Thanksgiving Table

Hello Friends!

How was your weekend? 
Ours was BUSY! Went to the city to visit our son and roamed around the zoo the whole day, followed by a day of shopping for some essentials the next day, then attended our groups' sponsored Quiz bee before heading back home!

But before we left, I had a fun time trying out my decor for this coming Thanksgiving!

Simple Thanksgiving Centerpiece
I was inspired when I saw these gorgeous decorative Kale at Walmart a couple of weeks ago and knew then that I will be using them for Thanksgiving.

Follow me on IG HERE

I added the white pumpkins from the Living room Halloween Decor (which is all gone by now btw),
and added some of my Brass candlesticks and the 2 brass partridges I scored at the Antique Mall a month ago.

I really lobe the mix of purples and greens

I used my Jonathan Adler Plates as chargers and used my vintage Fire King set for my setting with my vintage gold flatware
The chalkboard place mat and Place cards are from Target I scored a couples of months back.
The napkins are vintage VERA NEUMANN.

You may notice the change on the back of this picture too
Since Christmas is around the corner, I moved my sofa table from the living room and Federal Mirror from the Breakfast area into this room.

I love ho the mirror reflects the Dining room well
I just placed my glass canisters with left over candies and goodies from Halloween and just added more of the white pumpkins that used to be in the Living room.

The buffet decor
The Buffet Cabinet just had the same elements as the Dining table - kale and brass!

I just love the fresh vibe and colors these beauties bring to my home
Did you notice my new lamps?

It's the Franklin Lamp Base from TARGET

I love the aged brass and warm walnut look of this large lamp and thought it would be perfect for this cold season.

My table runner was from Target as well, the coasters were from Dwell Studio
Decorating for Thanksgiving did not stop there. 
I also did some purging and cleaning here...

Nice and orderly, ready for the party season!

My RH French Casement Double cabinet is now all neat
I really LOVE this cabinet but still need to put in some cabinet lighting on this baby.

All we need now is the turkey!

There you have it folks, our early Thanksgiving Dinner Table.
How about you, how are you preparing for this special holiday?

Have a Great Week !
