I know we are all knee deep in some type of Holiday decorating, but I wanted to share my Thanksgiving table with you today.
If you follow me on Instagram, I shared that I almost always use what I have around the house when I start decorating my Thanksgiving table. I truly never know when I start how it will end up;) I just go with the flow…somehow it usually ends up working out in the end :)
The only new element I added was some Eucalyptus that I picked up at Trader Joe’s along with gold flatware that I found at Walmart! Yes, Walmart! I had my eye out for some gold flatware for quite some time, and happened upon it while running an errand. Don’t you love when that happens?!
I knew I wanted to keep the decor natural and use what I had in the house, so I procured all of the pumpkins I could find and used them in a horizontal manner similar to a “runner” down the table. The Eucalyptus was used as filler between and amongst the pumpkins. I really liked how this focal point came together.
The plates are my everyday Mikasa china and antique Blue Willow. I love incorporating my Blue Willow because it reminds me of my grandmother who used hers everyday. My favorite Ikea woven placemats frame the plates beautifully. It makes me so happy when I can use items that remind me of special times or people; it makes the celebration that more meaningful:)!
I was quite pleased with how this year’s table turned out! It really was simple, organic, practical and pretty! Even though it is usually only my sweet family of four during holiday celebrations, I always decorate my table and make it meaningful for us ;).
Now on to Christmas! As I type this, Charlie Brown’s Christmas CD (my all time fave) is playing in the background. I am ready to Deck the Halls! Oh how I love this time of year…. How about you?
*Of note: We had very cloudy weather which doesn’t make great conditions for picture taking! I did my best! ;)
