Turkeys, Turkeys.....Everywhere

Gobble...Gobble....Gobble.......Can you accept the thought that time is drawing near enough to prepare for the Thanksgiving holiday?  At The Little Yellow Corner Store we often get some visitors at this time of year who stop in for their annual feast.  Can you guess who they are?  How about a flock of hungry and cagey turkeys!  With all of the strutting through the backyard corn field and gathering in the front yard crab apple trees, they certainly make for a humorous occasion and a great inspiration for my Thanksgiving tablescape.

It gives me great pleasure to once again invite you to join me in viewing and celebrating with other tablescape designers the beautiful tablescape creations on display during this week starting Monday, November 4, 2019 to Friday, November 8, 2019.  Our gracious host for this Thanksgiving Tablescape Blog Hop is Chloe Crabtree of Celebrate and Decorate who works tirelessly to organize and bring us these amazing and remarkable tablescapes.  For this, I would like to express my sincerest gratitude to Chloe for putting so much time into this work, which offers all of us the chance to enjoy this spectacular art form and to provide us with a wonderful opportunity to collect ideas to decorate our home and make it cozy.  Please be sure to visit all of the links below, which are updated on their specific day during this week.

So let's puff up our feathers and begin with my own interpretation of a Turkey Day tablescape.  Although my back yard turkey visitors makes for a side-splitting, laughable spectacle, I directed my design to the genuine beauty of turkeys instead.  Rather than choosing to do a tablescape which was playful and whimsical, I decided to create one which exemplifies the meaning behind words such as, "thankfulness", "gratitude", and "blessedness."  These words are so closely tied to the essence of Thanksgiving.  Actually, my choice of design also stems from a  recent purchase of a gorgeous turkey soup tureen.  This beautiful turkey is painted in rich colors of gold, green, brown and burgundy and rests on a dazzling basket full of nature's bounty of grapes, pumpkins and squash.  It was a perfect addition to the ceramic turkey candleholders and napkin rings I already collected a number of years ago.  So this time, my table truly is all about turkeys, turkeys......everywhere.










This beautiful tablecloth with its rich colors of gold, green and burgundy was sewn by my daughter and will be cherished for many years to come.










I used the amber glass dinnerware set that my sister gave me for my birthday a number of years ago.  It is such a versatile set that renders a warm, inviting glow to any tablescape theme.







Ceramic turkey napkin rings are colorful and detailed and works beautifully with the rich rust colored napkin.




The same goes for the ceramic turkey taper candle holders.  A simple but elegant detail.



















How appropriate are these little pumpkin pie slices as an appetizer for the Thanksgiving holiday.  Made from crackers, cheddar cheese and a dollop of blended cream cheese and sour cream, these cute little pie slices are the perfect quick and easy snack.






















Yes, the Fall season is ablaze.




Our visitors are here!  I am sure they will find plenty of things to eat.  After all, it is Thanksgiving!








Happy Thanksgiving to you all!




Now it is time to strut on over to all of the other fine bloggers who have designed some spectacular Thanksgiving holiday tablescapes:

  1. Marsha, a beautiful bounty of color on your table. Your turkey collection is enviable, and so perfectly coordinates with your choice of textiles, dishes, glass and flatware...not to mention the colorful centerpiece arrangement! What a gorgeous view on your property, a decidedly good choice for your inspiration. Your overview shot of the place setting on your table is truly stunning with the vivid colors. And what a delightful surprise of a snack/appetizer in those pumpkin 'pie' cheese bits! Happy to be in your company this week, today. Happy November blessings.

  2. It is hard to believe we have to near the end of another year but at the beginning of holiday season with my favorite one being Thanksgiving! So yes it is hard to accept that fact but easy to embrace it.
    Your turkey soup tureen is inspirational because it is so gorgeous and the perfect center of attention. All of the little turkey touches with the candle holders and napkin rings add such a warm feeling for the season. I'm in love with your amber glassware, all of it!
    The turkeys in the back yard are wonderful, if they only knew! I love your colorful table! Your daughter made a gorgeous table cloth for you to cherish.

  6. Wow, those are A LOT of turkeys in your yard! No wonder you were so inspired to gobble gobble! A stunning table full of rich details and gorgeous jewel tones. I have a turkey tureen too and it's one of my favorite things. Did you make the sweater pumpkins? I made my first ones recently, and they grace my centerpiece later this week. Thanks for the pumpkin pie appetizer idea --- hoping to use it this year.

  7. The colors you've chosen are amazing. These rich vibrant shades are generally what I think of this time of year. I'm loving your appetizers and will "borrow" that idea for my Thanksgiving dinner. A few years back we would see an occasional wild turkey in the backyard and it was a pleasant surprise. Hats off to your daughter for sewing the tablecloth. It's very pretty and goes so well with your table. Happy Thanksgiving and enjoy the time with your family.

I love your colorful table with the rich and vibrant shades of autumn. How special that your daughter made the beautiful tablecloth that I know you will cherish. Your details are well executed and the pumpkin pie appetizers are so cute. It is always a pleasure to blog hop with you!

  12. Oh my goodness I love this all so much! I am a huge fan of traditional Thanksgiving decor and I adore turkeys. I have had a very similar tureen for about 15 years. Your tablescape is gorgeous, along with your property and scenery. We usually spy a couple of wild turkeys in the forest across the street this time of year but none so far. I am definitely keeping an eye out.

    So fun to join you on this hop. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
