My Halloween decorations were packed away Monday morning and I’ve been trying to decide how to decorate my Thanksgiving tablescape this year. As you all know I enjoy changing it up a bit from year to year. Since it’s only three weeks away I made myself a goal not to spend one cent, seriously not a single dollar. Therefore I had to draw my inspiration from what I had on hand.
As I took off for my morning run, the air had changed overnight bringing with it a true feel of fall. The sky was on the grey side but the air was as fresh as ever and the smell of nature was intoxicating. I was almost in a trance the entire hour.
As I entered my home I knew exactly what my tablescape was going to consist of.
The true colors of the natural scene I had just witnessed.
Therefore I chose to not cover my natural color wood table with a table cloth, but to keep it free . . .
The grey tone of the sky struck a cord with me this morning so I began pulling objects of such, like my silver punch bowl as the centerpiece.
Then I brought in white for an all over natural feel.
And some vintage white milk glass goblets.
I added soft wood tone candle sticks of varies sizes.
And then went outside and cut off some honeysuckle vines to lay over the table runner.
Tucked in some white pumpkins and some paper leaves . . .
Fresh artichokes and squash from the fridge and it was now set.
As a take home gift when my family comes for dinner I printed off a copy of a picture from my nature walks and a “thankful saying and modge-podged them on a piece of canvas.
I just love when nature blesses me with inspiration.
Linking up with Jann for SYC where you will certainly be fed inspiration.
