Thanksgiving Table

I hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving celebrations.  We had a small gathering here with family.  There's a lot to be thankful for.  Hosting can be hectic, so I stayed up (too late) setting the table the evening before.  I used a simple white background for our elegant wedding china, and dried hydrangeas and fall leaves from our garden.  Fleur-de-lys punchouts from Petite Michelle Louise made the table festive.  My Dad asked if I cut those out by hand. 
I also added Michelle's 'Merci' tag to the centerpiece as a simple message for the day. 

The sparkling cider on the buffet was wrapped in some vintage Belgium ribbon and white burlap.  I mixed the burlap, lace and a vintage striped fabric from Brimfield Flea Market as the runner.  The mirror is a Brimfield treasure from several years ago.  It was fun mixing the elegant and rustic pieces.

Now on to Christmas decor ...the happiest season of all!
