Spode turkeys make Thanksgiving the most Thanksgiving of all

I have had many Thanksgiving tablescapes that Really loooked Thanksgiving ish! Tablecloths of all patterns that screamed “fall,” Beautiful orange and yellow and brown china. But when I found these plates, I almost fell over. (I DO like my plates, you know!)

I nearly keeled over when I found these Spode turkey plates in my local Goodwill — in pristine condition with not one fork or knife mark on them. I found them in March – a great time to shop for Thanksgiving by the way – and stashed them away in my china cabinet until the time was right.

So now that it’s time, I’m so excited to share my table.

The tablecloth is from Ralph Lauren and the crystal vase is Waterford Marquis.
