Our Thanksgiving Day Table

I love seeing the images my brother, Nathan, captures at our family events. Here are a few of my favorites from the dining room.

I bought white roses from Fresh market for the dining room table. They looked beautiful, but branches pulled from the yard added vivid color to side tables and our holiday buffet.

Ornament frames made sweet favors for the grateful hearts that gathered around our Thanksgiving table this year. I used them as place markers on the dining room table. In the photo above, an extra ornament hugs a lamp on a side table.

Our Thanksgiving Day recipes are still to come!

Love the pictures of the tables! Amazing pictures. Someone knows how to entertain.

I am having a giveaway on my blog of an antique doll quilt! One week left for the drawing! Thought you would like to know and pass on the word!

Thanks, Stephanie

What a beautiful table. I, too, have Noritake Chandon china. It is so classic and antique feeling. Thanks for the inspiration.

Melissa; I so enjoyed your family photos in the last post. Seeing the one of your parents with all their grandchildren gave my heart a little pang, missing our grandbabes so much right about now since my husband's work transfer. How lovely your family is, all of them! :)

It's always a pleasure to read your blog, eye candy to me with beautiful and uplifting serenity oozing in every wonderful photo. Thank you for blessing me today. <3
