It’s time to start thinking about decorating your Thanksgiving table. Who’s excited!! This is my very favorite time of year and I look forward to hosting a ton of people at my home for our annual Merry Thanks celebration! It’s our Thanksgiving/Friends giving all in one feast that we’ve hosted at our home for the last 18 years.
Merry Thanks is my favorite night of the year, we invite friends and family to spend time together and enjoy a yummy dinner with all my fave foods. My mom, Grand and I start cooking days in advance to get everything ready. And I always try to set a really casual, but beautiful table for our guests to enjoy as they eat!
Our table vibe this year is natural and chic. I’m a lover of stones and crystals so we lined our table with a collection of crystal specimens I’ve collected over the years. They’re all varying heights and add such a pretty and unexpected focal point to the table scape. We also added in gorgeous Caramel colored tapper candles that set the fall vibe perfectly and add a bit of color to the overall look.
We used my set of Selenite candle votives mixed in with the taller tapers for a soft glow. Silver Dollar Eucalyptus branches are strewn in between the candles and crystals for a casual addition.
Our place settings are easy going and compliment the overall natural chic look. We even added in my set of vintage glasses with golden fall leaves that I’ve been dying to use. And they look AMAZING!
We mixed in a vintage set of gold flatware I’ve had for years with new gray stoneware plates. Casual taupe linen napkins accented with quartz pieces and a sprig of eucalyptus finish off the look perfectly.
Overall we were going for something that was pretty and chic, while also being easy to achieve and had a cool, casual vibe. I think we achieved it perfectly!
If you want to recreate this look and don’t have access to the Crystal specimens and Selenite Votives, just swap them out for Pillar candles and small tea lights. We used one bunch of Silver Dollar Eucalyptus to place down the center of the table. You can buy it at most floral supply stores. Or just go outside and cut a few stems off of an evergreen tree to get the same casual look.
Have fun setting your Thanksgiving table. Don’t worry about making it too perfect or fancy. In the end it’s really all about laughing, making memories and sharing this special time of Thanksgiving with the people you love most!
