My Casual Chic Thanksgiving Table

Before I head back into the kitchen, I wanted to share some glimpses of our casual chic Thanksgiving table this year. In the images the table is set for four, but tomorrow it will be extended to seat a few more guests.


Contemporary patterns in greens, blues and browns are mixed and play off the Italian China. The yarn turkey place cards were made a few weeks back. I love how they look on the napkin by Pomegranate.
A gilded pheasant figurine, collection of colorful gourds and chartreuse vintage hobnail glass vase with white baby roses make fun centerpiece.


The pheasant figurine was found at a local consignment store for $12. I spray painted it gold – thank you Mr. Eddie Ross for the inspiration!

    So beautiful! I love, love, love the china. It's gorgeous. Very, very chic. I recently was trying to get rid of some of my large pile of tableware but this makes me want to collect some more! Great job.

    Your table is fabulous. I love that you spray painted that pheasant – looks expenseive, much more than what you paid!

    I love that quote – that is something to remember all year long.
    Happy Thanksgiving!
