Vintage Thanksgiving Table Setting

Vintage Thanksgiving table setting with turkey plates, a turkey planter centerpiece filled with faux flowers, thrift store linens and wooden accent pieces.

Last year, my mother-in-law was our only guest for Thanksgiving. I’m so grateful that this year we can safely gather with a few more family and friends! I pulled out some items from my stash along with my “new” plates to design a Vintage Thanksgiving Table Setting.

I’m participating in a Thanksgiving Tablescape Blog Hop, graciously hosted by my friend Rita from Panoply. There are links to 21 other table settings created by a talented group of table stylists at the end of this post. You are bound to be inspired!

Inspiration for a Vintage Thanksgiving Table Setting

I was so excited when I found these vintage turkey plates a few weeks ago! They were hidden among some junk in the back room of an antique shop. I felt like I stole them for just $1 each! They are hand painted and made in Italy by Mancioli. I love the green leaf motif!

I found the long wooden riser at a vintage market this past Spring. The vendor said it came out of an old barn. I knew it would make it’s way onto one of my tablescapes.

The turkey planter centerpiece is another vintage find. He was also featured on my Colorful and Traditional Thanksgiving Tablescape. I filled him with some faux flowers.

I always like to have some candlelight on the table!
