Fall Tablescape




A trial Thanksgiving Day Tablescape to share today....




Here's how the dishes stack up...


Spode Copeland Buttercup

Depression glass.... These were a super bargain! They are the very rare Blue Royal Lace pattern. They are normally about $12-$20 each. I got 6 for $12! (shock and awe)
I think they are gorgous!


Johnson Bros. Turkey plates...



My Burlap Tablecloth is perfect for this Thanksgiving table.

Many more lovely tables at Between Naps On The Porch.
Be sure you stop by.

Oh I love the table. All of the dishes are stunning. I have't ever seen the blue depression glass. They are just gorgeous. What a lucky and perfect find. Your tablecloth and the center placemat are just the right linens for this table. The jar holder with the pretty flowers is so lovely. I think your table is gorgeous. Hugs, Marty

So Pretty! Thanks for sharing. I need to decide what to do this Thanksgiving - usually do a buffet style dinner & probably will do the same this year due to space - family is growing. That is OK - we are all together and that is what counts.
