The Thankful Table

DSC_0016
Today I’m sharing my Autumn tablescape with you. It’s the table in my kitchen. It’s not yet Thanksgiving, but I like to think that any month, especially November, is a time to be Thankful! Not just the one day we celebrate. I can’t think of a better way to show it than a lovely Autumn tablescape? It’s at the table we should be most Thankful. We are so blessed to have a table to sit at and enjoy the food and family we love so much! I call it the “Family Table”! It’s where we are nourished and where we feel most loved. It’s a bonding place. It’s a place to get to know each other better. The family meal is a wonderful experience and should be shared as much as it could.

I dressed my table with lovely colors of Autumn. Ivory dinner plates are set on top of green charger plates. Leaf plates in brown, green and burgundy are placed on them. Soup bowls in ivory break up the color combination, but tie into the dinner plates at the bottom.

Colorful napkins are folded into squares and pushed into the soup bowls for a flower like appearance.

I filled cute small leaf bowls with popcorn. The family can munch on the popcorn before the meal, or after, which ever they please. I think popcorn symbolizes Autumn nicely!

Ceramic pumpkins add to the design on the table as well as the tea lights in the mason jars. I think tables should have a warm glow,especially at night! The flower box I posted on awhile ago still sit in the middle of my table. Click here to see my “Fall Flower Box”.

    • Thank you Bev for your lovely comments! The centerpiece was a post I did in August. I was able to take the flower box home from my Niece’s wedding. I changed it three times already and posting on each of them. I’ll be changing it again soon for Christmas! Can’t wait!
      Have a lovely week!

  1. LuAnn, I so agree that families should take every opportunity to have sit-down meals. I’m so grateful that we always had breakfast and dinner at a set table when my children were growing up…wonderful memories I’ll cherish forever. When I was growing up we always shared meals, and it was a given that every Sunday our entire clan would be seated in my Grand-pop and Grandmom’s large dining room. Those memories are a lovely part of my youth that I remember often. Your table looks beautiful!

    • Thanks Bobbi! I had the same as you when I was growing up…family meals every night and Sunday afternoon dinners over my Grandparents home. It was really exciting when the cousins were over too! They had a very large kitchen and set up a huge table for everyone to sit at. When they pasted away my parents did the same until my Dad died. Now it’s our turn to keep it going. Most of my family is grown too, but still home with us for now anyway. Wonderful times and memories. I’m glad to hear from you today!
