Our Canadian Thanksgiving is coming up this weekend. I'm not hosting, but I thought I would play around with table settings to get us all in a Thanksgiving mood on this Vintage Bliss Tuesday. I challenged myself to set the table using only items that I already had lying around the house. I even clipped a few yellow flowers from the last holdouts in my outdoor flower boxes.
I took a look in my china cupboard at my inherited/vintage/thrifted pieces and decided on a gold and pink colour scheme. I love to mix and match various pieces and styles of vintage china so that even the odds and ends that aren't part of a set get some loving use. I also added some brass candlestick holders that my mom gave me. And the little pumpkin that I painted gold at my daughter's birthday party.
I selected forks and spoons from the box of silver-plated cutlery my mom gave me. I tied them together with a bit of pink ribbon from our craft area. The fresh, new linen napkins are from my mother-in-law. I'm happy with the overall effect - I think it's vintage with a modern sensibility. In fact, my little table setting kind of makes me want to host Thanksgiving. I guess there's always Christmas?
How do you set your Thanksgiving table?
