple of fall mixed bouquets from Publix.


The napkin "ring" is just a gift tag cut on the Cricut, tied with a satin ribbon and using a Thanksgiving quote. You could use a Bible verse, a quote or make it a place card with a name!

Just a little over a week until Thanksgiving Day! Looking for new ideas form this year's table! I can't wait for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, German Chocolate Cake, Turkey, Ham, Dressing and Cranberry Sauce (Do you make dressing or stuffing?) and more, but most of all time to spend with family and friends!
