Season of Color

Join everyone over at Color Outside The Lines for this week's edition of

Welcome to another edition of Tablescape Thursday brought to you by Susan over at

I'd like to wish all of you the most joyous of Thanksgivings.

Happy Turkey Day!

A casual Thanksgiving Day table for all the outdoorsey members of the family.  The hunters, the joggers, the four wheelers, and those just ready to interact with family and friends without a lot of pomp.  This table is all about the food and friendship.

Vintage and Post 86 Fiesta mix together as members of the same family, bringing together both old colors and the new. Sapphire, Paprika, Antique Gold, Vintage Yellow, Turf Green, Amberstone, Lilac, and a few pieces of the relatives that are rarely seen.  The Raspberry branch of the family.

Goblets from Pier 1, Hobnail glassware from Home Goods, flatware from Macy's.

The tablecloth and napkins have an Egyptian/Deco motif with lots of geese and
Papyrus in the design.

One of two vintage items from Homer Laughlin China with turkey decals.

Raspberry Fiesta candle holders.

The wooden candle tray was originally used to mold sugar.

  13. I LIKE it!!! Very colorful and cool!!! This is a great step outside the box! Enjoy your Thanksgiving!!!!!!

  14. What a fun take on the Thanksgiving table. I thought that tablecloth looked Egyptian, thanks for confirming. Those colors work so well with the turkey theme. All the colors are a feast for the eyes, a true bounty of beauty.

  15. I have never participated before, and don't even know if this comment will make its way to you. But, I had to write after viewing your table. About fifty years ago, as a small child at a small country fair, I tossed a nickel and it landed on one of the larger prizes, a platter with a turkey design in the center. What a wonderful surprise to view your table and see your vintage pieces with the very same turkey.
    Next week I will use my platter for our Thanksgiving turkey, just as it has been used each year since that wonderful WIN. Thank you for refreshing what is a great childhood memory. Wishing you a Blessed Thanksgiving.

  16. Really like your take on Thanksgiving using bold clear colors. The Egyptian motif cloth is amazing. I've never thought about collecting Franciscan, but you are making a dent in my mind set. Thank you for sharing your charming design. Cherry Kay

  17. You amaze me with your Fiesta dishes but adding that tablecloth and all the accessories just adds to the charm. Beautiful array of colors. Have a Happy Thanksgiving.

  18. Lovely table, and love all the colors, very pretty.
    Also like the corn cob candles, how cute!
    You always have the neatest tablecloths, I don't think I have seen one that I didn't think was so neat!!
    Happy Thanksgiving to you as well.
    Blessings, Nellie

  19. SWOON! I love it all!

  20. Candy, you are truly amazing with all the ideas you have! Each week is such a treat! I love this table (as I love all of your tables) This is beautiful. So what time is dinner? :)

  23. I've never seen such a colorful Thanksgiving table :) it looks amazing. I know your whole family will enjoy gathering around it. Happy Thanksgiving
    Hugs Denise

  24. Good Morning, Candy! Super use of non-traditional colors for Turkey Day! I love the way that the blues and ambers work together...another great inspiration for your fellow 'scapers!

  25. Wow! I love that you carry out your own personal style with such flare. It's wonderful that you USE your amazing collection of Fiestaware.

    The tablecloth is fantastic!

  26. Turkey Day is approaching quickly and I think this may turn out to be a favorite from recent years. I love the mix of colors that reflect all of Mother Nature's colors of the season.

    Thanks so much for coming by and I hope you'll stop back for a couple more Fall tablescapes before Christmas hits TLRT!

    And a few of you did notice that it is on an alternate table ..... life is not always "round". LOL

    Anonymous - I do hope you'll join us again, so nice to have you stop by and share your story. That turkey decal, like so many of the vintage decals, was sold to many potteries by an outside company. So it appears on a variety of vintage dinnerware not just Homer Laughlin China. Just love it because he is so plump and feathery ..... just like a turkey should be.

    Hope to see you all again very soon!


  27. So many beautiful things you shared.I am having a giveaway and hope you will stop by. Blessings, Debbie

  28. So colorful, your photography is amazing. Looks like I could be right in the room. What time are we eating!!

  29. Ahh. Who knew that blue could add so much. Your tablescape makes me smile. So... what time is dinner? I think we are all ready to come over.

    I love the corn cob candles as well. A bit of the unexpected.

  30. This is BEAUTIFUL!!!! I love it all especially what I assume to be some more NOP pieces in Raspberry. When I read the post I figured you were going to use the presentation bowl. The Sapphire looks great. As always, I love all the color combinations you create. Happy Thanksgiving!!

  31. I just love all of the photos you've shared. Your dishes are beautiful and I love the turkey accent plates you've used. Beautiful!

  32. Thanks everyone, I do appreciate you stopping by.

    And yes Monica .... those would be the NOP Raspberry relatives. :-) I love the combination of the vintage and the new and how it all looks like it was meant to be together.



Thank you for your lovely comments.
