Hello friends, surprise I’m posting on a Wednesday! You all know I fly pretty fast and loose with my blog schedule right ( wink)? Once again I find myself in the company of talented tablescaper’s throughout blog land. The lovely Chloe from Celebrate and Decorate has gathered us all together to celebrate one of my favorite holidays, Thanksgiving. You know all Thanksgiving food and leftovers are all “calorie free” right? I know you will enjoy the Thanksgiving Tablescape Blog Hop.
If you just arrived from Bluesky at Home thank you for clicking over to continue the tablescape tour.
It’s always a pleasure to create a space that welcomes good food and conversation. That celebrates the season and brings family and friends together to express gratitude for all of our blessings, big and small.
I started with a curtain scarf from our bedroom as a tablecloth. I wanted to be able to gather it together at one end. I used a piece of fishing line to hide how it is pulled together. I’ve seen this done with large bows and the tablecloth pools onto the floor. I’ve always liked it.
The table runner is actually one of my favorite scarves. I love the boho fringe and the wrinkles and folds make it look even better. You know me well enough to know, I am all about new uses for old things.
I waited for the sun to go down to take some photos, I love dining by candlelight. These battery-operated votives came from the dollar store!
The “sprinkling “of gold painted acorns and decorative amber and gold glass stay true to my “tablescape signature” of spilling onto the table. Not to be confused with actually spilling something, giggle.
My sweet hubby stopped by the local farm on his way home a couple of weeks ago and bought me a bunch of baby boos and little pumpkins. They are perfect for the table. He was so excited to give them to me, he knew how hard it was to find them last year. I sure do love that man of mine.
I wish I could remember where I found these gold leaf accent dishes. I put them out every year.
The centerpiece was created using scraps from previous arrangements, Thanksgiving picks from the local craft store and my favorite crackle paint urn. I’ll tell you a secret…shhh…it leaks when you fill it with water. So this is a dry flower vessel only. It is one of my favorites though. The knobbly almost rope style handles give it such a unique look.
The gold chargers are from the local craft store ( 1.99 each). The polished gold napkin rings are from Bed Bath and Beyond. I love that store!
It is a pleasure to share my Thanksgiving Gold Tablescape and the blog hop with you.
Okay let’s play a quick game, without looking back through the photos, can you tell me what was missing?
Answer: Flatware. I seldom use flatware in my tablescapes.
I hope you enjoyed my Thanksgiving Gold Tablescape.
Please continue on the tour by clicking over to The Painted Apron and I invite you to come back on Friday and take the whole tour. You won’t be disappointed and you may find some fun ideas for your Thanksgiving table.
Continue the Thanksgiving Tablescape Hop
I look forward to seeing you back here tomorrow for the TFT blog hop link party for blog writers and blog readers.
