As we gear up for Thanksgiving, my mind has turned to tablescapes. Let’s face it: I would much rather set a pretty table than cook. I mean, I love eating, but cooking all day long is not my idea of fun. This year, I wanted to some different looks, because it’s fun. For the most part, I’m trying to use items that I already own. My first look is a pink and gold tablescape that is romantic and sweet.
When my kids came home and saw the table set like this, they were impressed! It was such a fun thing to witness. Even kids can appreciate a fancy tablescape!
I love owning white dishes because they are so versatile!
I grabbed a piece of fabric to act as a base for my center piece. It’s just a scrap of drop cloth, but I love the texture. The centerpiece is composed of pink hydrangeas in stemless wine glasses to keep the arrangement low enough to see over. Eucalyptus and fake gold anter sprigs are layered around the flowers. I also added little squashes. I wanted white pumpkins, but because I bought these after Halloween, there were no white pumpkins in the stores. Hydrangea leaves add more texture. Then I layered in candles sitting on branch coasters (tutorial coming soon!)
Each setting includes a pretty gold placemat, both sizes of plates (which my kids loved) and pretty pink napkins with a gold napkin ring. I also included green glasses to echo the green in the centerpiece.
It was such a pretty table, full of fun texture and interest. This might be as neutral as I can get!
