Some Thanksgiving ideas

I was visiting the Better Homes and Gardens website, looking at their Thanksgiving tabletop ideas. Not that I really need one, because we will all be at my mom's house this year. But I thought it would be fun to see what ideas they had. :)

I love this table setting, everything about it is warm and cozy. I love the stemware, too~ it seems I've seen these glasses somewhere, but I can't remember where...




I really LOVE this next one! "Whimsical" was how they described it, and I can't argue with that! What a clever way to create a pumpkin! :)




And you can't go wrong with a simple arrangement of pumpkins, acorns, nuts and leaves...




I think this next idea is so sweet! I love its simplistic beauty.




This next arrangement is very colorful, and I love the mix of the cranberry and raspberry tones with the orange!





Another beautiful table setting...





And last but not least...




I am a little sad to say goodbye to fall this year, even though it does mean the beginning of the Christmas season! I have a few really good Thanksgiving recipes I will be posting in the next couple of days...I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! Thank goodness this week is a short one! :)

I'm with you~ fall is my all time FAV so it was a bummer to put it away. I'm just not that into Christmas this year for some reason. Can't put my finger on it. Hope the bug bites me soon!!!
These table settings are to die for!
Hope you have a great turkey day at your Mom's house!
Hugs to you~ Les

Beautiful pictures! I have a hard time decorating my kitchen and dining room tables. I want something big enough in the middle, but not too big so that you can't see each other across the table. These are some great ideas! I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Cute ideas! Too bad I won't be in my new place before Thanksgiving. But I am moving Dec 6, and I'm sure you'll have great Christmas ideas. I can't believe we're going to live less than 10 minutes from each other! I can't wait!!

These photos are great - I especially love that first one. It looks so warm, cozy, and informal, all at the same time. And the others are gorgeous. :)
Have a happy Thanksgiving!
