Thanksgiving By the Sea

For as long as I can remember we been celebrating Thanksgiving together in the family home on the banks of a Chesapeake Bay tributary.  The water has been the backdrop to many celebrations over the years, but none so treasured as Thanksgiving.  

Even though we are expecting about thirty people to join us this year, way more than I have turkey place settings, I couldn't resist setting up a little tablescape on the porch, just for fun. The porch is a favorite place for many of us to eat- it is usually warm to sit comfortably enough even in November.  You can tell how bright the sun shines by the glare in the photo.
I found these turkey plates years ago at TJ Maxx. I used them in my "Al Fresco Thanksgiving Tablescape" blog last year, along with the pumpkin napkins.

I am still enjoying this beautiful little pumpkin I found at a little farmer's market in early October.  It has such a great shape and beautiful color.  Perfect for this table.  I just love these turkey napkin holders from Pier One last year.  You first saw them in my Thanksgiving Dinner for Two post last November.  

This little Pilgrim girl and her friend below belong to my Mom.  I believe that we found these at TJ Maxx as well. The candleholders are actually glass from the Dollar Store that I spray- painted gold.  The golden candles are from Pier One. 

Once I finished my tablescape I got to enjoy the most beautiful part of the whole setting. 

Who wouldn't be thankful for this view? 

I wish you a beautiful and blessed Thanksgiving! 

Thanks for stopping by today!
