Tablescape: Thanksgiving 2009

I have used a lot of things from last year, like the tablecloth (actually 2 twin flat sheets) and the centerpiece.
But it lacked color, so I used the souvenir plates that I collect.  Everyone really liked these and I think it will be fun for my children to see which plate they get each year.  I also added the brown runners (actually a curtain from Wally world that I cut to size).
I also created a desert table.  I wasn't really happy with the coffee urn; so I have replaced it with a silver one.  I've seen that someone painted a crock pot with blackboard paint (sorry I can't remember this clever woman's name), So I may paint this urn.  It would be so great to write what's in it on the side. I got all of these cake plates from thrift stores. I especially like the cut-glass butter dish top that I use to hold dinner mints.

Cute idea using the souvenir plates. I am in love with your dining room chairs! Thanks for your visit and kind comments on my mirror. I purchased the rose appliques on ebay and the dealer is "Do it yourself Chic". I have purchased several things from her and they all have worked great. Tell her I sent you. Thanks again.
