Robert !Thank you so much, & the same to you!

Our family will celebrate on Saturday since some of us were working today.

Yes, I will pull out the stops & put out the "good stuff",
however I still have difficulty posting pictures. Just imagine Lenox Jefferson china & a wonderful mix of sterling silver serving pieces, many with gold accents .

Oh BTW Three of the flatware pieces I always use are posted on the forum by way of a gracious member who posted for me is my Chawner/George Adams set pattern name is Canova. I think if you do a search on the forum you will find a picture of those pieces!

I also would like to extend a Happy Thanksgiving to all the members of the Forum!

Hope you had a thankful day with your family!

Our family got together at one of our daughter's home for Thanksgiving. Chocolate, either in the form of a turkey or a lollipop, was a hit item with children and adults.

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and will have a wonderful holiday season.

Hi outwest!

Beautiful, very inviting & comfortable.

Love your dog, what kind is it?

Is the china Tiffany?

Hi ahwt!

You too, love the lollipop touch as well.

Is the china Belleek or Spode?

Very cute dog Outwest. Love the hat! Did he wear it long?

What silver and china did you use?

And love how you mixed your flatware AHWT. What patterns did you use? Really like the chocolate lollipops too.

My daughter has Nantucket by Wedgwood and around the plates is Francis I by Reed and Barton, a fern pattern that I think came from Pottery Barn and a Fiddle pattern by various makers. Actually some place settings had all Francis I, but there were too many for everyone to get Francis I – perhaps her parents need to help fill this pattern out. However it is fun to mix.

The lollipops came from a St. Louis candy store that has sold them for as long as I can remember. When we took the children antiquing in the Central West End their favorite treat was usually a chocolate lollipop. Now they sell them online so they were easy to send to my daughter.

I should add that it was her eldest daughter that so artfully arranged the lollipops on the plates.

The photos are lovely-I love to see what others do for holiday decoration. Our Thanksgiving was small and quiet-just my husband and me due to last minute change in plans-so no big table spreads. But I did decide to use my Irish stuffing spoon (William Cullen 1766) to take the stuffing from my turkey. Works just like it is supposed to!

I used my macaroni/entree server and was really surprised at how well it worked with the mac and cheese. It was better than using a serving spoon. I have always thought that some of the serving pieces were just a way for the manufacturers to sell more but they do seem to work well.

Hello again ahwt!

Thank you for your answer re the china.
I thought it was Wedgwood but my friend was adamant about it being Spode or Belleek! Can't wait to tell her! In the future I'll listen to me first!

Re filling in the silverware my other friend does it for her children for holidays, birthdays, & anniversaries! It could be a place setting or a serving piece etc.
Myself, I love mix & match!

Outwest the dog? A greyhound lady, 50 - 55 lbs ?? She is lovely and if he's a he I beg his pardon!

Everyone else, thank you I was in Montreal and had Vietnamese Pho with chop sticks and a porcelain spoon so it was nice to see proper tables set so well.

I'll pass on the silver, but love the dog! It would have to be a whippet wouldn't it?
Well known as the world's most adorable dog...

Big whippet or small greyhound - I'll bet on the greyhound!

We have had both and at the same time and they are the sweetest animals. Dogless now and the kids in college so we are FREE!

P.S. if she tires of dressing up we will take her...

Great pictures! While not a Thanksgiving table, here is a my table set for brunch for a friend's birthday on 11/28. I think it is a great idea for all of us to share more silver in situ so to speak and being used.

Happy Holidays!

Nautilusjv’s idea of sharing pictures of silver as we use it (hopefully in an artful setting) is a great idea. Nautilusjv’s use certainly was artful.

My wife brought the stars and numbers below for the U.S. Bicentennial year and also brought enough extra numbers to change from year to year. The stars and numbers are made of silver glass glitter. The silver does tarnish from year to year and as you can see number one is still quite shiny as we have not used that number nearly as often as the others. Actually I think we may have brought several number ones, so that may be the first year for this one.

I believe the silver glass glitter was made in Germany, but I have no idea how it was made.

My wish for Happy Holidays for all and may everyone have a great and wonderful 2010.

nautilusjv,
Lovely brunch table. What is the flatware pattern that you used? Although I can not see much detail the ends of the knife handles seem quite decorative and unusual.

The knives are Alvin Majestic which have a lovely chrysanthemum design. The forks were Whiting Imperial Queen as were the teaspoons in the spooner.

Thanks for the update. I have had the pleasure of examining a friend's 400+ piece service of Majestic. The various motifs are stunning especially on the hollow handled pieces like the knives. His is not an assembled set but rather from a Pittsburgh, PA heiress. It is kept in its two, original 4-drawer oak chests. Thanks for sharing.

Hello Everyone, I'm brand new to the forum and relatively new to the world of silver. I don't have any questions at this point. I just wanted to say "hi" and introduce myself briefly. I will post again soon with more details about myself and my very modest silver collection.
At this point, I am enjoying reading
your posts, particularly photos of your Thanksgiving tables and the beautiful greyhound pilgrim.
