Happy Thanksgiving!

My Thanksgiving table

I've been so busy I did not have the energy to iron linen tablecloths last night, so I threw a roll of burlap on my table and set it with my assortment of creamware and some blue pumpkins.  I really love the contrast of rustic and refined on a table. 

My table last year was a bit more refined.  But I do something different for every dinner party.

Now on to finish off all the food that will fill these plates!

I'm so thankful for my family, friends, career, and this wonderful country where we can pursue our dreams freely and without restraint.  I hope you all have a lovely and tasty Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family, Carla.

Your table setting looks great. We have a similar tablecloth for tonight's Thanksgiving, too. :)

it looks fabulous for " I threw a roll of burlap down across the table top....."
Sometimes the less considered is the more effective!
