Welcome! If you’re stopping over from Simple Stylings, I’m so glad you’re here! Today I’m thrilled to be alongside 30 crazy talented bloggers as we all share our idea of a Thanksgiving tablescape. Let me tell you, I’m blown away by all the incredible ideas everyone has shared! Make sure to hop on over to The White Buffalo Styling Co to catch the series from the beginning.
Thanksgiving is a little different for us this year. Jordon works on Thanksgiving day (life of a firefighter) so we are driving up to join the rest of the family on Friday. Since we’ll be eating turkey fixings from the previous day, my sister found a recipe for turkey brie sandwiches with cranberry mustard that I’m super excited to try. Don’t they look delicious! I’m all about starting new traditions and the leftover sandwich just might be one we stick with. Aside from that, my favorite items on the menu are a good cheesy potato casserole, pumpkin sage biscuits – so delicious, and pecan pie bars. I’m a sweet tooth myself so there’s always room for dessert!
After dinner, a nap and football is usually involved.
We aren’t hosting thanksgiving because our tiny ranch and 2 seat table just isn’t enough for our large gathering, so I opted for a bar-scape instead that is great for holiday parties and just more us.
You can’t go wrong with a good cheese plate and wine. My favorite cheese is brie served with a french loaf. Did you know they have boxed sangria? We tried the Beso Del Sol sangria and it’s tasty and convenient for parties!
For this look, I used a mirror as a base which helps “fill” space and then a rustic wood slice and bright flowers for a pop of color. Pinecones are my favorite fall accents because they have great texture and are super cheap if you don’t have them laying in your back yard. And you can never have too many candles.
The marble dome dish was a thrift find and perfect for sweet treats. For plates, spray paint thrift plates with chalkboard paint and write a name or a cute saying for a fun festive option if you don’t have pretty china.
Next up on the Blogger Stylin’ Home Tours is The Makerista. I’m always inspired by Gwen’s use of color so I’m sure her tablescape will be no different!
What are your Thanksgiving traditions? I’m a big game night proponent so let me know if you have any favorites to try!
