Decorating For Thanksgiving
With Thanksgiving just a few days away here in Canada, I’ve been looking for simple table setting ideas to try at home. Here are some looks to try this long weekend:
Line a table with these black and gold Hakkari hurricane lanterns from Crate & Barrel to cast a warm glow at dinner. For place cards, stick a piece of cardstock into a pine cone.
Linen or burlap never fails for a simple, rustic touch. Create your own napkins by cutting to size and fraying edges. Then, use fabric marker to create a placecard.
Here, wheat makes its way onto a drink table at a wedding. Apples form wreathes around punch bowls.
Thanksgiving doesn’t have to mean a complete overhaul of your table — celebrate fall foliage and use tree branches for a colourful centrepiece. Mix small painted gourds between place settings, too. Gourds can be used in a number of ways:
Painted and grouped in a single colour for a centrepiece.
Labelled for a name card.
Mixed between various objects on a tablescape.
Even hollowed out and used as a vase!
How do you get your table ready for Thanksgiving?
