I'm Amanda and I’m passionate about creating a well loved and well lived in home for my family and I I'd love to help you do the same!
Thanksgiving is a special day in our house. Mark cooks up a big meal and we sit down together to celebrate gratitude! We tend to eat in our kitchen nook when it’s just the four of us. And even if we aren’t having a big gathering, I believe that it’s still important to set the table and make it special. This year I used what we already owned, thrift store finds and fresh greens to make a simple, but beautiful Thanksgiving tablescape.
I found gorgeous gold filigree glasses and brass candlestick holders for a few dollars at Goodwill! Then I dug out plates from our wedding china collection, woven placemats from the back of the linen cupboard and our everyday silverware!
The little pink glasses I bought earlier in the year from Simons for Valentine’s day. I love how they add a touch of blush to the table. Blush isn’t a traditional fall colour, but I believe your home should be a reflection of you and what makes you happy! That means no rules…get that creativity flowing! I tied clippings of eucalyptus and feathery grasses up with a gorgeous wooden bell and printed ribbon from my new favourite Canadian artisan shop Pi’lo to add some festive interest to each setting.
Arranged in this beautiful hobnail vase from Canadian shop Cedar & Sage Farm, fresh florals from Fabloomosity are a pretty touch. The antique silver salt and pepper shakers were another score from Goodwill! I don’t know who gives these treasures away, but it’s another thing to be thankful for this season!
I added a few snippets of greenery to the chandelier and I love the fresh simplicity! For Winter I plan to add evergreen cuttings to continue the festivity through to Christmas!
I hope this post inspires you to create your own simple Thanksgiving table setting! You can easily set a beautiful table and stay on budget by shopping your own home as well as scoring vintage finds.
