Y’all, I can’t believe Thanksgiving is TWO weeks away!! I wanted to get my tablescape up on the blog ASAP so you guys would have enough time to order festive goodies for your home.
This year I purchased a bunch of new items for my centerpiece and I’m excited to share with y’all! As you can see, it’s pretty neutral, mixing in a few gold touches. My most favorite new addition is the craft paper and calligraphy table runner. It says, “eat drink and be thankful”. How perfect is that!? I found it along with my cute name cards over on Etsy. I really can’t say enough good things about Etsy. I find SO many gems for the holidays. Just wait ’till Christmas, boos! 😉
After placing the runner in the middle of the table, I added two strands of white berry garland. This is a great way to fill out the table and make it look festive. Next up, I placed mercury glasses and gold candle sticks in the empty spots. My mom taught me very early on that lighting was everything, especially when entertaining. Having real flames on a table is always a beautiful touch. Lastly I added in a few natural pine cones that I had ordered on Amazon. The centerpiece turned out gorg and yet, it was super easy! Give it a go, boos!
I went for a more festive Thanksgiving place setting this year as I got plates just for the occasion. I am obsessed with the fall pumpkin/squash plates a la Williams Sonoma! They are on SALE – check them out here; they also come in a black pattern. My SPLURGE worthy item on this table, are my new wood chargers. I shared them on my Instagram story a few days ago and y’all loved them. I’m right there with ya. I’ve been wanting these babies for years, and finally pulled the trigger. I plan to use them for my country Christmas table and throughout winter. They are SO worth it. Now that I have my place setting foundation, charger and plate, I utilized my everyday gold flatware, neutral farmhouse napkins, mason jars and champagne glasses.
The last and final touch of the table were the pumpkin place card holders. I had the best time making these beauties. It was a quick and easy DIY…
 Set cardboard and/or newspaper on the ground (preferably outside) and place mini pumpkins on top.
 Put on kitchen gloves, shake the flat white can and begin to spray pumpkins.
 Let the top of the pumpkins dry for 5 min (or until dry) and then flip them over and repeat step 2 on bottom.
 Once dried, bring inside. With a sharp knife cut an sliver on top of the mini pumpkin – 2/3 of the way back. Make sure it’s big enough for a name tag to slide in (see images).
Alright, babes… I’m ready to EAT! Shop all of the table items below. Happy Thanksgiving!
