Table Time

I really can’t believe it is almost Thanksgiving! While I will be mourning the loss of the company of my grandmother and her traditional recipes, I am also ready to create my own tablescape this year at home in Florida with my parents. I am on an anti-orange theme this Fall. I am all about the white and green for pumpkins. Of course, I always love to throw in some blue and white too.

My problem this year, was that my mom doesn’t have any blue & white china (shocking, I know). I want a crisp table, lots of candlelight, small white and green pumpkins running down the center, and a strong but soft green linen placemat with blue and white china. Unfortunately, my mom’s 90’s English yellow dining room won’t be the perfect backdrop, but I will let it slide…. 🙂

What ideas have you all come up with for your perfect turkey table? Here is some inspiration and all together pretty palettes that have been inspiring me for Thanksgiving.

P.S. My friend Blair from the Perennial Style made an excellent turkey for “Friendsgiving” using this technique.


My all over color palette. I actually purchased 4 place settings of this exact pattern on amazon for $100. Really hoping the quality is okay. The sterling is from my family collection. Also, I ordered Moss Green Sferra festival placemats to go on a white Sferra linen tablecloth.  Votives scattered throughout the table will also bring a nice ambience.



I love the more casual feel of this place setting with the Fench striped napkins. The rosemary on the name cards are a very nice touch.  via Eleven Gables
