There is no better way to begin the month of November than a beautiful tablesetting with my brown transferware. It surely says late fall to me..
Just a short update..the glasses are no longer..lol I replaced them with Antique by Lenox in brown.
much more elegant, I think...
the new glasses
Here is the older post..
Every November I start using these brown and white dishes as I get ready for Thanksgiving. This week are the 9 in dinner plates...more like a luncheon plate to me.....or a big salad plate..
I thought I would add these beautiful blue salad bowls to bring out the blue in these plates.. I am just crazy about colored glass and it has been one of my collections for years... I especially like it when it is placed near or in the windows....the way it casts shadows just makes me happy..
Once again, my dishes have a memory...these depression glass plates....candlewick, I think...belonged to my grandmother.. I got them when my Daddy closed out his house about 3 years ago..I really like the texture they bring to the setting....
Acorns and oak leaves to match the border on the plates....
I have lots of these glasses in 3 sizes.... a really good ebay purchase several years ago..They are Old Williamsburg by Imperial..
Just some of my turkeys and an alabaster urn with my Thanksgiving cactus. and a green metal urn with another cactus..
Simple, but it says November..Brown and white, pewter silverware and brown toile cloth.....acorns and oak leaves...
It seems I have so much to do in the next 3 weeks. I always get like this about 3 weeks out and think I will NEVER get it all done in time. Starting to feel a little overwhelmed so I know that tomorrow NEEDS to be a planning day.. I have to get it all laid out and the menu made...Then I will realize just how much I love all of this and every.singe.year.without.fail, I start to feel overwhelmed like this...and every single Thanksgiving goes off without a hitch...and if we do have a hitch, it's usually not a big deal..
How do you go about planning for Thanksgiving? Maybe I am needing a little Flylady encouragement. LOL
