Mom’s Thanksgiving Table

November 12th, 2012

Happy Monday to you all out there!  We’re still hanging out in Las Vegas with my folks and my sister and her husband sharing some fun times – there have been some Elvis sightings including this dude at the airport!  

We prepared a mini Thanksgiving feast since we won’t be together on Thanksgiving Day, and I set a festive table in my Mom’s dining room.  It’s a combination of plates and napkins she has had for years and some leaf clippings from her yard.  I love all the warm tones together and the mustard yellow accents.  Here are a few scenes from my Mom’s dining room!

Sandra at Sawdust and Paper Scraps built her own library, with routed wainscoting and built-in bookcases, what a grand result!
