Give Thanks Tablescape Blog Tour

Give Thanks Tablescape Blog Tour

My friend Katherine, at the blogΒ Katherine’s Corner, has organized a blog tour of some fall tablescapes with the theme “Give Thanks”. At the end of my post, you will find the links to all the participants. Please click through to some or all of the other bloggers for some inspiration!

I also participated in her Summer tablescape blog tour earlier this year, which you can see HERE.

When I saw that it was time for her fall tablescapes tour, I almost didn’t sign up. I don’t have a lot of dishes, or glassware, or silverware and I really thought I had nothing that I could use. But the idea sat in the back of my mind.

And after thinking about it for several days, maybe even weeks, eventually I realized that the perfect way to participate in a Give Thanks event, was to be THANKFUL for what I DO have and participate in this fun event!

So I started thinking about what I do have.

And about my things that make me thankful.

And how those things make me think of and remember people for which I am thankful.

And just like that, my tablescape began to come together and fall right into place.

My warm and cozy tablescape started with my herb print flannel tablecloth. My thrifted blue everyday Pfaltzgraff plates, and yard sale white Mikasa French Countryside breakfast plates, along with my yellow Sweet Olive Designs Fancy Scroll Collection bowls make up my place settings for this fall meal.

We will be dishing out potato soup from my largest antique yellow milk bowl. The smaller yellow bowl will be keeping our biscuits warm with its colorful fall napkin. And the smallest antique bowl in blue will serve us up some sausage patties.

Potato soup always make me think of my dear friend Emma Jean, who taught me to make the BEST potato soup, while I was hanging out at her house for hours on end! And my antique bowls make me think of my mama, who ran an antique store for years, which made it possible for me to afford to buy antiques, and loves me like no other.

For dessert we are going to spread loads of butter and homemade fig preserves and local honey, (from our backyard apiary), on our biscuits! Both are served from an antique wooden box, which is part of my box collection.

Fig preserves make me think of my daddy, who is no longer with us, but was a true farmer and who LOVED his fruit trees and picked the fruits to be made into something delicious. Honey makes me think of Mr. Menace and how very thankful I am to have found him and to be able to spend the rest of our lives together.

My feather wreath makes a nice colorful fall centerpiece, that I decided not to center, but to put to the side of the rather large table. I prefer it off to the side so that it doesn’t interfere with filling your plate from the serving dishes, which I like to have in the middle, family style.

My blue pumpkin and blue hydrangeas from my fall decorΒ add more color and much need height to my table. Instead of candles, I decided it was very fitting to use my fingertip oil lamp.

It’s not fancy.

But it’s us.

It’s how we live.

And for that, I give thanks.

      Thanks so much Lynda. I was a bit apprehensive about putting it out there publicly since it isn’t your typical beautiful tablescape. Thanks so much for your support. πŸ™‚
