S+S Thanksgiving Tablescape

Happy two days before Thanksgiving lovelies! For those of you who are so bravely hosting Thanksgiving and are still pondering how to set your table, this post goes out to you. Have no fear. S+S is here. This year, we again found items around the house to set our table and you absolutely can do the same. 

We had a remnant of multi-colored tweed fabric that has been sitting around the house at the ready to be used in our tablescape. Since it is a predominately brown tweed, we wanted to bring out some of the unexpected colors out of the color palette, like teal. We thought maybe another fun color to highlight out of this pattern would have been a bright turquoise. You can achieve this by using different colored napkins. To give our plates an even more dramatic effect, different shades of pheasant feathers were used. We think this gives the table an outdoorsy and seasonly appropriate feel. 

We cannot ever get enough of our gold gilded chargers. We honestly try to stray from them and try something new. We come running back every time. 


As for the centerpiece, we kept it simple. A wooden stump charger with mercury glass and birch candles. Again, a mix of glam and nature. 
To highlight the plates, we thoughtfully placed metallic pumpkins at each place setting. Alternating gold and silver with each place setting gives each set a unique feel. Feel free to tie a pretty name tag off of the pumpkin to give it even more of a personal feel. 
We hope we have given you some ideas for your Thanksgiving place setting. For those of you hosting a large family get together, just remember to breathe. Also, remember to send us your address and time of dinner so we can head on over. Happy eve, eve of Thanksgiving!
