fall tablescapes

do you dream of having a beautifully set
 table for thanksgiving?
yeah, me too.
but our table usually looks only slightly better 
than it does on "normal" days.
if i could pull it off,
i would love my table to look like one of these...

love the textures on this tablescape.
and did you see that beautiful, dusky blue on the walls?
i love the simple and 
traditional look of this one.
this mix of blue + brown + the mustard napkin are 
just beautiful.
love this one.
so much texture, and i love the personalization
on the tablecloth...
and the glasses...
and the napkins.
this would be an easy diy project!
mmmm...natures bounty!
don't you just want to sit here and EAT?
i really like the different shades of green used here.
and these bird plates are really great!
if you wanted the focal point of the table to be the chandelier,
here is one great idea.
and this one is really pretty too!
and just a little over the top.
but i guess that's what makes it fun.

i love the ieda of using roses on the chandelier...
but that would be an expensive and short-lived display.

i loved this idea of bringing in squash for some color.
this would be a great fall replacement for the typical
lemons and/or limes that we usually see in the kitchen.
another cute, simple and affordable solution from martha.
do you have a favorite tablescape or idea from this post?
are you going to do anything to make your thanksgiving table 
special this year?


  1. Great post! So many great ideas for very little cash!

  2. After seeing your themed birthday party tables, I have a hard time believing that you couldn't pull off a dazzling Thanksgiving table! Will you be hosting Thanksgiving this year? Cheers!

  3. Any of these tables would suit me but my favorite is the green accent bird plates. Enjoy your blog!
