Thanksgiving Entertaining!

It is a busy time here at Chestnut Cottage, with Thanksgiving in less than two weeks and Christmas just around the corner! Lots to do and little time to do it in!! But when one’s passion is entertaining, the joy outweighs the work. I recently visited a Williams Sonoma store and enjoyed looking at their Plymouth Turkey pattern in dinner plates and salad plates.

I particularly like the salad plate, with the large, bold turkey. The colors in this pattern speak autumn and the brown acorn and oak leaf border is lovely.

I might combine this pattern with American Thumbprint stemware from the Metropolitan Art Museum shop in topaz.

You can shop this stemware collection HERE.

This stemware comes in a number of colors and at a great price point. It has a fun vintage look!

And I recently spotted some very nice flatware from Chef’s Catalog that also comes in a variety of colors.

The woodgrain color would be a perfect fit for the turkey pattern and thumbprint stemware.

All three of these patterns are well designed and won’t break your tabletop budget. And if you are thinking ahead for your “collected Christmas table”, you could try this flatware in the green or red color-way.

Finish this Thanksgiving table with some colorful Sienna table linens from Crate and Barrel!

Now for one of my favorite autumn salads that would look yummy on the Plymouth Turkey salad plates! This salad has SO many of my favorite ingredients…butternut squash, pomegranate arils, arugula, walnuts, and goat cheese!

    Hi Kathryn, it is hard to believe that the holidays are upon us. I can’t wait to see puppy’s first Christmas pictures (hopefully he will stay away from the Christmas trees). the salad recipe looks wonderful and can’t wait to try it.
