Thanksgiving Tablescapes

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I’m sure there is all kinds of 
Holiday prep happening at your place.

Did you make up the menu and decide on your desserts? Have you chosen who’s eating at your house and whether you’re going to attempt Black Friday shopping?

There are a lot of decisions that go into making this Holiday a memorable one.
Since I’m sure you’ve being stressing and planning your menu, have you given any thought to your décor?
You can’t have your turkey dressed and not your table…

I’ve pulled a few designs that I hope will give you inspiration to create your own table décor, or give you guidance you were looking for.

Happy Thanksgiving

 Beauty all around You

I love the idea of using seasonal pumpkins for your centerpieces. The small or the medium size, or a mixture of both to add height and contrast. In the photos below the white pumpkins really pop against the colorful table runner. How pretty would they be if you painted them silver or gold. 

Keep it Simple

 For the more modern and minamilist household I suggest a less cluttered table and pick one item as a focal point. The tablecloth or table runner, the centerpieces, candals or the place settings. Go for bold colors on the big items, and classic white dining peices. 

Creativity is King

You can learn how to make these charming paper flowers, here. 
What a way to impress your guests, by giving them a beautiful hand crafted table centerpiece. A DIY tablescape cuts on cost and is a great conversation starter. I live the mix of colors; blush, periwinkle and the rosy orange. You can pick whatever colors match your home. Or mix it up a bit with patterened scrapbook paper.

New York- my style {{ Brooklyn Hipster }}

One of the things my boyfriend hates most about me is that I like to blog my fashion. While I was in New York I was totally tuned into the urban street vibe. Matching high and low end styles and making sure comfort was my #1 priority. 

When I think of the streets of New York I see dark alleys and brick and foggy streets. 

Much different than my regular bright California attire, I packed nothing but black and a bit of white for my trip. And this was one of my favorite outfits. edgy but tailored
