Today on COM I am sharing “A Warm and Rich Thanksgiving Tablescape.” This particular tablescape is for a small more intimate dinner party. If you live in a small home or apartment this tablescape is perfect for you, and easy to to put together. So if you have thought… Oh’ my space isn’t big enough.. I promise it is. winks.
I went shopping at Tai Pan Trading and found the Turkey runner, the pretty glasses, and the turkey plates everything was 30% off that day. The rest of the items I used were stuff I had. I just shopped my glassware and home decor and dug through my Thanksgiving/fall tote to pull out the items I wanted to use.
How to create a Thanksgiving Tablescape-
–First you want to start with your color scheme and a theme if you have one. Next start pulling items such as dishes and other things you already own in your color scheme. If you need to purchase some things stick to a budget and go for things like a table runner, plate chargers, napkins, or dishes. After I gather my items I start dressing the table. I always start with a table runner or even a table cloth and then a runner on top. You want to build up some layers and textures. To do that add woods, and pine cones, leaves, glassware and stack some things too. I then moved onto my centerpiece, the centerpiece anchors your table. Build it up with a 1-2 inch tree trunk, a piece of flat wood, a wide flat like basket, in my case I used a wood cutting board. I then used a green vintage cake plate, a round twig and berries, and a pumpkin cookie jar filled with faux apples. Then I moved onto adding some candlesticks, candles, pine cones, leaves, and some old broken sticks from my yard. I stacked my plates starting with gold charges, dinner plates, and finally the turkey plates on top. I used pinceones from my front yard tree and added brown paper greeting cards to the pinecones. I wrapped some silverware in some duck cloth that was cut to size. I wrapped the silverware and duck cloth in some jute, and lastly added my glasses.
Here are some pictures of the final look!
