One of my favorite things to decorate at the holidays is our dining room table! Today is extra special because I get to share our own Thanksgiving table along with 18 other talented bloggers and their table decor ideas. If you’re here from Laura’s of Decor to Adore a warm welcome, and a huge thank you to my friend Tammy of PINK PEPPERMINT DESIGNS for hosting this table tour and bringing us all together.
In case you are new here there are two things you should know about me-our house is always a work in progress and I love a great deal. So whether I’m doing a DIY or decorating a table I’m always looking for cost effective ways to make it happen.
When I pull together a tablescape it typically starts with one inspiration piece that gets the ball rolling in the direction the table decor will take. This year it was the faux protea stems from Target, I fell in love with the rich color as soon as I saw them.
I kept the rest of the table fairly neutral and just added a few layers of the gorgeous plum color.
I was able to use several items that I already owned which is my favorite way to keep costs down when decorating a table. The mud-cloth napkins are from World Market, unfortunately they are currently sold out but I’ve linked a few other options below.
BLACK AND WHITE NAPKINS
I found the succulents in the clearance section at Michaels, they were marked down to around .50 cents a piece. They make a great non-traditional napkin ring.
The MACRAME TABLE RUNNER adds so much texture and lightens up our heavy dark table. It also happens to be on sale this week 🙂
There is nothing like lighting a few candles to make an event feel special. I always make sure I have some candles on our holiday table. Even if you’re hosting your Thanksgiving meal during the day candles add a special ambiance.
The candle holders are all from World Market. I bought the larger mercury glass hurricanes, a bit of a splurge, but I know I can use them through out the holiday season.
This year we will be out of town for Thanksgiving but we plan on hosting a Friendsgiving prior to leaving. I hope this table makes our guests feel extra special!
Thank you for stopping by it was so fun to be able to share our Thanksgiving table with you!
