~ Shades of Brown for Thanksgiving ~

I've been so busy this past week time got away from me. I put together this tablescape on the fly this morning. I knew I wanted to use the brown-toned dishes with the berries, wasn't sure about the centerpiece. I've seen a lot of pumpkins being used as centerpieces this year. You know me I have to be a tad different. :-))
Starting with the brown tablecloth I built from there. I chose the wooden brown leaf chargers for the base of the brown toned leaf edged plates.
I am over the top with anything having to do with wildlife. Mr. P thinks I'm a bit more than touched in the head. lol. I've had these deer for a while, normally they reside in another room in the house. Once the tablescape started to come together they seem to fit in perfectly.
You might remember the acorn filled vase from this post HERE. I've enjoyed using it for the Fall decor, and looking forward to adding Christmas decor next weekend.
Shades of brown mercury glass votives sparkle across the table.

The flatware are pieces Mother had when I was at home.
Gold bubbled stemware for your drink of choice. These were purchased a few years back at Big Lots for a song and a prayer. Don't you love a bargain?

With the table set, I'll put on a small turkey, spiral ham, candied sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, fried green beans, sweet corn and rolls. For dessert I'll bake a blackberry pie, apple pie and a strawberry pie.
From our home to yours we wish you the most wonderful Thanksgiving day ever. Hug your loved ones tell them you love them, life is so short make each moment count.
