I’ll be having the family Thanksgiving dinner at my house this year and my mom is helping with the cooking. I decided to be a little unconventional in the décor and went with blue and white toile.
I added a grain sack runner down the middle. The toile tablecloth and napkins came from Williams Sonoma a few years ago. I also have it in red….you might see it again around Christmas!
I showed you a sneak peek of my “Thanks-Living” banner a few days ago. I have admired the burlap banners, but didn’t want to spend the money on one so I made my own.
It’s just brown craft paper, sticker letters and jute string. Very easy but I get the effect I wanted without any cost.
I tried hanging it different heights above the console. Here it is lower.
I’ve certainly gotten my use out of the hydrangea that I dried from my garden. The sun was streaming through the window so pretty on this morning.
You can see that I have two different plate settings. I was playing around to see which one I’ll actually use. I like using the fresh pears with name tags placed over the stems.
I really like the pears. I like their green color with the cobalt blue.
You’ve probably seen me use these cobalt blue vases before, too. Well, they’re not actually vases. They are empty Arizona Iced Tea bottles. I got the idea from a favorite café of mine that always had them on the tables with fresh flowers. I’m not sure Arizona even makes the blue bottles anymore.
I had fun photographing the pears. Fruit always looks good in pics!!!
Now if only the cooking was already done!!! Where’s the turkey?
