While many of us are in the kitchen today, peeling and pureeing, blanching and baking, I thought I’d share a few images of our own Thanksgiving table. At the moment, good friends are en route from city to country for in intimate dinner in the dining room. The Oriental rug I found at an estate sale in Old Lyme, Connecticut, then had it thoroughly cleaned. The torn and tattered edges give the table a worldly, well-traveled feel I love. The plates are antique Spode from the 20s with an Indian Tree pattern in burnt orange and brown. For the glassware, I paired vintage Blinko wine glasses in amber hues with brass goblets from the Goodwill. The flatware is a modern mix of Bakelite, bone, Dirilyte and wood. Brass spiral candlesticks hold hand-dipped tapers in navy. Tomorrow morning, I plan to finish the table with fresh flowers, so if you need any last-minute inspiration, stay tuned to Twitter! Good luck, brave hosts, and Happy Thanksgiving to all!
