I’ve put the finishing touches on my dining room for Thanksgiving. Combining vintage dishes with a few DIY projects and adding in a couple of thrift store finds gave me the look I wanted. I love gold tones for fall and Thanksgiving.
The very first thing I did to give my dining room a fall makeover was to put together this centerpiece. It’s a combination of a vintage cake stand, a thrift store candle holder and hand painted pumpkins. It’s just right for Thanksgiving Dining Room Decor.
I found the gold charges at Marshall’s a few weeks ago. They are a perfect match for this look. The dishes are one of my favorite finds ever. Years ago, while browsing at an antique store in Monterey, California, I spotted a six place setting of Winterling Bavarian Dawn Rose dinnerware. They had to come home with me!
I love these mid-century Libby Gold Foliage glasses. I found them along with the dinnerware. They look great for a fall tablescape. The marble coasters with gold trim are a recent find at Marshall’s.
Candles in amber and silver add to the golden hues of my Thanksgiving Dining Room Decor. I found a cute acorn and pumpkin salt and pepper shaker at Walmart. The gold flatware finishes off the look.
The buffet has a similar look to it. I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned my love of Iris Herringbone glassware. It was produced by Jeanette Glass Company. It’s not expensive and is a beautiful collectible. The plates, bowl and vase are a few of the pieces I love. These are gold iridescent. Many of the pieces were produced during the Depression Era though the company continued with limited production through the early 1980’s. I have quite a few pieces and it’s hard for me to resist a piece when I see one. The affordability factor makes it easy to purchase new pieces.
The ceramic turkey is a find from a few years ago. It was probably from Marshall’s or TJ Maxx.
I spray painted a few small pumpkins with glitter gold paint to add to the bowls.
Recently, I found a set of two candle holders on a trip to Goodwill. They fit right in.
I purchased a few flower stems at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft last year. I arranged them in a vintage Iris Herringbone vase.
Some hand painted pumpkins along with a thrift store candle holder sit atop a pedestal table in the dining room.
The only thing I have left to do is to create some pretty place cards.
The candle holders on top of the hutch are also Iris Herringbone. I keep most of my collection on display in the china hutch.
I also want to take a minute to mention the picture on the wall above the buffet. While it isn’t fallish, it is a beautiful photograph. Gloria took this photo a number of years ago. It was taken from the Marin Headlands overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge. It’s such a wonderful photograph. We had it enlarged and framed it.
Thanks for stopping by and having a look at my Thanksgiving Dining Room Decor!
