November is such a great month for tables, with all the lovely colors of fall. I like to set an everyday table for us to enjoy all month, this time featuring the two large pilgrim figures I inherited.
To begin, I wanted the table to be full of color, so I put the burgundy tablecloth down first, and topped it with my cornucopia and maple leaf quilted table topper.
I found four of these pumpkin plates at the thrift store recently and now was the perfect time to use them. I set them on our everyday white stoneware and brown chargers.
I love these pumpkin bowls, and set them on the table for salads, soup and cereal. Brown napkins are held with brown beaded golden napkin rings, also a thrift store find. If you missed the amazing story about them, see it here.
Everyday flatware and drink glasses are added to the settings.
The pilgrims are the focus of the centerpiece. The lady holds a bowl of vegetables.
Surrounding them are garlands of fall leaves.
The man holds a pumpkin. They both have baskets on their backs that I left empty this year.
Around the base are ceramic turkeys and crackle glass candle holders with unscented tea light candles.
I placed a couple of color corn cobs in the center too.
Although the table is set for four, only My Sweet Babboo and I will use it. If you are wondering where the individual salt and pepper shakers are, they are on the dining room table and I’ll show you a Thanksgiving tablescape soon.
Yes, I do actually use these dishes. Plus I love the festive feel that the table shows during November. I really enjoy giving each month its proper attention, and keeping Thanksgiving as a focus of November. I’ve been using the leaf motif ones for breakfast and lunch lately, see them on my November Breakfast post from 2016, and I also used them for an Autumn Tablescape in 2017.
This month is dedicated to Thanksgiving, and I am steadfastly refusing to rush the seasons! The Autumn season will continue until through Thanksgiving Day on this blog. Are you setting a pretty table this month?
