Thanksgiving Tablescape with our New Downloads


 

First, let me apologize for this VERY picture heavy post. I probably should have split this into two posts.  However, I am excited to show you our dining room set up for Thanksgiving. I mentioned a while back that although autumn was my favorite season, I wasn't a fan of decorating for it most of the time. I have to admit though, I had quite a bit of fun doing this and might retract that statement. As usual, I tried to use mostly natural elements. I used wheat stalks that I bought and tied together about six years ago as the centerpiece on the table and then mixed in some pumpkins and gourds. I poked the turkey feathers that I use every fall and Christmas in and around the pumpkins for some added texture and layers. Then I scooped out the inside of one of the pumpkins and placed a mason jar inside it and then just added fresh greenery, berries and feathers. I painted the pumpkin with some Valley Forge Tan that I had in the garage. I used my Emma place settings as well as silver chargers which were wedding gifts six years ago and are from Pottery Barn. The brown toile napkins are also from Pottery Barn that I got right after we got married. I basically just used all items I already had and then added in the pumpkins, gourds and greenery.


 

I placed one of our Pilgrim Boy pillow covers in each of the chairs at the end of the table.


Over here I used berries, feathers, pears, acorns and squash.


At each setting I placed a menu and place card. This one is from our Dark Chocolate and Caramel Pilgrim Set. After I had printed and cut my menus and food labels I used double stick tape to adhere them to chocolate colored cardstock and then layered them on top for an added touch.
(My printer was low on ink so ignore all of the faint little lines running through the pilgrims faces and on some of the leaves.)


We also have a Maple Leaf Set:
 


Here are the food labels:

 




Each download set comes with a template for making these Maple Leaf cutouts. I made these last year and used them again this year. They are a fun idea, especially for kids. Each person writes something they are thankful for and adds them to the tree. If you don't want to have to cut them out yourself we also are offering them as decorative cutouts in our shop in sets of six which will be available next week. We are just waiting on a new blade and then will be offering them as well as some boy and girl pilgrim cutouts.


Here's the full dessert buffet:









I hope you all are having a lovely week! I've got two sick little munchkins now so it's been a long one here even though it's only Tuesday. =)

  11. Lovely, absolutely lovely! I want to come to your house for Thanksgiving! We do a Thankful tree too, all month long in November we add to it. I keep all the leaves we have made and put them up every year. The "tree" needs some more branches, we have filled it up!

  14. I realize everyone has a different creative niche, but your ability to style rooms blows me away!

    Also, if that apple pie is homemade, how in the world did you get it out of the pan? It looks so cool like that!

    1. Thank you, Loretta! Although I have made an apple pie before: http://dearlillieblog.blogspot.com/2010/10/apple-pie-on-porch.html this one is from Fresh Market and it took a little finagling but I just kind of wiggled it and eventually got it out of the tin plate thing it was in.

  21. This room is so well done, so festive, and so inviting. One could get lost in looking at all of your pretty decorations. Food has to definitely taste better here! I live the color of trees and leaves, so this room is so welcoming. Since I ordered the little boy and girl chocolate pilgrim invitations I am going to order the leave one. Can you make the leave a different color? Maybe a orangish or a deep maroon?

    1. Thank you, Karen! We won't be making the leaves in any other colors this year but I will keep that in mind for next year. Depending on what programs you have on your computer, though, you may be able to switch it!
