thanksgiving recap

I hope you all had a wonderful long weekend! I survived and thoroughly enjoyed hosting my first Thanksgiving, cooking my second turkey and spending time with great friends. I also loved creating a festive, simple and casual table around a burlap runner I recently purchased..


I created the floral arrangement from ranunculus, orchids, bay and wheat.

And didn't have any cloth napkins so I cut up two vintage tea towels and then tied some wheat and a cattail with twine to top them off.

Although it was not a traditional tabletop I really loved the splashes of color and vintage flair. What did you top your table with this year?
