A Thanksgiving Table With Gourds and Birds

Thanksgiving is soon upon us.  We have so many things to be thankful for.

My last tablescape for this season is birds and gourds and of course pumpkins. These charming bird plates I found years ago. I like they can be used for the different seasons. The bird napkin rings tie in nicely with this theme.
I love these pretty copper gourds.  They come in copper and gold and can be found at Safeway.  I am sure by now, they are marked down for clearance, making way for Christmas decor.
I am using the burlap bags to hold the flatware.  I dressed them for the season.  in the past, I made homemade caramels and gave them away as  dinner party favors.
The two tall crystal candle holders, I also dressed with autumn candle rings and birch battery candles.
A lovely autumn table runner dresses the table nicely and makes a great base for all of the decor to create a lovely centerpiece.
