Setting the Thanksgiving table with rich colors of Spode browns and oranges

I’m so happy to use my Spode “Woodland” Turkey china this year. I found it a year and half ago and I feel it is the “ultimate” in Thanksgiving dishes.

I also found a new Ralph Lauren tablecloth in burnt orange, and although it doesn’t match exactly, I like the contrast and the richness it brings.

I used my Mikasa wine and champagne glasses and some new-to-me Bombay Company palm tree brass candlesticks.

A floral centerpiece is a must for me, and I wanted to make my own floral arrangement. I was hoping to venture out to find some more unusual flowers like pods or birds of paradise, but I ended up being short on time and headed to my neighborhood Publix grocery store.  I used some eucalyptus and added red roses to the standard arrangement and added it to a crystal biscuit barrel.

It made for a beautiful table and my family and guests enjoyed it.

Hoping you also had a Happy Thanksgiving!! 🍁🦃🥂

  I used two different dinner plates – Spode “Woodlawn” Turkey, and William-Sonoma turkey plates from last year, which look very similar.  The salad plates are all Spode Woodland.

This last photo shows how a centerpiece can add so much drama to a table. Here, the tablecloth and china and candlesticks are pretty, but not half as pretty as when the centerpiece of flowers is added. That’s why flowers and centerpieces are so important.
