Oh hey, November!! Can y’all believe it?! It’s almost time for Thanksgiving and for me, a BABY!! Ahhhhh 🙂 This year I wanted to create a neutral, simple table for Turkey day including a lot of DEALS! You don’t need to spend a lot of moolah to make a beautiful space. I used a bunch of items I already had and paired them with some new beauties.
First things first when styling a table, the centerpiece, and specifically, a runner! I used the same “eat, drink and be thankful” gem I purchased last year! I first placed this in the the center of the table and styled from there. Next up I added two white berry garlands (on sale), down the middle of the runner. I then placed bigger items in between the berries for height: jars filled with dried pampas at both ends, two black lanterns ($13!) with a single white pumpkin inside and 8 multiple level black candle sticks in the center. These items really created a modern farmhouse look! I finished off the centerpiece with what I call, filling. You could use any smaller decor items of your choice. I decided to use small plastic white and knit pumpkins as well as antlers I already had. It was the perfect country touch!
Now it was time for the place setting! Again, I used items I already had and paired them with a few new Thanksgiving pieces including, my small “thankful” and “grateful” app plates and “thankful” napkins. These two are great festive touches to really elevate your table. When it comes to a place setting, I always start with a charger. It is not only a great design element, but it also is a dedicated space for each guest at the table. I used my sliced wood chargers, which I have had for years. These are a great investment item! I then styled out the rest of the setting in this order: napkin with the “thankful” showing, cement dinner plate, festive app plate and name card attached to dried grass. The personal touch is always a-must when entertaining. It makes your guests feel special! 🙂 For glasses, I utilized my everyday mason jars and fun gold flutes. I finally set the table with one last item, my new DEAL gold flatware ($29 for a 4 settings), adding a fun metallic touch to tie in the creams on the table and gold candles. Overall the table feels very farmhouse with a modern touch.
