Pre- Thanksgiving Tablescape

Even though it isn't Thanksgiving Day, I like to give thanks everyday so I am using some Thanksgiving elements to make a tablescape for tonight's dinner.

The first layer is a runner that is white with black dots and black trim.
Also, I used the black iron stand with crystals to give height to the candle.

The place settings were layered with a white round straw placemat, silver charger, large black plate and a white salad plate because of the scalloped edge.

The small black plate with white dots is added to give a neutral palette for any accent color.

Since the table is black. it is hard to see that the white cloth napkin has a black ribbon edging.
The flatware is black with silver which gives it some bling.

The black crystal stemware keeps the palette neutral.

This is where any color can be used to accent.

Since it is close to Thanksgiving, the battery operated ORANGE candle 
with frosted fruit gives the centerpiece a punch of color.

The glittered pumpkin and more frosted fruit adds more sparkle.

Using the brightly colored foil turkey gives some whimsy.

A few falling leaves anchor the tablescape together.

Pulling all the elements together gives a simple but cheerful tablescape.

This setting could be used for Thanksgiving Day but I chose to use it as a Pre-Thanksgiving Dinner.
I am setting at least 12 Thanksgiving tables for an event this weekend.  I posted about it last year if you want to check it out click here.
I haven't had time to set my Thanksgiving table yet but I purchased a new turkey this year so come back for an introduction.

I'm Thankful for all of you that take time to read and
