A Thanksgiving Table

I wanted to say “Thanks!” for all of your encouraging words left in the comments of my last post HERE. I’m so thankful for each of you and your support.

And…Thanks for coming back today!

One of my favorite things to do this time of year is set our farm table…so,  I used branches from our pasture, mini pumpkins, and lavender from the garden. I really love the pops of fall colors that the leaves and pumpkins bring.

I also cut out several leaves from vintage music sheets…and I was going to use them for placecards, however, decided I liked the simplicity of each leaf atop the folded napkins. 

Thanksgiving Table 3 

I also plan to use the music sheet leaves for our “Thankful Tree”…which I will share in my next post :)

And during the Fall it’s nice to bring in the bistro chairs for a little more rustic look.

Thanksgiving Table 14

Did you notice I painted my tabletop white? It was weathered gray…but I just couldn’t stand it any longer. So, a few weeks ago, I painted it in VALSPAR “bistro white” kitchen & bath enamel. Then I distressed the edges and small spots on the top. Now I’m trying to decide to paint the bench or not?

This is just one possible Thanksgiving Day tablescape. But, there are so many possibilities.

You can see how I set my kitchen table last November HERE.

I’ll share my Thankful Tree soon and some holiday crafts I plan to try.

Did you take the Home for the Holidays Creatively Made Home E-Course?

It was packed full of wonderful Holiday ideas…

What are you planning for Thanksgiving this year? I’d love to hear :)

I’m sharing with Courtney at Feathered Nest Friday :)

Such a beautiful Fall inspired table setting, Becky! I'm still wanting to do up a table setting as well, but I should have gathered some leaves still on the branches earlier because I'm afraid after the storm that rolled through here yesterday, all the leaves are now on the ground...and very wet!

Thanks for stopping by and I love everything you do, as well and am always happy when one of your posts pop up on my sidebar. I'm off to pin some of these lovely photos:-)

Have a great weekend!

Becky, your Thanksgiving table is absolutely beautiful! I was kind of busy and hadn't planned on looking into any of the emails. BUT there is something about your posts and photo's that just sparks my energy, so I couldn't help myself and here I am, haha.
~ Love, Nina ~

I love it!!! All the white sigh. That is what i am going for too. We are repainting our vintage farmhouse table white too. The top has been sanded light wood but i want to white wash it. So your post encourages me.

Sue said...

I love your autumn post. Such wonderful ideas for Thanksgiving.

I LOVE your white tabletop. It was a nice inspiration for me as I am going back and forth about painting mine. I really think I am ready for the white instead of the stain that it is in. I think it will really bring it to life a bit more. So thank you! Any good advice for painting it?

Anne said...

Beautiful tablescape Becky! LOVE your table painted white.My farmhouse table is white too! Well most things are in my house lol!

Baby pumpkins are always a welcomed item this time of year. love how you have used them and the sheet music leaves are just adorable.

Pat said...

Love your table setting! Did you make the napkins? Are they made out of drop cloths? I am thinking of using a drop cloth and making napkins for my table. Dropcloths seem to be everywhere and I several banquet tables that I put in a square shape for my gang that are coming.

Hi Becky,
Your tablescape is gorgeous, love the branches, I love bringing in branches too and the blue glass bottles give everything a pop of freshness, just lovely!!

Cindy said...

Your farm table is set beautifully, Becky. The white table top is lovely.
Congratulations on having your blog featured in Romantic Homes.

If you want 2 cents...I'd paint it, but I'd paint it a deep rich gray.
