My Thanksgiving table

Without a doubt, I like tablescapes, especially elegant ones. For Thanksgiving, I enjoy gathering something from the garden and setting the rustic, earthy, natural, organic yet elegant table. Here, I used eucalyptus, proteas, and nandina berries as the background runner for the table. I dotted the entire table with my fall harvest from the orchard, persimmons and pomegranates.  I anchored the table with a Cinderella pumpkin in the middle. My  denby china is picking up pink hues from the pumpkin. Pewter chargers, silver swan salt and pepper shakers, and paisley designed napkins give a bit of an Indian vibe to the all-American holiday.

Small iron bird baths are filled with dried jujubes, another fall harvest from the orchard

Please check out my recipe for Turmeric-Kale mashed potatoes in my previous post.

Wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. I LOVE YOUR THANKSGIVING TABLE-super gorgeous! I personally kinda did the same thing with the pumpkin not too long ago. I made a succulent arrangement for the office at my kid's school. I gathered bunch of greeneries/succulent from my garden, hot glued them (and moss) on top of the pumpkin (I didn't have to carve the already beautiful pumpkin)...got a lot of encouraging compliments from the arrangement ;-).

  2. Happy Thanksgiving! Such a beautiful table... love the persimmons and pomegranates!!!
