Joe and I still play well together, and I'm gonna enjoy it while it lasts ;o) This is his tablescape, and his dishes and flatware that he chose from Cabela's. We were at camp, the table was covered with leaves, and he suggested a tablescape that he would like to do. His leaf tablecloth was rather crunchy!
The centerpiece is my contribution to the table. Joe added branches to the table to coordinate with the antlers on the plates and bowls.
Dinner was Spaghetti and Chicken Parm Meatballs from the blog There's Always Thyme to Cook. The source is Martha Stewart Everyday Food, October 2012. Thank you Carol for posting this! We loved it.
Since Joe did a table, I decided to do a quick table with Thanksgiving in mind. I've been wanting to try adding blue to our Thanksgiving table, so I played around a little. My co-worker showed me a magazine, and I think it was called Country Sampler. They turned an acorn squash into a hurricane lamp. All you do is trim the bottom of the squash so it sits flat, make a hole in the center for the taper candle, and add your hurricane glass. I secured it by poking four cut paperclips into the squash. Works like a charm.
I like the addition of blue stemware and blue plates. What do you think? The acorn soup bowls are resting on some turkey plates that I got at Walmart last year.
The bronze looking chargers are from Walmart also.
As much as I like the look, I will stick with my traditional Thanksgiving colors :-) I host 16 family members for Thanksgiving, so this has been fun playing around with colors.
I added my favorite turkey plate to the table. It was passed down to me by my beloved grandmother.
Thank you for stopping by! I am joining Cuisine Kathleen for Let's Dish.
