This exciting table setting idea is by The Little Round Table. Candy awakens your Thanksgiving holiday with color, whimsy and vintage inspired charm. Candy mixes antiques, collectibles, seasonal embellishments and newer table top decor to create beautiful Thanksgiving themed table settings. What you are looking at in these photos is newer Fiestaware and table accessories which are contemporary interpretations of old styles set in a Country kitchen.

Discount Thanksgiving Table Settings And Decor

While Candy has a full collection of both vintage and new linens and also cabinets of entertaining collectibles the photos shown here showcase how to make the most of your Thanksgiving table setting using items from discount stores.

I thought I would share these photos with you and remind you that you could easily substitute vintage pottery,plates, candle sticks, glassware, linens etc to accomplish a warm and festive look.

Thanksgiving Harvest Table Decor

Candy calls this particular Thanksgiving table decor "Harvest Table". Many of the colors shown here were popular in the 1970s when Pyrex, serving pieces, dinnerware and accessories were in "Harvest colors" of brown, orange, gold and green . When you go out shopping for vintage kitchen and entertaining collectibles you that there are lots of items available in "Harvest" colors.

With the right combination of colors, you can have a really hip look, shaking up the 1970s in a new way.
