I have fallen head over heels for all of the beautiful colors of pumpkins so widely available these days and was so excited to use them in this green and white tablescape all designed around these pumpkins. I hope this gives you some inspirations for your Thanksgiving table.
I have had a difficult time down here in Florida finding a good garden center, so finding the pumpkins has been a little bit of a challenge. I found them here and there and then I added in a few faux pumpkins and gourds to fill in my centerpiece. I began with an artificial garland of magnolia leaves and then tucked the pumpkins and gourds all along it, with the largest being in the center. The white flowers are artificial white heather I picked up at Hobby Lobby. I also mixed in some artificial eucalyptus.
I began with a sisal placemat and topped each one with a Fall charger. I love these wood-look chargers by Better Homes and Gardens for Walmart. With their leaves and pinecones these are perfect to set the stage for a Thanksgiving table. My natural wood flatware is from IKEA and the green goblets are from my mother.
I added a white plate to coordinate with the white and green pumpkins I was using for my centerpiece. It is always great to have a set of white dishes, they are like a little black dress for your dinner table.
I topped my white dinner plate with green salad plates in the Sierra pattern by Bonjour. These are just perfect for using from October through Christmas with their pinecone and pine needle design. I tucked a light green napkins beneath each salad plate, once again, trying to incorporate as many of the colors of the different gourds and pumpkins.
I really fell in love with these beautiful bowls with the elegant pumpkins on them. Can you imagine me serving up pumpkin soup in them? These were the perfect top to my plate stack, repeating the white from the dinner plate and incorporating the green from the salad plate.
This combination made for a beautiful tablescape with the green and white carried through from the natural elements to the dishes and glassware. I love using a low tablescape like this that runs the length of the table. I had so much fun creating this Thanksgiving tablescape.
I hope you are enjoying your Fall and all of the bounty of the harvest from our farms and gardens. I know I enjoy visiting the various Farmers’ Markets in my area. I look forward to Thanksgiving when family and friends will gather together. I will take this early opportunity to say how thankful I am for you, my readers. I really appreciate all of your comments and feedback and I look forward to hearing from you.
