Tablescape Tuesday: We Gather Together

“May the Lord give strength to his people!
May the Lord bless his people with peace!”
‭Psalm‬ ‭29‬:‭11

As we gather with our sweet families this Thanksgiving, let us not forget the untold millions who will go to sleep once again hungry!  We cannot personally feed the entire world, but we can sponsor an orphan for as little as a dollar a day!  May we love the least of these by sharing our abundance!

You can see our Thanksgiving Tablescape here: We Give Thanks.  Our setting today is transitional from Thanksgiving to Christmas.  Hope you will get ideas on how to take your white dinnerware and make it seasonal!


Candlelit dinners are always special.  Enjoy them with your family often!


Creamy white linen tablecloth with all cream dinnerware


I found the birch wood containers in Highlands, NC. It is so easy to pop a few natural elements into them for unique arrangements!


My friend, Joann made the beautiful napkin rings for my birthday…love them!


Deer antlers give the table a rustic feel.  Butch and Seth share a passion for hunting!


Just a couple of small white pumpkins for a Thanksgiving feel!


I used grapevine wreaths as chargers.  These were used at Seth’s and Allie’s rehearsal dinner.


The water glasses are a vintage Fostoria given to me by a friend of my Mother


Antique cut glass purchased recently on a trip to Mentone!


Place cards were a sweet gift from my friend, Kathy



I love the mix of  rustic and elegant!


I gathered sage,  burning bush, rosemary, and ornamental grass blooms from our yard to fill the birch containers!


The Rogers Bros. silver plated flatware given to Butch and me for our wedding from my Mother


Pheasant soup tureen serves as the centerpiece!

“Give thanks to the Lord, our God and King
His love endures forever
For He is good, He is above all things
His love endures forever…”

    Beautifully elegant table, Pam. I love the different textures of the dishes and the beautiful stemware. But my favorite are the birchwood containers…they are fabulous.
    Have a wonderful week.

    • Marigene, I always enjoy hearing from you. You are such an encourager. I also love the birch containers and wish I had bought at least one more. Wishing you a great Christmas season!
      Blessings, Pam

    What a beautiful table! I love the birch holders. White dishes are always classic and can be dressed up or down. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

    • Judy, thank you for reading and for your question. The pattern is “Baroque” by American Atelier and only came in boxed sets. I purchased at a local department store several years ago and it was not expensive. Horchow. com still carries it, I think I saw it recently on their website. If you can’t find it, let me know and I might can help. Wishing you a joy-filled Christmas and I hope you will visit our blog often! Blessings, Pam

    The elegance of your table is something to be thankful for, my friend. The birch holders are great and I’m sure you will find many occasions where they are perfect. I’d love to express my gratitude at one of your beautiful tables.

  5. What a beautiful table! I just love the quiet feel of the predominately white table. The textures on this table are just wonderful. I would love to enjoy a Thanksgiving meal around this table.

We love your comments!
