Thanksgiving Harvest Tablescape


Green Themed Thanksgiving Table w: Doodled Bench-Simply Gorgeous #green #decor #Thanksgiving



CorningWare & Corelle contacted me last week and asked if I would be interested in decorating our dining table with their products.

I instantly had flashbacks of when I was a little girl in the 1970’s.

My Mom & Dad had CorningWare baking dishes.

They used them almost every day, especially for Sunday dinner.

My Dad would cook his famous baked chicken in the large baking dish,

or his baked acorn squash in the smaller baking dishes.

40 years later, My Dad still has and uses these dishes.

I think I made my point.

So, in the letter, they also told me that if my tablescape was chosen as one of their favorites,

my local CorningWare & Corelle Store would “re-create” it in their store and feature my name as the designer.

Now, that really got my red head buzzing.

I texted my hubby and we planned a family trip to our local store.

I wanted something simple, yet elegant.

I also hoped for something a little less traditional, but perfect for Thanksgiving.

I chose the beautiful, white embossed “Boutique Cherish” Square Dinnerware Set.

They are light, durable, and I can use them every single day, not just Thanksgiving.

The square soup bowls are my favorite.

You may also notice the green beans in my new CorningWare Baking Dish.

The glass cover is perfect for the oven, or microwave.

We also purchased the gorgeous silver salt & pepper shakers you see.

Everyone at the store was very helpful when I had questions.

I even chatted with the gal at the register about my tablescape plan.

Beautiful Thanksgiving Table Decorated with Corelle Dishes & Corningware

Speaking of green.

As you probably noticed, I decided to go with a “green” theme for my “Thanksgiving Harvest Tablescape”.

I used a deep, rich green.  Green bean green I guess you could call it.

Not only did I use green ribbon to “wrap up” my new plates like a gift,

I also added some fresh green beans to the decor.

Apparently, we like green beans around here.

They even have a spot on my “Doodled Bench“.

(to make your own candle use a rubber band to secure your beans, and garnish with fresh cranberries)

Michigan provides many natural outdoor goodies this time of year, so I tried to keep the table decor as natural as possible.

I used fresh gourds, pumpkins, apples, leaves, pinecones, and even a few acorns.

Lastly, I baked you a fresh pumpkin pie.

Okay, maybe I baked it, from the freezer that is.

Sure did smell good.

Even Sylvia seems to enjoy the new dishes…

I wonder if she ever tried pumpkin pie?

    I love the Corningware dishes you chose!! The embossing is subtle yet elegant. We use our corning ware every day! Love! FYI: I tried to click the first link up top to check out their website but it seems to be broken? Anywho! Fingers crossed that I am a winner 😉

  2. Sandy Headtke says:

    Corelle® Boutique™ Cherish 42-Pc Square Dinnerware Set, these would fit in any occasion

  3. Doni says:

    I love the dishes you chose. I have always liked white because I can mix and match with other pieces I have. Love the entire table. I am confident I have a strong plan for Thanksgiving. Thanks for sharing your talents. 🙂

  4. Karen smith says:

    Love all the fall colors. Didnt know corelle came in the pretty pattern. Great job!

  5. I love dinnerware and being probably of the same generation as your parents, still have pieces that I use faithfully.

  6. DJ wright says:

    Love Corelle, have Corelle dishes and they are the only ones I have not broken. I still use mine everyday and they are 36 years old.

  7. Gina says:

    Gesh – I just love your house. It’s so gorgeous!

    What a great giveaway! I need to add to my dishes after my daughter dropped all my plates on the hardwood floor & they were no more.

  8. Yvonne says:

    Love the look! Combining the classic white with an unique shape of dinnerware with the “green” is beautiful. A story: someone I used to work with who had been married for 50 years gave me this advice about dinnerware and love. Men are like plates. Some are like china, pretty but when things get tough, will break. Look for the man who is like Corelle…handsome, but rugged and will stand the test of time.
    That’s what I love about Corelle…great patterns, but tough and in it for the long haul.

    Love, love, love the bench!

  9. Samantha says:

    What a gorgeous tablescape, I love the contrast of the green you chose against the red cranberries. I also love the Boutique Cherish Corelle dishes you chose, you can never go wrong with classic white.

  10. Julie, I am just positive your table is going to win! It is gorgeous! I’m not sure what I’d purchase if I won but I need some new white dishes and I love the ones you chose.

  11. Kristi Petrilla says:

    You are unbelievable, I am so proud to call you friend!

  12. barbara n says:

    I would add to my more pieces ot the FRENCH WHITE BAKEWARE SET

  13. Nikki says:

    I want some seasonal dishes. But probably a solid color that could be used in numerous ways.

  14. Diane says:

    I’ve always loved Corelle and you have really out done yourself on this one Julie! From the festive fall table to the cranberries you most certainly have made their product shine. Way to go RCD!!

  15. kristen mcclary says:

    i would get a serving try for the holidays i really need one know that i have a family and i am going to be the one they count on for thanksgiving dinner

  16. Eileen says:

    Beautiful table Julie! Simple, but bold and eye catching. Corning Glass is practically in my back yard. I’ve gone there several times. During the holidays you can make your own glass ornaments – such fun! You have certainly done a good job promoting their product.

