We had a lovely Thanksgiving evening hosting my parents, son, and his fiancée.
Since it was the second meal for everyone else we opted for more of a simple supper. It was more about having time together as a family. Though the carb overload was delicious!
|Beginning with a blank slate...a freshly dusted table.|
I shared a few pics of my table a few days ago while I was in the process of putting it together.
I have to say that I think this tablescape works for not only fall/Thanksgiving but the Christmas season too...if you want to copy it. :-)
I began with a folded ivory tablecloth as my table runner. I then added branches of faux pine greenery. If you have fresh that would be even nicer. After the greenery I chose to make a bow and ribbon to tuck into the greenery.
I added candlesticks and tapers since we were eating after sunfall...around 5:00. ha! Everyone looks wonderful by candlelight.
|I love love love to decorate with pine cones...large and small.|
|Remember to include various colors and textures in a centerpiece.|
