It’s our first Thanksgiving in the Blue Cottage!
And I wanted to figure out a nice Thanksgiving table setting that wouldn’t cost much. This is what I came up with:
I wanted to only use items we already own, and I pulled it off.
Thanksgiving Tables Setting With Vintage Items
I scored a lot of 14 vintage pressed glass the other day at Barns at Sundial Farm, perfect for wine and water glasses.
Those silver candle sticks? Bought the pair for $5 during the recent town tag sale, such a score.
The white Mikasa plates are part of our wedding china, and I picked up 8 of those vintage transferware plates at the Women’s Club tag sale. The brown color is perfect for Thanksgiving.
I paired them with vintage cotton napkins I bought along with the glasses last weekend — perfect timing, because I don’t usually have ironed napkins lying around.
Do you like my little touch of green from our yard?
I wanted to create a simple place card and decided to use some cardstock tags, off-white ribbon, and a little wooden clips that I use to package my soy candles. I’m sure you could do something similar with supplies you already have.
Notice this vintage cast iron fireplace mantel I just had to have that I leaned against our stone fireplace for now? It did find a place in our new home.
Don went to visit them last year and can’t wait to get back there. The odd thing is the “Bremen” connection, because I grew up in Bremen, Germany.
I uncovered the birds nest in the same box as the placemats, and I bought those ceramic bird salt and pepper shakers at Pier1. I go there once a year after Christmas to pick up amazing deals for pennies.
