Thanksgiving is one of our families favorite Holidays. It is my husbands favorite, so that makes me love it too. I am joining The White Buffalo Styling Co and ten other bloggers to share our Thanksgiving Table Settings. If you are stopping by from Inspired By Charm, welcome! I have big shoes to fill, I love ALL of Michael’s ideas. We are actually going to stay over night in New York City and watch the Thanksgiving Day Parade and go out to dinner. BUT…I still plan on making a Thanksgiving Dinner at home, for the leftovers of course. My in-laws are coming to join us and we are thrilled. So I will be setting the table like this for when we celebrate.
Setting the table is my FAVORITE thing to do. I love to find inspiration or something that gets me started on what I want the look to be. Until I find “that” thing I am lost. Best tip I can give is find a starting off point. This year I was inspired by THIS fall charger below. I loved the navy and the gold colors mixed with the berries.
I went with a woodlands, natural feel. I have always wanted to add navy in my kitchen with a table setting, but I was worried about it with my black deco tile. But I actually love the look. You can find links to my entire Thanksgiving look at the end of this post.
I found THESE darling laser cut squirrels. I knew they would be perfect as place-cards. I like to do something different every year. I have done mini chalkboards before. One year I did tiny little pears. I hosted at least 25 people when we lived in Utah for 7 years. When I did the little pears a cousin was there and she was so sweet and asked if she could keep it. I loved that she appreciated it. So these squirrels made me think of her and how perfect these would be as a little favor. I also found little fox ones too HERE. I wrote names on them with a chalkboard marker, you can find HERE.
Lola loved putting the little squirrels together. I love finding something that my girls can help with and those little animals are perfect!
I am obsessed with the leaf wood placemats. They are a great placemat for a round table, the shape fits perfectly around the curves. Layered over a classic white table cloth, a staple for any Holiday. I use my white dot plates all the time, but mixed with the cream splatter salad plate and teak wood bowls make them feel dressed up for Thanksgiving. Another way I dressed up the woodlands feel was with my new gold flatware set, I searched for the perfect set and found THESE, I really liked the gold and silver mixed together.
If you are unsure of what flowers to use for thanksgiving go with Eucalyptus. It is classic and also looks lovely with anything. I tied pieces together to make a fresh garland layered over my felt garland.
