Happy Thursday, sweet friends! I hope you all are well and enjoying this nice cool weather! Today I want to share with you a pretty and easy fall tablescape. Come check it out!
Last weekend while my husband was out golfing, I decided to do a dress rehearsal for Thanksgiving dinner. I started with a clean off-white ruffled tablecloth and went from there! For the centerpiece I used a black toned rooster that I bought from Williams-Sonoma years ago. Then I added a vase of orange roses and eucalyptus. And black candles are so pretty and a nice change from white, don’t you think?
I used my gold chargers for the base of each place setting, then added a white plate, then the beautiful Golden Pheasant china given to us by my sweet Mother-in-law a few years ago. I love how the layered plates look together!
Then I added lots of pumpkins, some real and some faux.
And here is another angle…
Flowers, candles and pretty pumpkins are classic and simple.
For the actual Thanksgiving Dinner, I’ll probably use a more low profile centerpiece so everyone can see and talk to one another. Maybe instead of one large flower arrangement I’ll sprinkle in a few low vases with roses and place them among the pumpkins and candles.
I love using vintage turkey salt and pepper shakers too. They add a little fun and function to the table.
TIP: Here is a refresher on how to set a table. Forks and napkins on the left and knife and spoon on the right. And an easy way to remember where to put the bread plate and drinks is “wet right, dry left.”
I like it! Too bad I can’t leave it like this until Thanksgiving! LOL.
Whether you use china or paper plates, make your guests feel special and set a pretty table. But remember, there is nothing more beautiful than a table surrounded by those you love. Make some special memories this year and celebrate being together!
Thank you for stopping by today and always. Much love to you! Let’s chat again soon! xoxo Dell
