Styling A Romantic And Elegant Thanksgiving Table
I cleared off the sideboard buffet, that really is a vintage dresser from a friend:~). Knowing that I wanted to go with the roses, I decided to do a pink and blue theme…color comes first to me in styling a table.
These vintage planters don’t hold water, so I used a Mason jar in each and filled out the bouquets with last week’s stock and greenery cut from my garden.
Next step was a centerpiece and I plopped this pale blue cinderella pumpkin onto a cake plate. It’s low enough to see over the center of the table and I filled it in with some pinecones and acorns.
I covered the rustic table for this setting with a vintage French lace tablecloth for the pale look that I had in mind. The underplates are my every day white plates from Pottery Barn and the blue and white plates are French antique ironstone that I love and use as often as possible.
The white baby boos are plastic and I painted them with chalk style paint. You can see more about that HERE if you’d like more fall inspiration.
Tip: I used some paper shredding from packing material on the top of the faux stem for texture.
I may have a slight obsession with monogrammed linens that is close to hoarding, even if they don’t match up with my initials.
