This time of year sure does fly by quickly doesn’t it? We’ve already whipped past Halloween and now it’s time to gear up for Thanksgiving. It’s overwhelming and so exciting! I really enjoy taking dedicated time out to focus on thanks and giving.
Do you enjoy this time of year? I know a lot of people love Thanksgiving because they love the foods offered. Me? not so much. As a vegan, I find this holiday to be one of the more difficult ones. I never want my friends and family to go out of their way for me. But the decorating. Oh boy does the decorating get me excited! This is my first attempt at a full Thanksgiving tablescape.
A huge “Thank You!” goes out to Lindsay of The White Buffalo Styling Co. for inviting me to partake in this Thanksgiving tablescape themed Blogger Stylin’ Home Tours. You can always start on her blog to work your way through all the tours.
And since this is a round robin style tour, you’ve most likely stopped here from my incredibly talented friend Cassie Bustamante. I know, I know. She’s a tablescape genius. You really ought to also make sure you’ve checked out her Kid’s Thanksgiving Tablescape and all the work she’s done on her daughter’s bohemian bedroom.
So I guess we’ll jump into some pictures with occasional commentary then? Have a seat!
I like to keep it simple. Dishes from the dollar store, inexpensive punches of color from the drinks, thrifted dishes and napkins and pops of warmth from the butternut squash, wooden bowl and salad forks and little decorative accents spread about. The predominantly blue table is given life with pops of yellow and green.
To help give the table a carefree, relaxed vibe, I chose to mix different sets of silverware, plates and napkins. They’ve all got a similar vibe which helps them work together in this setting. Having some matching elements like the placemats grounds all the craziness.
The napkin rings, the bowls, and candle holder are thrift store finds. You’ll never go wrong bringing in second hand elements to a space. Actually, all of the chairs and the table were thrifted too now that I’m thinking about it

So, where will you be sitting? Pick any seat! It’s yours, friend.
Recreate My Tablescape With These Items:
If you’re not terribly elaborate with your tablescape decorating, I hope you’ll have found this to be relatable and/or inspiring. The whole set up didn’t cost all that much! And everything can be used again for other occasions and decorating. That’s my favorite way to decorate.
And now for the fun part, continue the round robin and get inspiration from some of the finest designers I’ve ever come across (yeah, I know- it’s crazy I’m amongst this talent, ha!). The next stop goes live tomorrow at 6 am EST and you’ll go to Michael of Inspired By Charm. Enjoy!
If you haven’t seen the tablescape Lindsay from The White Buffalo Styling Co. put together, then you’re not done! Go there now.
