There are several factors that make Thanksgiving one of the all-time best holidays.
Food, family, and a Festive atmosphere!
Since I’m spending the holiday in Colorado with family this year and thus won’t be able to decorate my own table, I figure the next best thing is to write a blog touching on some of my favorite ways to adorn your thanksgiving smorgasbord.
Pumpkins and gourds are a great, and easy way to add interest to your holiday table. We recommend gathering a collection of different sizes and shapes. To keep it cohesive, stick to one color palette. I personally love the look of these white pumpkins perhaps mixed with some gray ones as well. Neutrals are an emerging trend and with the winter holiday season approaching, it is best to put the bold & colorful palettes to rest for the season.
If you’re feeling ambitious, you can choose to dress up or decorate a few of your pumpkins. I love this one pictured below; perfect for the season, and after all, nothing says class like some accents of gold. For this, all you need is a gold Sharpie and a steady hand!
Another way to dress up your table is to add some candlelight (which can be accomplished in countless ways). If I was decorating my own table this year, you can bet I would be using these brass candlesticks!
Going along with the theme of neutrals, I love both of these floral combinations. They embody the warm feel of fall while also adding interest to the table with a variety of textures, while not hogging too much attention given the softer color tones.
Do you have any favorite Thanksgiving traditions? From as early as I can remember one of my Aunts would place 5 kernels of corn at each place setting to signify the rations that the Pilgrims were given to serve as a reminder of those desperate days in the first winter when the food of the Pilgrims was so depleted that only five grains of corn were rationed to each individual at a time.
I can’t wait to spend the day with family and reflect on all that I am thankful for this year. It’s been an amazing year with lots of weddings, wonderful clients, new friends, and some fun travels. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
