I thought I would show you all how I set my table for Thanksgiving this year First I used a big piece of burlap for a table cloth . I frayed the two ends and left it outside overnight because it actually has a really horrible smell to it.

I thought that even though my gold chargers actually look a little too formal that with all the other country elements they would fit in perfectly.
These white plates I got at a garage sale this year. One dollar for 10 dinner and 10 salad plates. I
told the girl it was too cheap and ended up giving her 3 dollars for the lot. Still a steal for me.

I had some small pumpkins that I had covered in floor polish so they will not rot inside the house.Orange for the guys and white for the girls. I wrote everyones name on the chalkboard tags I picked up in the summer.

I added some amber glasses that I also got in a garage sale this weekend 7 for 1dollar. No wonder I miss garage sailing when its over.

A few more pumpkins and I was done. I have decided to get a bigger table before Christmas as I am sick of this one that is too small. Ihave no room for a centerpiece or any food. So I am going to go find one this week. It has to be 8 ft. because the bench I have bought for the one side seating is 7 and 1/2 ft. long. Then I will have more room for everything and everyone.

Till next time, be good, Frances


  1. It looks great! How was the dinner? Is Jacks a good cook or what? You will have to get her set up on a blog too and the three of us can have Christmas decorating show downs!

  2. Well she showed up at 5 o'clock and I had almost everything done. She peeled the potatoes but it was very painfull for me to watch and I had to redo them anyway. She just laughed. and said I knew you would do it in answer to your question I would have to say NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
