A IS FOR ACORNS
B IS FOR BIRD
C IS FOR CANDLE AND CREAMER
D IS FOR DISHES
S IS FOR SQUIRRELS
T IS FOR THANKS FOR THE BEGINNING OF
THE TRADITION OF A THANKGIVING TABLE.
THANKSGIVING WITH THE PREPARATION OF FOOD
BUT THE BEST PART IS SETTING THE TABLE
Think of the abundance of different ways to prepare a Thanksgiving feast from North to South and from East to West.
My first thought was the abundance of different nuts in the fall with one of the most common is the acorns falling from an oak tree. The squirrel has the job of planning ahead for the winter by placing nuts in storage.
These giant acorns in the centerpiece are too large for the squirrels in my yard but they capture the sense of the abundance of food we share at Thanksgiving.
We can share the harvest on Thanksgiving Day.
P is for Pilgrims and Pumpkins
The Pilgrims were blessed with the friendship of the American Indians.They shared this friendship with a feast we now celebrate as Thanksgiving.
C is for Corn
which was planted by the American Indians and they shared their knowledge of this wonderful source of food with the Pilgrims.
P is for Place Setting
and the first is the placemat of striped fall hues and golden swirls of leaves and acorns;
then the place plate with fall foliage embossed on its rim;
the rusts, oranges, and brown hues of leaves and fallen acorns;
a dinner plate with a gray wooden style rim,
the bird on an oak tree with colorful autumn leaves of crimson, gold and orange plus the acorns clinging to the branch,
the salad with the same lovely autumn leaves;
an embroidered gold leaf on the red wine
and gold checked napkin
plus the brown hues flatware;
presents a totally completed table setting for you!
T is for Teapot
and a hot tasty pot of "Sweet Harvest Pumpkin" by Celestial Seasonings or "Pumpkin Spice" by Bigelow for a cool fall day. One of these will be choosen
on Thanksgiving Day!
Bird on the
Squirrels and leaves,
acorns and pinecones,
warmth of the candles,
eating the turkey,
a Thanksgiving with tea in a pretty fall teapot,
cream in a creamer,
brown sugar in a sugar bowl,
all kinds of plenty
autumnally decorated fabrics and raking the leaves,
brings a ring of leaves and acorns for jumping into the pile,
a knife to cut up the turkey,
will the food BEE prepared on time for the feast,
the juicy cold apple cider,
and a mug of spicy tea,
will leave us with thoughts of Thanks for such a wonderful Day,
a moist delicious turkey,
with a pecan pie for dessert
and an acorn place card to write our name on,
the wind can blow the leaves
and cause the acorns to fall!
We will all be safe
in the knowledge of
HAPPY THANKSGIVING DAY
