Happy Thanksgiving

There is always much to be thankful for at this time of year – family and friends, health, and this year especially, house and home! I am always happy to be at home for the holidays and as usual am hosting Thanksgiving dinner.

Setting the table for Thanksgiving

One of my favorite aspects of the holiday is setting the table and since, this year, we are a mini group of six, I thought something a tad less formal would be appropriate. I decided I wanted to bring in a bit of black and remembered I had these large buffalo plaid napkins.

Happy Thanksgiving from my home to yours

Black, amber, gold and wood with a mix of textures and materials hit the note I was looking for. And I never realized I had a predilection for scalloped edges but it worked in my favor here. The belle of the ball, however, is the gorgeous floral arrangement that friend Christine Keane created for me.

Elegant yet lush, it brings it all together with a casual rustic chic. So from my house to yours, wishing you all a very happy Thanksgiving.

For those interested, a quick source list: Mottahedeh Festival charger, Barbara Eigen plates (not sure still available), Mottahedeh Sacred Bird and Butterfly salad/dessert plate. The Mottahedeh as well as the rattan placemats can be found locally at Hoaglands in Greenwich.

  1. Stacey,
    I really think we need a blog book of place settings – your table is certainly “cover” material.
    Funny, my homespun napkins have black thread running through….please pop over and help yourself to seconds.
    Wishing you and your family a wonderful Thanksgiving.
    So delighted to have you, your daily posts to educate, inspire and elevate!
    Up early to chop, chop, chop!

  2. Hi Stacey,
    It is a gorgeous table. Those dishes are gorgeous-Mottahedeh pieces are wonderful, especially the Chinese porcelain version. Wishing you a wonderful day filled with love. Thank you for all of the wonderful posts regarding the East Coast style beat.
