Getting Ready for Thanksgiving Dinner

Time to set the table.
 This year we'll be using my vintage Franciscan Apple dishes - an anniversary gift in September from Don, for our 52nd anniversary.

 Crystal apple bowls complete the setting.
 Shiny silver serving spoons - see previous post for how to get your silver back to sparkling without the hours of polishing.

 A lovely apple teapot - from my collection - goes perfectly with the Franciscan Apple dishes
And crystal apple serving dishes.
 And some helpers to get the table ready - Sally Jo is arranging the silverware
 Abby likes to help with getting things in just the right order
Kyla and Poppy share their chores
 Donnie - don't sit on the plates!!!
 But the girls were standing on the table!
I'm ready for some Thanksgiving food

 Setting up for the dessert buffet - plans are afoot for pumpkin custard, cranberry nut bread, pecan tarts and sugar cookies.  What is your favorite Thanksgiving dessert?

And now, back to preparations, next is baking the pecan tarts and frosting the cookies.
Happy Thanksgiving from all the gang - and the little plate sitter.
