A Thanksgiving Table Fit for Any Gathering

Well, hello there!  Long time, no blog.  My world has been turned upside down, but I hope to pop in here a bit more just like the old days.  I have so much to tell you, but for now, let’s just start with our Thanksgiving table.  This was a “use what you have on hand at the moment” kind of table.

Starting with a cream table cloth that we’ve had since we got married, layered with gold wrapping paper and a navy chevron wrapping paper on top of it.  I absolutely love using wrapping paper for table settings.  It’s cheap and opens a world of endless options and if it gets spilt on, no worries.

For our centerpiece, I used fruit and nuts that were already in the house.

Didn’t bother with the china and used my everyday white.  I love white dishes.  They work for everything and make food look fabulous!  I used tags and my handy dandy washi tape for place setting tags.  Just tied them around the flatware with jute and used a gold Sharpie to write “thankful for you” to each person.

My love for trays continues.  They truly upgrade the look of a few bottles of wine on a counter to a little bar area.

And here’s a full view to give you a peek at the almost finished family room.  You can see the gallery wall and the shelves are back in place.

Well, that’s it for now.  We had a busy Thanksgiving weekend, including a mad scientist birthday for my son.  Hope to share some details with you sometime soon!  And there may just be a series called Never Before Seen Rooms.  Stay tuned…
