Thanksgiving Tablescape

Hi everyone! Thanks for coming by~I thought it would be fun to do another outdoor autumn tablescape before the weather turns too cool. Although I hope to do one winter tablescape on my new old table this holiday season, I'll just have to bundle up! Today, however, was a beautiful 75 degree day, a little overcast, but that is the perfect ingredients for pictures. So I hope you get some ideas to use for your Thanksgiving gathering.
I've had this leaf and acorn dinnerware for years now, you might remember seeing it last year, it's a beautiful green and I love using it this time of year. The mug handles make fun napkin holders. Wouldn't it be great to serve soup in the mugs? Or of course just to have after dinner coffee.

Mary Carol Collection wicker chargers, I love these, if you don't have them, you should! :)

I have always loved the tradition on the cornucopia, this one looks great with the chargers, and I filled it with glittered pumpkins, gourds, berries and leaves. I don't know if you can tell, but I put the cornucopia on a serving tray first, just to add another layer and makes it easy to move if you need to.

The silverware in jars make it easy to grab your own set, especially if you serve buffet style like my mom always did.

Cue silverware photo shoot! :)

For a tablecloth, I just used burlap yardage, and a runner that matches the napkins

Some of my favorite glassware

Thanks so much for stopping by I hope you're inspired!

Let's take a closer Look! The crocheted dishclothes are made by Justin's Grandmother, thanks Colleen! I love the colors (she made some for me too!) and are 100% cotton and 100% useable!

Embossed blank notecards, perfect to write a note to friends and family. I could'nt decide whether you would like gold or silver, so I did a combination. Hand-stamped then heat embossed, the leaf is gold and the word gratitude is in silver. Set of 10, with envelopesHand-glittered nest and egg, if you've been over to my Etsy Shop, you've seen all the different ones I've been doing, this is in Antique Gold as well as the natural acorns.
