Are you preparing to host Thanksgiving at your home? Prepare a gorgeous table and amp up your hostess style with these expert tips for creating the perfect tablescape for your holiday gathering.
Start with cream-color table linens and add a rich plum color table runner for a royally inspired Thanksgiving table to brighten your home. Place a white plate over a gold charger for a shimmering yet clean look.Tip: Use scrapbooking paper for a chic and creative table runner.
Create a unique centerpiece for your home’s dining room table with exotic-looking dried flowers, bunches of grapes and shimmering plum and gold accents.
Drape bunches of oversize faux grapes over the edges of your dining room centerpiece vases. If the grapes cause the vase to tip over, add rocks or vase filler inside to weigh it down and keep it steady. Embellish your centerpiece vases with bands of ribbon. Try layering patterned ribbon over a wider band of solid ribbon for a contemporary look.
Add fun metallic elements to your home’s Thanksgiving table with gold vases and votive holders. If you can’t find metallic vases, try wrapping everyday vases in glittery gold gift wrap or scrapbooking paper.
For a pulled-together look, embellish wine or cocktail glass stems with the same patterned ribbon used in your dining room centerpiece.
Place the same style of dried flowers and faux-grape arrangements throughout your home for coordinating décor that stretches from room to room.
