Thanksgiving Table

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. I love it because it's all about being thankful for what we have, and getting together with family and friends to share some good food. This year it's going to be the four of us, plus my parents.

Johnson Brothers Autumn Monarch china...

Crystal goblets are Shannon by Godinger -- a great deal at Sam's Club...

I'm using crystal salt cellars and silver salt spoons...

Here's my very first attempt at a floral centerpiece...

I put fresh cranberries in the vase also...
A candleholder I made with a fresh pie pumpkin...

Stop by and visit Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for lots of pretty tables.

Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving from Ma Maison!


  1. Tammy, what a gorgeous table! I love individual salt cellars-they add such a wonderful touch to a table. Gorgeous flowers, and I love the place cards.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

  2. Oh your tablescape turned out lovely.

    I love the elegance of it all.

  3. It looks beautiful, Tammy! And the centerpiece is lovely..I was thinking that even before you said it was your first attempt.
    You did a great job!
    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving..and thanks for your good thoughts!

  4. Tammy, I think you did a marvelous job with your table! Love your centerpiece and those cute pumpkins you turned into candle holders.

    And the crystal looks very similar to a Gorham pattern I have. It's some in a pattern I purchased when our wedding crystal was discontinued, but I will have to scoot over to Sam's here and see if they have the ones you found. I'd love to see if they would blend well with the other ones I have.

    Your table is so festive, and it looks like you are all set to have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Hope it's happy and that your Tablescape Thursday is, too!

  15. My first visit to you site and it was delightful. Your Thanksgiving table is beautiful. I adore brown transfer ware and yours is perfect for the holiday. You did a wonderful flower arrangement and I really like how you used that great mirror for a pedestal for the flowers. Layering like this always adds such interest. ~jermaine~
