Modern Thanksgiving Tablescape

7:02:00 PM

If you are anything like me, you suffer from a bit of procrastination. and... if you're anything like me, you work best under the pressure that results from procrastination. We are a few days out from Thanksgiving and I'm trying to get my home ready for my family and friends. Today I want to share how I put together my last minute tablescape.

First things first you have to determine if you will be doing a tablecloth or a runner. I opted for a tablecloth and actually used fabric I received as a birthday gift. You will need to decide this upfront since much of your design will revolve around your choice.

Next, your guest will need something to eat off of and drink from. I picked up some silver square chargers and small dessert plates from At Home. I created a layered look by adding white plates I had on hand to the mix. I love mixing up shapes.

Next I visited Goodwill to pick up some glasses. Thrift stores are great for unique glasses....and because I tend to lean away form matching sets, it works perfect for me. I found two short glasses and two tall ones for $.99 a piece. I added these glasses to my gold ones from my Fall Bar Station.

I also added some candles that I had from my mother's birthday party. They are plain white candles from dollar tree, but if you want to get jazzy you can add liquid gold leaf to them.

Remember my Fall floral arrangement I put together? Well, I updated it with greenery from my local Kroger. Now-a-days I skip the flowers all together, they die too fast for me. I like to add plants by adding greenery. (Next month I'll change my mind and I'll be back on flowers) I found some baby breaths and branches on clearance and put them all together.

Lastly, I set my arrangement on a gold baking sheet that I found at the thrift store for $1.00.

IN SHORT, HERE ARE MY TIPS:

1. Use alternatives to tableclothes such as scarves or fabric
2. Go for the mix and match look with unique glasses
3. Skip the flowers and add natural looking greenery
4. Use unconventional items as part of your tablescape
5. Lastly, add candles
