USING WHAT YOU HAVE… {Thanksgiving tablescape}

Can I just say thank you for all the love I got on my living room?! Seriously, who would have thought I would have gotten such a reaction.  I think I’m gonna start decorating like this all of the time!

Today I wanted to share my Thanksgiving tablescape with you.  Btw, is tablescape a word or is it something we bloggers came up with? Anywho, I already told you that I wanted my table to consist of mostly things from nature.  I should have said things that humans made to look like stuff from nature because everything I used is fake, faux, whatever you want to call it!

Thanksgiving table1

I started with some fabric that I used last year for my Christmas table.  On top of that, I used kraft paper.  You know those rolls of kraft paper that you see at Lowes or Home Depot?  I’ve even seen them at Target, but mine came from Lowes because I grabbed a roll for when I’m painting my furniture.  Next up, I pulled out”some” of my milk glass.  I have a lot.  No seriously, I have A LOT!

Thanksgiving table2

I stuffed them with a bunch of faux foliage (stems I picked up from Target last year, some moss I had in the garage, and some plum colored plant thingy from Michaels).  The plum colored plants I bought recently because they were 80% off plus I had a 25% off coupon which made them 79 cents BOOYAH!

Thanksgiving table3

The plates I already had which I always pull out when I’m setting the table.  These plates were mentioned in one of my first posts (2 years ago!). 

Thanksgiving table4

The green glasses are from Goodwill.  I went back and forth on if I should buy them because they were priced individually.  I really hate when they do thatShifty

Thanksgiving table5

I pulled out my pretty little napkin rings I used last year for Christmas, but then I thought about the paper I had in my craft drawer.  Plum colored paper was just the perfect touch for this casual table. I cut little strips of paper, wrapped it around the napkins and tied it with twin.  How easy is that?!

Thanksgiving table7

The pumpkins came from Hobby Lobby last year and the pinecones are a mix of the regular kind and some that I spray painted gold.

Thanksgiving table8

I really don’t know how to take good pictures of table settings.  I ‘m going to try some more to see if I can get a few more shots that are a little better.  I still have a lot to do in this tiny little space.  Well, not really a lot.  I have a chandelier that I picked up from GW last year that has been sitting in my garage.  It’s time to hang that baby! Plus, I’m make some of those little paper wheels (is that what you call them?) to hang of the back wall.  I’ll be sure to show you that.

So, what do you think?! Have you put together your Thanksgiving table?!

I love those green glasses...Great find!!! I found some pewter cups at Goodwill once...yes, pewter! They had initials on them, so I left. Came back the next day and they were gone. I often think about those cups...Grab first, and think later!

I love the green glasses and the milk glass vases. I also wanted to tell you I LOVE your new livingroom! I just didn't get a chance to leave a comment about it.

I was just wondering if you ever considered making your family room into a dining room area for when you have large gatherings, such as holidays? Only temporary of course, especially since the room hasn't been completed with decorations and furnishings.

Wow, you are knocking out these projects left and right! Everything is coming together nicely. Job well done!

Of COURSE you have a chandelier waiting in your garage! There is going to be a line of people waiting to shop your Garage by morning! Table is perfect, now please come set mine.

You might get this comment twice because it said I did something wrong the first time.....but here goes. Beautiful table. How come you find so much cool stuff it the GW???? First of all I am impressed that you are already on top of the table setting....
I love how organic it feels with the paper, but the milk glass really brightens it up!

Okay........now you're just showing off :) The table looks great it's a nice balance. I'm still reading through recipes my table setting is way way on the back burner. I can hardly wait to see what you do tomorrow!!

Laekitha, I love the way you can pull things together to make them look so special!! you are one talented lady!!! Your table is so inviting and love the color combination, the touch of plum just adds the right touch. I am hopefully going to be able to start on my table this weekend. Still waiting for Hubby to make my wooden box for the center of the table!!! have a great rest of the week and thanks for visiting my blog this week, it is always great to see your name there, xo Kathysue

I am not hosting this year but this looks beautiful - elegant and rustic at the same time and the milkglass pieces lightens up the whole setting.
