Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! On thing we are so grateful for here at Design Public is YOU! We hope everyone has a great day with family and friends and stuffing themselves silly.
Well, nothing like waiting until the last minute, but on this Thanksgiving Eve, you may be so exhausted from cooking that you haven’t had a moment to put the table together. We’ve been scouring Pinterest to find some of our favorite Thanksgiving tablescape ideas to share with you.
These tall cylinders full of gourds work well with the long narrow table. They’ve also alternated vases with just a bloom or two in each with candlesticks. No time to forage at the grocery store for gourds? Go grab what’s left of the fall leaves off the ground and use those instead.
Clearly, you’re not going to have enough time to go saw down a tree, drill holes and fill them with tea lights. However, you can find a nice branch or two to run down the center of the table.
Yes, we love this rustic table and mix of glassware, but the best and easiest take-away is the thankful jar. All it requires is a jelly jar or mason jar, a tag and some twine or string. The way the kept the arrangements simple by sticking with sprigs of Eucalyptus. Just beware of how sticky your fingers will get when you handle them!
DwellStudio’s founder, Christiane Lemieux set up this table several years ago, but it’s still one of our all-time favorites. It shows the way you can play with those vases you may have tucked all over the house and no flowers are required!
So simple – Pillars, a few greens, cuties and pinecones. Easy-peasy. If you don’t have a mirror, use a simple runner or a few plain placemats butted together.
Even butcher paper can take on a chic placemat look when you pen a few words and lines down the side.
We hope everyone has a wonderful holiday and wish you safe travels!
Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Design Public. Here’s a yummy picture from flickr member Scandblue. If you click here, Scanblue has been nice enough to provide the recipe for this pecan pie on flickr.
