Well, hello there! Long time, no blog. My world has been turned upside down, but I hope to pop in here a bit more just like the old days. I have so much to tell you, but for now, let’s just start with our Thanksgiving table. This was a “use what you have on hand at the moment” kind of table.
Starting with a cream table cloth that we’ve had since we got married, layered with gold wrapping paper and a navy chevron wrapping paper on top of it. I absolutely love using wrapping paper for table settings. It’s cheap and opens a world of endless options and if it gets spilt on, no worries.
For our centerpiece, I used fruit and nuts that were already in the house.
Didn’t bother with the china and used my everyday white. I love white dishes. They work for everything and make food look fabulous! I used tags and my handy dandy washi tape for place setting tags. Just tied them around the flatware with jute and used a gold Sharpie to write “thankful for you” to each person.
My love for trays continues. They truly upgrade the look of a few bottles of wine on a counter to a little bar area.
And here’s a full view to give you a peek at the almost finished family room. You can see the gallery wall and the shelves are back in place.
Well, that’s it for now. We had a busy Thanksgiving weekend, including a mad scientist birthday for my son. Hope to share some details with you sometime soon! And there may just be a series called Never Before Seen Rooms. Stay tuned…
