Remember my wood pallet centerpiece I posted about HERE? Well I decided to keep it center stage on my table so I could create a simple, pretty tablescape around it for Thanksgiving.
Only I won’t be using it. The truth is, I finally found some inexpensive plates with a classic turkey design so I’ll be changing my color scheme. You see, every year I use white plates for Thanksgiving so I’m excited about these new ones. Only this means that this lovely pumpkin-filled centerpiece will be moved to my kitchen island, and instead, I’ll have flowers in shades of pink and deep purple on this table. See? I told you I was changing my colors.
But that doesn’t stop me from having fun right now, with this table.
I’ve been seeing so much beautiful inspiration everywhere, I thought it would be fun to create two different looks for you because
- I love doing this and
- you might see an idea you can use (which would make me really happy).
I think this is a pretty, country tablescape. The rustic wood centerpiece sets the tone.
I like wood and wicker together because it makes such a warm, cozy look so I brought out my Pier One placemats. But with all that brown, I needed a little feminine touch of white so I placed white doilies on each cloth napkin. I also set the table with mason jars to use as drinking glasses which continues the idea of using common items to achieve this look.
I enjoy decorating my chandelier and if you remember, I decorated it with raffia to compliment the wood pallet centerpiece.
For the Thanksgiving dinner I thought it would be nice to embellish the raffia further so I went outside, clipped some real leaves off the tree and tied them with brown twine. What do you think? Simple and pretty.
Real miniature pumpkins go on each white dinner plate and I’ve tied brown Kraft tags to them.
It’s all pretty inexpensive stuff which is important these days.
A wood pallet. Raffia. Real leaves. Mason jars and now, miniature pumpkins. And did you know you can get the doilies at the Dollar Store or even at Joann’s Crafts Stores?
The wood pallet is filled with pumpkins of different sizes.
I positioned them inside the pallet and nestled the candlesticks in there too. Then I wound some bittersweet through the pumpkins for color. That’s it. I already had the green napkins and stemware.
I think the chandelier is my favorite. I like to see leaves dangling over my head.
Lately I’ve been noticing how much I like the miniature orange pumpkins. They make me smile. What are you noticing these days?
