Sista's Thanksgiving Table


Hello, dear friends.  I hope this finds you enjoying a fabulous pre-Thanksgiving weekend.  Today is a big day for the Mister and me.  We are off to the airport to  pick up our #2.  Our #1 doesn't arrive until Wednesday because she has a big girl job.  Both are arriving with their usual accessory - a big fat ugly cold.  No holiday should be without one.

This week I am running some posts from the past.  This particular post comes from Sista's beautiful antique home in Connecticut a couple of years ago.  



Such a pretty place setting.


Love, love the tortoise horns in sterling silver holders with the gorgeous ostrich feathers and mercury pumpkins that illuminate the gorgeous tablescape.



The china is Christian Dior. Love Sista's place card.  


Darling sterling silver baby cups hold a small arrangement at each table setting.



If Sista's doodle spots that little squirrel, that gorgeous table is history.

Stunning horn of plenty.




 Birds eye view.






Every year the fireplace is lit to set the tone for a beautiful holiday.  





Until next time...

I'm Katie. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am an empty nester meandering through my middle-aged years while entangled in the never-ending process of renovating an antique home on the South Shore of Massachusetts. I love to write about books, movies, TV, celebrities, decorating, and weekend adventures. My favorite writing material is derived from my family: the Mister, my girls, #1 and #2, and my two untrainable, rambunctious pups, Chowdah and Chili.

  1. Are you headed to you sister's beautiful home again this year? Or are the girls keeping the presents (colds) at home rather than giving it away.
    Beautiful post, Katie. Have a wonderful Sunday- xo Diana

  3. Gorgeous and so festive and warm! Are you getting treated to another dinner at her house this year? Hope the girls are on the mend soon....as gross as it sounds, crushed garlic in apple juice (the apple juice is just to camouflage the taste of the potent garlic) I swear really can ward off a full blown cold (if you catch it early enough) my mom was right......as usual:) Gobble gobble....enjoy your Sunday.

  5. So lovely! You and Sista have a flair for tablescapes and decorating. Did you two inherit it from your mom?

  9. I love a formal table, especially for the holidays! This year will be a bit . . . um, casual for us. We're eating at my bachelor brother in his new house, and as of yesterday, he didn't have the stove installed. I'll close my eyes and think of your sister's table while I eat!
    Happy Thanksgiving week to you!
