Displaying Gratitude part 2

In assembling Thanksgiving tablescapes, I played quite a bit with my elements.  I used my fabric pumpkin, and pulled out a cornucopia I had. I filled it with sunflowers from another arrangement and really liked the look of it.  A smaller birdhouse filled in an empty spot, and a lime green candle provided a pop of complementary cool color. I really like this grouping.

Really digging that green with the bright orange colors and the dark yellow of the sunflowers. It was somewhat of a whim to include it, too.

I changed out the sunflower cornucopia for a fabric turkey I've owned for years. It was purchased for about $5 at Big Lots several years ago, and I've just always liked him. He's a primitive rag stuffed gobbler, who always warms my heart when he gets pulled out. I had a close-up of him, but I guess I didn't load it.

Hopefully everyone is right on schedule with their Thanksgiving Day preparations.  I'm linking up with Marty for Tablescape Tuesday at A Stroll Thru Life.  I am also joining Cindy at My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday.

Looking good, Jane. I like the green candle there, too. Adds an unexpected touch.
