Thanksgiving Tablescape

Did you have a wonderful Thanksgiving? Ours was superb.

I always find it hard to get back into the swing of things after a nice vacation, do you? But alas, life must go on.

I thought you might like a peek at our Thanksgiving table:

Not exactly as planned (is it ever?), but many of my new finds were put to good use and it felt SO good to inaugurate the dining room with our first formal dinner. Happy to report that nine of us fit just fine - it was a cozy dinner :)

The mint julep cups were treated to some gorgeous flowers sent by my sister-in-law - I had actually made myself crazy looking for those purple cabbage-y flowers (I still don't know what they are called), and lo and behold, they showed up at my doorstep! And they were perfection for the julep cups with some kumquats I bought at the store. Thanks Liz!

Full reveal of the dining room tomorrow...


  1. Love the play of color and pattern! Looking forwarding to see the full reveal tomorrow - purple is such a great choice for Thanksgiving.

  2. Very pretty. It's hard to tell from the small photos, but the purple appear to be ornamental cabbage leaves.

  3. Is that what they are called? So good to know, as I hunted for them - I absolutely love how pretty they are.

    Do I spy Dutchess by Vera Wang stemware?

  5. Your Thanksgiving dinner was to die for. First I ate with my eyes. Your table was gorgeous including those dynamite wine glasses. You are an extraordinary cook which I am still salivating over your delicious dinner. Thank you sooooooo much!!!!
