Hard to believe it's Thanksgiving time! The year has flown by so quickly & am so thankful that we'll be able to share the holiday w/family home again this yr. I can't set a table for all of us we do 'buffet style''s a bit of my Hall China, Autumn Leaf pattern that I collect...better known as 'Jewel Tea' dishes!

The glassware on the countertop island wall (most of my kids won't even touch them...LOL!) It's ok...I just fill 'em & the gr'kids will enjoy!

Across the way, here's the china:

...and added some napkins which I got thrift shopping a few yrs ago:

The table is ready ...Fall centerpc this runner (from TJMaxx) & scroll saw cut leafs my DH made for me ...

The turkey is still in the wire cloche on the buffet awaiting for Thanksgiving:

And this pretty candlelight w/Quail S&P shakers on the other end of the buffet:

The quail kind of blend in w/the multi-colored leather runner I bought last yr while on vacation in MN.

Happy Thanksgiving, from my home to yours, 'Holiday-ers!' Jeanne S.

I love the autumnal colors of your collection. Those napkins were a great serendipitous find, perfect with your china. You obviously have a very talented husband. Those leaves are wonderful. Best wishes for a special Thanksgiving.

Hope you and your family had a great day Jeanne! Everything looked beautiful as always. I think I decided to do a buffet next is tough getting all of the people and all of the food on one table....lots of passing around!
