I loved Allie's picture the other day....such beautiful place settings and china and glasses....so very pretty :wub:

So yesterday I thought I'd try my hand at it :blush: My house isn't very formal, it's more like a cottage and I don't have the linens I'd like (this year) but this is how I fed 12 people in my tiny house...

A couple of the kids (teenagers) sat here...

And this table worked out just fine for four more.

You probably can't see it in the pictures, but I LOVE pretty wine glasses, so each person got a different glass.




Oh, and it came out a bit dark, but here are a few of my tea cups - the rest are scattered around in my china closet.

Hope everyone had a great day yesterday! My 30 lb bird came out absolutely delicious and juicy!!! :chili:

Pat,

It looks devine and inviting! The Turkey looks *perfect*

I love to mix and match china and crystal and even flatware - I do color outside of the lines . . . (once in a while) :)

Have a FUN, exciting, and a little naughty - vacation!

Pat - just perfect.:thumbsup: Having been there I can really see it all. Such a change from that puppy party where there was food all over that table, buffet style as everyone brought something.:aktion033:Still makes me smile. But this makes me feel warm and homey and like what Thanksgiving is all about.:wub:

I know, Pat. When you have that many people you just can't start with the passing of the dishes around or everything will be ice cold. Last night our hosts did a buffet too and kept the food hot in the kitchen. It was all so good there was lots of sneaking away for thirds and fourths. :w00t: I made two giant dishes of stuffing and they were a big hit. Here were two of our contributions: apple pie and choc chip cherry cookies my DH made:
