Tablescape Thursday~ Ideas..ideas..ideas

Welcome to Tablescape Thursday hosted by the fab and fun Susan over at Between Naps on the Porch..go visit her for great ideas from others here in blogland. http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/

So..its just going to be us four chickens or should I say turkeys for Thanksgiving this year. I just cannot decide if I want to go formal or casual, breakfast room or dining room, lunch or dinner..flowers or pumpkins..lol. I am very undecided on everything except the menu. Thank the Lord at least I am on track with that! I searched around the web and found some great ideas to clutter and confuse my mind even more, but who knows I am sure to figure something out..right? Right? Ladies..help me out here..right? LOL..ok here we go.........
Love the dining room table as a buffet, I also used my dining room table as the buffet table for Easter this past year..so maybe not for Thanksgiving..but isn't it pretty?

Lots of gourds and pumpkins..so pretty!



Ok..love these guys..some might say they are just a rat, but they make me smile!


Simple yet elegant..really like this.




Love anything inspired by nature..


hmmm flowers..anytime a girl can get flowers its a good time..right?



I love placecards, but with it just being four of us..maybe not. Unless instead of a name perhaps a note reminding them why I am thankful..


Kinda like these glasses..I think I would rather it at the place settings. But a very cute idea. Held on with double sided tape.



Another casual setting..simple and pretty.



Where do you get burlap??? I want some!!!


Lets see, flowers~check, candles~check, nature~check, simple~check, inviting~check..ding ding ding..we may have a winner!!


Love the idea of photos of family and friends on the table..might have to use this also..so tune in next week for my reveal..same bat time..same bat channel..lol Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!!!

Just so lovely. I love to put down placecards even if it just the two of us. It makes the entire meal just a touch more special. I enjoy seeing the different looks.

I'll be back to see what you do for your Thanksgiving table. All of these are wonderful ideas. I don't have a plan as yet myself. Some of these have given me thought. ~ Sarah

I can't imagine using burlap for napkins, but you can find it in any fabric store...maybe they are made of linen? or a loose weave cotton? The candles are fabulous...great ideas!
