My Thanksgiving Table Setting - 2013

Well I did it!  I finally finished up my table setting for Thanksgiving.  I wanted to have a very simple setting this year using autumn colors along with some natural elements.

By choosing this table runner with greens, rust, browns, golds was the perfect decorating element for the table.  Then by adding the green apple gourd, mini pumpkins, feathers and some Hypercium Berry was the look that I wanted accomplish.

Did you see my little turkey salt and pepper shakers, aren't they so cute?

My mercury container holding the feathers was a recent purchase at Paris Market in Savannah.

Pine cone turkeys were made by me with pine ones that I gathered, added feathers and pipe cleaner for the neck.

  1. I haven't actually set the table yet but I know what I am going to do. I have the napkins that match your runner!!!! But you can't have them!;>) I like your table, Kelly. I have a couple of those pine cone turkeys that the girls made when they were little and I bring them out like little treasures every year! Have a wonderful weekend- xo Diana

  2. Very pretty! Love the green apple gourd, so interesting, both in colour and in shape! I always make sure there is a natural element in a tablescape, for that fresh, lively quality and your pine cones and pumpkins are perfect for your Thanksgiving Day table!
