The flatware is NOT TS and I made the fruit topiary in ceramics back in the 70's!

Everything else is TS.

I found 3 of these plates:

candy...I am lovin' the yellow charger plate! & those 3 plates you found look great w/yellow! My eye was drawn immediately to the fruit topiary & you made it @ceramics yrs ago...still a showcase pc!!! Love the richness of the linens ... & the colors picked up in the leaf plates. Very lovely!! Amber glassware is gorgeous! & those cute 'turkey' napkin rings ...a cute touch! Very elegant table...to 'Give Thanks!' Jeanne S.

Another wonderful table, Candy
I remember those topiarys too.
This one is perfect for todays table.
The colors you chose are stunnig.
The yellow cahrgers accent your plates perfectly.
I'll bet you will find more plates on one of your thriftimg excurions.

Candy, I'm lovin' the rust and yellow combo too. What neat plates you found
for Thanksgiving. The little cornucopia's are so cute. The pearl colors you
painted your fruit topiary... so pretty. I would of never thought to add a rose
wreath but it looks wonderful. Adding the peralized candle holders too.Ahh

Enjoyed your table. It won't be long before we sit down and Give Thanks
with a greatful heart.

Very nice, Candy. The colors just seem to melt together. I'm with everyone concerning your chargers. They are quite nice - not a blinding, sun's-in-your-eyes kind of yellow. Just right for the fall.
Your Give Thanks plate is a knock-out.

Candy I LOVE this table. Everything about it - from the
lovely dishes (great finds) your pretty yellow charger
plates..amber glassware and lovely CP!
I like how you nestled the fork into the napkin and the leaf plates w/fork to the side.
Also I like the little cornucopias are ea place setting and
how you arranged the flowers around your Topiary.
I remember it too from Ceramic Classes. Like they say -
everything 'old is new again' - it fits in perfectly with
this setting.
Great table.

As always, very pretty. I love the tiny cornucopias.

Thanks everybody.
The chargers are by Espana, and are actually more of a mustard gold color.
I used the rose candle ring because the colors in it were perfect to go with the colors I was using on the table.
I felt like the cornucopias needed something, but I didn't have any tiny fruit to put in them. : (
I kept some of my old ceramic pieces, but not the pheasant that would have been perfect for my fall decorating!!LOL
I did see one from the same mold in a thrift store, but it wasn't painted very well and I have since bought the 2 that I use on my mantle, so didn't really need it anymore.
I also see many other items in thrift stores that are identical to things I currently own!! :=o
The Give Thanks plate has a Cracker Barrel logo on the back.
Can't believe Thanksgiving is less than 2 weeks away!

TTFN,
Candy

Beautiful table, Candy. (and I really am envious of your wonderful sunroom, what a great spot for decorating as well as sitting and reading!)

So the flatware is NOT from TS. LOL. That's pretty rare for Mz Thrifty Queen. But it is gorgeous! Love it and would buy it for sure if I did tables like you.

hugs, Karen
