Today's topic, Table Setting.
What I appreciate about Thanksgiving dinners is that, typically, they are done in an intimate setting at home with immediate family. I realize that for some, especially those with huge families, it is a bigger event and prefer to go out to a restaurant versus slaving in the kitchen. I guess one of the few goods things with my family is that we are pretty small since other family members live in other states or countries.
Around this time of year, I tend to decorate our home for the season versus Halloween and Thanksgiving. Over the years, I have collected pumpkin themed decor to sprinkle around my house but honestly, I would like to have more. The color scheme in the interior of my house, however is navy blues and greys. I try to get fall decor that goes with those colors, not the typical fall colors. It can be a little challenging but I have found some goodies at Homegoods/TJ Maxx/Marshalls and Target.
This weekend I was on a mission to get things to create a pretty table setting. I have a centerpiece that I purchased at the beginning of the season from Kirkland's but still wanted to get some additional pieces like chargers and napkins. As always, I perused Pinterest for inspiration and found this setting that goes well with what I have so far.
As for our serving platters, you can see that I have some that I purchased a couple years ago from JCPenney's after Thanksgiving. They were all on red tag aka CHEAP. Aren't they gorgeous? I am excited to finally use them for the first time!
I went a lil' cray cray this weekend buying more casserole dishes. We have some but not enough for all our sides. I scored some on clearance at Marshalls and found the rest of these white ones are from Tuesday Morning. Coordination heaven.
Excuse the poor lighting. I took this picture at night.
Well, there you have my inspiration for our table setting. I will share with you all later this week how everything turns out including some of the other decor we have throughout the house. At the end of this week, we will start the full transition to Christmas (already have my Christmas tree up) and I can't wait!
