Gather ‘Round: Thanksgiving Table Inspiration

Happy Thanksgiving guys!!  So nice of you to take time away from stuffing your face full of delicious turkey-day food to stop by my little blog.  Since you’re here, take a gander at some beautiful tablescapes designed for this food filled holiday.


I just love the rough-sewn wooden table mixed with the metal chairs for this dining set.  Popped with purple napkins and a versatile magnolia garland as the centerpiece, this is a beautiful more modern take on Thanksgiving dining by Apartment 34.Samantha-Pattillo-hunted-interiorI can’t tell you how much I LOVE this colorful floral design by one of my favorite bloggers, Kristen from the Hunted Interior. And the paper feather, genius!Samantha-Pattillo-thanksgiving-4The fact that this set up incorporates a bench in their seating arrangement is just so smart.  If you’re like me, you have tons of little ones running around at family events (none are mine thank god, lol) and having a long bench to cram more of those tiny butts around the dinner table is super handy.  When you’re all kids at heart, the main table IS the kid’s table!

(photos: left/right)Samantha-Pattillo-thanksgiving-7Gold and brass finishes are so ‘in’ right now, mixing them in with silver and bronze candlesticks makes this very traditional style more updated.  The whole look feels so casual and inviting…just hope it doesn’t rain… ;)Samantha-Pattillo-thanksgiving-3For a holiday that is centered around hunting, killing, and eating a giant bird, why wouldn’t you add some big game antlers in with your decor? No vegans allowed at these tablesSamantha-Pattillo-thanksgiving-10I have to admit, when it comes to winter holidays, Pottery Barn always brings it to the table (pun intended haha) Screw Thanksgiving, I want to get married here!Samantha-Pattillo-thanksgiving-5Everything in these photos is meant to be paired with a fantastic bottle of Pinot Noir.  Cheers!

Who are we kidding, all of these tablescapes are gorgeous, but they can’t compete with the most beautiful table decoration of all…THE TURKEY and all the sides we love that cover the table to share with our family and friends.  Happy Turkey Day loves, don’t forget to share what you are most thankful for today, and every other day of the year.

Vickie - Love the magnolia garland on the Thanks Giving table! Where did you get the magnolia garland is it fresh or silk?

Thank you!
