Hi, Friends! Today I’m joining some friends to share our Thanksgiving tables! This fun Thanksgiving table tour is hosted by Tammy of Pink Peppermint Designs. My tablescape this year is not very fancy since I’m just hosting my immediate family and it will be pretty relaxed – which I prefer! Rolls may be tossed instead of passing a serving dish, but who cares!!! It will be a fun time with good food! *This post contains some affiliate links for your convenience.

If you are visiting here from 11 Magnolia Lane, welcome! Those girls know how to set a beautiful table! I just caught a sneak peak of their table setting yesterday and could not wait to visit their post today to see all of the details!
For my table, I decided to go with a table runner this year instead of a full tablecloth. I found this pretty gray and cream plaid flannel runner at Pier One, and I gave it an informal feel by crumpling it up a bit instead of laying it out flat. My main centerpiece is a long breadboard topped with an arrangement of magnolia leaves, pinecones, some twigs, Bosc pears, and pheasant feathers. The main structure was formed with two large magnolia leaf and pinecone stems that I purchased at Hobby Lobby. I put them end to end on top of the breadboard and then added additional pinecones, pheasant feathers, and the Bosc pears. When it’s time to serve my meal, I can just lift the breadboard off the table to have room for all of the food!
For each place setting, I used simple galvanized chargers with my white beaded dishes and these pretty teal salad plates that read: “Begin with giving thanks – Gratitude“. If you like these salad plates, you’ll want to come back here this coming Saturday for a giveaway! The pom pom edges of the off white napkins make them extra special! Those little details get me every time! These gray goblets from Target are so pretty. I love those tiny air bubbles in the blown glass! I used my favorite flatware from World Market. It works so well with the grays and galvanized chargers.
On top of each plate I placed a pheasant feather. I’ll probably tie a name tag to each one on Thanksgiving day. Scattered this set of gold mercury glass votive holders around the table, because I always like to have some candlelight on my table! I was planning to use silver mercury glass, but when I got out all of my votives, I decided these gold ones worked really well with the colors of my centerpiece. Who says you can’t use galvanized tin and gold mercury glass on the same table?
I did want to share the wreath that I put together on my corner cupboard. I saw the galvanized tin “gratitude” wreath at Hobby Lobby and immediately thought it would be perfect in my dining room since I was using the plates that also had the word “gratitude” on them! Then, I added this twig wreath from Hobby Lobby to use as a base for the galvanized piece.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Next, up on the Thanksgiving table tour is Carmel of Our Fifth House! I can’t wait to see her Thanksgiving table!
