You will have to forgive me for skipping right over Halloween and getting to the good stuff, which is Thanksgiving and Christmas!! Thanksgiving is less than a month away and I can't wait!! I'm looking forward to spending time with my family. And just thinking of the food is making my mouth water at this very minute. We typically don't have a very formal table setting for our holiday feasts, but the thought of having one crossed my mind as I styled this particular table setting for this fun interview I recently did for Occasions! The interview was all about my entertaining style and it was SO FUN to do! I recently purchased this gold flatware, which inspired me to create a table setting for the photos for the interview. So I shopped in my kitchen cabinets for inspiration and this is what I came up with...
The thought of styling a holiday table often brings about the urge to shop for table decor. But I learned that starting with what you already have is the way to go! You might be surprised at what you come up with! The only thing new here is the flatware. I started with that woven charger. It adds texture and makes everything on top of it pop. The plate is this everyday white plate (on sale!) that I LOVE! They are quality, affordable, and go with everything. The pear is actually a real pear that I had leftover from this sangria. I spray painted it gold with a quality spray paint and I love how it turned out! The silk magnolia flowers are currently on my coffee table. I grabbed them and draped them across the middle of the table. I personally like to use stemless wine glasses when I entertain instead of glasses with a stem. They keep things simple and casual - two things that make guests feel more comfortable. I added a little candle to the side for some ambiance and voila!! It's simple with a little elegance. Love it.
