Thanksgiving Table {with a touch of turquoise}

Thanksgiving is this Thursday, so today I’m sharing a tablescape that I styled with autumn flair and a touch of turquoise.

For the centerpiece, I arranged pumpkins and pine cones in a ribbon-wrapped wooden crate.  The tablecloth is a satin throw.

I found the dinner plates for $2.00 each at the thrift store, which is my favorite place for sourcing vintage china.  These plates have a gold and silver leaf motif, and I placed them on top of two chargers — the bottom is silver and the one on top is amber glass.

{I purchased the giant, ceramic acorns at the craft store a few years ago.}

Layering equals elegance, and it also gives you the chance to introduce more color and texture.  So, not only did I layer the chargers, but I also doubled-up the napkins and ribbon.

Tall tapers in a dark hue also add elegance and a bit of drama…

and a small box of truffles adds a personal touch.

It can be easy to overlook the details for creating a festive Thanksgiving table, but it doesn’t have to be difficult to create one.  Look in your yard or take a walk in the neighborhood and collect pine cones, acorns and dried foliage.  Bring in that pumpkin from your front porch.  Add a few candles, and you’re in business.  Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. Love the color combinations. Came to your site to try and find something that would work with a turquoise wall. I have a Southwestern style home with Vegas in the ceiling which are natural wood with a hint of yellow. Thought an earth toned turquoise would be a good color for one dining room wall.
    Very inspiring.

  2. Kelly, when can I come over?!

    I love the color combination! I had no idea that turquoise and fall colors could work so well together. Really, really nice. The whole table setting.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

    Love, Mon
