Thanksgiving Tablescape

It is Thanksgiving Eve!  The bird is slowly thawing, the groceries have been purchased, the table is set and the house is shiny & clean, finally it is time to start baking.  All of these preparations make me wonder if the Pilgrims and Indians made such a fuss over their feast?  I pray that all of your Thanksgiving celebrations will be simply blessed and that you'll be surrounded by loved ones. 
In place of a table runner I used three mirrors & since the table is so long I made 3 center pieces with varying heights, textures, and coordinating colors.   
   The only item purchased for this table setting was this bouquet of fresh flowers from Costco.
Autumn colors pop against the black and white tablecloth and dishes.  
Candied fruits add color to each table setting.  The monogrammed napkins were made by my parents and they look so pretty with our Lenox china.
 Psalm 95:1-3
      Oh come, let us sing to the Lord;

    let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!
Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving;
    let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!
For the Lord is a great God,

    and a great King above all gods.

Happy Thanksgiving!
