With the holidays approaching, we all know the stress of what last minute company can do, last minute dinner plans at your home and your tablescape needs work, pronto!
Let me share with you a Step by Step Process of throwing together a luxurious looking Thanksgiving tablescapes with products found around your house. Trust me, no one will even know…in fact they’ll think you spent weeks designing your fabulous tablescape!
Step 1: Opt for a color palette that instantly reads “Thanksgiving” or colors of fall, this step alone is an easy way to trick your last minute guests into thinking this table scape require lots of thought and pre-planning.
Step 2: Choose multiple textures for to layer your look, this creates a more intimate setting that’s both warm an inviting…if you don’t have a linen or table runner, opt for quick pick items like (an old quilt, or blanket, cheese cloth or even scarf!
Step 3: Go “Shopping’ in your own Kitchen. I chose citrus and walnuts, colors that compliment fall already – Citrus is something I always have on hand, it’s honestly like my “emergency stash” go to centerpiece stash.
Step 4: Forge Around your Home or Borrow items from a neighbor: Forging is one of my favorite things to do. Simply grab a pear of craft scissors and take a nature walk, you can find elements like magnolia leaves or any type of fall leaves or seed pods which create a beautiful added texture. Next arrange these in your favorite serving bowls or vase collections.
Step 5: Finally, start by placing your linen texture down, and playing with various positions of your centerpiece elements. Next add your chargers and china, and don’t be scared to get creative with napkin placements, in design rules are meant to be broken. Pictured here, I’ve placed the striped yellow and white linen napkin in a horizontal fashion to break up the color of the wood and the rattan charger.
Don’t forget to keep Citrus around the house year round, it’s so versatile and can be used in each season.
