Black & Gold Thanksgiving Table

Hi there!  Did you enjoy that extra hour in your day as much as I did?  Sunday felt like it was never going to end, which is a good thing:)  Over the weekend, I experimented with a Thanksgiving tablescape in a black and gold color palette.


The runner, gold charger plate and black plate with gold trim are from Z Gallerie.  The chevron plate is Mikasa.



I printed "Give Thanks" on my computer in "Zapfino" font on gold vellum paper and tied it to the pear stem with a sheer ribbon.  

The decorative pears were glammed up with some metallic gold spray paint.


I also found a big gold bowl at TJ Maxx for $17 and filled it with apples and pumpkins.


I'm still working on the finishing touches, but it's coming together!  Are y'all looking forward to Thanksgiving too?

  4. Wow! I love! The runner is gorgeous as well as the plates and pears. I love the labels--did you print them out in that shape somehow or did you hand cut them? Thanks for sharing what font you used as well! I cannot wait for Thanksgiving and a long weekend at home with wonderful friends and family!

  6. I am dying when I saw your bowl!, I just bought the small and large of that same exact bowl at Home Goods lol. I am using it my closet for my watches and bracelets. You should use it in your closet after the holidays. It really sparkles under the light. And you can see your jewelry easier.

    I am playing around with my table decor too!, (you sure you are not my daughter lol) I just posted how I stamped on a pumpkin. I was too lazy to print anything out like you did. I love the gold and black! It is looking so pretty,
