Tablescape Thursday

Tablescape Thursday is our fun day Susan at Between naps on the Porch hosts weekly. Thanks to Susan for hosting so we can enjoy our hobby and share with others! Click on her name for lots more inspiration.
Inspiration for today's tablescape was this white ceramic cornucopia. I bought it at a thrift shop about 20 years ago! I love it because it is so unusual being white!
It is filled with white faux magnolias and gold fruit.
The white Blessings block completes the centerpiece.

I'm using the gold leafed ceramic chargers from Pier 1 (20 years ago) with white Dollar Tree dinner plates. The ceramic pumpkins are from Dollar Tree.
The tablecloth has tone on tone fall leaves, it is from Ross (last year.) The pumpkin rings are from Hobby Lobby (this year.) I've had t he white sheer napkins several years. They have embroidered leaves on them.



I named this tablescape "Simple Elegance"
I thought about adding the gold mercury glass candle sticks,
but took them away since I used them in last week's tablescape


I think I like the cornucopia alone with just the Blessings plaque



A special place for you!

Plaque says: "Blessings - Remember to count them each and everyday"
(not just Thanksgiving! Added by me!)


Have a Happy Thanksgiving Day!

God's Blessings to you

Katherine

That white cornucopia is so pretty and so different. It gives this table a completely unique look. (And you can't go wrong with magnolias in my book)

Those chargers that you got twenty years ago look so pretty and substantial. It's hard to find that these days. I really like them too.

Greetings, Johanna

Beautiful table, Katherine...the cornucopia is gorgeous and makes the perfect centerpiece, is it a matte finish? The pumpkin napkin rings really pop against the white napkins. I like that you added those cute little pumpkins to each plate.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

That cornucopia is absolutely stunning. It caught my eye out of all of the tablescapes at Susan's today. I love the little ceramics too. I really need to hit Dollar Tree on a regular basis. It truly is an elegant table.

Very pretty table, Katherine! Love the pieces you used, and I like your white cornucopia. My mother had one years and years ago! Neat! I love those little pumpkins, too, and Dollar Tree is my favorite haunt!

I'm not sure if we are going to do that on Saturday or not. At this point, it depends on how I'm feeling. But if you come, please let me know. I would love to meet you if I'm up and about then. I'm not contagious. I'm trying to figure out what to do about table runners at this point because the ones I have aren't working with the china they want to use. I think maybe I ought to get white ones and then use something like red rick-rack on the sides. Then I thought about finding some Royal Stewart plaid and making my own. I don't want shiny ones because they won't work with the table in this less formal room., because I found shiny plaid ones at Marshall's. And solid red seems too bright with the wall color the stager picked. So it's table decision time. LOL!

There are going to be eight homes on the tour, Katherine. It should be fun! And Nights of Lights is always beautiful!

XO,

Sheila :-)
