Hi there friends! Welcome to my blog!
If you are visiting for the STYLED SET HOLIDAY ENTERTAINING blog tour, Welcome!
Our home is always busy around the Holidays…what a wonderful time of year to welcome friends and family! And of course, one of my favorite times to decorate our dining room farm table.
I’m not one to have any “Fall Decor” stored up in boxes…instead, I enjoy using natural elements that provide a vintage, country farmhouse feel.
I started with a beautiful vintage French sheet from ELSIE GREEN, draped over the table.
Using fresh fall leaves, I created a garland centerpiece… with gourd- Cinderella type pumpkins down the center of the table. I really like the subtle colors against the white.
I decided to keep the mantle very simple…French jars for another pop of color.
As chargers, I used my round French bread boards. They make a good contrast with the ivory China. And I used plain ball jars instead of traditional glasses.
I thought it might be fun to just place the napkins into the top of the jars. That way, each guest can grab their napkin before pouring the drinks. In the background here below, you can see our buffet table. It has a French bottle drying rack, an olive tree, and a few aprons hanging in easy reach. And there’s always a stack of extra dishes.
The last element I added, is the French pitch pots with candles and tiny pinecones. The candles are four different scents from Ivy and Stone Home…and make a pretty soft glow against the pinecones.
The pears were added at the end, and I thought they compliment the fall leaves so nicely. All my favorite colors, in one table setting!
And our table is all set for Thanksgiving! All we need is a kitchen full of turkey and dressing…and a table full of family.
I hope this inspires you to create something beautiful for your loved ones this Holiday season! Can you believe how fast the season is approaching?! Remember, you don’t have to spend a lot of money on Fall decor. A few branches, fresh fruit, and pumpkins make a pretty, all-natural Thanksgiving Table, perfect for entertaining! Keep it simple, and enjoy yourself!
