I then look at my linens, dishes, glasses and flatware to see what will work in my overall color scheme.
Next, I decide on a centerpiece. I love to use fresh produce from my grocery store. Once I decide what I want to use I order it from my produce man.
Last year, I decided to use all cream and green produce. Here is what I started with………
Here is how I put it all together…………….
The cut glass hurricane was perfect with its silver trim and the glass had wheat cut into the glass which I repeated that element by using it in my arrangement and it also appears around the rim of my plates.
I used white linen and natural linen napkins. You will notice the white are tucked under the plate and draping. The linen napkins are folded almost in a cornucopia shape. The sweet green glasses were a purchase from the Dollar store. They have fruit and grapes in a relief pattern.
I love using mirrors to reflect the candle light. I have two pieces of mirror each three feet long. This arrangement is almost six feet long on an eight foot table. I tend to like elaborate, over the top, or simple centerpieces. I chose elaborate for last years centerpiece.
I hope you have all enjoyed my post on Thanksgiving table settings, some of my own and some of images that I thought you all would enjoy seeing.
Next in line will be post on Christmas decorating and ideas. This is one of my favorite subjects. I am really looking forward to sharing ideas with you all.
