Silverware Print | Leaf Table Markers | Dried Wild Flowers
I've always loved the idea of adding pops of color to things. To everything. Give me a chance to create or decorate, and you can bet your buns I'll find a way to throw some pops of color in there. Thanksgiving is no different. I know we've had enough talk about pumpkins lately, but there are so many other great ways to mix and match your table setting, to make it colorful and fun this holiday.
Mixing pieces of China is a pretty given theme when it comes to setting your holiday table, but have you played with the idea of using florals, or even mixing in pottery? So many shades of color can be drawn from dishes like these... Also mixing and matching old sets of silverware can give a beautiful rustic look. Think about going foraging and collecting fall leaves, or drying wild flowers. Or bring in fake fruits for an added touch. Last but not least, I'm loving all the cool things people are doing with wood slices these days. Use one for a hot plate, or paint and decorate a slice with your favorite message.
What color theme or style are you going for this Thanksgiving? And what are some of your favorite traditions? As for me, going around the table and each of us sharing what we are thankful for, is one of my favorites... and if the opportunity arises, I also love putting down a white paper table cloth, and scattering crayons about, so everyone can draw and leave messages all along the table.
Happy weekend friends. It's just about time to kick these holidays into full gear!
