Gather Together Thanksgiving Country Table

The U.S. Thanksgiving holiday will be here in 2 weeks.  This year my table inspiration is a vintage tapestry table scarf with a primitive country print. It reminds me of Grandma Moses a little (American folk artist, 1860 – 1961). It has a very old-time feeling.  I found it for little money in May at the thrift store. I knew immediately it would make a great basis for my Thanksgiving table this year.




Around the same time I saw two large crocheted doilies with an orange edge.  I thought how wonderful they would look edging a plate.










Luckily the primitive country table tapestry has spots of orange and the doilies are a perfect complement.  I added my old brass candlesticks to the mix.






The little card Gather Together was on something I bought last week. It seemed so appropriate for my Thanksgiving table.









In August I found this country rooster pitcher at the thrift store and loved the colors.  At Aldi I bought 2 small bouquets of white roses and of yellow roses that are tinged with red.   I cut flowers and berries from my Florida firebush in the yard and began to fill up the pitcher.












I put firebush cuttings on both sides of the pitcher. I love the red berries that cover the bush in autumn.  The flowers are long and orange and red which gives the bush the name “firebush”.










My place settings are clearance china I bought last year in December.  Bright, cheerful pumpkins and flowers decorate the plate and saucer.









I used my gold cutlery and napkin ring holder. Fall is the perfect time for warm metals.

























I hope you enjoyed this table of gratitude.







Wishing you a blessed day!

  1. I love it! The tapestry table scarf is adorable and I love how you’ve worked through the colour scheme. It looks really welcoming but elegant too. x

    1. I’d love to see an exhibit of her work – I’ve only seen it on TV and in magazines. I do remember as a child a TV interview with her toward the end of her life. She looked ancient and sweet to me.

  2. Hi Carol, you put so much effort into your table settings, it has to be a treat to sit and enjoy a meal with you. The tapestry table scarf looks like someone had put hours of work into it. Well spotted and a nice buy!
