Thanksgiving Table

If you're like me, you're running full speed ahead with preparations for Thanksgiving tomorrow.  The turkey is in the brine, I've been cleaning like a mad woman, there are pies to bake and trying to get the table set up. Tomorrow will be even crazier!  Since it's really gray here today, the lighting is horrible for me to get a decent overall shot of my table.  Here are a few close ups that will give you an idea of how it's coming along.  I purchased two large bouquets of rose hips at Whole Foods, cut the stems down and created a beautiful centerpiece in one of my silver bowls.  The burnt orange color is spectacular!  Yes, I also happen to like unpolished silver.  I placed a glass bowl inside the silver one, used a block of floral foam, inserted the stems and voila... a lovely centerpiece.

 For the place settings, I folded my hemstitch linen napkins to create a pocket for the cards that I purchased at Paper-Source.  A simple sprig of fresh rosemary and a sprig of rose hip adds a little color to each place setting.

OK, it's back to prep work for me!

Wishing each and every one of you a very Happy Thanksgiving!
