Thanksgiving Turkey Table

Whew, how did November come, and now it is mid-November?  I have always wanted to take a picture of my Thanksgiving table with the turkey on the table, and it finally happened!  I love setting a Thanksgiving table, the fall colors are just so warm and inviting.

The star of the table, of course, are these turkey plates by Myott.  I love them!  I bought some, and my sister Jacqueline gave me some, so I have salad and dinner plates for twelve.

I bought these compote dishes from a Christmas Tree store in Virginia.  I think they were thirty-nine cents!  The napkin holders add some bling; I won them from Kathleen in my early days of blogging.  I tucked a fall pick in for extra color.

Just a side view of the table. The chargers were on discount at Wal-Mart many years ago, but I think they still have them.

This turkey server was on our Thanksgiving table when I was young.  It is perfect for holding stuffing.

Just a view through a bubbly glass.

Just one more view of the napkin.

And the moment I have been waiting for....the turkey.  Okay, so the turkey doesn't look like Southern Living, but I love finally getting a shot of my turkey with my table.  Usually, we just dive in and eat before I can get photos taken. 

I hope you are able to share time with your loved ones this Thanksgiving!

The plates are so great. I was looking for mine and can't find them. I am missing awhile box of Thanksgiving things - which I discovered by looking at some of my past tables. Probably hiding behind Christmas.
I forgot about that beautiful turkey serving bowl. Wouldn't Mother have loved all of the beautiful dishes and serving ware we have today? Glad you got a picture of your turkey. I agree - it is usually carved in the kitchen and no photos!

Pretty table! Love how you did the napkins on the compotes. The turkey looks delicious. I know what you mean about getting a picture of it. By the time you're able to cut it up all the other food is ready and waiting and everyone is hungry! Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Good to find you here. I've been away from blog world for a while, and it's good to be back. The Myott Turkey plates are charming, and I also won the beaded napkin rings from Kathleen. I've used them quite often. Adding the berry pick to them is a great idea. I love that you got the picture of that turkey...indeed quite a feat! Thanks for inviting us for a peek. Cherry Kay

Joni, I love your Myott dishes and your cute napkin rings. Your mother's turkey is nice too.

Have a great Thanksgiving. We've been around a long time haven't we?
