Give Thanks and Gather
Give thanks and gather might seem an odd title for this year’s Thanksgiving tablescape from me, since we know we should not be gathering in large numbers. However, I hope none of you are alone this coming Thanksgiving and know that even if there are only two of you at your table, you have gathered and you can give thanks.

These gorgeous fall leaf placemats and goblets were a discovery from Pier 1 a few years ago. It is easy to see why these were my inspiration for this year’s Thanksgiving tablescape. I know these are not traditional Thanksgiving colors, but I have done those plenty of times, too.
Placemats were set on a white vintage tablecloth and topped with my plate stack. My traditional china, Lenox Lace Point is the salad plate. Pink and gray plates complement the pink and gray from the china. Pink plates with a ribbon of fruits reminds me of the harvest, the traditional sharing of the Thanksgiving meal. These are labeled Franco Giorgi by Quadrifoglio. I had no idea how happy I would be thirty years later that I picked up a dozen of these in the outlets in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The large gray dinner plates are from Ikea and made in Portugal.
Although the colors are not traditional, with a vintage white linen tablecloth gives the table a traditional feel. Napkins are layered gray and pink tucked into an acorn and pumpkin napkin ring.
A centerpiece of faux flowers, burgundy fall leaves and a “GATHER” sign is all that is needed since food will take center stage on Thanksgiving. Elegant gray wine glasses completed the stemware. A pair of bunches of wheat flanked the ends of the table, an additional nod to the harvest.
I hope this Thanksgiving you gather together with a few of those closest to you, give thanks and enjoy the company.
