Thanksgiving Tablescape

Pin It!

Our table is set and ready
for Thanksgiving.

I was going for a
less traditional color scheme 
this year,
but I did end up having to throw some
rust hues in at the very end!
(Too bland without them.)

I started by sewing my own
napkins & table runners.

I put the table runners across the table
crosswise instead of along the center 
vertically.


BHG.com had the cutest idea where
they used pumpkins with monograms
for place cards.

GUESS WHAT . . . 
I waited until after Halloween to
purchase the pumpkins & they 
were NOWHERE to be found!

So, I found these fake pumpkins
at Hobby Lobby
(80% off) and, since I really wanted white,
I taped off the stems & 
spray painted them.

(That's my curious little dog, Sam, in the background!)

I then just drew the monograms on with a
permanent marker.
(I wanted to try vinyl, but have I mentioned
I'm the only one without a Cricut???)


Each place setting also has a menu

For the centerpiece,
I used a wreath with a candle in the center.


I hope you & your loved ones have
a wonderful & blessed Thanksgiving!
