Tablescape: Thanksgiving in the Orchard

5 comments:


This is my first tablescape post: and what great timing with Thanksgiving!


  I must admit I don't usually spend tons of time setting the table these days.  I did, however  when I was a newly married/working girl/mom  (back in the day when we did it all)
I collected depression glass, vintage stoneware and bakelite cutlery just for the fun of the well dressed table. How I found time for anything is really a wonder!


My youngest son will be off to Vegas with his girlfriend over the Thanksgiving holiday,  so I am doing a lunch on Thursday just for two to enjoy.  My inspiration came from the wonderful tangerines just about ripe but beautiful with a touch of green on the skin.


So here is my table:


  It sits in a garden room, not quite finished.   Four Apple trees are the focus and in the center a fun little picnic table.  The spilt rail pillars will eventually support grape vines, 15 total.






Happy Thanksgiving to all of my blogging buddies, my friends and family...kelley

  3. Looks beautiful!!
    There are so many elements within this photo that I love.....the table & benches w/linen cushions/runners are a great touch.
    But the best part is the greenery/tangerines. We just started growing oranges and olive trees in our Texas garden....I look forward to pulling greenery like this for my table!
    Thanks for sharing....lovely!
