Thankgiving table inspiration

Maggie

We're not hosting Thanksgiving (whew!) but I thought I'd see for experiment's sake what kind of tables etting I could come up with out of our own cupboards. This look was my favorite and was pretty simple. tablesetting

For the table runner I used a piece of plaid fabric I rescued from the remnant bin at Joann's a few weeks ago for just a few dollars. I loved the traditional and fall feel. The centerpiece is actually the same one we used at our Halloween party: Spray-painted mini-pumpkins and faux leaves on my white cake stand. This is where painting the pumpkins a festive metallic instead of creepy black pays off -- it works all season.

For each place-setting I used the Fiestaware-inspired dishes Ryan had in his bachelor pad with the salad plates I had from Crate and Barrel. A water glass made from recycled wine bottles sits in the upper corner with a simple wine glass. I tied a branch of Chinese Lantern flowers to a linen napkin and secured it with a bit of burgandy ribbon that I had leftover from another project.

The oranges and reds contrast nicely with the plaid and bring out the subtle red stripe. The whites keep everything looking fresh and I think the golden pumpkins add a bit of holiday cheer.

I bet you could mix and match items from your own cupboards and come up with a whole new look too!
