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!
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!
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!
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!).
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 that
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?!
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.
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?!
