A Pretty Place to Sit: Place Settings

Number one: My blog needs a major over haul on it's look. I know, I know it's bad. Every time I come here (which is not as often as I wish, which might have something to do with how ugly it is...) I am disappointed in the way it looks (to say the least). It needs a face lift. Who am I kidding, it needs a nose job, a little botox and some air brushing. It needs an entire re-do!

Number two (the real reason for the post): THANKSGIVING!!! Fall, Autumn, whatever you want to call it, it always puts me in a good mood. (despite the ugly blog!) I get to change the arrangements hanging on my front door, my fireplace mantel gets a little color, and my house reaks of cinnamon, sugar, and pumpkin bread. Oh, and I start thinking of Thanksgiving.

We all know food usually takes the spotlight on this wonderful holiday, but we can't forget the supporting characters. Decorations, beautiful serving dishes, and place settings. I rounded up a bunch of items around my house and filled in the blanks with a few purchased items. I came up with a few ideas/ color schemes to help make a beatiful spread.

*Disclaimer: I may or may not have set my settings correctly. I didn't take the time to think about it before I started snapping pictures. It's not like my house is fine dining or anything. Right?*

I call this one "Fields of Gold"

I found the dried berry bunch at a farmers market last fall. The place card is a Martha Stewart template.

Up Next: "Autumn Leaves"

I found the square plate at Big Lots for $2, and the glass leaf shaped dish at Michaels for $1.

"Gobble Gobble"

One of the simplest settings but definetle showcases the main dude of the day! I got him at World Market for $4. I just love 'em.


And finally: "Leftovers"

This one is a little bit of everything. What makes it work is the color combo I think.

Hope you all have a wonderful Holiday and a beautiful table spread!
