Thanksgiving at Blue Creek Home Part One

Hi and happy Monday!
It was easy for me to segue from Fall decorations into Halloween decorations and then into Thanksgiving decorations on November  1st. The fall garlands and pumpkins were all there - just had to change out ghosts and goblins for turkeys, Pilgrims and Indians.
Al loves Thanksgiving so I try to make it special around here.  My heart wants to start hanging Christmas wreaths and pulling out nativities, nutcrackers, and Santa Claus but, I will wait and give Thanksgiving it's due.  After all, I have an awfully lot to be thankful for.
We will put the tree(s) up the week before Thanksgiving so there will be sharing of the two holidays for a while. Also, I must put up the vintage silver tree in our bedroom soon. I adore it and I enjoy hanging the old mercury glass ornaments on it. 
Today is dedicated to Thanksgiving.  I am doing it in two parts - today is the den.  I will share the breakfast room in a couple of days. 

 I am very thankful for Blue Creek Home
I adore my Thanksgiving carolers
I think they are singing 'thanks' to our
 Father who is the giver of all good things!

 I used a straw pumpkin in 
the large cloche in the center

He is hiding, but the turkey on the left 
is very old - love him!

 Burlap and Fall leaves are draped 
across the top of this book case
 I got the huge lantern for Christmas last year.

 I would love to make a pilgrims
bonnet for my pretty girl
 For now she is still a princess!

 I just got the spiral topiary  a
couple of weeks ago when
 we were in Orange Beach

 I think old leather books and
 vintage tins add beauty anywhere

On the coffee table, I stacked pumpkins.
 Don't you love the white ones?

 These came from Wal-Mart for $4.99

  I removed the cloches from their bases
on each end of the mantle and
added these tall wheat bundles 

 I brought in the wonderfully rusted
wrought iron planter and set it on the hearth
I will fill it with live magnolia leaves 
a little closer to Christmas

 I got the set of blue mercury glass 
candle holders from Wisteria - 
I like the pop of non traditional color
I painted the little pumpkins with
Annie Sloan's duck egg and off white paint

  1. I love all of your pretty displays...especially those carolers!! I just bought three of them for Christmas...can't wait to put them out!

  2. I never decorate for Thanksgiving. Come to think of it I've only just gotten into decorating for other holidays. But I absolutely adore your decor- especially all of the garland.
