Thanksgiving Table

Hi there!  I am so glad you stopped by.

Thanksgiving is Thursday!  Boy, did that sneak up on me.  

I love the holidays and look forward to all the friend and family get togethers. 

I especially enjoy decorating and making our home warm and cozy, for our guests. 

I want to show you some of the ideas I came up with for decorating my table. One is a little rustic, the other a little more "fancy".

Hopefully, this will give you a little inspiration and show you how easy it is to take what you have around your house, to make an inviting table.

For this one, I used chargers I got at Walmart last year, on clearance, after the holidays. Don't have chargers, use napkins, wrapping paper or strips of burlap.  Use your imagination and use what you have around your house.

Simply add candles, some greens and pine cones.

I bought the green leaf cut outs at Hallmark, half off. Score!  I slipped them in between the 2 plates just to give it a little dimension.

I also got the little acorn cut outs that say "I am thankful for".  I am going to have all our guests write what they are thankful for this year, put them in a basket and take them out one by one.  We will read them and try to figure out who wrote them.

For the other style I used gold chargers that I got as a gift from my girlfriends. 

Don't you just love the candle with it's own mind, leaning to the side? 

For this look I added color with some fall leaves and berries. 

The flower in the middle of the plate, as well as the berries, I bought as a bunch.  I popped the flowers off the stems and laid them on the plate.  For the berries, I just cut the bunch apart and added them for color.

So, which one do you like? More elegant or casual?

Thanks so much for stopping by.  It means the world to me!

Happy Thanksgiving!
