There’s something so sweet about coming together around the table with family and friends. With the daily hustle and bustle of life it’s often a challenge to get together, but the holidays give us an opportunity to do so. This year I’m excited to share our tablescape ideas for Thanksgiving. Mom and I kept the color scheme neutral, white and green. To keep a good mix of natural elements and textures for this setting, we incorporated greenery under the cinderella pumpkins. This creates an elaborate centerpiece with little effort—giving a very whimsical look.
We made place cards with our favorite hand lettered script. I love that special personal touch for each guest to know they were thought of in advance. If you’re using real pumpkins for your table and are setting it early, we have a tip for keeping pumpkins fresh: Rub down the exterior of your pumpkin with lemon juice. We have no idea what the menu will include this year, but the table is set and we’re ready for our guests!
Remember that hosting and gathering isn’t about the perfect centerpieces, it’s about enjoying the ones you love! I’d love to see how you spruce up your table for the holidays. Tag us on Instagram @Shopfarmhouseliving and use the hashtag #FarmhouseLiving.
