I finally decided how I wanted to set my Thanksgiving table. I am setting six place settings not sure how many guests we'll have. I am sure I will have to either add more or possibly remove some.  I like to get a head start on setting everything up so I have more time to enjoy baking and preparing our traditional favorites.

I wanted to use my Juliska in the Flint pattern. I love this color for autumn and Thanksgiving. I have been purchasing a few pieces here and there as I found them marked down. I have a few pieces of blue, so I am using those as well. 

For my centerpiece I wanted use what I have so I  my collection of velvet pumpkins was an easy choice. Cascading out of one of my favorite blue containers all this centerpiece needed was to add  a little faux fall foliage. 

I sprinkled in a few acorn ornaments

Napkins are natural linen from Pottery Barn  

The charger is Juliska Main House

Hammered look glass charger

Dinner plate is Main House

Salad plate 
The Conservatory

On the side board the large urn, medium pitcher and small urn.

If you are still here, thank you! I hope you will leave a comment, it's the only way I know you stopped by.


  1. Emily, your table is very inviting and I love the addition of your favorite blue containers. I am torn between using a tablecloth on my table this year, and showing the beautiful wood. Will you add a cloth? Happy Thanksgiving to you and Jim. xo

    1. Deb, I love using tablecloths but for Thanksgiving I love letting the cherrywood show. I will dress up the table with a solid white cloth for Christmas. It is a hard decision and I'm sure which you decide to do it be beautiful.

  2. Emily, I like your blue and grey combo with the festive orange centerpiece highlights! I only have red and oranges in the Country Estate Juliska dishes, and I'll probably use the orange for either breakfast or dessert. I recently used the orange for a fall dinner with friends. I love this pattern, with all the structures and the little details which differ on each piece. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family! They will all appreciate this beautiful table. Linda

  3. Beautiful collection of the Juliska, Emily. However many are gathered round your table, I hope your Thanksgiving is a joyful time with family. xo

  4. Coucou Emily, je suis admirative de ta table de Thanksgiving ! Quelle belle décoration !
    Tu as eu raison de mettre en valeur ta table sans nappe, tout est en harmonie, ta vaisselle est vraiment magnifique ainsi que ce centre de table avec tes magnifiques citrouilles en velours, j'adore !
    Noël va vite arriver, je te souhaite de bons préparatifs de cette fête que nous aimons tant.
    Gros bisous,

  5. Your table is lovely! I like the pumpkins scattered about and that blue and white centerpiece. Love the dish stack. I’m sure dining at your table will be a very nice experience! Happy Thanksgiving!

  6. Oh la la Emily, your table is gorgeous! I love the mix of blue and brown Juliska and those wonderful velvet pumpkins spilling out of the centerpiece! Whoever is lucky enough to dine with you will feel very special indeed, this is so elegant!

  7. Emily, your guests will feel welcomed and special dining at this table. I hope you have a table full of family and friends. M and I talked about Thanksgiving yesterday. I hope to set a table for two and have him there, but where we fine, our hearts will be full of gratitude.
    You know we are twins in so many ways. The Juluska Manor House is still a favorite in any color. Your table looks gorgeous! Happy Thanksgiving!

  8. Oh! I needed to see this!!! For the first time in years, I'm hosting Thanksgiving and I love it so much! Thanks for the beautiful ideas and a place to focus. And happy Thanksgiving to you.

  9. I always love seeing your Juliska dishes, Emily! You’ve set such a beautiful table with a pretty centerpiece of your velvet pumpkins and faux Fall additions. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your guests!

  10. You have such a flair for setting a lovely and welcoming table - these dishes are so unique and unfamiliar to me. Hope you enjoy Thanksgiving! We are off to Virginia for a week

  11. I love seeing a pretty table. You chose well!!

  12. I love all the orange pumpkins, offset by the occasional green or tan pumpkin. The colors and texture of the pumpkins really stand out against the predominantly neutral plates and table. Lovely!

  13. Wow, Emily your table is beautiful! I adore your Juliska dishes. They are gorgeous. The napkins are so elegant and your velvet pumpkins and lovely blue and white urn are all so pretty. Pretty faux fall leaves and acorn make your table so festive.
    I wish you and your family a lovely Thanksgiving.

  14. Oh Emily, this is just gorgeous. I've never seen this pattern. I can see why you were drawn to it, for it is very beautiful. And I really do love how the soft colors work so well for Thanksgiving. The velvet pumpkins are the perfect touch for a warm but very elegant table. I send you all good wishes for a beautiful Thanksgiving. I know your family and guests will be well cared for.

    On another note, I'm making your veggie soup today, I think! Can't wait!

  15. Such pretty china, Emily. Perfect for the season.

  16. In a word or two - Soooo pretty.
    Happy Thanksgiving.
