thanksgiving // two ways

I LOVE fall but I feel like fall decor gets kind of neglected because everyone (cough cough... me) is so excited to whip out the Christmas decorations. So, I've rounded up two ideas for Thanksgiving tablescapes to make your fall feast beautiful! 

I got inspired by a few pins that I've had my eye on. All of these outdoor spaces are so beautifully fall-like with the rustic colors of orange and gold mixed with greens and blues. Each element has some rustic wood touches as well. 

Below I've put together a "Rustic Thanksgiving" for indoors or out. I started with the Stafford Reclaimed Table from Pottery Barn because it's a stunner! I love the arts + crafts style trestle leg. It looks perfectly rustic. How cool are those spindle chairs too? I love them. I have mixed feelings about rugs under dining tables but I feel like, if you do it, it HAS to be easy to clean. That's why I love the indoor / outdoor options from Dash + Albert.

If you're dining outside, you've got to warm up the space so, along with the rug, I also included a couple of pillows in a beautiful floral + a basket of throw blankets for when dinner is finished and everyone is full and happy and sitting around the table talking. The best way to end a dinner, IMO.

On to Thanksgiving Tablescape #2! The "winter white" Christmas decor theme is pretty popular but white pumpkins are almost as popular as orange these days. With that in mind, I created a "creamy white" fall theme for your sophisticated but classically simple Thanksgiving meal. This one is bright and light with lots of warmth from different lighter shades of cream and linen and just a touch of blue from blue + white patterned china. It's a classy, adult feel without being too fussy. If you like Magnolia Homes style (as you should), then this one is dedicated to you! Here are my inspiration pictures.

I love the base of this Linden table and the Belgian gray finish on it. It's a beautiful shade of natural wood and the legs have a great, classic style. To style it, I'm envisioning these rustic lanterns with candles inside, an olive + eucalyptus wreath laid in the center of the table with a large, ivory pillar candle in the middle - BONUS: you can use the wreath later for your Christmas decor! I also love antler votive holders and, of course, white pumpkins at every place setting. The console / buffet is really beautiful too and has the perfect finish and style that I think compliments the table without "matching".

To set the table... can we talk about this amazing tureen? The white cornucopia style would be pretty as a centerpiece itself, but it's a great way to keep those mashed potatoes warm and served up all pretty at your Thanksgiving table! For each place setting, the base of the distressed wood chargers is a unique way to bring interest juxtaposed against sophisticated blue and white patterned plates, natural linen napkins and decorative indigo goblets. This is secretly my dream table. Here are the links to each item.
