The late fall day was absolutely magical! Blue skies, a slight breeze coaxing the last autumn stained leaves from the trees so they could dance across the cut fields of corn…
What a beautiful day to celebrate Thanksgiving… al fresco!
A list of bloggers and their sites are at the end of this post. You won’t want to miss even one!!!!!
Our side yard spills into the adjoining field that was filled with tall rustling corn stalks all summer. But once cut, opened up to the bucolic vista that we hadn’t seen since late spring! Oh how I love this view!
It was the perfect spot to set a Thanksgiving table… under the almost bare red maples looking over the neighboring fields!
The table was set very casually, even using a drop cloth for a tablecloth!
No placemats, no chargers, just the basics… mostly in white!
The late afternoon sun casts long blue shadows over the casual table!
What would a Thanksgiving table be without a nod to a turkey! I purchased these Pottery Barn plates last year and have been waiting to use them!
Natural linen napkins are sandwiched between the two plates!
One of my favorite holiday traditions is to have a big bowl of nuts in their shells around and waiting to be cracked and eaten. I remember this from when I was a little girl.
I tweaked this family tradition just a tad and put a small white bowl of nuts at each place.
Everyone gets their own nut cracker too!
No flowers or frills on this table… a mix of white pottery, pumpkins and candles… in no particular order run down the center of the table!
I love the stem on this funny little pumpkin!
The white table lets the view shine!
Chairs, rockers and a bench become seating for this casual Thanksgiving table.
It doesn’t take much thought to find things to be thankful for outdoors this perfectly beautiful day!
I hope you all have a blessed and happy Thanksgiving!
