Happy November! Today I’m sharing a warm and cozy Thanksgiving table using the rich colors of fall. And I’m joining some blogging friends who are also sharing their tables as well. This is my second Thanksgiving table this year and I wanted it to be quite different from my first! In fact, I love doing tablescapes and over the years have created quite a few! If you love setting tables, make sure you check out my free e-book with twelve of my favorites (one for each month of the year!)
If you missed my Rustic Gold Thanksgiving table, you can catch that post here. I used all gold and cream and did an elegant table with pears and greens. This time around, I wanted to use the rich colors of fall and create a warmer feel. I have some fig salad plates that I’ve had for a few years, and I’ve always loved the colors so I decided to let those lead the way.
I lined eucalyptus along with figs and artichokes down the center of the table for a warm yet natural runner that uses the bounty of nature that fall has to offer.
The candles are mercury glass votives.
The flowers are a mix of white hydrangeas, turning hydrangeas from my bushes, eucalyptus (always!) and a couple of seasonal deep-berry colored flowers from Trader Joe’s.
I love the fresh figs on the table. Not only are they pretty, we got to eat them afterward! But I also found fabulous faux ones at Pottery Barn that look so real!! They would work well if you’re unable to find real ones.
The color of these Pottery Barn votives is so unusual. Kind of a cross between gold and copper ~ and so pretty!
I love that this Thanksgiving table is a little less typical. I didn’t use pumpkins, or turkey plates, or traditional fall colors. But I do think the deep plums, along with the greens and gold convey a warm and cozy feeling that’s perfect for the holiday!
