Thanksgiving tablescape ideas! Who's cookin?

I know many of my friends and readers host 
Thanksgiving dinner at their homes, including myself.
 I thought I would look for some Thanksgiving tablescape ideas/inspiration for us all.

{That's so yummy (source)}

LOVE this tablecloth!

Ok, so I think I may take a little from each inspiration and come up with my own!

How about you?
 You hosting this year?
oh and who still bakes a home made apple pie?

Oh, lovely ideas! I love the little pumpkins hanging on twigs centerpiece, just too pretty. I will have to see more for next year as I already posted what my tablescape is going to look like see, I'm decking halls for Christmas already and I don't want to post a Tksgiving table with a Christmas home. Thank you for sharing and hope you come over and visit. Have a great weekend. FABBY

I love the first tablecloth, too! My mom cooks and yes she still makes all her pies from scratch. We get to show up with drinks! Not a bad deal :)

Australians don't celebrate Thanksgiving and I think it's a real shame. That's why I always have a Thanksgiving dinner at my place for my family and I cook a turkey with all the trimmings and I make a sweet potato pie. I love your tablescape ideas and might try to incorporate some of them this year!

Best wishes,

I am loving that fireplace in the first photo! I will have Thanksgiving here for just us, the kids and Mom and Dad, so not a big dinner, but no apple pie, but an apple cake with warm caramel sauce!

I hate to admit it but even though I baked a lot when my kids were young, I've never baked a pie. Those are great ideas, maybe I'll borrow a couple.

I think that first one is fabulous!!! I am not hosting this year. We are headed to Tom's mom's. I am excited, but just found out that my loser BIL and SIL are taking their kids to the beach with their best friends. It makes me sad as we won't be there for Christmas since we will be at my family's. Well, it is their loss! Thanks for letting me vent!! Ha!

I used to make homemade pumpkin pie every year, but now I make pumpkin dump cake which is to DIE for!!!!

Hi Deb! Lovely photos, full of inspiration. We can't get enough.
I am not sure what we are doing this year for Thanksgiving. Maybe go to my cousin's house. Talking about homemade Apple pie, I just made 4 little Apple pies and 4 chocolate pies. We are going out for dinner tonight...I thought I would serve the pies for dessert. Enjoy the week-end. Linda

LOVE that tablecloth. My daughter and I are cooking at our other daughter's house because she will have a new baby at home. Then some of us will drive home for dinner here the next day. I think it is going to be a rushed holiday for us! xo Diana

My family takes turns hosting and this year it is my sisters turn. I hosted last year, so now I get a break. yay! now that my neices and nephews are getting older, they will be joining in to host in the future too. i'm sure Kim will be posting her tablescapes for this year's Thanksgiving. I look forward to seeing what she'll come up with.

I do Thanksgiving every year and sometimes dessert, too. I do love it, it's all about creating memories!

Thanks for sharing the pictures...Thanksgiving is starting to look rustic, the way it should...the Pilgrims surely had a simple table!!

Yes, I still make apple pie, it's my favorite! I use a recipe from Paula Deen. It's SO good!!

Have a great weekend, Debbie!

I'm cooking for 12 adults and 2 kids. My brother is bringing the desserts, though. My hubby makes an almost homemade apple pie. He uses a store bought bottom crust sometimes. It's been awhile.

Great tablescape ideas Debbie. I have to confess, I haven't had to host for many years. A ton of us meet up at my brother-in-laws house. He and his wife are great hosts. We just have to bring a dessert.

great ideas, love the branches and hanging pumpkins! I'm hosting and always looking for a way to dress up the table:) thanks for the ideas!

Me! I'm cooking.

I'm still gathering ideas, so thanks for the inspiration!

And yes, we still bake our own apple pie. My mom, sisters & I (my daughter now too) always get together & crank out the homemade pies. Apple, pumpkin, chocolate are a given & sometimes we'll throw in something different like coconut, banana, or pecan.

Lots of pie here on a scarily regular basis. Love that linen tablecloth.

Beautiful inspirations! I will also be hosting Thanksgiving again at my house. My family of 7 plus my parents and my niece who lives with them. This year is going to be even more special because my dad if very ill with Cancer so we are making sure it will be one to remember.

I make all the food...turkey, all the sides..lasagna and desserts. I haven't mastered our families apple pie so I buy Mrs. Smith's but I can make a mean Pumpkin Pie!

Im working on Christmas in the living room and the tree, but still leaving room in the dining room for our Thanksgiving tablescape.

Great inspiration pictures. My table is too small for much of a tablescape though. Also my house is small so one of my four daughters will host Thanksgiving. Another daughter will make homemade pumpkin and apple pies. I'm spoiled. :0)

I bought myself just the right table with just the right wing chairs so we would have enough room for our growing family.Then my newly married son asked if they could cook dinner for us and our daughters at the home of his wife's parents since his wife's father has had a stroke; it would be easier for them.I have cooked the dinner for years and we are planning to cook a back-up dinner the Saturday after...just so my dear hubby can enjoy the leftovers! I must adapt as the kids grow older, but it isn't always easy.

I'm hosting this year! And yes, we make home made pies, crust and all!!! We actually have "Pie Day" the day before Thanksgiving in my family! It's practically a holiday of 4 generations gathering at my aunts home to make pies!

Thanks for all the inspirational photos! I still don't know which dishes to use!!! LOL!!!

They pay me not to cook. It's a pretty lucrative deal and a win-win situation! They don't die of food poisoning and I have extra folding cash!

Beautiful inspiration photos! I've never been one to decorate the table--too many little kids at our Thanksgivings--but I'd sure LIKE to. I will be cooking this year, with help from family. I like to do it. And our traditional pies are homemade pumpkin and pecan!

They are all lovely!! I am cooking and hosting ..up to 18 people so far and could be more. Slightly freaking out even though everyone will bring something..still a lot of work. I have no idea what I'll do on the tables, I better get that done early! Thanks Debbie!

I love that first table, Debbie. Many times I have thought of moving the big farmhouse table into the hearth room,just for a special day. May just do it for Thanksgiving, which for us is the Sunday before. I think it would be a nice surprise for my kids.:-)

I don't remember the last time I made a homemade apple pie.

Thanks for sharing such pretty pictures! I am not hosting this year, but I will certainly be cooking with my sister as we gather at my dad's house. We do not have apple or pumpkin pie though... our traditions include homemade pecan pie, chocolate pie and chess pie! All of them or so yummy and fattening!!
