A Tale of Two Tables

It was the best of tables. 
It was the worst of tables......

Just teasing!

I thought that I would share my thanksgiving tables today.
Maybe it will inspire. As you can see, nothing formal. Just a 
little fun and fancy. 

We are having 10 for dinner. 
Sadly, we don't have a table for 10. 
So we will have to do 4 at one table and 
6 at the other.

It's not optimal, but it works.

This is the table for 4 (obvs). 
I used the buffalo check napkins that I got from 
the dollar spot at Target. I love them so much that
I bought enough for 16 plus pillows and tea towels.
Paired with the orange and brown they look so country.

This is the table for 6 (duh).
I wanted to do something totally different this year 
with the colors and I really like how it turned out.

Shades of amber, teal and beige.

There's those white pumpkins.

The centerpieces for both tables were purchased at Hobby Lobby.
All of the fall stuff was 80% off.
They are just simple silk flowers and stalks.

I filled in with the white pumpkins. 

Most everything is set. 
House is clean
Veggies are all prepped and chopped

Tomorrow I will put the turkey in at about 9:00
Then work on the rest

What's on the menu:

with stuffing and gravy
Cranberry sauce
Au Gratin potatoes
Sweet potatoes
Broccoli casserole
Corn Succotash (copy cat Cheesecake Factory recipe)
Dinner rolls

Pumpkin Pie
Pecan Oatmeal Pie
Cherry Pie

What's on your menu? 

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Oh Liz, both of your tables are fabulous and I love your menu, it all sounds so good. I baked all day today - pumpkin pie, pecan pie, chocolate pie, and pumpkin bread. My daughter is doing the dinner I am really hungry already. Happy Thanksgiving.
