Thanksgiving is just a week away and I couldn’t be more excited. What’s better than eating delicious food with the people you love and appreciate most! On top of that, hosting your guests is an opportunity to decorate your table in a new way.
This year I collaborated with the very talented, Mckale Violet, to put together a Thanksgiving table decor look. Mckale is a blogger, fellow decorator and most importantly my wonderful friend! She and I met while working together at another firm and now that we have both gone our seperate ways we take every opportunity we can to work on things as a team. We have very similar design and decor styles, so executing our vision was easy!
We both love neutral tones with natural textures, greenery, elegant elements with rustic touches. We selected a simple, linen table runner with coordinating napkins for each individual place setting. I liked that these compliment each other rather than match exactly. Stacking a white dinner and salad plate with a simple pattern around the edge topped with the striped taupe and white napkin creates a simple yet elegant look. On each plate we wanted to have a small white pumpkin to add some festive charm without being too over the top or tacky. We looked every where for these little things and finally found them! Finished off with a small piece of Baby Blue Eucalyptus.
As Mckale set up the plates, I worked on the table runner and center piece. After laying the linen runner I spread out Silver Dollar Eucalyptus and Baby’s Breathe down the length of the table. In the center we placed a tree disc tray to add a rustic element to the display, with candles mounted on top. Around it we placed little mason jars with tea lights to create a warm, inviting atmosphere.
Last but not least, we finished the table off with classic crystal wine glasses and elegant silverware that had a gold trim. These two items help to balance out the rustic elements and provide that touch of elegance that we love.
And Voila !
We are so happy with the look of our Thanksgiving table and we can’t wait to entertain our friends here! To see Mckale’s take on our table styling visit her blog.
