Gather friends and family for this favorite holiday! Imagine feeling the autumn air while sitting among large oak trees and whistling wind. That is the vision for this month’s styling. An abundance of food and fall favorite desserts. A large wooden table set the base for our day. Layered with genuine Italian marble tiles used as place mats, we placed a white porcelain buffet plate charger and accented with a large plum buffalo check plate and a custom designed dinner plate.
Each place setting was accented with clean line bronze utensils on top of a plum folded napkin. And a wooden feather placed perfectly aside each plate welcomes guests.
Mix antique goblets with wine glasses for a change of pace. This is easy to do with Grandma's china mixed with your more modern choices. Don't be afraid to mix and match!
An abundance of wild greenery with purple berries placed on the table allows for an easy yet attractive centerpiece. Paired with large glass vases and metallic pumpkins, it’s all that was needed for this Thanksgiving table scape.
A side bar cart is always useful, making room for your side dishes and main attraction, the turkey. This side cart could also house plates, utensils, napkins, even beverages for your day. As host or hostess, pass from the cart to leave your table free of extra dishes.
White pumpkins are on trend for this season. Take yours to the next level by adding gold and bronze leaf. Purchase gold leaf at your craft store and apply with spray adhesive. Follow directions on the gold leaf package. These pumpkins popped with their metallic glow, and the bronze utensils and gold serving ware was a perfect match.
Setting the Thanksgiving scene is easy when using your surroundings. Fresh eggs from the farm's chickens made for a beautiful prop as well as conversation piece. Bringing in interesting and festive pieces add to your table. It was easy to take from farm to table with a beautiful setting.
