Let's Talk Turkey: Place Settings That Is

It's hard to believe, but Thanksgiving is only a week away so time to do a little seasonal decorating and tablescaping. I picked up a few napkins from Target's new Threshold line - they have a feather painted on in gold and I thought they were just so pretty at only $2/each. I've layered them with my Ralph Lauren Claire dishes, a gold leaf charger, wooden tiled place mats, and the orange linen tablecloth left from Halloween.

I love the glint of the gold mixed with the more rustic wooden pieces. It just looks so warm and cozy to me.

The centerpiece is a wooden candelabra (needs candles still) and two amber glass forcing jars that I've added tea lights to. 

The china cabinet also got a little restyling - probably the most traditional it's ever been with actual china in it this time, although I still like to mix things up with mis-matched pieces and asymmetrical groupings. The tureen is a Wedgewood piece, the brown and white transferware is Johnson Brothers "Friendly Village" pattern. I also kept some of my Halloween pumpkins around.

I'm still not over my little owl, so he's still out along with a Johnson Bros. ironstone plate in the background.

My owl candle is also still out, along with some amber stemware that I just love

Another random tureen (I love ironstone for mixing and matching) and some cute wooden bowls over on the side.

More of the Friendly Village and the amber stemware. 

And one last shot of the stemware - I just love how it glows.

The majority of this stuff was all thrifted, except the Friendly Village pieces, where were actually, ummmm, trashpicked rescued.
