My Thanksgiving Table and Elastic Waist Pants!
I’ll be donning my elastic waist pants, whipping up a big Tom turkey and carbo loading up a storm this Thanksgiving.
Best part – family.
Second best part – (besides all those carbs) an excuse to set the table in a fun way.
Make sure to check out my house all decked out for fall.
Twenty five fabulous friends are sharing their Thanksgiving tables this week (five a day) thanks to Lindsay at The White Buffalo Styling Co. and you can hop from one blog to the next to see them all.
Make sure to check out the stop before me – Run to Radiance – to see what she whipped up.
Here’s how I’m setting the table this year.
Orange stripes on the table runner was just the pop of color this table needed and a couple of raised wooden slabs add just a little height so everyone can still see each other across the table!
More orange on these little pumpkin place settings will soon turn into Thankful Pumpkins.
Everyone looks better stuffing their faces …
I mean enjoying a leisurely meal by candlelight.
One of my first jobs was working in a Hallmark store where I squirreled away these salt and pepper shakers for many years until I could finally set them out on my own Thanksgiving table.
Gold glasses, silverware and my cow pitcher add vintage charm.
Here’s to food, family and elastic waistbands.
P.S. Don’t forget to print out my FREE vintage corkscrew printables – they make the perfect hostess gift!
Hop over to Simple Stylings next to see how she does Thanksgiving.

How fun and so pretty. Love the wheat and the cow pitcher, Gorgeous Tablescape.
Kelly, Your Thanksgiving table is exceptionally beautiful this year. I always love how you mix the old with the new. I always seem to overdo things a bit and it starts looking cluttered. Do you have any special family heirlooms or traditions that you use every year? Thanks for sharing you table 🙂
Laura – we started a fun tradition last year making Thankful Pumpkins. So we will use those pumpkin place settings and write everything we are thankful for this year. I have ours from last year – it will be fun to look back on them for years to come.
I read that people consume 4,500 calories at a Thanksgiving dinner. That’d explain why we need the elastic waist pants, LOL. I love your place settings!
What’s the source for the printed napkins? So whimsical!
Hi Marilyn – sources for everything is at the bottom of the post! Napkins from HomeGoods
Kelly, my mom has those salt shakers and we used them every Thanksgiving growing up! I love the little pumpkin name cards 🙂
Love that runner! And your entire tablescape is just spot-on. Elastic pants for sure! 😀
Oh I love this table….you can always incorporate fun with beauty!..
Wonderfully decorated,it is so you,i think. Love all your decorations.Have a great day.
I love this especially those plates and napkins! The pumpkins are adorable!!
Oh my goodness….I’m a not so secret lover of pinecones and I think you’re table runner is calling my name. Love!
Bravo, love all your awesome cute stuff on your table. Don’t know if your salt pepper shakers or your cow pitcher are my favorites but your table is so festive and comfortable, welcoming. I had to look around for few minutes to make sure I didn’t miss anything. Quite a spread, lucky dinner attendees. Hope your thanksgiving is best ever. Before we know it the day will be here. Happy week and season
Love the cow vase and those adorable little salt and pepper shakers! How cute! Bring on the elastic pants, so glad leggings are in style! 🙂
Beautiful! Love those plates!
I am with ya on those elastic waistbands, sister!
I love your table setting. I’m in love with your napkins and your salt and pepper shakers. The cow is a cute touch. And I really love the candles. Just the right lighting for the table. You did it again my lady. Now for the feast. Happy Thankgiving. Thank you for all the showing of these beautiful homes that I would die to live in. Hmmm maybe I can squeeze in a suitcase . Lol
Thanks so much Mary and wishing you a very happy Thanksgiving – pass the mashed potatoes!
