Pumpkins and Pilgrims and Turkey, Oh My!

I think I have shared before that I love fall! I love Christmas, but after Halloween, I decorate for Thanksgiving! 

This tablecloth is a beautiful shade of green, but I just can't get it to photograph beautifully! You will just have to take my word for it!

I am using wooden chargers with leaves embossed on the rim with my Spode Woodland Turkey plates. The stemware has both silver and gold touches just like the flatware. I am using old gold napkins with metal napkin rings.

I found these vintage Thanksgiving images on little clothespins at World Market. They pin right onto the napkin rings!

For my centerpiece, I put a beaded pumpkin placemat in the center and put some leaves and acrylic jewels around and place a turkey in the middle.

I put some corn pillar candles on golden pillars at each end.

Each place got a Thanksgiving Cracker (from Amazon) and a Pilgrim Place Card (from Paper Source).

I can't wait to open the crackers and see our treats!

The dining room tea cart is still full of Thanksgiving goodies.

So is the hanging shelf!

I have a nice selection of Spode Woodland in the kitchen ready for the big day!

And, of course, a Turkey Platter!

My sweet husband saw me drooling over the Staub Pumpkin Cocotte in Sur La Table and bought it for me for a Christmas present. Then he couldn't wait to give it to me, so I am already enjoying it while pumpkins are still in season!

Here is a Hunters' Chicken I prepared in it. Delicious! I just love it!

Still counting my blessings here - I will be sharing this with Between Naps on the Porch and Rustic and Refined.
