thankful tablescape

 











Today I wanted to share my thanksgiving tablescape with you.  I left the reclaimed wood plank in the center as my runner, just as I did with my Fall table.  Then I added the burlap ribbon over the board, and then added another layer with the lighter jute ribbon.  With my Fall table, I added a wider burlap runner under the plank, but I like this better because it doesn't feel so crowded.

The center basket from Hobby Lobby is holding the pine cones that Lyla pick up on one of our walks.  I added a little greenery from our landscape to the basket and also used some for my name cards.

Preston is almost 7 and Lyla is 4.5, so I made the "i am thankful" for page for them to think about and right down what they are thankful for.  And it will keep them sitting still a little longer while we finish our dinner.  {On a side note:  Preston was pouting about a gift he was given last week because he was expecting something else, and Grant and I have been talking with both kids a lot about being appreciative and thankful for all that they have.  So, hopefully this will help reinforce our point with them}

And I'm a big fan of white plates, and I love them even more over the dark rustic table my husband built.  Lastly, I added the glass candle holders that I picked up at Target to finish it off!  Now I can't wait to sit down and enjoy!!


And I'm so honored that this tablescape was featured on Houzz

 


 
Hope your day is wonderful!

  35. Becky, how do you like the Target dishes? I almost bought them a few months ago but got nervous about the longevity and wear. Have you had them long? How are they holding up? Thanks!
