As my husband and son are watching videos of turkeys (little Will is going to be one in the preschool Thanksgiving program tomorrow, so, you know, he has to get in character!) we’re thinking about setting the Thanksgiving table. Just one glance at this unbelievable Bronson Van Wyck-designed table (we’ve also talked about him here and here) is enough to make us feel in full-on turkey mode too!
We’re major, major fans of the white pumpkin. Because, let’s face it: While festive, the orange pumpkin doesn’t exactly mesh beautifully with just any decor.
This tabletop is a perfect example of white done right in Loi Thai perfection. The antlers, soft candlelight, ideally proportioned pumpkins and gorgeous hydrangeas are just too good! We want to copy this one!
But, on the other hand, pops of color can be cool too. This is an earthy, organic looking spread. Very farm to table.
Have you ever seen anything like these pumpkins handprinted by our friend Karolyn, at The Relished Roost? How gorgeous would they be gracing any Thanksgiving table? We know who else LOVES these: our friend Tina from The Enchanted Home!
A little bit traditional, a little bit modern. All the way fabulous!
This is so beautifully delicious, decadent in its utter simplicity. Recipe please, OKL!
The best thing about the Thanksgiving table is that all of its components are so utterly beautiful all on their own. There’s no way to go wrong with this one!
Gold, gorgeous colors, green hydrangeas, textured gourds… What’s not to love? It’s like the best of all possible worlds!
This is a holiday all about the harvest. This beautiful arrangement brings it center stage!
We’ve never seen gourds in quite this shade of pink before. Beautiful!
These might take the cake for most creative place cards!
Whimsical yet lovely… We couldn’t have set is better ourselves! What’s on tap for your Thanksgiving table? We’d love to see what you’re cooking up!
