A Soft Romantic Thanksgiving Tablescape...




Thanksgiving  is a lovely time every year to spend celebrating the day with our families and friends.
 This year we are blessed that our daughter will be flying up from Austin for a few days to spend the holiday with us.
We have so much to be thankful this year and on this happy note I've set out to create an ethereal romantic table styling to share with y'all...

This is my inspiration
A photograph I happened upon while out visiting another blogger led me to an older photograph created by my friend Courtney Allison for her blog French Country Cottage a few years ago.
I just love this gathering of storybook pumpkins and roses and you absolutely must stop by and see the rest of her photographs.
Simply stunning!


Courtney recently published her first home decor book titled French Country Cottage and if you haven't ordered her new book yet you'll love it when it arrives! 
{hope that links works for you.}



A lot in common
We have a lot in common as I like soft tablescapes roses and chandeliers as Courtney does, so today I thought I'd share the makings of an easy-to-create Thanksgiving table setting you can use for your own holiday table.


The loveliest pink roses with green outer leaves... sigh!  Very similar to Eden roses found at Heirloom Roses.com.


Setting the scene
Pick out one of your prettiest vintage embroidered linen tablecloths and lay it katycorner across your table ~ almost as a runner ~  then add in a vase of your favorite flowers.  
These store bought pink roses with just a hint of green in the outer leaves grace our table this time.

Use a beautiful vase for displaying your bouquet then
begin surrounding your vase with softly colored
mini pumpkins and sprinkling in a few larger
Cinderella pumpkins for added oomph.




Pretty place settings
Bring out your most romantic china pieces placing them atop a woven grass placemat.
This gives such a nice contrast of textures to your  Thanksgiving table.
Next with the addition of some pretty silver tucked into a floral napkin ring along with a cute checked napkin you'll have a table set to inspire.
Pretty. Romantic. Ethereal.




Here is  a list where you can pick up these same or similar items to help you recreate this table styling:

buffalo checked napkins 
woven braided placemats
vintage silver water pitcher
vintage silverplate flatware
crystal stemware

This is not a sponsored post ~ just sharing links I think you'll love. 
:)



So what are you doing for Thanksgiving?
Having anyone special coming over to
share the meal?  Hope so.  :)




This little gold pheasant or quail I found last year at a local thrift shop and I think this little feathered friend adds a nice gilded touch to the tablescape...
;)



As an added bonus here is another table styling I created using the same pumpkins and place settings just moved to a table pour deux.

I'll share more on that next week.
;)



Do stop by  again tomorrow to find out more about the little craft project you see here on the table.
A hint?
See those pumpkins... they aren't all real.

    1. Thank you, Jeanie! I'm glad you like my little pumpkin table. No problem on the package! Some weeks are crazy like that. Oh, I finally found some Baby Boo pumpkins and grabbed them when I did. They were at our local Calloways Garden Center for a good price right after Halloween.

      Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family,
      Hugs and blessings,
      Barb <3
