White and Gold Thanksgiving Table Setting

White and Gold Thanksgiving Table Setting


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).

The gold candleholder in the background is from ZGallerie and it holds an Erin Condren candle.

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?

Feeling Thankful,

      Thank you, Patty! The white and gold pumpkins are from Kirkland’s. They were on clearance years ago and I purchased quite a few.
