Thanksgiving in my Formal Dining Room! 2012 Edition

This year, I decided to add blue to my Thanksgiving formal dining room table setting, and 
I think Thanksgiving is a beautiful holiday for which to decorate, and I try not to ever skip it. We pull out the Christmas decor the day after Thanksgiving, and I am happy to get the threeish weeks we get with Thanksgiving.

The blue still totally feels like fall, but matches my house even better! I love to layer, layer, layer when it comes to setting a show table. You see a charger, dinner plate, salad plate, roll plate and napkin in holder all in one place, in addition to a candle cup and goblet. I don't set silverware out, because my baby likes to take off with things. But if I did, I would use the beautiful gold set I have.

 I added this lovely garland to my $5 thrift store light fixture, and hung all my Thanksgiving charms from it. I love the addition of the blue ribbon to tie in with the blue below!

Notice the turkey, platter and pumpkins on top of my curio? I love the simple touches that still make it feel like fall.

 You can see what I have done in previous years on my formal dining table for Thanksgiving HERE.
What are you doing to celebrate Thanksgiving?

Have a Happy and Creative Day!

You had me at blue....I'm such a blue and white girl. Sweet Mister and I decided many years ago that blue was a color with which we both lived well. I adore your treatment for your light fixture. I've previously used garlands in my chandelier, but the charms that you've used add a really special feeling to your design. Happy Thanksgiving! Thanks for inviting us for a peak. Cherry Kay

I love, love, love what you did to your chandy! You have given me an idea for next year. Right now I put some berries on a vine in there & call it a day.

Thanks for the inspiration!
