Our Thanksgiving Table

Napkins || Napkin Holders ||Utensils || Chargers || Glasses (old, similar here) |Plates || Chairs 

I cannot believe we are so close to celebrating another Thanksgiving day with our family.  This year is the first time we are officially hosting at our house, so I figured I should probably get my act together and start building a collection festive holiday table decor.  I never really thought about all the things you need when entertaining for a holiday and in all the years we have been celebrating Christmas or Easter at my parents house my mom just seemed to have everything she needed, so I guess over time you just build up a stash of cute holiday items, right?

  When I was looking around online there is so many cute  patterns for both Thanksgiving and Christmas, but I thought I should probably look at the bigger picture and pick something that could potentially be used for more than one holiday. I found this cute bowl and plate set at Pier 1 and from there everything else came together.  My thought is, these plates and bowls can be used for numerous occasions along withe the flatware and chargers and then I can switch out things like napkinsnapkin holders, table runners, or glasses depending on the holiday we are celebrating.

Since right now I am also off my feet for another few weeks I also needed to create a tablescape that was simple but festive at the same time.  Adding these cute pumpkins and simple greens really made the table come alive.  We will be adding a few more settings and connecting a larger table on Thanksgiving Day but all in all this is what the table will look like as we sit down and give thanks for another inspiring, beautiful and blessed year.

If anyone is looking for some last minute Thanksgiving items or searching for some holiday decor for Christmas head over to Pier1 they are currently running 25% off all items in store and online.  I will probably be making a few more purchases this upcoming week. Next on the list, food prep…but who am I kidding because my husband is going to be working his magic in the kitchen this Thanksgiving :).
