Tablescape Thursday

Thank you Susan at Between Naps On The Porch for hosting the 46TH Tablescape Thursday.
I gathered a variety of items for setting the table for Thanksgiving dinner. Everything from a birch bark container to gold plated eating utensils. I bought the candlestick holders at a store called "Fine Antiques"...a wonderful antique shop in beautiful historic Lewiston, NY. The wine glasses were bought at an antique shop called "Europa" in picturesque Niagara On The Lake, Canada. Which by the way for those of you that have never visited this beautiful part of Canada and the USA... they are across the Niagara Gorge from each other. There is plenty to see and do in these two quaint historic towns.... forts, antiquing, restaurants, art, winery's, and beautiful scenery. I used a mix match of plates I found at garage sales and from Walmart. The birch bark container from "Ray Brook Frog" in Lake Placid, NY is filled with blooms of ornamental grasses from our garden. Gourds, leaves and berries are scattered on the table top for vibrant color. Table runners and napkins I sewed out of scrap fabric. Click on the images below for a closer look. ~amy

I love your red dining room and all of the accents on your table that compliment it. Beautiful goblets! I've never been to the Niagra area of NY, but I had ancestors who were pioneer settlers in that area. I'd love to go some day!

Happy Tablescape Thursday...

XO,

Sheila... great shield back chairs, by the way! :-)
