~~~Turkeys at the Table and in the Dining Room!!!~~~

 I thought I'd better show you my turkeys since all this is getting packed away and Christmas is beginning! My daughter is having Thanksgiving so that is why I am getting an early start. Usually I don't start Christmas decorating til the Friday after Thanksgiving, but this year I am on a neighborhood house tour so wanted to get an early start! BUT, I also wanted to set a table for us til Thanksgiving and also show you the dining room. .I have this transitional runner that has pumpkins AND turkeys on it. Perfect for right now. I love the soft color of it too. I just used my Mr. Tom for my centerpiece, raised on a pedestal and surrounded by leaves and berries. Real squash and large acorns are scattered along the runner too. My ceramic pumpkins sit on the tiny pedestals from CTS.

  Just a simple place setting. The napkin really pulls out the green in the plate.
 I am using my brown bamboo flatware.

 Gorgeous, sunny morning greets us today.

 I love the beautiful detail on Mr. Tom

 Here are a few nighttime shots.

 And here is the dining room. It will chnge SOON, so I thought I'd better include it in this post. I kept my pumpkin topiary and used Mr. Tom along with it for the centerpiece.
 Brown pillar holders hold my leaf embossed candles and I used two candle rings: the greens and pumpkin ones too. It all sits on my leaf runner and the hutch is dressed with leaf plates.
 I love this topiary.
 I think he looks regal wherever he sits!

 2 sugared pumpkins complete the setting.

 I hope you all have a blessed Thanskgiving. We will, as our son is coming up from Florida so all of the (immediate) family will be together. That is a true blessing. I wish Joe's brother and sister and spouses could be here too.
