Folks, my tablescape game is on fleek this year! (If you don’t know what that means, ask a 12 year-old. They’ll tell you I’m not using the word right. Which makes me chuckle, because I kind of aspire to be one of those ‘old folks’ who thinks they’re super cool… case in point: You can’t take me anywhere–>)
I had a vague idea for this table that involved artificial floral garlands I grabbed on-sale at Homegoods (similar to this affiliate link from Amazon), grocery store produce/ flowers and succulents gathered from around the house.
First step is the linens… I layered an Ikea tablecloth I just picked up (I couldn’t find it on the website, but it’s similar to this one) with a runner I’ve had on hand for ages.
Next, I started playing around with the greenery. I had the artificial wildflower garland and then placed the succulents sporadically amongst it.
The centerpiece needed some height. Not so much height to obscure the site line across the table, but enough to be interesting. I propped up the smaller wooden bowl onto this amazing brass goblet I found at Goodwill last year.
I always look to the grocery store first for flowers and produce. For this tablescape I picked up dragon fruit (!), pomegranates, artichokes, brussels sprouts, limes and flowers.
Once these were scattered around, time for candles. Candles, candles, candles! I’m using a combination of LED candles similar to these (affiliate) and this AMAZING pair of glass candleabras from my latest obsession, the estate sale site called Everything But the House.
We don’t bust it out often enough, but I’m still crazy for our formal china. The brass chargers were another Goodwill gift from the thrifting universe.
The napkin rings are Ikea (sorry, they’re not on the website)… they came in two other colors and are so great. Silverware is ready on the newly marbled sidetable, and wine is ready to be opened on the wooden crate rolling cart.
Ok… enough with the chit chat. If you’re anything like me when I read a blog, I just want to see the pictures. So, here they are!
If this got you in the mood for Thanksgiving, then today’s you’re lucky day! Head on over to these amazing ladies to see what holiday decor they have to show off!
