Have you started planning for Thanksgiving yet? I like to get an early start because it means I’ll be less stressed as the holiday draws nearer. This week I’m joining a lovely group of bloggers to share inspirational table settings; it’s part of the Styled + Set series organized by Lory at Designthusiasm. My dining creation is called the Golden Autumn Days Table Setting. You’ll notice the tablescape has a golden glow about it. A big welcome to those of you joining me from French Garden House!

The golden leaves on the table are from our towering maple tree at the end of our driveway. It seems to take forever before all the leaves drop and we wait to rake the yard until the tree has purged itself of all its leaves.
My regular readers know that I recently (and finally) found a new farmhouse dining table! I decided to get a new set of white dishes too, found on clearance at World Market. I couldn’t decide on a napkin color so I opted to pair red henna napkins and golden yellow napkins for this year’s Thanksgiving table, alternating them at each place setting.

Candlelight is a must for holiday dining. The glow of flickering flames creates a special ambiance.
Tall candle holders made in Spain of recycled glass pair with shorter pressed glass candle sticks. The bamboo script mat underfoot is perfect for a dining room. Food spills wipe up easily and don’t stain the mat.
My new dining table from Wayfair has three leaves; in this photo we’ve only added one leaf. At full extension, it’s 11 feet long. My new chandelier is sitting in a box waiting for my hubby to install it – hopefully this weekend.

Each guest can keep the Baby Boos tucked in their bowls with a golden maple leaf.
Pressed glassware in amber tones are from World Market.
Danieli flatware is also from World Market.

As the day comes to a close, the candles provide soft lighting for my Golden Autumn Days table setting.
Dining at dusk always feels warm and cozy to me.
My farmhouse dining table and new dinnerware are ready for my family on Thanksgiving day. Everyone will be here and I’m really looking forward to the holiday.
Here’s a beautiful Autumn Song by Van Morrison. I hope you’ll give it a listen. I think you’ll enjoy it!
