We are down to the wire with Thanksgiving plans since the big day is tomorrow. I am not hosting Thanksgiving, but I have still had tablescapes on the brain. If you have yet to figure out what your table will look like tomorrow, I figured I would go ahead and share my super quick, use what I had Thanksgiving tablescape. I didn't buy a single thing, and it took me about 10 minutes. You still have time! With Christmas decorations making their way up from storage, I put my fall decor to use one last time.
Our house doesn't have hardly any traditional fall colors in my everyday decorations. Most things are grays and blues and greens, so I decided to keep that theme throughout the table decor while adding hints of whimsical Fall themed elements for a Thanksgiving feel.
The table runner was made from the same fabric as my chevron chairs and accent pillows. I still have loads of that fabric leftover, and my mom made this runner for me before I had a sewing machine of my own. In the center of the table, fall bottle vases, mini tiger pumpkins, and candles are offset around a gorgeous silver bowl with iridescent pearl interior filled with scented pinecones. One of my favorite things to do is add vintage books to a vignette. For the place settings, I layered our Lenox French Perle dishes from dinner plate, appetizer plate, and finally my set of blue dessert dishes. No two are alike. I added in a dark gray napkin underneath the dessert plate, and on top a glittery pinecone. I collected these pinecones at the park near my office, baked them, and sprayed them with silver glitter. Keep an eye out for them to make a second appearance in the form of Christmas ornaments. Now I wish we actually were having Thanksgiving at our house. It was so much fun setting the table; imagine the fun if I added a Turkey to the mix! P.S. Thanks for sticking with me in my quiet November blogging month. We have been so busy and out of town every day I wasn't working, so the blog has suffered. But life is more important anyway! Stay tuned for lots of Christmas posts to come. Last night we put up the tree. We only got this far.
Oh well. To be continued.
