Silver for Thanksgiving

Rough Elegance
Isn't this just the perfect Thankgiving table?
I love the mix of the antique chandelier with the rustic table just off a dreamy white kitchen.
This would be the perfect silverware for the above setting.
And a sideboard filled with this.
I can't get enough of silver trays.
Which reminds me back this summer before my life went haywire,
I'd just bought a new silver tray for the kitchen and I've never shown it in its spot.
I have held off on showing it because I made the silver tray spice rack
see below...
but I've been searching for the perfect spice bottles and I finally found 
them last night! 
So upcoming post very soon with my new tray and my spice rack full of it's new bottles.
In the meantime....

This post is so lovely, Nita. I cannot wait to see what your spice bottles look like. I know they will look pretty on the spice rack (which is too cool, by the way). I love the Mad Men post, too. By the way, Bryan Batt is a friend of my husband's....He owns the neatest store in New Orleans called Hazelnut (you would looooove it) and he just wrote a book called Big Easy Style.

Ricki Jill -
I'm hoping Bryan Batt will show up again on the show. His book is on my wishlist on Amazon. Oh...I want to make a trip to New Orleans so bad. I haven't been there in a thousand years, Last time I was there I enjoyed the antique shops, the cemeteries and the Garden District the most.

I just love the silver--unmatched and old--just beautiful

Cindy said...

I am with you when it comes to silver anything, I love it! I think that is what I will try to highlight in my Christmas decor, the silver and white with red thrown in for color. I look forward to seeing how you decorate for Christmas, you are so creative.
I LOVE the three images that you posted today, I LOVE that look, the "Rough-Lux" is just so delicious!!!
Have a good evening.
Love and hugs, Cindy

Hi Nita, love silver and its always in style in my book. Its a nice departure from all the gold you typically see during the holidays, beautiful post!

I love the combination of rustic and elegant. Nice post

Sheila Irwin said...

Where are the photos of the table and silver tray wall from? When I click on the "source" link below each one it doesn't go anywhere (says "can't find server"). I'm wondering if you can tell me where you got the tablescape photo and the photo with the silver trays on the wall. Thanks!

Sorry...I messed up the links when I created the post. I've fixed now. Silver trays is from Pottery Barn via Pinterest. The tablescape is from Debra's Common Ground via Pinterest.

The thanksgiving table is indeed a roughly elegant piece that I love love love! I never thought that roughness and elegance can be a perfect match Nita.

Reno and Reorganization said...

How did you put the little shelf in that silver piece for spice bottles?

Teresa said...

All divine- love the farm table dressed for fall.
Have a wonderful day

Tammy @BeatriceBanks said...

I love the silver mixed in with the warmth of autumn colors. So pretty! I'll write you later to update you on the OKC weekend.
Hugs,

Nita, I love your spice racks! I hope you'll share how you made them. I think the perfect little spice bottles will really finish off your project to perfection! Love all the photos you shared, especially that first table.
