Can you believe it’s just a few weeks until Thanksgiving? After putting away Halloween I was happy to start decorating for late Fall. Today I’m putting a little Thanksgiving into the entranceway with some flowers, candles and a turkey. It looks quite magical in candlelight. Welcome, Friends, come in and stay awhile.

Three large, wooden, pillar candlesticks with cream and brown candles rest on an off-white organdy embroidered runner. Just a few pieces can make a lovely first impression on Friends and Family as you welcome them in from the cold outdoors.

You get a better look at the candlesticks in this picture. Some lovely metal embellishments add charm to the wooden candlesticks. They are similar to the flower shapes in the runner. I love that the heights are varied adding more interest to the vignette. I also love that everything is thrifted. Such fun to welcome you with thrifted treasures.

The flowers add texture as well as color to the sideboard. It’s a simple grouping but says “Welcome Thanksgiving” to me.

Here’s a closer look at Mr. Turkey. He is made of metal and wood and looks like he has a twinkle in his eye. He’s a friendly sort and is happy to be on the greeting committee.

Candlelight reflected in a mirror adds additional light to the entranceway. Candles, flowers and a friendly turkey welcome guests with softness and a touch of whimsy. I’m delighted to welcome you, today and hope you enjoyed your visit.

  1. Lovely! The candlesticks are gorgeous. Your runner looks so delicate and that Turkey is so cute!

  2. Love that mixed material turkey – so quirky & cute. It fits right in with the mixed material candlesticks, too! Clever.

  3. I always love candlelight reflected in a mirror; it’s a trick I use when when the power goes out during Maine winter storms! I really enjoy how interesting yet restful your vignettes are; you surely have a talent that escapes most of us!

  4. Does the turkey have a ‘ twinkle in his eye’, because he knows he will not be on the menu? I have really enjoyed finding your blog, and a like minded thriftaholic-haha


  5. That’s just lovely Lynne! Your candles and flower arrangement are a beautiful complement to Mr Turkey! 🙂 I’d definitely feel welcome coming through your door! Hope you have a lovely weekend!
