Guys can you believe the holiday season is upon us? Way too fast I know! But nonetheless I’m super excited for the warm & tingly feelings that completely take over this time of year. If you are anything like me, coming up with dreamy table concepts is just as thrilling as prepping the feast!
This year I decided on a completely plush table concept. With velvet being so huge for fall/winter I decided to not just incorporate it in my table concept, but also make it the star. What better way to do this than to have a velvet tablecloth (although not the most practical) it will no doubt be a showstopper! I thought the mix of natural materials such as wood,stone glass and dried flowers would act as a beautiful compliment to the velvet. I love a non traditional thanksgiving color palette. I wanted a very calming yet chic color story, so I naturally gravitated toward moody blues, grays,creams,charcoal and white for a crisp clean pop.
Here I arranged the dried flowers and placed the vases upside-down for an interesting twist
I used these natural wood slices as oversized coasters for the glassware which added a nice dimension to the overall table concept.
I handmade my velvet pumpkins by cutting various size circles, hand stitched the perimeter and stuffed each one ….then used a hot glue gun to attach the stems.
The centerpiece base is anchored by two weathered wooden shelves from Michaels craft store which are on a super sale at the moment.
Every year I like to add a personal touch for my guests. This super simple yet chic handwritten wood chip acts as a place card and the cutest little souvenir to attach to your guests to go bags so that there is no confusion with everyones leftovers.
I’d like to wish you and yours and very Happy Thanksgiving!
As always thanks for passing by!
