Turkey Time

I am almost ready for Thanksgiving Day at my house, it will be a late Thanksgiving dinner since I get off work at 4:30 pm. However it will still be delicious.

I worked on setting my table last night after work and cleaned my silver turkey dome and large tray it sets on. The serving tray was a trophy for some horse show, it has an engraving on tray and I seen it last night for the first time and I have had this tray for years, I like it because it has the handles on the ends and feet on the bottom

Also this year instead of using a table cloth I purchased this paper with leaves and acorns on it and using it for a table runner on the table and my counter. I set my huge velvet pumpkin in middle of table till we put dinner on the table

Used my green glasses I got at Tuesday Morning once, I usually use clear crystal glasses but wanted some color with any brown and white transfer plates

Since I don't have enough large turkey plates I fill in with my brown and white transfer ship plates

My dome is so shinny clean you can see me taking the picture. When I was much younger I remember older friends and family saying they quit using their silver because it was to hard to clean, I understand that is why usually just one piece at a time is clean at my house .

I hope everyone including our homeless have a good meal someplace this Thanksgiving . I just have a few of the colored luncheon plates

Happy Thanksgiving to you all

  6. Very lovely table and dinnerware. I am right this minute listening to a program on NPR about the stress of living in the USA today with constant activities, people holding down two to three part-time jobs, smartphones, never having nothing to do, etc. etc. and that 50% of adults said they were completely exhausted. And then I read that you are serving Thanksgiving after you get home from work at 4:30 p.m. Gosh, I wished I could help you!
