My Thanksgiving Table

































 Taking photos of my Dining Room and Thanksgiving Table was more challenging than I thought.  I had to really edit things in order to show off everything to it's best advantage. 

  I fully appreciate what stylists and photographers go through to get one great shot!  It's not easy... and speaking of photo shoots you can imagine my surprise when I came to the Home & Garden section of The San Francisco Chronicle this weekend and saw my ikat napkins featured on their holiday table!!



Have you set your table yet?
I'd love to see it!

It looks just marvelous and how fun to see your napkins! I am not setting a table this year as we are going out of town and eating out. I'm actually kind of excited, no leftovers but that's okay. I'm intrigued by the sculputure(?) in the corner of your room by the window - looks like sticks of some sort, very cool.

Your dining room is gorgeous and your table is stunning. I love your china, crystal and all of your accessories. Perfect. God Bless and Happy Thanksgiving. Hugs, Marty

It looks beautiful. Love the little pheasants. We have the same chandelier or at least very similar ones. Mine hangs in my living room.

Have a great Turkey Day!

What a GORGEOUS table. You do have some serious talent! You did an amazing job with the photos, too. I know how hard that is.

I can't believe Sea of Shoes house was on Rue this am. That's what I get for not reading everything asap ;-/ I've been waiting for "My Time" later tonight to devour the whole issue. Oh well.

Beach House Living said...

No. It is waiting for you. I really see what a makeover my world needs after viewing yours.

Terri, it is so nice to see more of your hidden talents. Your table looks so inviting. You are right it is so hard to get a good photo but I think you did a wonderful job. I am so proud of you. The crystal just sparkles and I love all the use of color. Love you,Kathysue

Therese
A beautiful setting to behold, and the judges give you straight 10's No details left un-done!
I think your diining table, and room should have been featured in the San Francisco Chronicle in place of, the featured table setting that the Home and Garden featured.

Well "T" you have a setting to love, and beautiful natural design talent to go along with it.

Happy Thanks giving to you and your loved one's

xoxo

Beautiful, absolutely beautiful!!! You have a wonderful talent and your table looks so inviting. I think you are going to have a very special Thanksgiving. Your entire dining room looks beautiful. Kathysue used the word "sparkles" and that is exactly what your table and room does...Sparkles!
I wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving.

Your table looks absolutely lovely - love the feathers!! And so funny, my dining room is a very similar color - I find it surprisingly goes with almost everything! I'll be posting some Thanksgiving tabletops I think on Wednesday.

Wonderful feathers & otherwise also fun and pretty table setting.

Such beauty! I love your green touch! My tablecloths this year are going to be old linen sheets I brought home from France. I took them to the cleaners to be cleaned and ironed, picked them up yesterday, got home and one of the sheets is not here! I am frantic he gave it to someone else and I will never see it again... It is so beautiful and it was so heavy to carry! Oh well... Have a Beautiful beautiful day. I am Thankful for you!

Hi Terri,
Your table is so YOU! Love those Ikat napkins. I saw them too in the Chronicle! I'm setting my table today. Help me decide which plate to use. I posted last night about my dilemma! Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. I'm assuming you get to see your son. Wish mine could fly home for the weekend.....

Gorgeous Terri! It's so spunky & fun. I love it!

What a combination of everything lovely. Fresh colours, fresh patterns, that tureen...oh my that got my eye! The succlents, the crystal chandleier, the poca coral, it's all perfect. Are you cooking?? :) I'm "thankful" that I'm not!

your chandelier is absolutely fantastic!

Lisa said...

Oh I love your table settings & your round table with that handsome skirt!
I took photos too for the first time. The table was ok but the turkey....I had to delete. It tasted good but looked horrible.
Anyway, stop by to see if you get a chance.
Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful!
