When I thought about what I wanted our Thanksgiving table to look like…I knew that I wanted to re-purpose these DIY faux pumpkins and use them as the centerpieces, but I also wanted to take it up a notch with some sparkle and gold accents (of course!) to reflect the light. Even though the overall feel of the table was going to be non-traditional, I still used some traditional tableware and other earthy elements (fresh flowers, deer antlers, and miniature pumpkins), to ground it.
You will recognize all of the pumpkins from our Fall Home Tour. They transitioned beautifully onto the Thanksgiving table.
I love the view looking into the dining/formal living room from the kitchen…
I actually scored the gold rimmed dinner plates (they came with a 12 pc setting) and these darling salad bowls in Canton, TX…which is one of my favorite places of…ever. The salad bowls definitely show some wear, but I like them for that…they were loved and used…and so often we no longer break out our “good stuff” to entertain with anymore.
The napkins were a fun and easy DIY that I will share soon. I loved the bold fuchsia pop for this table, but didn’t want to invest in a full set of monogrammed fuchsia napkins…so I improvised and made these for around $20 total.
The gold sequin fabric is from Hancocks and made such a pretty bottom layer. The hold sequins reflect the light perfectly.
If you remember from the Faux Pumpkin Vase DIY post, you’ll know that I mixed faux and real flowers to achieve a beautiful and colorful arrangement, even when most of the flowers are out of season. I did the same thing here and love the outcome. I also added some feathers for extra height and dimension.
I loved how everything looked by candlelight and even started to think that this table would also be perfect for a “Friendsgiving” Brunch with a bunch of your girlfriends! Next year, for sure!
