A fun Thanksgiving for everyone

It was so fun making my turkey day table setting. I found cute turkey tureens at Homegoods a few weeks ago and I had this Le Jacquard Francaise tablecloth- called Chinese Market (in saffron colorway) so I used that as the base for the colors of orange, yellow, purple and gold.

I used my big pumpkin soup tureen for the floral centerpiece. I used some fall colored flowers from Publix and added a few small cabbage plants just took two them out of the pots and stuffed then in around all of the flowers- all the flowers were only 15.00 and then I used real tiny artichokes for the place card holders. The flowers are in a mug inside the tureen and then some are just around that mug to fill it out with the potted cabbages.
I like to stack plates so I used the tiny tureens atop a leaf plate and the napkin was part of the plate presentation. I scattered a few gold votive candles and a few small pumpkin tureens around the center piece for more interest and a few real white tiny pumpkins.

It wasn't pink but it was colorful for our traditional Thanksgiving day dinner. Lola, my Pink-In-Laws Yorkie joined us also. We were pretending she was at the table. Hope I gave you a few ideas.

Have a PINK day!
