Come take a tour of my natural, moody fall tablescape and get inspiration for setting your table this Thanksgiving!
My step-mom and I hosted a Friendsgiving last weekend with some of our favorite ladies and it’s got to be one of my favorite tablescapes I’ve ever put together…
I thought it would be fun to give you a tour since it’s very much a style you could put together for your Thanksgiving table!
And with gatherings being so limited in size this year, it’s the perfect year to try fancying up your table because you don’t have to worry about setting as many places at the table. 😉
Natural Fall Tablescape with a Boho Vibe
Welcome to our table!
I fell in love with the look of a wide, velvet runner, and so ordered this blush runner specifically for this table. It’s amazing quality and I’ll definitely be ordering some more of these for future tablescapes!
The centerpiece was a bouquet of artificial flowers assembled inside a real pumpkin.
I simply carved a small square out of the top of the pumpkin (the size of my floral foam) and placed plastic wrap under the foam, then duck-taped the foam and plastic around the edge to keep it preserved.
My favorite part is the pink pampas grass stems. They added just the right soft touch and height to the table.
All the other stems were from Michael’s and I got them at 60% off because they were discounting their fall stems already!
I’m somewhat obsessed with how the place settings ended up… They were so fun to piece together!
I got the dried stems from our church’s “grass cutting” a few weeks ago and simply wrapped them with a merlot-colored velvet ribbon.
The name tags were stamped and burned around the edges by yours truly.
I was really excited to add these napkins to my collection – the dusty olive color and the fringe are perfection! Plus they are part of their “always affordable” line so they only cost a few dollars each. Steal. 😉
I found the amber wine glasses at Goodwill – there were only 7 of them, with 3 large and 4 small, but totally worth it to add the depth and style to the table! I found some similar ones here.
One thing I’ve found when it comes to setting fancy tablescapes is that you can put different sized or slightly different pieces (like these glasses) on a tablescape and most likely no one will notice because they usually only focus on their place setting!
The main table décor consisted of LOTS of candles and a few artificial floral items.
I used orange, pink and mauve candlesticks and cream votives/pillars and added dimension by using a variety of candle holders – wood coasters underneath the pillars, amber glass votive holders and both gold and white candlestick holders.
The white candlestick holders were my DIY from last week!
I loved the big purple dahlia on the backside of the centerpiece. It’s the same ones I used on my mantel this fall.
I love creating a table people that makes people feel special and creates a desire for lingering and long conversations.
We lit the candles just before everyone arrived and they burned for over 4 hours while we ate, drank and encouraged one another. It was such a special night!
