My 2012 Thanksgiving table

It is the day before Thanksgiving, and the main dining table is done except for the fresh white mums that will be added on Thursday.

I will be using just a few white mums scattered among the pumpkins, and leaves on the table.

This years table is done in soft hues of sage, linen, wheat, and umber.

The napkins have been folded with a pocket to hold the silverware, and name tags that are entwined in the fork tines.

I used grocery bag handles that were just the right height, and color to go with my table. The names were written with a chalk pen.

The umber glasses are vintage Fostoria goblets purchased at a thrift store a few years ago. They always look so pretty on linen tablecloth.

 I went for a simpler look this year. Sometimes less is more!

I will be tucking in a few white mums for a finishing touch.

The dessert table is ready to go, awaiting the pies
that are in the oven (thanks to my Mom!) 

We have the marble slabs out for the cheese, and fruit table.

Today is the cook-ahead-all-that-you-can day!!

I know you are all in the middle of your own prepping, so I would like to thank you for taking the time to read my blog on such a busy day like today!! 

I am so thankful for each, and every one of you. It is because of all of you that I continue to write this blog!!!

Wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving day, and may you and your loved ones continue to be blessed throughout the year!