  17. Samantha Lee says:

    Your table setting is beautiful! It is very crisp but still invites you to take a seat and share a few tales. I hope they choose your design.
    If I won the giveaway., I would probably purchase the Corelle Livingware Winter Frost White set. I’m currently using a mixture of Corelle Spring Blossom Green and Butterfly Gold dishes that I was given from my grandmother. Unfortunately, neither are a complete set so the Winter Frost set would allow me to to have a full table setting but still allow my grandmother’s dishes to shine.

  18. christine j says:

    I would love to get the Corelle Squares Simple Sketch 16-Piece Dinnerware Set

  19. I have solid white corelle plates and I thought I’d choose a color, but your white dishes are beautiful and classy! It would be a hard choice, but I’d have fun picking out a new design!

  20. Kari H says:

    I would love to own and use the Boutique™ Cherish 42-Pc Square Dinnerware Set…….can hope to win!! Beautiful table!!

  21. Peggy says:

    I would get the French Baking Set. I inherited my Mom- in-law’s set. I use it everyday. It is over 40 years old and looks beautiful! She was quite the collector of Correll.

  22. Kim H. says:

    Love the Boutique cherish square dinnerware set!

  23. liz gary says:

    Love the tablescape… very welcoming… I love white dishes. Would love to own them.

  24. Such a beautiful table setting Julie!! I want to come over for Thanksgiving!! 🙂
    Thanks for the giveaway! I would choose the Winter Frost White set and the 6 piece square bakeware set if I won! xo

  25. Bobbi Jo says:

    Now what I would do with the gift card is easy. I would follow your lead and buy the Correll Dinner wear you selected and treat my family to the beauty of Correll. xox

  26. Jane Powell says:

    I also would choose the Boutique Cherish. I’ve used the Corelle coordinates with the fruit border as my everyday dishes for years. So long that I don’t remember the name of them. The white would be a welcome change and as everyone has said, they coordinate with everything. Now that I’m older and have arthritis it is so nice to have the lighter weighing dishes that still look so beautiful and stylish.

  27. Valerie M says:

    Love the pattern you have on your table! So sleek and modern yet classic! Beautiful!

  28. Kim says:

    I’ve been wanting to try something in the Corelle square versions. Thanks for the opportunity!

  29. nicole dz says:

    I would buy the same set you used, the Corelle Boutique Cherish 16-Pc Square Dinnerware Set. So pretty!

  30. Jeannie says:

    I love the Boutique Cherish pattern and would definitely choose a set in that design, but I’d also choose salad or bread and butter plates in Sincerely Yours to coordinate. I’d also have to have some of those great oblong appetizer plates as well. I still have pieces of Corelle and Corning Ware I’ve had for years that I couldn’t do without.

  31. Cindy A. says:

    Thank you so much for offering such a wonderful giveaway! I would buy the Corelle Embossed Bella Faenza 16-Pc Dinnerware Set, EKCO Measuring Cup Set, and Lodge Logic Cast Iron 5-Pc Cookware Set.

  32. Ashley C says:

  34. Your table scape is gorgeous! I love everything about it from the ribbon tied about the plates to the beautiful centerpieces! Gorgeous!

  35. Liz says:

    I love the white on white dishes. I have some of the older white plates from years ago and love them still.

  36. Taramarie says:

  43. Bren says:

  46. Rose Burroughs says:

    I love what you did…the green beans are the best!!! You are amazing!

  47. Colette Piquet says:

  48. Tamika says:

    I would buy plates and bowls.

  49. Deb Harris says:

    What a beautiful table setting. I hope you win. I have Corelle dishes my sons bought for Christmas about 8 or 9 yrs. ago. If I didn’t I might choose the set you did, I really like that. I think I’d start with some of the newer-to me, Pyrex bakeware in red that I saw when I was in an outlet store. I have some Pyrex but just love this red. I can find many other things in there pretty easily! Thanks for the chance.

  50. amy guillaume linderman says:

    i would buy a whole complete set of dinner plates, salad plates, bowls, ….everything. all we have in our cupboard right now is a whole mess of mis-matched stuff. i can’t even set the table for 4 people with all the same pattern

  51. Maryse Malone says:

    Lovely and ingenious tablescapes. The dishes are elegant withoug being fussy.

  52. Laura m says:

  53. LaTanya says:

  54. Rust says:

    I love the white dishes you chose; they work so well with the potpourri of other colors and textures on your table. White is perfect for a starting layer.

  55. Rust says:

    I would buy some bread/load pans, a bundt pan, more baking supplies, and the Corningware® Etch™ Blue Cornflower 9.5″ Pie Plate.

  56. Sarah Beer says:

    I love their colorful baking collection. So fun!

  57. mercy says:

    This is the exact set I fell in love with at Kohls and I think that after 20 years I am due for a new set of matching dishes. Love your table scape it’s so perfect.

  58. kristin says:

    I have wanted a dutch oven FOREVER!!! Would love to have one of these! Your tablescape is beautiful Julie! xo

  59. Gina says:

  60. Dad says:

    Got a Corning ware large baking dish in Buffalo at AMA’s in the late 60s Still have some. paid $12.99 does the job real good. love, Dad

  61. Dianne says:

    This really brings back memories for me! When I was a young bride, Corning Ware was only sold in the jewelry store, and I registered pieces there, along with my chi
    china and silverware. It was, and still is, that special!! You have done a tremendous job of displaying their product. If I were to win, I would probably add to my French white collection.

  62. Rebekah says:

    I’ve had these dishes for years and am trying to throw a Christmas dinner party. I don’t have a good charger or placemat option. Are you using the larger plate as a charger? Also, what kind of charger goes with these square plates? I’m stumped.
