Thanksgiving Blessings - Blog Hop


Welcome to my Thanksgiving Blessings tablescape.
  I am happy to be joining up with many wonderful bloggers to give you our takes on Thanksgiving table decor for the upcoming season.  Chloe Crabtree from Celebrate & Decorate has assembled a fantastic Thanksgiving Blog Hop for all to enjoy, so please indulge in the links at the end of my post for more inspiration!

Grey and orange is the color palette of my table as dictated by the paisley tablecloth that started the whole table.  When I saw this tablecloth I didn't think twice about the purchase since plaids and paisleys are my thing.  
I really wanted to put complimenting plaid napkins with this table setting but I never found any that would work, so I settled on the plain grey napkins adorned with the bittersweet napkin rings.  
The pumpkins and squash took center stage, flanked by a pair of pheasant that I had used several years ago.


A little reminder of why we are gathering is at each placesetting.
 I think I am obsessed with this new flatware set that resembles a twig or branch (I have used it in my last three tables!) I thought it went well with the grey rims and branches on the dessert plates.
I am thankful for the many blessings that God has granted me and my family.  We will actually be having our big Thanksgiving dinner at my sister's house with other members of our family, so there will be many more than four place settings at that 
celebration.
 
If you look in the background of this photo - you can see we are still working on our fixer upper house.  The steps are partially painted and we have not put down the runner yet.
  I am thankful for a handy and patient husband!

  1. Hi Ann, and Happy November! You had me at plaid and paisley. Like you, I am in love with that classic pattern. Your textiles are perfect with your dishware and flatware! I would be using that flatware a lot too - very handsome, and just perfect for fall through late winter. I really like the pheasants too - a nice alternative to the expected turkey who mostly graces tables this time of year. Even if you won't be hosting Thanksgiving, you've definitely got a beautiful table set for a special dinner!

  2. Ann, I love your tablecloth and how you styled your table. Your autumn plate with leaves and acorns and the sweet bird is lovely. I love birds and my eye went right to your plate. Your gray linen napkin is perfect with the bittersweet napkin rings. Your entire plate stack is eye catching with scalloped edges and other textures. Plaid and Paisley is a neat blog name. I also love your etched crystal. I have a weakness for these goblets.
    Your 'Give Thanks' cards are a wonderful reminder of all of God's blessings. We are indeed a blessed nation. May your family enjoy a rich and bountiful Thanksgiving.

  7. Ann, I love your tags on your pumpkins. Great idea. So cute. Your napkin rings are really pretty and add such a nice natural feel to your pretty grey napkins. Orange and grey is a great combination. Very creative.

  14. Oh my gosh we have like minds. We both chose grey and orange. 😊 what fun to see your spin on the color combo. I love your orange plates and table runners. Very pretty table. Sheila

  15. While your paisley tablecloth is perfect, it is how you layered the other pieces that really makes it all work together. I really like how you turned the gray placemats so they hang down the table...or are those dish towels... if so, that is genius - they look fantastic! The plates with the bright orange leaves atop the other orange plates with the scalloped edges add so much interest to the dish stack. Your centerpiece with the cloches over pretty pumpkins all in a tray is a great focal point. I really enjoyed seeing this!

  18. You have every right to be obsessed with this flatware. It really is cool!!! What else is cool is the combination of grey and orange. I just think orange really pops against more colors than black for the autumn season. Grey is one of those cool (literally and figuratively!) neutrals that works so well with so many bright colors. I really dig your "Giving Thanks" tags, too. A great reminder that it's all about more than just the turkey and fixins'!!! Happy November to you!

    The pumpkin napkin rings are so lovely too! Love the pretty silverware too!
