I have one Thanksgiving decoration. It is a white ceramic turkey I found at Goodwill several years ago. Inspired by another person in blogland that also doesn't do fall colors, I decided to give it a try and created this November table setting.
I usually don't do faux plants but last night my son and I walked to Walmart and found this grapevine in the clearance for 25 cents and decided it would look nice around my turkey. What is it about Ball canning jars? I know I am not the only one, they just make me happy and I have no idea why. I have never canned in my life! The blue glasses that have the texture that remind me of ice I have been collecting at Goodwill for years. Does anyone know what they are called? Whatever they are, an icy drink served in them just seems to taste better!
This is the dinner that was served at this table setting..homemade turkey noodle soup and cornbread. I must admit I use the term "homemade" loosely...the noodles are actually Reames frozen home style noodles (they are delicious) and a turkey my husband smoked on our Traeger the other day. If I have to add a couple ingredients together I consider it homemade :).
|The candlestick shown here were my Grandmothers, she got it as a wedding gift. There were 2 but Wyatt broke the other one when he was like 4 years old. I am glad I still have one!|
The plates I got a couple years ago at HomeGoods. The bowls I got last year at HomeGoods.
I was hoping to be able to get more dishes in that lovely blue color but HomeGoods never got them in again. Now I am just hoping to find more at Goodwill someday.
Thanks for stopping by my very non-traditional (as far as color goes anyway) November table setting!
