I can’t believe Thanksgiving is around the corner! Not only is it time to start planning your Thanksgiving menu (get my low-stress Thanksgiving menu and shopping list here), but it’s also time to start planning your Thanksgiving table décor. Today’s post is to inspire your Thanksgiving tablescape with an easy, chic silver and gold theme.
Central to the look of my Thanksgiving table this year are Wildly Wald placemats. They have several different colors and styles of sustainable, functional (they wipe clean!) placemats cut into gorgeous patterns with a lux aesthetic. I am going to be experimenting with different placemats from Wildly Wald for all of my holiday entertaining this year, so stay tuned for more on Fab Everyday. In the meantime, check out the Wildly Wald site to see all the placemat options!
Read below for details and purchase links for all the components, including details on the DIY floral pumpkin centerpiece.
For my Thanksgiving table, I decided to layer two different types of placemats: Crest in gold and Splat Mat in silver faux croc. Either would have been big enough and pretty enough on their own, but I liked the mix of shape and colors, and the extra width I got by layering them.
The place setting included a gold-tone charger plate (from Macy’s), gold flatware (from Target), a dark red napkin (from At Home and tied with silver-toned fabric ribbon), and a wine glass (from Crate and Barrel).
The centerpiece includes a few decorative pumpkins from Jo-Ann’s Pumpkin Boutique, plus a larger floral pumpkin centerpiece. The floral centerpiece has high impact for little effort. I simply cut a hole in the top of a white craft pumpkin and inserted a pillar vase. I filled the vase with a mixture of fresh florals in deep, textural reds and leafy, multi-tonal greens. It was as easy as that, and the vase set-up will last me until next year.
The different textures of the flowers, the different textures of the pumpkins, and the mix-and-match of the layered placemats coordinate without an overly matchy feel.
I hope this has helped inspire your own simple, but fabulous, holiday table. If so, be sure to pin and share!
