Turkey on the Table

I bought this little guy a few years ago and every time I set him out in November I know he is going to feel the love. My Turkey on the Table is a little piece of decor that has an actual, important job – to display people & things we are grateful for. This little guy allows you write things that you are grateful for on his wings. When you run out of the pretty cardboard paper wings that come in the box you can just use your own construction paper. It’s become a great part of our Thanksgiving tradition.

Right now I’m thankful for this guy… Owen, you never disappoint.

I also bought a gratitude jar from Wisteria. Sadly, it is not as robust as my turkey as the glass broke in my storage closet. But, still an intentional place to write things and people you are grateful for.

My Thanksgiving Tablescape

I had so much fun decorating for Fall and Thanksgiving this  year. It’s like playing for me! Before you see my pictures you should know that my least favorite color EVER is orange. It’s just not my favorite. But, I do think an orange tree in the fall is amazing and orange pumpkins are organically beautiful. I could have done white pumpkins, but I thought that was getting a bit overplayed so I went old school.

What is such a blessing this year is that on Thanksgiving I will have my best friend, Rachel, here from Colorado. We have known each other since pre-school and have walked through every broken road and every happy event together. I am feeling so blessed to be sharing my Thanksgiving with her.

Back to my decor…

My table is a variety of orange hues and texture, including brass, copper, gold mercury, wood twigs, orangey everything, yellow wheat and off white candles and old books. I pulled pieces from all over my house and my decor closet where I keep a stash of fun stuff. The cute fabric pumpkins came from Target. Yeah, Target! They are doing good things over there.

Here’s my table scape.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So much fun. And I actually like the orange. Here is a little picture of my Holly Golightly Halloween costume complete with Cat. I’m pretty sure I’ll be the same thing next year 🙂
