Thanksgiving Table 2016



Hello Sweet Friends,

Bet this finds you bustling around 

taking down your Fall decorations
or maybe you are way ahead of the 
game and looking for trees and gifts,
and starting to make your nest all 
beautiful for this sacred and highly
 favored time of year!

It is my most favorite time of the
year, for sure..............
Christmas!! 
The Birthday of Jesus!!


Not much going on around here
accept I have spent the day taking 
down and packing away my Fall 
things yesterday, and the house
 looks so pitifully empty....😢


But... in a few days it will have
a whole new look..............😁

Since I have nothing to share to do 
with Christmas as of yet,  thought I 
would just share our Thanksgiving 
Table from this year.





I put the other leaf in and made the 
table larger for a change. Much
more roomy like that, only problem
is I only have one tablecloth that
work with this size, fortunately,
it is gold and was perfect.
Then added my pretty burlap
runner with lace.






Decided to use my shabby chic dishes and
 a variety of Fall colors this time around.
Green, rust, gold and dark brown napkins,
 and faux sugar fruit to add a lil interest,
at each place setting






For the centerpiece:
I used my lovely white pumpkins stolen
 from the mantle, and replaced with the
 gold ones I had on the table before. 
Some gold mercury glass votives,
 preserved leaves from Asheville, 
pinecones, nuts, 2 real white baby
 boo pumpkins and a few colored
 votives with leaves did the 
trick...........

Lil darlings place, notice the bunny
silverware...lol
Gave her more fruit so she would 
have something to play with.........
she was not feeling well, so didn't 
do too much playing ......and turned
out she had a double ear infection,
bless her heart!  Doing much better
now tho...........





I used clear and brown glasses 
that were in the same shape, 
just to add a lil more brown to 
the table.






The Lefthand side of the centerpc.






a nice overview






It think it has a subtle Fall look













Thought I would throw in a few of the
 recipes that I have already posted on my
 blog before, just in case someone would
 like to try them. They are great make 
ahead dishes for the holidays................



We had a lovely dinner............


Scalloped potatoes

24 hr. salad/ and regular salad
Broccoli casserole

Cranberry sauce

5 grain Italian Rolls

Iced Tea/lemon


Dessert was:

Peanut Butter Pie (my daughter 
made this and it was a real hit.
It was Pioneer Womans recipe,
absolutely Delicious!!)

Pumpkin Pie

Cheesecake Bites





Thanks for stopping by........



Hope Thanksgiving at your
house was beautiful, delicious,
 full of love, good fellowship
and fun.........and most of all
Thankfulness..............




Love, Hugs and 
Last of November Blessings,
Nellie
