Hello! Are you ready for Thanksgiving Day? What do you usually do to celebrate? We will be going to my sister’s this year and eating lots of good food! I’m sure there will be some football watching, maybe some board games, and good naps. Sounds about right!
I’ve been slowly doing some decorating, but I did manage to get my table ready to go. I decided to go with a gold, silver and white theme this year. Kind of Rustic Glam. I picked up a few things that worked perfectly and put it all together.
The day I took the pictures was a beautiful sunshiny day. It didn’t quite give the cozy and warm feeling of the holidays, but it gave great light for the pictures! I used a white tablecloth and a white scarf with silver sparkles for a runner.
I started out with silver chargers at the ends of the table and then layered on white plates. I found some lovely grey napkins at Home Goods. I wrote names on a piece of wood and attached it to a wooden napkin ring. I used the flatware from Oneida that I received as wedding gifts many years ago.
The other place setting have a gold charger, but the rest is the same.
I layered items on top of a wooden tray I picked up at Goodwill. I love using trays for centerpieces. It contains everything, plus you can just pick up the whole thing to move it out of the way. I found the sparkly burlap tree at Target and the sequined starfish was from Kohl’s several years ago.
This serene deer came from Goodwill too. I thought he was so pretty and he works perfectly on the table.
The tiered dish is from my MIL and this is the first time I have used it on my table. I added some ornaments that came from Target and some sweets for after dinner.
I fell in love with this bird when I saw it! I knew it must come home with me! I bought it a friend too. It sits at the other end of the table. The arrow and feather garland was a must-have too. It just called out my name!
The mercury glass jar was from Haley’s graduation and I picked up some sticks from my yard and spray painted them white. Then just plopped them in! I also added a little green with some cut evergreen from my yard.
I really like how this turned out this year. I usually use a lot more color, so this was a bit of a challenge. It really looks beautiful at night with the candles and tree lights glowing.
I hope you all have a Blessed Thanksgiving! Enjoy a day of family and friends and food!
