American Thanksgiving

The table is set, the water is poured... just waiting for the turkey and fixings.  Embroidered and appliqued napkins from long, long ago, gold accents, candles, and chargers.

A golden turkey and an empty pie shell tell the tale of a delicious meal yet to come.

      A Beautiful Plate of Thanksgiving Plenty.

 Hand-made place cards add to the festive feel of the table settings.  Fall leaves, pumpkin themed ribbon, leaf cut-outs at the bottom and the simple phrase, "Give Thanks" with the name below.
 Homemade cranberry sauce, with some cinnamon and orange flavors.


                                                                                A table setting from around the world... porcelain bread and butter plates from England, France & Germany, gold-rimmed glasses from the USA, dinner plates from Korea, porcelain salt and pepper shakers from Chile, glass bowl & pressed glass dish for the cranberry sauce from the USA, gold-flecked flatware from China, crystal hot toddy glass from Scotland, wine from Australia.  Table and chairs custom-made in the USA.
