{ these are a few... }

of my favorite things...

thanksd

I'm not hosting Thanksgiving this year...that's best left to the experts, aka my mom {Thanksgiving brunch} and my bro-in-law {Turkey Day dinner}.  Still, a girl can dream about what she'd like her Thanksgiving table to look like if she suddenly became the hostess with the mostess...
1. Rich Autumn colors as seen in these vintage ribbons
2. Candlelight accented by glass hurricanes and natural elements
3. Simple, print at home place cards
4. An eclectic mix of vintage turkey transferware 
5. Any piece of Frances Palmer's pottery would do {I especially love the aqua}
6. Parting gifts for the guests like these mini notecard sets from emmalynne
7. Natural table linens like this vintage inspired jaquard tablecloth

I'd love to be at your Thanksgiving table. I especially like the aqua addition as it pairs so nicely with the browns and oranges.

We always go to my husband's or my family's house for thanksgiving, so I've never set my own table either. Some day...

I'm not hosting dinner either. Maybe next year, when we have a dining room table and chairs. I do love your favorite things though:)

I am hosting Thanksgiving. I love doing it. It is ironic though that the one person in the family that doesn't eat meat has to prepare it for everyone else??!! Don't really appreciate the tofurkey thing.

Look at all that ribbon :) I'm drooling!

I am never cooking Thanksgiving dinner because my sis-in-law declared it was not my holiday (not being American) so I make up for it at Christmas!! We do have a casual pre T-Day dinner with a couple of friends and that tablecloth would be perfect!

please sir said...
