A Season of Thanks: Thanksgiving Tablescape

My Thanksgiving tablescape is rich in colors of the season, natural elements, good deals, vintage pieces, and memorable keepsakes from the past.

I stumbled upon these boxwood letters at Hobby Lobby.

At first glance I was intrigued.

After a much closer second look, I was sold by the yellow and red beauty of the clearance price tag.

T-H-A-N-K-S !


Stop me if you’ve seen this one.

A quail, a turkey, a duck and a pheasant…

This group made their first guest appearance on my casual Christmas table,  A Dash Of Louisiana “Seasoning”: A Casual Christmas Tablescape.

Burlap sandbags continue to be my first choice for fall and Thanksgiving tablescapes.

Deep gold placemats and oatmeal goblets, heirloom vintage lace napkins, and gold resin acorns achieve the look and feel of the season.


The recipe for making the tablescape your own is simple-bring items of special meaning to the table.


Seasonal fruits and flowers along with vintage finds accentuate the casual, the simple and the elegant.


The sideboard display is a potpourri of locally grown and sold items.

The knock out roses are from a local nursery, the cotton stalks from local fields, the vegetables from local growers, and the salad plates from the local Goodwill.
