Thanksgiving Buffet Table

Hello, dear friends!
Thanksgiving is just a few short days away, and I am sure everyone is busy with last minute preparations.

This is my most favorite time of the year. I love having family and friends over for the holidays, sharing meals, and creating memories. It is the start of the holiday season!

I love entertaining, and this is the time of the year when I have lots of fun playing with dishes, tablesetting, cooking, and celebrating the blessings in our life!   

I used gold foil for the gilded mini pumpkins.

Apply foil adhesive on the top part of the pumpkin with a small sponge brush.
Next, press the gold foil side down on top of the pumpkin, tapping gently with the sponge brush.
Then, slowly peel away the wax-paper backing, and in the end you will have a beautifully gilded mini pumpkin. 
It can used as a place card holder or simply as a pretty accent at your table.

In keeping with the fall color theme, I used mostly white dishes to set my buffet table and autumn colors as accent through out the table.

I stacked the amber glass compotes and housed them under an over-sized glass cloche.

The ceramic utensil caddies keep the flatware nicely organized

I don't know why, but everything always looks so pretty when it's under a cloche.

I used the gold painted pumpkins as a flower vase and as accents in my tablescape.

Love how they turned out and how they add a touch of glam to my Thanksgiving tablescape.

Wishing you and your family a safe and joyful Thanksgiving!
