In this post I’m sharing a gorgeous gold Thanksgiving table. Easy and elegant, this tablescape features both faux and real pears, gold candleholders and lots of greens.
I’ve done quite a few Thanksgiving tables over the years, not only from blogging, but also because I usually host and I love doing holiday tables!
Tablescapes are such a fun, creative outlet for me and I love that they also elevate the celebration. There is just something about sitting down to a dinner at a pretty table that makes everything a little more special!
This year, I wanted to change it up a bit. Instead of turkey plates, I’m using the cutest “Give Thanks” plates that I found at Home Goods! As soon as I saw them, I knew they would form the basis of my Thanksgiving table. I literally couldn’t scoop them up fast enough!
Because they are white and gold, I let that set the tone for this gold Thanksgiving table….
My salad plates are from Home Goods, but I found some very similar ones that are adorable!
I wanted to focus on whites and golds only, with the pears creating the only real color on the table. To do that, I used a simple white tablecloth and white napkins and just a flax colored runner down the center.
I created the centerpiece by combining some green leaves from my yard, fresh pears from the market, and faux pears from Pottery Barn.
I think the key to making faux fruit or flowers look more realistic is combining some real with the faux! The mix creates a more believable look than using just faux alone. And it’s great when you can’t find what you need!
For instance, I wanted both gold and green pears, but could only find green at the market. I mixed in the faux gold ones I already owned with the real ones, and I think it worked pretty well!
The brass candleholders are a mix of vintage and Pottery Barn.
I’ve only recently started using gold flatware. I’m in love with the look for fall and winter and the warmth it brings to the table.
