A Bright Thanksgiving TablescapeThursday, November 28, 2013
Happy Thanksgiving Lovelies!
Today I want to share "A Bright Thanksgiving Tablescape."
This tablescape is particularly for a small, more intimate dinner party. If your space is small, this should work for you. If you think your space is too small for a dinner party, I promise this will work.
The only things I went out to shop for were the napkins, table runner, and tapers. Everything else I already had.
How to create a Thanksgiving Tablescape:
First you want to start with a color scheme or theme if you have one. I went with the color scheme of my space.
Start pulling items such as dishes and other things you own in your color scheme. If you have to purchase some things, stick to a budget and go for things like dishes,a table runner, or chargers.
Once you have everything together, start dressing your table.
I started by placing my tablecloth. I then added my runner, which by the way is a DIY. I purchased 2yds of fabric and made my table runner. You want to build up some layers and textures. To do that add pine cones, leaves, glassware and stack some things too.
I then moved on to my centerpiece, which is some Pine Sprays bunched up in a vase, I added a few pine cones to it and placed a candle on each side.
I then placed my chargers which I spray painted over the summer to go with my decor. Next you place your dinner plates, and add a salad plate. This is where your layering takes place. I placed a napkin on the center of the plates and the silverware on the sides. The last thing I added were the wine glasses.
As you can see my table seats 6 but all I have are two chairs which were the ones I made over here and a bench which I dressed up with some pillows. Everything came together better than I imagined it.
This is something you can do even if your space is small. I love entertaining and I always try to do my best when it comes to tablescapes.
Here's some pictures of the final look!
Are you hosting Thanksgiving this year? What do you do on thanksgiving?
Stay tuned and I'll show you how you can dress up your table using Premium (plastic/paper) tableware. If you can't dress up your table for Thanksgiving, you can prepare for a fabulous Christmas tablescape instead.
Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your Thanksgiving dinner!
