Y'all, I love Thanksgiving, and I love planning out every detail then enjoying the wonderful food and good company. I am so excited to not only show you my Thanksgiving table setting, but also link up with 18 other bloggers so you have tons of inspiration.
If you're coming over from visiting Laura at Meaningful Spaces, welcome, and a big thank you to Tammy At Pink Peppermint Design for hosting and putting this tour together.
I really do love Thanksgiving, and love hosting at my home. I always try to come up with something different from the year before, which is actually pretty easy since I tend to change things around frequently. This year, everything kind of fell into place in a different way than normal with some things I borrowed mixed in with things I already had.
I like drama, and I love color, so I layered a paisley runner I made with two garlands I bought back in August. I always layer fresh greens, but I really wanted to do a runner off the end of an outdoor table I was working on, so I bought this berry garland from Pier One, then wove it into the most realistic leaf garland I could find at Hobby Lobby. I ended up not using it back in August and felt like I needed to use it for this table, so I added in some real leaves, pinecones, real gourds, mini pumpkins and hydrangeas.
From there, I added vintage brass candle holders with different color candles down the center.
I, who always hated gold flatware, found myself buying a vintage set on eBay earlier this fall, and decided to borrow this Homer Laughlin Diplomat restaurant dinnerware from friends to go with it. Now, those who know my dinnerware collection are probably laughing hysterically at my borrowing dinnerware -- and using gold flatware, ha. I wanted plain with a gold rim, and my plain whites all have silver😊 Anyway, I loved the look and it worked perfectly with the flatware.
And speaking of the gorgeous flatware, it is Golden Scroll -- Americana Heritage by International Silver and also available at replacements.com. Searching for "Americana Golden Heritage" will yield the most results on eBay.
We use cloth napkins exclusively because I think it's greener, and these are napkins I bought on amazon. They're really nice and wash well, but I had to cut lots of hanging threads off when I got them.
In addition to the gold-rimmed plates and flatware, I really wanted to use amber glassware, so these Tiara Sandwich Glass amber tea glasses, which match a decanter set my mother gave me, seemed perfect for this table.
The chargers are actually wood I bought several years ago and painted gold.
I'm so happy with how this turned out and can't wait to smell the turkey and dressing cooking and see my mom on the way from next door with her scratch-made pumpkin pies.
As much as I love setting the table and getting everything ready, it's really the fellowship I enjoy most and the opportunity to be intentional about voicing gratitude -- which is something we all need to do more of every day😉
I'm so glad you stopped by here today and hope you find something you can try on your own table.
