Turkey Table

Nov 8, 2022 | Maggie Lane Designs, Tablescapes, Thanksgiving

Happy Wednesday everyone!  I’m hosting Thanksgiving this year and couldn’t wait to put my Turkey Table together to show you!  These dishes were bought a few years ago at Home Goods and I love them because they are nice and big for all the fixings!  It actually took me 3 years to get matching dinner and salad plates but I was patient and kept looking :-).  This table is all about fall colors in shades of blue, caramel, gold, burgundy, rust, orange, and green.  Never be afraid to mix patterns together as I did here.  As long as you stay with the same color palette, you will be fine.  I hope you enjoy the photos and videos I’ve included in the post.  Read on to find out where I found all of the table items and the method to my madness on how I put this table together.
On Thanksgiving Day I will offset the table with matching platters and bowls in the kitchen and everyone will just make a train starting with the appetizers all the way around to the turkey and sides!  I’ll add height by including stacked trays of desserts and my mother’s famous pumpkin pie!  
After I found the dinner plates, I went searching for a matching table cloth and found this one in the clearance section at Home Goods.  I love how the turkeys match and this put me on a mission to incorporate all of the colors on this table.  I also liked how the design is placed on the outside edge of the tablecloth with the middle kept plain white.
I decided to use a square and round placemat to incorporate the color and textured edges.  I like the organic look and feel it adds to the table.  I wanted to incorporate brushed metals and the pattern in the dishes allowed for that.  The napkins were bought at Home Goods and the metal flower napkin rings were bought at a boutique I worked at in Wildwood, Missouri called The Porch.  
Found Mr. Turkey at Home Goods and he serves two purposes.  One as a decorative piece and the other as a gravy boat!
This butter dish and baby turkey have been used so many times over the years.  Both were bought at Home Goods and the turkey holds my cranberry sauce every year.
I’ve added two different styles of drink ware on the table.  One a more casual look with a fun turkey pattern that I found at Kroger and the other these gorgeous wine glasses from TJMaxx!
Because I had a hard time finding matching dishes, I chose these leaf plates at TJMaxx for a fun look.  They are great for appetizers and desserts!
Since I was a kid, I’ve collected salt and pepper shakers.  I found them all unique and have some antique sets that are gorgeous.  I love to see a theme going on at the table and these pumpkin shakers are so fun for this time of year.  I found these at Home Goods.
These plastic pieces were in a pack of 100 at the Dollar General and give the table some sparkle.  They are in shapes of leaves, pumpkins, acorns, and I just sprinkled them around the table.  This is also why I like the table cloth having a white background and plain in the middle.  You would never see these little additions if the tablecloth had a pattern in it.

The dogs are always helping me decorate!

But Jake gets tired fast :-). 

I found these square placemats at TJMaxx and the round placemats at Home Goods.  I found the napkins at Home Goods in all the fall shades and decided to use them both.  This was a perfect opportunity to layer the long dinner napkin on the bottom and the dessert napkin on the top which picked up all the colors on the table.  The gold silverware was a gift from my parents years ago.  
On this table, you will see three different napkins…one cloth and two paper.  You can never have enough napkins when you have dinner guests and a big meal like Thanksgiving dinner!
Just another photo on how I incorporated all of the colors together.  I kept with the same color shades, tones, and patterns.  I created layers and added a large, high centerpiece in Roth iron to match the napkin holders which is how I tied the metal together.  The Roth iron basket was bought at Tuesday Mornings in Chesterfield, Missouri and then I filled it with artichokes from Three French Hens in Grover, Missouri.  I ordered the pumpkins from Amazon and just filled the basket.  I wanted to use dried hydrangeas as filler but never got to the store yet to do that.
I hope you enjoyed the table and can find some inspiration from this post for your table this year!  Love looking at tablescapes, check out more tables on my site HERE.
