About two months ago I found this topiary at the thrift store and knew I wanted to use it through the holidays.
I had two separate Thanksgiving dinners at our house this year, and, still recovering from a sprained ankle, decided to make it as simple as possible. So I (GASP) used paper plates.
The turkey platter was another thrift store find as was the fabric. I just folded it under and pressed the hem in. Simple.
The water goblets are antique and were passed on to me after my mother died. As a little girl I remember her throwing beautiful dinner parties and she ALWAYS used those water goblets.
The wine glasses I painted several years ago--surrounding vines with berries and pine cones--they always come out in the fall and are used through the winter.
For place cards I fashioned ATC's with each person's first initial on them, for them to take home..I just set them on the 'plate' for everyone to discover where they would sit.
So there's my little entry....check out Between Naps On The Porch for more beautiful tablescapes!!
I have to go to Physical Therapy two times a week for my ankle--I guess the ligaments and muscle is pretty messed up. The PT said it could take 3 Months for it to heal!! Yeegads! I would appreciate prayer for a speedier healing...
I've been slowwwly decorating for Christmas--Courtney's been a big help and has done a fabulous job in the family room as well as the Christmas Tree. I'll post pics soon. I'm thinking of participating in the holiday Hooked On Houses tour on Dec 15th.
Hope you all have a wonderful day!!
