A Thanksgiving Tablescape

I did not host Thanksgiving at my house this year, but I still found time to put together a Thanksgiving tablescape anyway!
I'll be linking up with Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday and Cuisine Kathleen for Let's Dish!
I did my napkins in a fan fold, reminiscent of a turkey's tail fanned out!

Autumn centerpiece, complete with a velvet pumpkin..........

The cover.......

Pheasant S&P shakers and a silver domed butter dish......

Of course, we must use the good silver flatware!

I have really no Thanksgiving decorations, so I thought I should treat myself to a new tablecloth which has turkeys on it!  I bought this recently at Bed, Bath and Beyond. It's very beautiful!

Paisley figured placemats in  mustard/gold are perfect for a fall table.....

A trio of glassware at each place; water goblet, wine glass, and champagne flute.

I also bought two turkey votive holders at Bed, Bath and Beyond, along with the tablecloth. Notice I have "fake" votives in them. This is due to my cats, who like to go up on tables when I'm not in the room. I often put these battery operated candles in my candle holders for "effect". If I was hosting a real dinner, I would have put real candles in them before my guests arrived!

 Monogrammed individual spreaders go on the bread plate at each place setting.

Each place setting also gets an individual salter, or salt dip.

A crisp linen bread basket liner proclaims there are "HOT ROLLS" to be had.....

The red color of the napkins is perhaps unexpected, but works well for a fall table.........

Lights on!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Katie, Lovely tablescape! Love those placemats, and those salt cellars are so fun. I have some too! It looks like your dining room paint color is the same as mine. Cool! Gina
