Good morning! Did you get to enjoy a holiday weekend? I did get to have 3 days off, which was so nice. And, I started my Christmas decorating!! I am starting in my ‘formal’ living room/dining room. Since it is somewhat separate from the other rooms in the house, it’s easiest to start there and then gradually decorate the rest. Plus I wanted to do it a little different than the rest of the house. The ideas are swirling in my head! I can’t wait to see how it all comes together. But for now, I have the last fall post for this year. Earlier in the fall, I had used green, white and black, here, and now I recreated it more for Thanksgiving.
I bought this great big fat pumpkin when I went to the pumpkin patch with my class and it has been waiting to be the star of the table! I love it!
I was able to cut a few small branches of magnolia leaves from my neighbors tree (shhh) to use on the table too. I added in a few pussy-willow branches and some golden acorns.
The candlelight glowing on the white hydrangeas and leaves look so pretty.
Adding in lots of textures gives the table a cozy and homey feel. Rattan place-mats and burlap pumpkins combined with the leaves and flowers add just the right touch.
I added just a little bit of orange and turquoise too.
I hope you all get to gather around the table with special people in your lives this Thanksgiving. All the decor and food mean nothing if we can’t share it with the people we love!
I’m so glad you stopped in today. Thank you so much for following along! The next time I am here, it will be with Christmas ideas! I can’t wait to share it with you all!
