HappyThanksgiving! Thanksgiving Tablescape!

Hi there!

First of all, I'd like to take this opportunity to wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Ours has been good.  My mother came into town with a good friend of our family's and my neice!  So with a total of 7 of us for dinner, I wanted to have a nice table set up for the special dinner.

I had a Fall/Thanksgiving Tablescape all set up, but as the date was approaching, I was realizing I wanted a little change from our traditional Thanksgiving Tablescapes I've done in the past.  So...I decided last minute to switch things up a bit!   And here is what I came up with.

 I've been wanting to do a burlap tablescape for a while, and I found some nice burlap runner fabric at Walmart the other day, so I decided to pick it up.  After seeing a few pretty burlap tablescapes on Pinterest, I decided to put my own little twist on one.  

The Centerpiece has  a silver candleabra from Michaels, with White pillar candles wrapped with the remaining burlap fabric from the table runner, some silver curling ribbon and a little silver and white sparkle medalion (one fell off, as you can see...haha!)  on either side of those are my white Ikea pillar candle holders, and on the sides of those are these cute little lidded pumpkin bowls I found at Goodwill.   Such a great find!  Also, there were little glass tealight holders throughout the center of the table to give it some glow.

 Each place setting had my Walmart Silver Charger plates, my white dinner plates and bowls from the Dollar Tree, my little Pier 1 flower bowls (which I ended up using as individual butter dishes for each guest.)   I also used the white napkins with these cute silver napkin rings (6 for $1 at the Dollar Tree!) and my "fancy silverware" from Goodwill (another great find!)

It was a blessing to have family here for Thanksgiving and to serve them at this table!   We all had a lot to be thankful for and we got to share some of the things we were thankful for at the table! It was a nice time!

Now, I'm going to lie down for a bit, because I stuffed myself so full of turkey and fixins, that I'm feeling the need to loosen my pants and kick back for a while!   haha!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Tablescape Thursday


  1. Very pretty! I like the white and burlap!

  2. Thank you so much for the nice comments on my blog on Tablescape Thursday!
    I must say I love your white, silver, and burlap combination. It's very elegant and a little rustic.
    It works very well together. I love your white pumpkin bowls what a great find.
    Hope you had a great Thanksgiving, and thanks again.

  3. Well, hello there, ma'am, and Happy Greetings of the Christmas season to you!!!

    I love the twist you gave to your Thanksgiving Day tablescape! This year I think many of us have kind of felt the need to go there. Christmas is so close to Thanksgiving with little time to spare making changes from one holiday to another. What you've done with this table can easily transition into Christmas with just a few changes, and that makes it double the pleasure with half the work!

    Burlap is a huge part of my Christmas decor this year. It's got such a great texture, and I really love the way you used it here both on the table and the candles. At the age of 56 I JUST learned how to iron burlap!!! I have always just thrown it away after a single use in the past. This year, though, I had trusty Pinterest on my side! :-) This burlap will see years and years of use!

    I hope you have recovered from your tryptophan tiredness and are all ready to jump into the Christmas season! Take care of yourself, and have a happy season!

    1. Thank you very much! Yes, I had seen a lot of lovely tablescapes online that used the burlap and it just looked so pretty! I also had no idea that you could iron burlap! What a cool tip! Pinterest is awesome, isn't it??? I hope you had a great Holiday season and a good New Year so far! Thanks so much for stopping by!!! =D
