How to make an elegant dining table

A couple of weeks ago, I guest posted for Better Homes and Gardens Style Spotters blog, sharing my tips for hosting a beautiful and relaxed Thanksgiving. I had an extremely difficult time just sharing a few photographs of the elegant dining table for Thanksgiving. Today, I’m sharing all of the details beautifully captured by Jenny Wheat. Here comes a little eye candy…

Using wood grain washi tape, I taped sprigs of rosemary for remembrance, a photograph of an old home on my grandparent’s property from my childhood, favorite quotes, family photos & a photograph of our old street in the Fall. It took just a few minutes and filled the void on the wall asThanksgiving dinner table decorations. {china from the Vintage Plate Company}

My antique dresser, filled with linens, topped with wispy flowers, found antlers and a pitcher of water add a rustic vibe to the Thanksgiving dinner table decorations.

  1. Beautiful, as always! Quick question: What is the gold flatware pattern on the word search? I have been looking for some and really like that one.

    1. Hi Pam!
      Thanks for your comment! I wish I could give you a link, but this set was from West Elm, probably 8-10 years ago!
      Have a beautiful week,

  2. Hi Julie,
    I just found your website and love it! Wondering where you found the golden bar cart? Something like that would be beautiful in my home!

    1. It was a piece I found on Craigslist, spray painted, and replaced mirrored glass with clear glass. You can find similar at Home Goods from time to time.

  3. Really beautiful setting! I love having freshly cut flowers around the house, but don’t use them often enough.

    1. Thanks Tanya! I’m making my centerpiece from a couple of inexpensive grocery store potted plants this week. They offer more stems for less. I hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving!
