FOR WHAT IS NEXT!
Even though October is a month full of family Birthdays, I am still very excited it is November. It is officially fall, and it is also time to make plans for the Holiday season starting with one of my favorites…..
With Thanksgiving in mind I thought I would share what I have done for our family table in the past.
Hopefully it will inspire you and me at the same time!
So for the next few days I will be showing you a table from the past. I will tell you what my inspiration was and what I started with first!
Shall we start in 2009? This is my first Thanksgiving Table that I shared on my blog. I remember I was so nervous taking the pictures……..
This is the year I decided to do a natural loose interpretation of a cornucopia.
It all started with the linen table cloth that I had a monogrammed, "P" placed on the corner.
Next came the color scheme I chose soft linens, white and green.
After the color was chosen I brainstormed ideas for the elements I would use. Natural produce in creams and greens was going to be perfect for the loose interpretation of a cornucopia, and worked perfectly with the color choices.
When looking at the images keep in mind this arrangement is almost 6 ft. long. It is hard to capture that in an image, at least it is hard for me. So please feel free to use your imagination!
The place settings were set with vintage Bakelite butter knives, white linen napkins, and black and white transferware plates that depict an autumnal setting of wheat gathering.
I used some natural wheat in the design because the plates have wheat going around the rim. It is hard to tell in the image, but the hurricane is etched with a wheat design as well.
The goblets were a mix of clear crystal and fruit embossed green glass.
There was an addition of two silver pheasants and some mercury glass to make the arrangement glimmer.
That was our table for 2009!
Come back and I will show what I did in 2010!
Martha Stewart inspired my next table.
