Table Settings Part 1~ Formal to Informal Settings

This week I thought I would approach the art of table settings since Thanksgiving and Christmas are the 2 most popular times to have a large sit down dinner. I hope you enjoy the variety of information and eye candy that I have gathered and I sure hope every single person learns at least one thing!

To Start off ~ here are some beautiful table settings from Formal to Informal for a Thanksgiving/Fall dinner.





TODAY'S TABLE SETTING TRIVIA:
Did you know that the importance of meals in the Judeo-Christian tradition contributed significantly to the development of the tablecloth?

Now THIS is what I like to see! Makes me feel like the weather is cooling off already! lol
All of those table settings are beautiful. I bought a few autumn things when I was in OKC this past weekend. Can't wait to use them. Of course, after looking at these place settings, I'm wishing I'd bought more of this one particular thing - they would make fantastic napkin rings, but I only bought 3, thinking I'd add them to a wreath. And sense I have no pictures to show you right now, you probably have NO idea what I'm jabbering about, huh? Ah well, I'll just hush it up and go back to enjoying your pictures. Thanks for posting them.

I absolutely love doing tablesettings! I am a dish fanatic! I really need to go through and see about selling some of my dishes at our sale, but it's so hard to give them up, because I have so much fun "playing" with all those bits and pieces of china and crockery!

Loved this post. Those photos are gorgeous! I'm looking forward to seeing more!
