Giving Thanks

Sunday, November 17, 2013 | Category: Decor Accessories, Decorating, Design Inspiration, Holiday

It’s that time of year where the weather can be confusing, the foliage is in full swing and people are gearing up for the holidays. Thanksgiving is around the corner yet New York has already started to decorate for Christmas and Holiday songs have hit the air.  Slow down!  It’s definitely a cheerful time of year and there’s a lot to be thankful for so I’ve started to look around for some inspirational tablescapes — while I’m thankful for the food we eat on Thanksgiving,  I can also appreciate a well set table full of color and good cheer.

 

cactus

I love the cactus and cabbage flowers in this centerpiece.  It’s a nice break from your average floral arrangement

candles

Candles are always a great way to “light up” a table

foliage

Baskets of foliage at their best

fruit

Bringing fruit on the table is a great reminder as to why we sit down and celebrate “thanks” with a meal

give thanks

I love the idea of painting pumpkins white and marking it with a special statement or quote about what you’re thankful for

leaves

Mother nature has given us plenty to work with and Fall is the perfect season to use what she has given us

pears

Pears are one my favorite fruits to incorporate in a table setting

placecards

I love the wheat on these simple place cards

pumpkins

twigs

More pumpkins – toned down with white and grey

wheat

Bunches of wheat are great for the table or mantle

white pumpkins

Using fall colors helps create a natural, soothing environment

However you decide to dress your table this year I hope you enjoy the season and take time to count your blessings and share your appreciation with the people you are thankful to have in your life.

What day is it?
