The name of this Thanksgiving's game is "Don't spend money on decor."
Fun theme. eh.
I have silver, not shiny silver, but silver chargers.
I'm going to use my everyday china which is plain and cream with a monogrammed "A" on the salad plate.
I have linen napkins with a subtle silver and gold detail with gold tassel napkin rings.
My casual china is similar to this.
Here's the challenge :
I have nothing else "Thanksgiving-y" for my table.
So I started thinking about a rustic tablescape...
Pine cone place cards...Dipped in gold paint?
Cam's cousin has a FABULOUS yard and kindly lets me steal magnolia leaves and other beautiful plant things. Will def be taking advantage of that again this year. Thank you Chrysler!
I also heard that she has a pomegranate tree so maybe I will dry those out and incorporate some of those.
Maybe add some pine cones and pears as well.
I have pheasant feathers that I plan on using on our tree this year.
They could easily be added to the table.
Basically, I have A LOT of ideas and materials but have NO clue how to incorporate metalllics and rustic pieces...
SO we will just have to see how I end up decorating my table for Thanksgiving.
Hopefully it is a "Southern Living-Martha Stewart-like-but-still-Susannah-Albriton dream holiday table."
aaaand if it's not, well the name sounds fabulous :)
As if I wasn't confused enough about how to steer my Thanksgiving tablescape and decor, I have this guy on my front door
He does not go with my style or taste what-so-ever but I think he is just the CUTEST.
That turkey makes me smile every time I pull into my driveway.
It's corny and silly and I. love. it.
