Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!

This year I am so blessed to have to have TWO tables to set.  Most of my family and a couple of friends will be here this year.  I am serving my usual Hot Pilgrims to enjoy during the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade (that's the only one to watch!).  Here's the simple recipe:

Hot Pilgrims
1 large container of Cranberry Juice Coctail
1/2 container of Aspen Mulling Spices
(Cinnamon Schnapps to taste for those who would like it)
Heat and serve in Irish Coffee cups

My sister is letting me borrow a really beautiful copper beverage server for the Hot Pilgrims.  Look at the pretty napkin rings on Table #1.  I found those last year after Christmas at the Party Store in town.  I've used my Blue Willow with my turkey plates.  On Table #2 the white plates are from Big Lots, and the pumpkin tablecloth and napkins are from Wal Mart many years ago.  All of the goblets on both tables came from Ross or Wal Mart, and the flatware is Oneida Michaelangelo.  Notice my two-year-old granddaughter's place setting.  I found that at Cracker Barrel.

Have a wonderful Thankgsiving, Friends!

  1. Everything looks so festive, and I love your dishes... love that you have turkeys for both the big kids and the little ones. ;-)

    Hot pilgrms? That sounds neat! I will have to try it.

    Happy Tablescape Thursday and a Happy Thanksgiving, too!

  2. Oh what fun! TWO tables! :) I love the napkin rings on the first table, and the pairing of plates. Blue willow is my absolute favorite! These tables are both so great, Perfect for Thanksgiving! Thanks for sharing, and have a great day! Happy Holidays!

  3. I love the way you incorporated the blue into table is my favorite color and I was troubled how I could use it with Thanksgiving since so many of my everyday dishes are the cobalt blue....I love the colors in the tablecloth and how amazing it looks together - you really did a great job.
    That centerpiece is amazing, but the pumpkins and pilgrims is just precious.
    Happy Turkey Day!

  4. I hope you had a wonderful day today in your neck of the woods! Your tables are lovely and very festive. I hope the day was filled with joy.
