Thanksgiving Table

In honor of our impending Thanksgiving celebrations, I thought I would share with you my table set up.  I am a big fan of mixing metallics and keeping things neutral and natural.

A lot of people put pressure on themselves to have the perfect table set up and you can really spend a lot of money on decorations, but I am a big fan of keeping things simple.  I kept those left over pumpkins from halloween and added in some dried corn from the supermarket to give it a rustic and natural feel.

We registered for china when we got married, and have not yet had a chance to use it, so we thought this fabulous holiday would be perfect!  When we registered for China, I actually registered for 3 different patterns.  They are from Wedgwood and Vera Wang for Wedgwood, and they all have the same platinum edge detailing. Each pattern is different though, and being that they are the same color, they look so great paired together!

I then wanted to add in some gold details.  The table runner and napkins were awesome finds at Homegoods, and add in a subtle metallic element without being over the top. I also love these gold candle sticks and silverware from CB2. They are so minimal and simple, and really unique.

I also love the play with levels with the different height candle sticks and the stemless glasses for water in contrast with the taller red win glasses. It really is the little details that make it.  It’s all about balance between high and low and ornate and simple.

All in all, it barely cost us anything to set up such a beautiful table, and I really want to emphasize the importance in using the things you already have.  There is no needed to go out and buy all new china or dining sets.  By going out and finding new napkins or table clothes from places like Homegoods, you can really elevate your dinnerware and table without breaking the budget!
