This year we are heading to Michigan for Thanksgiving weekend. And because of the distance we travel my family is kind enough to let me get by with decorating the tables for thanksgiving, and leaving the cooking to others. (Although I’m craving the homemade green bean casserole so maybe I’ll have to find a way to sneak that on the menu.) This year I am going with neutral white pumpkins and orange accents. Take a peek at the tablescape below.
I started by placing a neutral table cloth that I found at Homegoods. It is a light cream color and it almost has a burlap look. Next we used our basic white plates, layered with woven plate chargers.
The center of the table is layered with broom corn (found at a local Amish stand) and dried orange box leaf from my favorite source for dried flowers. White pumpkins and candle sticks from Hobby Lobby and thrifting complete the table.
Regardless of if you are traveling for Thanksgiving or hosting. Surrounded by dozens of people, or one or two. Cooking or decorating. Shopping or napping. I hope that the day is full of time for Thanksgiving. If the thought of layering your table with preserved flowers and pumpkins stresses you out instead of being a source of enjoyment, forget about it! The pretty Thanksgiving tables are for inspiration, not competition. May you be blessed with spending the Thanksgiving weekend with those you care for.
