"Naturally Glammy Thanksgiving Table"

It's been a while :)
I thought I would set an early Thanksgiving Table.  My spray painted gold sticks I had used for an event a few weeks ago were calling me, actually nagging me.  I couldn't resist since I could do this whole look without spending any money because I had most of it from said previous event. Bonus! I loved the idea that it had the natural element so that I didn't have to feel guilty about all of the other sparkly stuff that I was about to throw in.  It's all natural too, sorta. You'll see.
Blank palate...

I added the sticks...

Then added the other "natural" things. Love the sparkly nests

Set my fine china on gold chargers.  The beauty in doing all of this is that this was my mama's china. It was a nice quiet time of remembering my childhood Thanksgivings.  My mom always made a memorable turkey dinner which would start before dawn. I always helped tear the bread for the dressing. That was my job and I loved it. Dad would warm up the TV and we would all pile on the floor in front of it for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Never, Never missed that!  Once football started though the channel changed whether it was over or not so we didn't always get to see Santa.
The gold ware was my mom's too. It was a later addition but I was the youngest of 6 so I had a few more dinners with it.  I ended up with it too!
(Thankful for that!)
Next I wrote on my giant chalkboard.  There are so many scriptures to choose from but this one spoke to me today. I will probably change a few times in the next week just to use others that are special too. Oh the beauty of chalk!


Added a few more fall~ish things...



 All done.

To all the young women who are just starting out, don't be discouraged with what you don't have.
You have a lot of years ahead of you to acquire and accumulate. It's all just junk in the grand scheme.
Have fun being creative with what you have. You can always buy a can of gold metallic spray paint!
Hope & pray you all have a beautiful Thanksgiving.  Thank you for visiting!
