Thanksgiving will be here in one week, and I thought I’d get a head start by planning my tablescape. I knew that I wanted to use my vintage Medway china by Alfred Meakin that I had acquired this year on two separate occasions. You can read about that here and here.
I think the colors in this china are perfect for Thanksgiving. But I especially wanted to pull out the purple in the china. Why? Because it’s gorgeous. I’ve been looking for a tablecloth and napkins that shade but with no success. So I decided to use a yellow-gold tablecloth, brown chargers, and brown napkins.
But I really wanted to use purple with the china, so this week I repainted an old brass planter to use as a centerpiece. I used this planter during the spring here when I painted it white. It sat outside all summer and really needed a new paint job. So I repainted it a creamy color and painted the raised pattern purple. Then I rubbed some dark walnut stain over it to age the piece.
Last night I was on Pinterest, and I saw some free printables for Thanksgiving.
So I downloaded these from here, and printed them on some parchment like card stock.
