Since I'm not sure where we will be for Thanksgiving next Thursday.
I'm just going to pretend it's today and set the table for a "make-believe" feast.
Want to join me?
Welcome to our dining room....
Honored guests sit at the head of the table.
We are dining on Sall's prized dishes!
Naturally, they have wild game on them...
They are Johnson Brothers from England.
Isn't the turkey platter spectacular?
The rest of the place settings consist of the
Pheasant, Wood Cock, Turkey, Partridge,
Quail, and Ruffed Grouse
I still can't believe Sall was using these as his everyday dishes when we first met.
As soon as I discovered how valuable they were,
I quickly put them away in the china cupboard and got out the corelle.
Now we only bring them out for special occasions!
Along with Grandma Sall's beautiful ruby glassware...
Of course, flowers are a must on this Thanksgiving table..
and Lillie's are my favorite.
I'm happy you could join me for this practice-run...
Maybe we'll do it again next Thursday (for real)
With real turkey and all the fixin's!!!
And now I had better start on that grocery list....
Have a great day,
P.S. I'm sharing today's Thanksgiving practice-run with Susan
Be sure and check out some of the wonderful tablescapes
and register to win some beautiful Mikasa China. Good Luck!
Just found another fun site to share Sall's dishes!
