When a holiday or celebration approaches, I love decorating my home. I especially embrace designing a tablescape appropriate for the celebration or season using collectables from throughout the years, adding additional on-trend objects. I style my table with a festive vibe that reflects both my home, and my personality. Walking through the house and seeing the holiday decor is such a sweet daily reminder of the festivities ahead! With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I used the first weekend of November to decorate my tablescape. I hope you enjoy our Thanksgiving table as this will be the hub of fabulous food, laughter, and fun for family and friends. Enjoy!
Color Palette Selections
Neutral, tone on tone is the vibe with lots of texture, candlelight, with a variety of heights. I always say, “a flat table is a boring table”. Crystal candlesticks with bright white tapers, and tea lights. White china, or pottery, white napkins, beautiful crystal stemware, and gold charger plates look fabulous.
Focal Point and Points of Interest
Select a focal point. I found these fabulous pheasants from Z Gallerie. LOVE!! They are fabulous!!! Adorned with feathers and sparkling beads, these beauties will set a tone of glamour, and the feel of autumn. I selected one of each size, small, medium, and large as I like to work in odd numbers. The birds are festive, and are perfect for my Thanksgiving table.
I love adding texture. Texture was added with a runner, actually a throw adorned with beautiful white feathers. I found a beautiful garland of gold eucalyptus which trails beautifully down the table allowing candles, and objects to nest throughout. Fairly lights are always so beautiful, and lately a must for every tablescape. I used three strands for the perfect glow.
Preserving and Storing My Collectables
I store my glass pumpkins in my pantry. When we purchased our home, and began the remodeling process, I knew I needed a lot of storage space. I keep holiday items up high on shelves or pack in bins, clearly labeled. Pack in bubble wrap, and/or tissue, and move to our storage room of our home. Again, SO important to clearly label.
