Thanksgiving Table Recap and Tutorial
Where has the time gone?
I keep asking myself this every day.
Here we are again…
Thanksgiving has come and gone
and Christmas will be here before we know it.
It seems like yesterday when I was posting Christmas Cheer from Georgia.
and now it’s going to be in Arizona.
I am finally to a point where I can decorate in the new house.
We still are not completely unpacked, but hey,
holidays with friends and family gatherings are much more important.
This year Joe’s brother and his wife were here for Thanksgiving.
We wanted to make it special as we had not seen them for a couple of years.
I set the table early, because I knew planning the menu and cooking would keep me busy
and I wanted a nice tablescape for the big dinner.
Do you want to see what I did?
Here you go…
The table was full of ruffles to give a relaxed and romantic feel.
Layered with candelabras, mercury glass, pumpkins, pine cones, and greenery.
The mercury glass and water glasses are Home Goods finds,
the pine cone was found at Lake Tahoe,
the pumpkins and glass square candle jars are Dollar Store finds,
the pedestal, candelabra, and pear are garage sale and Goodwill,
and the dinnerware is from Ballard Designs.
I grabbed what I had on hand and made the best of it.
The ruffled tablecloth is two bed-skirts layered one on top of the other and topping it off is a linen tablecloth.
I’ve had these bed-skirts for years, but you can find similar ones here.
The Dollar Store Pumpkin and Glass Candle Holders were given a little gold “bling” to add to the fall color scheme.
They were very easy to do.
Here are the supplies…
Dollar Store glass candle holder, pumpkins, and a paint brush.
the secret ingredient is
It’s as easy as painting it on…
and taping off the glass jar,
Eventually you will have a candle holder that looks like this…
These candle holders can be used over and over again, not just for Thanksgiving.
Imagine the possibilities with Liquid Leaf.
There you have it…
an easy tablescape for Thanksgiving or any fall festive dinner.
Now on to decorating for Christmas!
Every. Single. Moment.
