Not the Thanksgiving the Puritans ob
served, with their wild tui'key and simple
appointments, but a modern day of thank
fulness and feasting, enhanced by a tabic
setting of Colonial Silver, so much in
vogue at the present time.
The importance of having one's table appoint
ments in thorough keeping with the dinner served,
should not be overlooked.
A jPretty Table Pleasures of The Day
The simplicity of outline and the refinement of decoration, found in the
new Colonial designs of Silver, so fittingly mark an occasion of this kind.
Handsome Hollow Ware; a complete service of Spoons, Forks and
Fancy Serving Pieces; a good set of Carvers; with pretty Cut Glassware
all tend to make the day one of the happy events of the year.
