My Thanksgiving Table and Elastic Waist Pants!


Thanksgiving Table Ideas - love everything about this from the pumpkin place settings to the squirrel plates to those fabulous napkins!

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.

Here’s how I’m setting the table this year.

Now this is how to set a fall Thanksgiving table!  Love the rustic wood slabs, the pumpkin place settings and those napkins!

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!

Love this fall table - from the cow pitcher wheat centerpiece to the vintage glasses ...

More orange on these little pumpkin place settings will soon turn intoΒ Thankful Pumpkins.

Love the way this table is set for fall - the pumpkin place settings are cute!

Everyone looks better stuffing their faces …

I mean enjoying a leisurely meal by candlelight.

White pumpkins, pine cones, wheat and pops of orange create a gorgeous fall Thanksgiving table

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.

Love this rustic fall centerpiece with pinecones and that cute squirrel salt and pepper set!

Gold glasses, silverware and my cow pitcher add vintage charm.

  1. 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 πŸ™‚

    1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. 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
