Thanksgiving Tablescape

I always love pulling out this transferware for a Thanksgiving table.  I used the Thankful Book Page Leaves with the fruit and pitcher of hydrangeas for a centerpiece.

I don't arrange tables as place settings that often anymore.  I just find the combination of what I am placing on the table to be more fun to photograph.

What do you think?  Would you rather see a table with the true place settings?

I love the combination of table goodies! Of course, I love brown transferware and pewter, so this table sings to me! Gorgeous!

We often eat buffet style too when I have a crowd so that looks perfect. Beautiful tranferware.

very pretty indeed and just my style too. grab a plate , cup, silver and a napkin and serve yourself. I prefer this to formal settings and I think family and friends feel less stressed. thats always a good thing..

So gorgeous! This seems more inviting than a formal place setting and everyone feels free to grab and go. It's so beautiful - great job!

HI Sherry! How pretty and those are lovely dishes and the centerpiece is so nice. I love serving this way too. Makes it so much easier!
Be a sweetie,

I agree with you. Stacked dishes are much more interesting. All those layers are somehow better to photograph. Plus keeping the flatware straight is nerve wracking. your composition here is beautiful. I love brown transferware this time of year.

I have to agree with you. I love the bunched look. It looks so much more casual and less froo-froo. I love all of your elements.

Love the brown transfer ware. I like how you have the table. Who know you may start a new trend.

Beautiful! I love it both ways, when I have lots of guest I have to do it buffet style too. Gorgeous transfer ware set!

Hi Sherry,
Nothing makes me happier than a stack of lovely dishes. We seldom set the table formerly anymore. It's just easier with our large famuly to do buffet style. Thanksgiving is one exception that we set a formal table. Love your beautiful transferware and the thankful leaves are a great idea. Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup.
