In all my 32 years, I have never made a tablescape or centerpiece of any kind, shocker, I know! This past weekend, the kids and I wanted to have a fancy pizza dinner so we decided to make a tablescape for fall/Thanksgiving and now I can’t wait to re-create it later this month.

You may recognize some of these items from around my home because I shopped my home to create this tablescape, but I did pick up these new linen napkins. I love shopping my own home because it’s budget friendly and I love purchasing items that are versatile with multiple uses. I was on the hunt for new napkin rings to go with the linen napkins, but decided to tie them in a knot and wow, so easy and budget friendly (and they look good too).
To create the ‘base’ of my table, I first added these dinner and salad plates. They are from the Mercer line at Crate & Barrel that we purchased this past summer. I love the organic look and feel they provide. I want to get a linen table runner or placemats to go under the plates, but I do love the simple, minimal look. Maybe I’ll add something for our winter/Christmas table. This past summer, we also purchased this Lucky Brand flatware set. Such a great deal as they are on sale right now and I love the matte/brushed nickel look. They also come in copper 😉
After adding the plates, I then added vases with dried stems that were originally in our office and in our kitchen. The stems added some much needed height and warmth. I love decorating with dried florals, particularly these bunny tails and dried eucalyptus. The neutral colors are perfect for fall/Thanksgiving and are a very inexpensive way to update a space, table, room, whatever you please. I then added a few candles, a basket of fruit, a bowl of bread with a dishtowel and there you have it, the perfect Thanksgiving table. Only thing missing is a pumpkin pie and family to gather around.
As for our actual table, it’s the Mercer table from Article. I love the natural wood grain and the oak is so pretty. It pairs nicely with these black stained chairs.
So what would you prefer Thanksgiving dinner or fancy pizza party?
