A Thanksgiving Table

With Thanksgiving drawing near, I’ve been thinking about gathering around the table and enjoying my family and all the homemade food and dessert that Thanksgiving brings.   This year, we’re still not sure who is hosting, but I would be happy to have everyone over here:)    I started playing around with tablescapes this weekend and liked this simple one.  I typically go for warmer colors for Thanksgiving, so this is a nice departure for me.  I think I’d like to add some tall glass candlestick holders (or votives) and white candles, but I’m still looking for those.  Gma, Thanksgiving table 034 I used our wedding china (Ralph Lauren), pale blue placemats from Target (have you seen their table linens lately?!) and pumpkins I painted with metallic gold spray paint.  Gma, Thanksgiving table 033 Gma, Thanksgiving table 042 Gma, Thanksgiving table 043 I looove the holidays!  I’m just giddy over here!  You too??

    Love the table setting and the china. We go to my sisters almost every year for Thanksgiving, which is fine by me, her cooking tastes just like mine and I don't have to do all the work. But I do bring all the table decorations and set it up all pretty before we sit down to eat. She hates the decorating part but loves the cooking so it is a win win situation.

    Your table scape is gorgeous! Those gold pumpkins are such a great idea. It all looks perfect! And I think the candlesticks would be a great addition. (P.S. Your china is beautiful.)

    This tablescape is really calm-cool-collected. I certainly love the holidays as well. Hopefully I can entertain this year as well.

    It looks beautiful! I love the gilded pumpkins with your china, and the blue placemats. You can find some fairly inexpensive glass votives of varying heights/shapes at Crate and Barrel. We are hosting here, keeping the centerpiece simple this year.

    That table is beautiful! I love the mix of gold, blue and silver! Your wedding china looks so similar to ours but ours is Vera Wang! Oh and great placemats, I never look at that at Target but will have to now!

    I have a post set for tomorrow that has my inspiration table with these gorgeous gold pumpkins… only problem is I can not find a single pumpkin in houston… the halloween pumpkins got carved and I can't find new ones.

    WOW — That looks beautiful. I don't recall having visited your blog before, and that's amazing to me because I thought I had seen all of them. I love your blog and have signed up to follow you. Please visit me and, if so inspired, sign up to follow my blog, as well. Now I'm off to look around and be further inspired!

    I love the metallic on the pumpkins, and it'll look so good once you have the candlelight reflecting off of it!

    It's lovely, Megan! I love the departure from "traditional" Thanksgiving colors…it's really really pretty.

    Love the table setting. I especially like the 'golds' and 'silvers' mixed with some blue… I was thinking about that color palette for Christmas also 🙂

    That is gold spray paint? It looks so shiny! Love that.

  28. November 9, 2010 / 9:05 pm

    I love this look and the mix of metallics! Your china is similar to mine, too (Vera Wang Grosgrain).
