Entertaining: A Thanksgiving Table

With Thanksgiving only a week away (how is November already over?), I’m excited about this year’s table. Instead of going with the traditional – oranges, reds, browns and greens, I wanted to give our table a touch of glam with a few rustic elements. The entire concept sprung from these lucite and brass candlesticks that I found at the flea market a year ago. I’ve been dying to use them for a dinner party and thought they’d be a beautiful centerpiece. From there I found these beautiful gold ikat placemats from West Elm – I didn’t want to use a tablecloth this year because I wanted to be able to see our farm table. I added my Grandmothers gold dishes, silver that I picked up on Portobello Road and wine glasses from our wedding. To finish it I wrapped gold paper around white napkins and tied them with metallic bakers twine and gold leaves to bring in a fall feel.

When it came to the flowers I wanted to create two arrangements that brought a little more of a rustic vibe to the table. I picked up Lisianthus, Eucalyptus, Wax Flowers and Jingle Bell branches to create the centerpiece down the table.

I wanted to create a look that anyone could recreate in their own home – either for Thanksgiving or a dinner party over the holidays. It can be easily recreated with items from your own home or these treasures below. Plus, the placemats – that I’m absolutely in love with, are only $9.99! Here’s more on how to get the look.

It was such fun putting together this year’s Thanksgiving table – all of the details got me incredibly excited for the holiday season. In fact, I love this tabletop so much I haven’t taken it down. I want to host a dinner party before my Thanksgiving guests arrive. I hope this has inspired you for the season of party throwing. What are you planning for your Thanksgiving table this year?
