Thanksgiving Table Ideas

In a couple weeks, I am sharing tips for setting your Thanksgiving table on KC Live.  I started playing around my design ideas.  While today’s will not be the tablescape you’ll see on the show, I still thought you’d enjoy seeing it.  I was inspired by beautiful plaid napkins I found at Pottery Barn and drawn to their soft fall colors and I love integrating a pattern somewhere in my table whether it be linen or china.

As always, when building a tablescape, I draw from items I already have.  My clients planned to dispose of the beautiful blue/grey pumpkins from their wedding last weekend.  You know I’d never let that happen.  They coordinated perfectly with the napkins, so I couldn’t resist incorporating them.

I used a few yards of osnaburg, completely uncut.  I love the rough edge for Fall.  It’s my go to fabric for everything.
Those cute little sauce dishes were a Pottery Barn clearance steal at just $1 each!  They’ll be perfect for the trio of flavored butters I have planned for Thanksgiving.
I used a couple frosted glass votives for candlelight to keep the soft look.
Oh, and those little white ghost pumpkins have made another appearance!  I always enjoy putting something at each place setting.
Can you believe this table took me a mere 10 minutes to create?
