I LOVE making tablescapes, like absolutely LOVE. Tablescapes are a small space to decorate, there is an exact formula to follow and the rest gets to be creative and fun. It’s what I look forward to the most about hosting! This year we are having both of our families and we’ll be 14 adults and 6 little ones. Everyone brings a dish which makes the meal so easy, and also fun to try everyone’s dishes.
For our Thanksgiving Tablescape this year I wanted to use my new dinnerware from Terrain. I spotted it and immediately knew it would be perfect for our new home. The earthy blues and natural texture fit so nicely with the vibe of our home. I love them paired with these naturally dyed linen napkins in the color Rose. The tablecloth is a STUNNER and I want to leave it on the table always. It’s hand block printed and the colors are perfect. These chargers are my GO-TO all year round.
I like to do a low runner down the table as opposed to a large centerpiece because you can see the people on other side of the table! Trader Joe’s had these beautiful fresh magnolia leaves so I snatched up a bunch and laid those down along the center of the table. I filled it in with some fresh eucalyptus as well. There were these pretty preserved flowers also at Trader Joe’s so I got those to put on the plates. A simple detail that is so beautiful. I also love these pinecone candleholders scattered down the table.
The silver is very special. My mom gifted me one set of silver from when I was a little girl. I CHERISH real silver so much, it has an elegance to it that you can get from stainless steel. I also like that it isn’t everywhere and it’s not used on anything but a special occasion. The set is from Reed + Barton.
