Last year for Thanksgiving I wanted a clean white Thanksgiving tablescape. I added pops of burlap, gold, black and not much else. Click here to see it all.
This year I literally opted for the complete opposite and had the means to finally do it. In other words, I have spent years working on building my vintage set collections. I have always wanted a large set of Vintage Indiana Glasses in blue and amber. So at every Estate Sale or flea market I search for the glasses and collect them organically. I have also began a collection of vintage English dinner plates. These plates have taken me a little longer to collect organically, but so worth the wait. Lastly, brass candlesticks. I literally have been grabbing them when I find a deal.
So finally, after a few years I have enough glasses, plates and candle sticks to set a table for Thanksgiving 2015!
The setting process usually begins 1-2 weeks prior and finally is complete with fresh flowers a few days before.
