Happy Thanksgiving! 🙂 I hope your day is full of appreciation and blessings! We are spending this time enjoying family and eating good food. Even though we aren’t having our own Thanksgiving dinner, I thought it was appropriate to set the table for the occasion. So, I bring you a simple holiday table.
I sewed the placemats with my dear friend (she dressed hers up a bit and added a gold hand-painted rose in the corner~they look fabulous!). We used the SOFIA fabric from IKEA which I’d been eyeing for some time. And the natural weave placemats were also from IKEA.
I kept it simple, and used my milky mercury glass vases as the centerpiece. I think they transition quite well from fall to winter. Shiny metallics fit both seasons well. And, I think the subtle milky hue will lend itself well to the Christmas spirit. (Oh, and did you notice my giant mirror in the background? Clearly, I have not decided what to do with it yet… Still pondering ;))
Setting a table is a big deal for me, since normally I like having the entire surface clear for maxium space. And… I would undoubtably spill all over placemats and stain them 🙁 Which I realize is actually their purpose, but they are just too pretty to spill on!
I hope we all get some time to reflect on what we’re thankful for today. Sometimes it’s the simplest things that I’m most thankful for: a kind and loving husband, a warm and supportive family, my sweet and funloving friends, and a place to call home.
As I will be out of town with family these next few days, I am taking a rain-check on the Friday Five this week. But, I will be back next week with the latest happenings! 🙂 Until then, have a wonderful Thanksgiving and an amazing weekend!
