The table is set for tomorrow, the turkey is brining and I am about to make the pie crust with Lexi.  All is good.

We picked up Sebastian from college on Saturday and spent a few days together on the Oregon coast.  We are back home now and all my loves are under one roof again.  This makes this momma very happy.

I wanted to quickly share our tablescape for this year.  I had planned to do this before we left for Oregon but I had the tablecloth in the back of my car {f.o.r.e.v.e.r. I might add} with the rest of the dry cleaning and Mr. M in an attempt to help me when he was cleaning up the car before the road trip dropped everything off at the dry cleaner.

Well, normally this would be super sweet and helpful, but since I had procrastinated so long, I was simply going to spot iron the tablecloth for Thanksgiving.  Let me back-up a minute and explain that I clean the tablecloth myself and just have the cleaners steam it so it’s nice and crisp.  SO it was clean, just needed to be pressed.

Mr. M had to run down to the cleaner again and quickly explain that it only needed to be steamed AND I needed it back on Wednesday not Friday as they originally had told him, which brings me to today and why I couldn’t share the table earlier.  Yes, leave it to best laid plans… but in reality it’s my fault for not dropping off the tablecloth weeks ago when I placed it in my car.

Anyway…it will only be five of us for Thanksgiving this year.  The four of us plus my cousin.  The last few Thanksgivings have been intimate for us anyway so I am ok with it.

I set a rustic table using many of the same items I use every Thanksgiving holiday.  I used the Johnson Brothers turkey plates, my parent’s copper chargers, and our Waterford wedding crystal.

New this year are the rustic bark napkin rings and the flax napkins.  I got both of these off of Amazon and it was a fantastic deal for both.

The grapevine pumpkins at each place setting are also new and I used them on my {rustic Autumn mantel} early in the season.  Customarily I would have added a name card on the pumpkins at each place setting but since there’s only five of us I skipped this task.

The flatware is also new.  These are Laguiole knives and forks in mixed dark and light horn.  I absolute love them.  They were a gift from my boss who owns the store I work at, you can read about it here {working @ Whim House}.  These were samples she had for awhile and knew I would appreciate them since she never used them.  I am one lucky gal and I will be using them plenty.

I used the white pumpkins in the centerpiece, which you have seen here {a white pumpkin mantel} and here {apple cider mimosas}.  I used the main pumpkins in a dough bowl on a bed of dried eucalyptus from this tablescape {mercury glass Friendsgiving} with frosted pine cones and assorted nuts.

Yes, you will notice the glass sliding door its still shattered, which I explained here{a glitzy halloween tablescape}.  It has been relegated to back burner status until the new year when we can attend to it with the proper attention.

I know this Thanksgiving looks and feels very different than in years past and it might be difficult for some.  My thoughts are with all of you and wishing everyone a blessed Thanksgiving.

In other news, we are exactly a month away from Christmas!  😱.  I am ready for some FA LA LA LA LAs.
