Josiah Wedgwood & Sons, Ltd. Turkey Platter Centerpiece

My husband bought me a beautiful turkey platter from Williams-Sonoma several years.  I used it only a couple of times when I prepared a turkey for Thanksgiving.  However this year, I wanted to create a centerpiece from it for my farm table this year.

The imprint on the back of platter states that is was made in England by Josiah Wedgwood & Sons, Ltd exclusively for Williams-Sonoma.

I shopped from my home on items that I could use on the platter.  White candles wrapped in ribbon, with mini pumpkins, fresh pine cones, wooden bobbins tied with twine, and fresh apples.  A pine cone candle was also added with the white pillars.

What kind of centerpiece are you making for your Thanksgiving table?

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. What a unique platter and your idea for using it as a centerpiece is so fun. Maybe I will pull out my platter from the Thanksgiving stash and see what I can come up with. Thanks for the inspiration. Have a terrific Tuesday!

  2. Your platter is beautiful and I love the way you turned it into a centerpiece.

  3. Right now I have sunflowers in a cheese dome and a ribbon of old material tied to the handle. I love your wonderful platter. Don't you love decorating with things we already have. Me too. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  4. Your platter is stunning, Kelly! And it makes a wonderful base for your lovely centerpiece! My centerpiece is pretty simple...a wood tray, pinecones, and a candle...

  5. What a pretty platter Kelly. Makes a great center piece. Great job.


  6. Oh, this looks lovely. And I really like your Thanksgiving plate. You can use this every year now and remember when your husband bought it for you. I love your farm table too. It looks sturdy and charming.

    I can't wait to see Jess' table this year. : )


  7. We are going to my son's in-law's house this year and it's kind of strange to not be doing any specific Thanksgiving decor. I have pumpkins and greenery on the dining room table and they do look pretty.

  8. I remember when we first got married people gave us pretty platters as gifts. At the time I just put them away in the original boxes and forgot about them for years.

    Now that I entertain and host dinners I use them all of the time. Although, I can't imagine my husband picking one out for me. That was sweet of yours to.

    I love WS too. Your centerpiece looks fresh and pretty!
