I don't know about you guys, but I LOVE decorating the Thanksgiving table/basically any table when we are entertaining. I feel like it started in elementary school by making cornucopias out of paper to put on the table during Thanksgiving lunch. Since Thanksgiving is all about gathering around a table, there is something so special about making the table look festive and gorgeous.
A few weeks ago, I approached my friend Brittany, owner of Birch & Brass Vintage Rentals, to create a little moody Thanksgiving table inspiration. I told her I wanted to steer away from the super traditional feel of Thanksgiving and give something that was different but also very festive and she completely knocked it out of the park. As if I already couldn't get enough of her stunning inventory, combining all these pieces made me want to stop everything and just eat Thanksgiving dinner right there. Below I have given a few tips of how to make your table unique but also keep it festive.
The whole color scheme in this table setting gives me all the heart eyes. It combines some trendy colors (indigo, charcoal grey, and copper) with some more traditional Fall colors (amber, orange, and cream). While you probably wouldn't normally pair these two color palettes together, they look absolutely stunning when used in the right way. The use of brighter colors and also neutral colors in the florals also helped tie things together really well.
Florals are what make everything come together in my opinion. You can use florals to create a centerpiece and even just to fill up some extra space on the table (if you have any with all the food there will be!). We used a bigger vase for the centerpiece and smaller ones to fill in some of the little spaces. Greenery is always a good idea guys. We wove some greenery throughout the table to give this a natural feel. You can also use it as a table runner, as a filler in vases or even to put at each place setting.
SNIPPETS OF TRADITION
I think everyone who sees a pumpkin automatically thinks "Fall" or "Thanksgiving," but you don't need to overdo it when it comes to your Thanksgiving table. By simply adding a pumpkin here or there and maybe an ear of corn or two (like the ones we put on each plate), you can add that bit of tradition without going overboard. You can also think about what different kinds of fruits and veggies are in season. Persimmons are a Fall fruit and I love how they added a pop of orange to our table.
All-in-all, Thanksgiving is all about bringing people to your table, having good conversation, and just being with those you love. You want to create a table that is inviting and I think that's exactly what Brittany accomplished with this table. So bring out the turkey, y'all! I'm ready to feast!
