I am so excited for the holidays this year. As some of you know, I have an 8 month old little girl and it’s her first Thanksgiving! There is so much to be thankful for this year and I can’t wait for her to experience the holidays.
We are planning to go home for the holidays, but today I’m styling my own Thanksgiving table for a gathering with friends.
November is month filled with fall leaves, chilly temperatures and you can finally start enjoying your fireplace. It’s a cozy month which is what inspired my holiday table.
Doesn’t this setting feel so inviting? Fall foliage, fire and wine. Like I said, cozy. You can just picture family and friends chatting over a glass of wine, laughing and enjoying the setting that you have created.
Let’s take a closer look, shall we?
The centerpiece for this table is a candle holder with branches and fall foliage around it. I love to use candles of different heights in a 3 candle holder. To add a little more detail, I scattered little pumpkins around the centerpiece.
This centerpiece would be easy to recreate on your own. Grab some foliage or garland from your local craft store and weave the garland through the candles. Depending on how big your table is, you can add as many candles as you’d like.
My biggest tip for your centerpiece is to layer! Add candles of different heights, stack plates and chargers, and add details to your centerpiece. If it’s too much, take things away but a nice layered centerpiece always looks inviting.
If you look closely, you will see a subtle neutral chevron pattern on this runner. I like the unexpected pattern but you will get the same look with a burlap runner.
Because I used a table runner, I wanted to use plate chargers for the individual place settings. The pop of gold from the charger gives the table added warmth and compliments the white china.
I love to layer plates! The napkin rings are from L’Objet and I use them all the time.
The silverware paired with the gold chargers doesn’t bother me in this place setting. What do you think?
When serving wine it’s nice to incorporate some type of wine holder into your table setting. This wooden Industry Bottle Coaster from Pottery Barn works nicely with my rustic centerpiece. I always like to pair masculine items, like this wine holder, with more feminine items, like the L’Objet napkin rings. It makes for a nice contrast.
Thank you for stopping over for Thanksgiving! I hope you enjoyed my cozy fall tablescape.
