All year-long I hunt for fabrics to use for tablecloths and this year I scored three remnants of fabric with a brown/ blue bird pattern. I knew immediately it would be the inspiration for setting my Thanksgiving table. Luckily, when we sewed together the sections, the cloth fit our table perfectly. I went hunting in my house for items to use for a centerpiece and pulled out the various sized brass candlesticks I had collected over the years from my Grandmother, tag sales and flea markets. I decided to forgo the laborious task of shining them all and left them in the original patina. I then went looking for pieces to compliment the tablecloth. I borrowed three brass planters for the centerpiece from Found, a fabulous decorating and home store in New Canaan, CT and Juliska very nicely lent me the table settings. It was so much fun pulling it all together and layering all the elements that I got a little carried away with the pictures but, to be fair, I wanted to give you lots of angles to see how it turned out. I hope you love it as much as I do…Now if only I could keep it as is for Thanksgiving!
