Do Turkeys Like Thanksgiving?

Just a few more days of Fall before bloggers will bring on the Christmas tables!

Oh, and speaking of Christmas, :)  Dec 15th I am having a White Christmas Party.  Hope you will join in!  White table with silver or gold and greenery, a winter wonderland!  If you are not into tables, how about some white foods, or a vignette.  There will be a give away too, as I will be celebrating my 2nd Blogoversary in Dec.  Grab a button, if you would be so kind, and start thinking! (top right)

But tonight, it is  a pre turkey day table.

I got these at CTS, for 50 cents!  Look at those little buttons on the wings!

A wood lantern from CTS last year, surrounded by a garland of leaves with mini gourds and pumpkins tucked in.

The tablecloth is a nubby fabric and the design looks like little acorns.

A bronze colored charger from Michaels, a gold plate and salad plate, $1.00, orange flatware.  Pumpkin casserole from CTS.

Amber stem, Villeroy and Boch, wine from Savers.  Leaf plates from Pfaltzgraff, as well as the turkey spreaders, .46.

The amber bubble glass pitcher was a great bargain.  It is from Pfaltzgraf and it was .96!  Ceramic pumpkin  salt and peppers from the supermarket.

Thanks so much for visiting.  Please stop by Susan's at
Between Naps on the Porch for a whole mess of tables!

For dinner we have Shrimp baked with feta cheese, fresh tomatoes, over rice, and sprinkled with bacon.  I don't have a recipe, I just wing it,  LOL!

The mister enjoyed it, and will let me make it again!  :)

I am joining Gollum for Foodie Friday .

Yvonne at Stone Gable has announced a wonderful give away of a set of Christmas dishes.  I have never seen anything like them, go take a look!

Thanks for hosting, Ladies!

  6. Love the whole table, Kathleen. I think that tablecloth with the little acorn looking nubbies is perfect.

    I'm just dying to get to the CTS that opened about an hour from here. They always have such great things for the table. I love those napkins and the little pumpkin dishes. They (dishes) would be perfect for my pumpkin casserole.

  9. A lovely tablescape, Kathleen. I LOVE those amber glasses and that pitcher... a new favorite color of mine, btw. Your shopping skills, and finds too, are truly commendable!!! I wonder... did your meal cost more or as much as the tablescape? :-)

    And I grabbed a button! I may not pull it off, but we shall see.

  10. Hello Kathleen! Love your turkey table. I'm thinking turkeys aren't too happy with Thanksgiving. My son's new digs in Eastern Washington have wild turkeys walking across the property. I'm excited about your white Christmas party. I'll put my thinking cap on! :0)
    Oh the food looks real good too!!

    I love the colors of the table. The glasses are beautiful. I can't believe the bargain on the pitcher. Great little place card.

  22. Kathleen, What makes me love this table so, besides the great autumn colors, is your attention to detail! I just love the little touches that you put together so effortlessly.
    The corn place markers, the turkey spreaders, the leaf plates, the nubby acorn tablecloth and that fabulous lantern centerpiece.

    I am putting this table away in my "favorite fall tablescape" file.
    This table is warm and inviting and a delight for the eyes!

  24. This is a wonderful turkey-day table, Kathleen! The wood lantern as a centerpiece adds the perfect natural touch and the little-acorn tablecloth is a terrific backdrop. The tiny corn "placecards" are so cute! Yummy looking shrimp dish!

  36. Kathleen this is an adorable table! I love the centerpiece and the tablecloth.

    my friend and I went to the Staten Island CTS last Friday! They had lots of cute holiday things but I controlled myself as much as possible but still spent $150! They had lidded pumpkin bowls that went into and out of my cart three times as I loved them but I kept asking myself where I was going to store them after the holidays..lol I need a bigger house or more closet space! My weakness is books and I loved the cookbook and holiday book selections there. We also got really cute fabric Halloween and autumn gift bags for 10 cents!

    I bought a lot of food stuff. The jarred German sauerkraut is really good and the panetone was also a good price.

  37. Wow! You really know how to shop the bargains, but you could never tell it by your table. Everything looks just perfect and that shrimp! Don't get me started!

  54. Kathleen, I love those napkins (are they towels). They are just way too cute! Your table looks so pretty. Darn! You make me want to go to a CTS soooo badly. Love those pumpkin casserols too. And that shrimp has me salivating! When I "wing it", it never looks that good, and I bet it doesn't taste as good as yours either. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. laurie

    ReplyDelete
  55. Your shrimp have my mouth watering. I need to learn just how you wing it :-) I love your Thanksgiving table. It might be one of your best tables yet!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Kathleen,
    your table is wonderful with all the cute details, like the nice napkins with turkeys. I guess, turkeys don't like Thanksgiving. Your table is just lovely with the golden fall colors. Your food looks delicious, I am hungry now.
    What a nice idea of a white christmas table Party. I will try to join in and I will take your button on my sidebar from 1. Dec.
    Greetings, Johanna

  57. Once again, a lovely and appetizing table, Kathleen!! What cute little turkey towels/napkins. LOL- I kept trying to figure out what the heck was in those pumpkin bowls before I read that they were little ears of corn being used as place markers. :-)
    Your shrimp dish looks yummers. I am so hungry right now and need to come up with a plan for dinner tonight. We're off to a movie so it has to be a quickie. The meal, Kathleen.....
    Take care and enjoy your Thanksgiving holiday. We are hitting two places for dinner and one for dessert. I had better pace myself! ♥
    hugs, Sue

  60. Hi Kathleen,
    Your table is GORGEOUS! I LOVE the "Glow" of Autumn and you capture it perfectly! I have ASKED the turkey's that "Hang out in my yard" if they like Thanksgiving AND they report that they like it JUST FINE! They DO know I'm an old softee and like my bird Cleaned from the butcher though, hehe... Have a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving! Hugs, Donna

  61. Hi Kathleen, You have set such a pretty table and I love the lantern and amber glasses. The shrimp dish looks fabulous and I would love to know how you make it.

  64. What a gorgeous tablesetting! I wish we had a CTS in the state, you find such wonderful things for so cheap.

    The little indian corn for place markers is such a fun idea.

  65. The multi-sized card reader is indeed the one to which I was referring. Although I eventually found my dedicated USB cord, I find that I now use the card reader more often than the original cord. I'm always leaving something or the other when I visit my grandkids, so I figure that it will continue to come in hand periodically. Now you'll always be able to download the Tablescaper's pic directly to your computer. Maybe that will end up being worth the purchase. Hope so. Cherry Kay
