Behind the Lace Curtains-Tuesday Table Setting No. 15, Thanksgiving 2005

I started hosting Thanksgiving dinner in 1999, after I purchased The Cottage.  It was my very own home, not a rental and not living with a relative.  My home, my kitchen.  I was excited!

My tables back then were simple but properly set affairs.  For my Thanksgiving table in 2005, I used a simple brown tablecloth and coordinating napkins made by Martha Stewart from an old 18th century pattern she had reproduced.  Persimmon Fiesta dinner plates were paired with Great-Grandma’s Coronation flatware.  The centerpiece was simple-my beloved Belleek Wheat vase made in Ireland.

This is one of few photographs I scanned in before my scanner broke.  There are other settings, but this is the only one I can share with you right now that is not on digital format.

Thanksgiving tablesetting 2005. Simple but effective. Great food and the most fantastic family time was had!
