I'm so happy I get the fun experience of introducing you to a few of my friends and their creative tables today! And thanks, Taylor, for pulling us together!
I'm starting with my own Thanksgiving table, and then I'll point you toward a few other fantastic tablescapes.
Actually, this is my first attempt at a tablescape, and I loved trying something new!
I wanted to use blues and greens since I have a lot of both, and since that was my pumpkin color theme throughout this fall. For a touch of warmth, I started the whole centerpiece with a copper kettle and two copper mugs. I set the kettle on a cake stand, and the mugs on two mini cake stands on each side.
Pumpkins of different sizes and colors are spread down the center of the table, and then I filled the open spots with dusty miller stems and heather picks. All of these florals are from Michael's over the years. It's no secret that I'm crazy about Michael's faux florals!
I've been observing others' tablescapes for a while, and one thing I've noticed is, when it comes to place settings, it's all about layers. I wanted to use only what I had on hand, but I did cave and buy these woven placemats from Ikea. I've been wanting them for a while, so I finally gave myself permission to get some, and they'll get a lot of mileage. I love the texture!
A couple of years ago, my mom gave me her old rustic green plates, which I had been eyeing for years. And the "napkins" are actually dish towels from Ikea. I love those 4-packs of basic dish towels they sell with green or blue stripes, and I thought they'd tie in with my pumpkin colors.
These faux mums are also from Michael's floral department, along with some of the blue and green pumpkins. Over the past few years, they've really upped their game when it comes to the fake stuff!
Last but not least, I added a small ceramic pumpkin to each place setting. Oh, I guess these are new too since they're the ones from the Target dollar spot this fall. They originally had gold stems, and even though gold is trending, it's just not my thing. So I had painted the stems different shades of brown back in September.
I'd say this table is ready for our bacon wrapped turkey!
This was a fun experiment for me and I see more tablescapes in my future! But first...
