A Special Friend's Thanksgiving Table

I think her fruit centerpiece is stunning!

My friend's table begins in the fall with pumpkins and as Thanksgiving approaches several turkeys are added. Later the table is set for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner with family.

Her faux bittersweet is so real looking you have to touch it up close to tell it is not real. She and I wish we could find some more as nice as this. She bought it years ago in Alaska!

Her pretty pilgrims added to the table celebrate the tradition of remembering America's first Thanksgiving.

I love the lace and embroidered platemats and grapevine napkin rings.

Beautiful vintage plates I believe belonged to her grandmother.

This is the buffet in the dining room.

Another variation. I like them both.

 Other vignettes around the house.

Don't those pies look good?

The kitchen bar is festive too!

This is the prettiest fall wreath I have ever seen.

I am thankful for my special friend. She always answers the phone with a lift in her voice and is glad to hear from me. A friend that lifts you up and supports you is a GREAT BLESSING! I appreciate her letting me share her home with you.

I wish all of you a very happy and blessed day on Thursday. May you have travel mercies if you are on the rode and enjoy and cherish the time with your families this Thanksgiving. My blessings are too numerous to count but I am grateful for all God has richly provided. An added blessing for me is that I will get to meet a fellow blogger many of you know, Lana Austin. Visit her special blog here and remember her as her husband is deployed.

  1. Hi Bonnie,

    Your friend's table is so very elegant and classic, as is her whole dining room! I'm very impressed. Her sterling pattern looks like mine. I love the oil painting over her buffet and the marvelous wreath on her door. Thanks for sharing these lovely photos! I hope you and your family have a very blessed Thanksgiving, Bonnie!



  2. Absolutely gorgeous! Your photos are wonderful too, Bonnie. I love the color of your friend's dining room. If not too much trouble, would you mind asking her what the paint brand and color is?
