Thanksgiving Tablescape

Thanks for sharing!

We are so enjoying the fall weather that we are finally experiencing here in the south!! The leaves are starting to change colors ever so slightly.I am actually wearing a sweater as I write this post. You don't know how happy that make me! It's the little things!! 

This month for our Pinterest Challenge, we are sharing ideas for your Thanksgiving table.

Welcome to another installment of our monthly Pinterest Challenges hosted by my sweet friend, Cindy, from County Road 407

If you are new to the Pinterest Challenge, here are the details!

  • each month Cindy selects a photo for inspiration online that we will recreate
  • the owner of the photo has graciously given us permission to give our spin on the project
  • you will receive numerous ideas that you can replicate in your home to keep things fresh

This month's inspiration comes from Lindsey Brunk. Please visit her site to see all of this gorgeous tablescape! 

Thanks if you are stopping by from Le Cultivateur

My takeaway on this was creating a long centerpiece across the table full of greens and berries.

While Lindsey's table uses gorgeous dark colors, I went with lighter….mainly because I wanted to use what I had.

I made these place card holders years ago. They are so simple to make with saved wine corks. Just glue 3 together in a triangle and with a sharp knife, carefully cut a shallow slit in the top to hold the card. I used plain business cards that I had for printing your own. I just used a gold pen to hand write them.

The base of the centerpiece is one long eucalyptus garland from Amazon. You can shape it to meander along the table.

Then go along and add your candlesticks.

Next fill in with faux berries, pumpkins, urns with wine corks and more candlelight.

I've collected various sizes of brass candlesticks through the years. I love to use them in the fall. They are so warm with the colors of the season.

All that I use on my tablescape now in the dining room are faux pumpkins. You don't have to worry about rot or runners being ruined. Believe me….I've learned from that mistake.

Small thrift store urns are perfect for groupings of wine corks.

  4. So lovely, Christy! Your lighter version fits your home and decor beautifully. Love the long look, with the garland as a base; it gives a great foundation to build upon.

  5. Love your arrangement the soft colored pumpkins and brass so so pretty. I agree I like it better than the example.,

  6. Christy, your table is stunning with all of its light and airy textures and the adorable pumpkins!!! If you hadn’t said anything, I wouldn’t have even noticed that your pumpkins were faux. I love the soft blue-greens and the soft tans of the woven placemats, napkins, berries and the soft tealight holders! Lovely take on this month’s Thanksgiving theme…

    Happy fall to you,
    Barb šŸ™‚

  7. Simply stunning, Christy! Your tablescape looks so perfectly styled with the softer color scheme. I just love all the wine cork accents like the place card holders. (Brilliant!) Oh, I can attest to pumpkins rotting on furniture! It happened to me last year, and I was devastated. Faux it is! Happy Thanksgiving!

  8. Your centerpiece is gorgeous! Love the pumpkins, leaves and berries (I have some of the sparkly ones myself!) Using those wine corks for place card holders is so rustic and elegant, too! Enjoy hopping with you, Christy! Pinned!
