Thanksgiving Woodland Themed Tablescape

Planning the Thanksgiving Day Table with a touch of Turquoise!  This is a new color for me to have in my cupboards!  I was inspired by Jann Olson from her Thanksgiving Pie Bake Off post as seen "here" to use this color.  

 Let's back up a few moments to where I began this tablescape.  This square platter was a find at Hobby Lobby a little while back.  
I couldn't get the camera to focus on the platter so I set this little pine cone piece on it so it would finally focus!  I thought the pumpkins in all corners was cute.  I suppose it could be used as a charger too.

The burnt orange chargers are also from HL…
The tablecloth was from Williams Sonoma last year.  Love the quality of it!  Often times you can find these things at their outlet well after they've sold out of the stores.  

 They have a faux finish to look like wood grain.

I brought out my Plymouth dishes from Williams Sonoma.  Last year I took these dishes down to share with our family gathering as seen "here".

 The turkey is sitting in the middle of a wreath that also came from Hobby Lobby.  Sorry for the lackluster pictures- I took them quickly while I was building the tablescape.
The wreath has an asymmetrical design but I felt that would be perfect for this woodland setting.  I stuck feathers at all four corners to add to the woodland theme.  

After I took this picture I decided it needed just a little more for the centerpiece.

 I added some flame-free tea lights and tucked them into the leaves around the turkey to add some glow.
Again this centerpiece is easy to pick up and remove for the dishes of food.


I had some leaves made of burlap in my stockpile so I placed one just under each dinner plate and used it to hold the napkin.  If you can see it well enough there is a touch of bluish green feathers on the turkey that go well with the new stemware.

The napkins are from Pier 1 this year



 I kept the pheasants on the candle holders since they add nicely to the woodland theme and the height adds some drama like candles would.  

I framed the sides of the centerpiece with the antlers from Pier 1 that I picked up a little while back.

The aquamarine stemware is from the Pioneer Woman at Walmart.  They are really a great value.  Thick and nicely made and her name is embossed on the bottom too.  The clear crystal stemware is from Williams Sonoma called Vintage.

Wishing you all a Blessed and Happy Thanksgiving!

  10. Hi Liz, once again your dressed a gorgeous table. So inviting for Thanksgiving and cozy. I love the glasses from Pioneer Woman and I have been thinking of getting a set to add to my aqua decor. Glad to hear they are made well. I read a review that said they broke easily so I have been on the fence with a purchase. Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Thanksgiving. xo

    1. Thank you Celesttina! These stemmed glasses are thick. There is a drinking glass that might be thinner but I'm not sure. I can't imagine these breaking easily. Happy Thanksgiving to you too!

  11. Beautiful table for Thanksgiving. I do love those turkey plates. The turkey looks so regal sitting there on your platter. It looks lovely with the leaves and votives. Love the addition of aqua. I have the sweet dessert compotes. Looks like a perfect table to celebrate Thanksgiving with loved ones.

  16. The deep turquoise in the chest of the turkey on your plates makes the turquoise goblets the absolute perfect choice for your table. Your candlelight shot is to be envied. Gorgeous! Happy Thanksgiving and thanks for inviting us for a peek. Cherry Kay

  17. Well, you sweet thing! Thanks for the shout out. The goblets are absolutely perfect with your plates! Turquoise is one of my favorite colors. I love it mixed with red as well. You may see that at Christmas. :) Warning, you may be tempted to buy the S&P and pitcher to match. I haven't yet. Trying to be strong! lol! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
    hugs,
    Jann

  19. What a pretty table. I love how you tucked those burlap leaves under the corner of your plates. Isn't it crazy how sometimes you can't get your camera to focus until you give it something to "focus" on! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

  20. How beautiful! I love the touch of turquoise - perfect with your lovely turkey plates. Like you, I don't have much of that color, but I'm warming up to it. The burlap leaves are so pretty. You've inspired me to look into making some. I hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful.
