Thanksgiving is right around the corner and thoughts of tablescapes come to mind, gathering friends and family around the table. Setting a pretty table is on the forefront for most women and a warm inviting dining room goes hand in hand with this classic holiday that we all love and savor.
With a few thought out plans, it’s easy to set a pretty dining table. I’m using a couple of items from Tree Classics in my dining room this year and it makes for a festive occasion, bringing in the deep red colors of Fall right into Christmas.
Even though it’s not Christmas yet, it’s fun to think outside the box and come up with ideas on using a pretty centerpiece that is classically Christmas, but why not incorporate it for Thanksgiving too? It’s an easy way to stretch those decorating dollars and use this Classic Christmas Evergreen centerpiece for the entire season. It’s made to hold candles, but why not use pretty white pumpkins for a Thanksgiving table? Don’t be locked into one mindset when it comes to setting a pretty table. The faux foliage is pretty, with red berries, gold pinecones, and wispy accents. Adding a few pinecones and acorns to the mirror underneath adds another dimension to the centerpiece.
The Winterberry Christmas wreath is also a festive touch above the sideboard. Red is traditionally a Christmas color, but with the deep red Autumn leaves I added to a vase, the colors all flow together and say Fall in a pretty understated way. Clipping branches from my yard is one of the best ways to bring the outdoors in this time of year. Pumpkins are always associated with Thanksgiving and Fall and they can come in many shapes and forms. I layered a burlap wreath on top of the pretty red Winterberry wreath for extra texture and interest. Adding ribbon in green and red pulls it all together.
Adding the colors of Fall brings together a dining room for Thanksgiving and on into Christmas. It’s easy to transition from one holiday to the next with a few key pieces in place. And when Thanksgiving is over, just take away the pumpkins, and add more gold glitz and candles to the centerpiece to transition right on into Christmas. The holidays are meant to be shared with those special people in our lives and adding a few pretty accents in the dining room goes a long way to creating that warm and cozy feeling we all want in our homes.
I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
