Thanksgiving Fall Tablescape

It doesn’t seem to matter if we are ready or not, Fall is creeping in all around us.  The artificial pumpkins are on sale and the Christmas decorations are coming out.   I am heading up to Ohio this year for a big family Thanksgiving celebration.  I will enjoy the cool weather for a few days.  I do love Fall.  Perhaps it is the colors, I have always looked best in Fall colors, I loved getting new clothes for the beginning of school.  As with any holiday, or anytime I have family gathered together, I really enjoy setting a pretty table.  This is the table I set for our small celebration last year.
Fall Tablescape 6This pretty floral cloth is decorated with such rich colors and can be used most any time of year, but seems perfect for Fall.   I wanted to delineate each place setting more than with just the chargers, so I added basic green woven placemats.Fall Tablescape 7I found these cute little owl plates at Cracker Barrel.  I think they add a little bit of whimsy to each place.  I tucked a parchment Fall leaf under each little owl.  I really enjoy using these leaves tucked under cheeses when setting out a display, too.  You can find these at gourmet stores, or just order those pretty paper leaves and have them delivered directly to you.  If you haven’t used these in a cheese display, you would be amazed what a difference they will make.Fall Place Setting  I love to use these chargers, they look like they are wood and carved with pinecones and pine needles, but they are actually a heavy plastic.  They are made by Better Homes and Gardens for WalMart.  The gold dinner plates I have had for years. The green salad plates are perfect for coordinating with those chargers, repeating the pine look.  These are the Sierra pattern by Bonjour.  I used these on a Thanksgiving table this year that I styled all in green and white.   I love how this combination incorporates all of the colors of Autumn.

I added a variety of pheasant feathers to my centerpiece, so I thought the little feathers on the individual napkins was a nice touch.  My centerpiece is meant to be a statement piece when guests arrive, and then will be moved to a sideboard.  The log slice trivet it is sitting on will remain on the table to hold a hot dish and protect the the table.

Fall Tablescape 4The centerpiece is an arrangement I made with magnolia leaves, artificial gourds and feathers.  I sat the arrangement on a wood slice and tucked some fabric pumpkins around it.  See how I created my arrangement here.Fall tablescape 3May you and your family be blessed this Thanksgiving and throughout the coming year.

  1. I just about sucked all the air out of the room when I saw that centerpiece, Chloe! Goodness gracious, sakes alive!! Those pheasant feathers in the centerpiece are just SO fabulous!!! They really kick it up a notch! I like the way you repeated the feather down closer to the table’s surface. Nice touch. Beautiful tablecloth, too, with such rich colors in an intricate pattern that really speaks to the fall season.
