Hello my friends!

Welcome to the 126th run of "Sunday Favorites"
*
I hope that you're having a wonderful weekend!  Wow...can you believe it?  Thanksgiving is nearly here!  I have been  busy...busy...planning for our Thanksgiving.  My two step-children will be here to help us celebrate this very special occasion.  They are coming all the way from Iowa.  We will be celebrating our Thanksgiving on Nov. 26th and 27th...so I'm cancelling the Sunday Favorites party that weekend to spend time with family!  So mark your calendars...we will be back to the regular Sunday Favorites party on Dec. 3rd.  Thank you for being patient with me. 
*
I'm looking forward to our visit and I'm looking forward to preparing that traditional turkey dinner.  Yum!
*
Happy Thanksgiving
*
This will be the last Sunday Favorites party before Thanksgiving.  I would like to wish all of you, dear friends...a very blessed and happy Thanksgiving!  I am truly blessed!!!  I thank God for this great country in which I live, for giving me a warm roof over my head, and food on my table!  I thank Him for my precious family and I thank Him for YOU!  Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, my friends!!!

Today I am revisiting a post from Thanksgiving 2010 for the Sunday Favorites party.  I hope that you enjoy!

"Autumn Pears...a Thanksgiving Table"
Thanksgiving 2010
*
*
Hello my friends...Happy Thanksgiving!
*
Today is going to be a very busy day for many of us. Preparations for Thanksgiving
 are well under way at my place! We will be celebrating Thanksgiving on Friday when
 my step-children arrive. This year it will just be the four of us, nevertheless I am cooking
 a turkey with all the fixins'! Mmmm...I can hardly wait! Hehe!
*
I have prepared a small, informal table in our dining room.
 I hope you enjoy!
*
Autumn Pears...A Thanksgiving Table
*
I have used autumn pears in so much of my autumn decor this year. At the
 beginning of the season I created a three tiered centerpiece for the dining room
 table filled with autumn's bounty. I decided to use this centerpiece for our
 Thanksgiving table and continue the theme of "autumn pears".
*
*
The table is dressed in golden yellow, pear green, and warm
 browns...the colors of autumn pears!
*
*
*
The Centerpiece...
*
The Centerpiece was created using three tiers of glass pedestal cake plates.
 A tall, gold pillar candle sits on the top layer...along with a few wood pods and
 three miniature pumpkins. The middle layer is filled with autumn pears. Autumn
 berries, woody seed pods, nuts, and two yellow lovebird figurines decorate the
 bottom layer.
*
A few wood acorns and autumn pears are scattered about on the gold table
 runner. I just love this beautiful gold table runner...it has white vines and leaves
 embroidered on each end! A pair of vintage Roseville pottery candleholders sit
 on either side of the three tiered centerpiece.
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*

**
The Place Setting...
*
The same color theme of golden yellow, pear green, and warm brown form
 the layers of the "autumn pear" place setting.
*
*
My latest treasure find...salad/dessert plates featuring pears! I found these pretty
 plates on Ebay...it was love at first sight! The pattern, Golden Pears by Julie
 Bullimore (1998) are from Crate & Barrel. The set of four plates features
 a different type of pear on each plate.
*
I love this shade of pear green and the gold gilded leaves!
*
*
A white ironstone dinner plate from my every day dishes.
*
*
I found these beautiful leaf plates on sale at JC Penneys at the end of summer. They
 are the same shade of green as the pear salad/dessert plates. I love the way the leaf plate
 frames out the place setting! A brown charger plate with embossed autumn leaves on
 the rim completes the place setting.
*
*
I love how the green, white, and brown colors of the place setting look together!
*
*
A red autumn pear!
*
*
*
*
*
The flatware is called Brahms by Oneida.
*
*
The stemware.
*
*
I layered two dinner napkins.
*
The gold napkin matches the table runner and has the same white vines
 embroidered on it. The green and tan plaid napkin brings more of an informal
 feel to the setting! A wood napkin ring with embossed autumn leaves ties
 nicely in with the charger plate.
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
And Voila!!! Autumn Pears...our 2010 Thanksgiving table!
*
*
Warmest Thanksgiving Wishes...

Guidelines for Participating in Sunday Favorites
*
Add a "visible" link for the Sunday Favorites party to your blog post or add the Sunday Favorites button from my sidebar.  The link leading back to Happy To Design should be a "visible" link in your post...not "Parties Here" or "Find the parties that I am linking to in my sidebar" or somewhere else is...unacceptable!   No one should have to search for the parties you are joining.
*
Please do not add your link below, until your Sunday Favorites post is actually published to your blog.  If you are participating in Sunday Favorites, please be sure to add your permalink and not your general blog address.
*
If you have found that your link has been deleted...then it was not following the guidelines.  Please read the instructions and try again.
*

Thank you so much for your participation!!! I am going to really enjoy going through your "Sunday Favorites" posts!!!
*
*
***Just a little note: Sunday Favorites Criteria***
*
When I first started the Sunday Favorites meme, my initial thought was to offer a solution for getting a post out on the weekend without having to spend alot of time doing so...weekends are just a busy time for most of us! Copying and pasting a previous post is so quick and easy. Not only is this a quick and easy solution to the busy weekends, but it's also an opportunity to dig back into our blog archives and share a favorite "past" post once again! Many of us spend alot of time and effort creating a post and it just seems a shame that it is viewed only once and then forgotten about!
*
I would like to reiterate that Sunday Favorites is a meme about sharing or revisiting a post from the PAST!  Please do not add a freshly published post to the Sunday Favorites party...it is NOT what this party is about.
*
Thank you!!!

Hi Chari - seems like it's been forever since I participated in Sunday Favorites.

As usual, you set such a lovely table. We have a similar flatware pattern - I have Oneida Monte Carlo.

Crazy busy weekend - gotta run. Take care, and have a wonderful week.

This is a great table. Nice change for Thanksgiving. The pears and the three tier stand are great touches. So glad you reposted.

Chari, Thanks for hosting this Sunday reprise. I enjoyed seeing your beautiful pear tablescape for Thanksgiving last year. I don't think I saw it.
I hope my entry is appropriate. While not a post reprise it is a collection of the past.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving

Everything looked so beautiful Chari (as always *winks*) I wanted to wish you and your family a wonderful Thanksgiving! We're ditching the family this year and having a romantic dinner out alone....I'll sure miss those leftovers though *winks* Vanna
