Happy Thanksgiving to all our American friends and neighbors!!  C’mon in and help yourself to something from our appetizer platter!  The table is set and the turkey in the oven is making the house smell divine!!

I’m sharing with you today, some photos of our Thanksgiving tablescape.  And also the little crafty/scrappy effort I made for place setting name tags.  Because I have all the supplies and someone would be disappointed if I didn’t.  Make that effort.  Even if the only disappointed person is me!

I don’t have a grey table cloth to cover both our regular dinning room table plus the folding table Mr B has jimmied to fit with the regular table like its all one huge long table, so I covered everything with several white cloths and then angled the grey table cloth to fit end to end and tucked the sides up underneath the cloths.

Yes, I married copper accents with china that has a gold edge AND silver tableware and goblets.  I don’t care what anyone says.  I like it and I’m gonna do it.

So these name tags.  As much as I wish I could say I printed them (and that IS my goal to one day be able to do) I stamped these.  With individual alphabet stamps.  That Lori is looking into getting in the store.  SUCH a fun and easy way to look way more Pinteresty than you actually are.

I tucked a single gingersnap cookie into each little paper bag (and I used up all I had so, Lori, I’ma need more please!) folded over the top and tied the tag to the bag with some twine.  Love how the buttery cookie makes grease marks on the bag!  These bags and these would also be super cute!

I found some copper twinkle lights at Kirkland, a home decor store down here.  They’re battery operated so no need for cords dangling off the table.

I decided against the fall colored floral arrangements I’ve seen everywhere this year, and decided to just cut a variety of greenery and put them in the chalk painted mason jars I did awhile back.  I love the simple color scheme of grey, white, copper and green.  So fresh and on point!

And finally the pie.  Always pumpkin.  I have no need to complicate my taste buds with pecan or apple options and so my guests have to be happy with pumpkin as well.  I am learning a new skill of cake decorating so the spun sugar accent was a late night youtube lesson that I thought would go fine on the pie.  I think I’ve just started a new tradition in our house!

I hope you’re having a spectacular day where ever you are.  And if it includes a bite of turkey, even better!!

    I love love love this post !! I really like the non traditional colour scheme I think it is perfect ! The appetizer tray is really cool.  I just keep looking at the photos over and over again . . . I will skip the pumpkin pie but your spun sugar is pretty amazing !!  What did you mold it around ?

    Thanks Kim!  I drizzled the melted sugar over the back of a metal ladle and it just pops off so easily!
