holiday table inspiration


(via james carriere and unknown)
I am so excited and a bit nervous to be hosting Thanksgiving this year and have been searching for simple yet festive tabletop inspiration. I am a bit torn between a traditional fall color palette with a soft touch...

A more elegant and classic look...

(via jennifer altman)
Or perhaps luxurious with organic metallic accents...

(via unknown)
And then there are cool color infused options...

(via james carriere and real simple)
And lastly a simple and casual look with a nod to coming Christmas season.

Yes, quite indecisive! What stlyle are you leaning towards this year!?

Lovely table settings, thank you for sharing! I like the luxurious-organic-metallic one myself. It would look great with a burlap runner, maybe with some antique linen as well.

Happy Thanksgiving!

You're going to be a great host! You really can't go wrong with any of these images as inspiration; I really love the last two images as they are seasonless but special and I always love the look of plants as table decor. Happy Thanksgiving!

Metallic all the way. The perfect combination of wintry and sparkly to get your guests in the holiday spirit.

I love the metallic look. It seems to be very in right now and you can add hints, or go all out. Love these photos. I know whatever you choose will be fabulous!

I just discovered your blog and love it so much! And I believe the unknown image (of the metallic table) is by Joy Thigpen.

These are lovely - I particularly love the metallic and pop of colour examples you've included here.

I do hope you'll be posting photos of your final spread! Best of luck and Happy (american) Thanksgiving, Blair. You'll do a fantastic job!
