Wow – can you believe it’s November! We are entering the busiest time of the year, but so full of wonderful things! Today a group of bloggers have gathered together to share our Thanksgiving table decor! I hope you will get some great ideas from this group to use for your own Thanksgiving table!
The theme of my Thanksgiving table is “Count Your Blessings”. I created a custom tablecloth from cream colored burlap and “Count Your Blessings” on the sides and “One by One” on the ends. I’ll be sharing a tutorial later this week.
To keep with the “Count Your Blessings” theme, I created cards for each place setting so guests to take a moment before the meal and literally count (list) some of their many blessings. Atop each card is a wood pencil – I got these pencils years ago at HomeGoods (I still see them there for sale periodically). I bring them out each fall and winter for gatherings and games – they are so fun!
For my centerpiece, I used a large cornucopia that I purchased at Pottery Barn a few years ago (unfortunately, they no longer carry this). It’s large, but easy to move out of the way as needed. I used white pumpkins that I had outside, along with some indian corn, corn tassels, and dried seed pods to complete the look. The largest pumpkin pretty much fills the opening of the horn of plenty, and the other smaller pumpkins look like they are spilling out.
I scattered some pretty leaves and gold walnuts around the base of the cornucopia. Metallic gold spray paint was used to make those walnuts shine and the same paint made my old copper-colored chargers golden – to better suit the color scheme. The little gold mercury glass votives are from Michael’s. I purchased them last year for Josh and Sarah’s wedding and you can still find them there. They come in a pack of 12 (be sure to use a coupon)!
Each place setting features a cornucopia folded napkin holding a felted wool pumpkin place card and a few gold walnuts. You can see how I made the pumpkin place cards HERE. I’ll have a separate post later this week showing you how to fold your napkins to look like a horn of plenty!
I hope you’ll take time to visit all the other ladies sharing their Thanksgiving tables today. You can find links to each one below!
