Romancing the Thanksgiving Table

If you long to set your Thanksgiving table in a very romantic, shabby chic
style, then head to your local thrift, consignment and antique shops.

Your will find the most charming of platters and pitchers.

Dessert plates and little sauce dishes.

Sweet and stylish stemware of all sizes and shapes.

Amazingly pretty but inexpensive silver serving pieces.

And wonderful serving dishes too.  Such soft and pretty patterns that
somehow all work together ~ so don't be afraid to mix and match.

For more romantic ideas to decorate your home lets go visit ~

  21. Susan your finds are sooo pretty and would look beautiful for a shabby chic Thanksgiving - what fun! I WISH we had as good thrift stores in my area...Let me tell you, something like what you are showing would be a once in a blue moon find around these parts. But I will admit I've found some pretty things over the I'll just keep looking.

    Thank you for the inspiration, and enjoy a stylish pink Saturday,

  22. Susan and Bentley, You found great treasures, as well as put them to good use. Bentley you remember to use a pretty dish too!



  23. Hello Susan, very nice to meet you. my name is Linda. I found you through Tablescapes By Diane. I am her blog angel, meaning I put her blog together and I fix it. Bentley is adorable. We love dogs too. We have 3 Schnauzers. You have some beautiful pieces. I am your newest follower. I hope you become one of mine. Enjoy the week-end...Linda

  24. When growing up, we had a table full of good eats and many blessings. However, never was the table set in this lovely fashion.

  25. Happy Pink Saturday Susan and Bentley Sweeties...
    I love your share today. How gorgeous and elegant your Thanksgiving table is going to look. All pinked out in beauty and love.

    I can't chose a favorite, it is all SO beautiful. You have such a knack for decor sweetie. I would SO love to sit and dine at your table. You would make one feel like a Queen. Thank you for taking me along today. I have so enjoyed my visit.

    Country hugs and much love, Sherry

  26. Simply gorgeous!

    very pretty

  28. Susan, your dishes are just beautiful. While there are beautiful chinas made today, somehow they just do not measure up to yesterdays!
    Wishing you a wonderful and happy Thanksgiving!

  29. Susan I adore your beautiful dishes! I found your link at Honey's Potpourri Party. Happy Pink Saturday too! I've enjoyed my visit to your beautiful blog and am now your newest follower from my new blog.

  30. I love mixing and matching palette's that blend! Just beautiful!

  31. I love your china! I mix 2 sets for my table ~ my wedding china from 1993 and my platinum trim antique American Limoges. And for dessert it is a bunch of mismatched bone china teacup saucers that have long ago lost their teacups. I love mismatching, it is soooo charming.

  32. Happy Pink Saturday and Thanksgiving! I love the old plates, cups, pitcher and what I call "dishes" but notice the comment above called them "china". They are wonderful ... make a great table setting any time! Enjoyed my visit, Thanks, Jenn

  33. Everything is just gorgeous! Just the sort of things I love!

    Your music is fantastic..I love it. Think I will just leave it on all day! :)

  34. Oh, how I love delicate, vintage china! So pretty! I hope you have a very Happy Thanksgiving! Hugs,


Oliver and I LOVE and read every comment.
