A Turkey Transferware Mix~n~Match Thanksgiving Tablescape

We will be having Thanksgiving dinner at my brother in law's house this year but I decided to set a table at home for a meal and mix it all up with a different turkey plate at each setting.   I laid out a plaid blanket over the table in lieu of a tablecloth. Our dining table is narrow so a centerpiece can sometimes be challenging.  I created this with things from around the house; bark tree shaped candles, two floral sprays, a bundle of wheat, pheasant feathers, silk roses, twigs and pinecones we gathered on one of our trips.  It was kept pretty simple and neutrally colored because the plates and blanket are so colorful and I didn't want it to be too much. I mixed new and old flatware; vintage bakelite stag horn handled steak knives and new Cambridge with deer on each of the handles. I'm off to make my corn and onion casserole  and some pies for Thanksgiving Day. I hope you have a blessed day with your families and friends. Happy
