Last week I shared an easy and quick Thanksgiving table setting. Today, I am sharing another option that will take a little longer, but the results are worth it. This white and gold Thanksgiving table setting is elegant yet earthy and thanksgiving-ey and beautiful-er. Okay so I can’t adorn the English language but I can set a mean table. Let’s dive in.
As I shared in the post about updating the dining room, our dining room table is more formal than I would like. I love it but I am always trying to dress it down to match the rest of the house. It’s just that when you have kids, a mirror-finish dining table can be a little scary. Ya know what I mean?
So I look for ways to marry fancy and less fancy. Hence the white wooden pumpkin on the gold pedestal. I found this beauty at Homegoods and I knew it would be a great centerpiece.
Our table is really long so I usually like long displays throughout the table, instead of an actual singular centerpiece. I “shopped” my house and Target (they essentially look the same since I shop there so often) and I pulled items together to create mini-vignettes throughout the table. The gold coral pedestal is actually an upside-down tea light holder from ZGallerie.
Here is another similar arrangemt.
I love the contrast of the casual rattan placemat, the fancy gold-rimmed plate, the casual print napkin and the fancy white and gold pumpkin (that were only a dollar, by the way).
One full look at the table. I think it came together great. I have to decide between this look and last weeks table setting. What do you think?
