Holiday Tablescape

Today I am partnering with Balsam Hill on their Let’s Give Thanks campaign and sharing Holiday Tablescape decor ideas to help you plan for Thanksgiving.

A Holiday Tablescape - Tips for creating a beautiful table

For as long as I can remember, my mom has always set a beautiful table for special events – including Thanksgiving. Now that I am older and aware of the time and effort she put (and continues to put) into creating a pretty and memorable experience, I want to do the same for my family!  I am so grateful that she believed we were worth the effort, and I want to continue the tradition of a beautifully set table with my children. Today I’m sharing our holiday tablescape and tips for creating a beautiful table.

There are oversized hanging chalkboard nameplates on the back of the chairs – one for each member of the family.

Three festive 26″ Orchard Harvest wreaths were added to the walls in our dining room.

The wreaths firs are filled with rich berries, gilt leaves, and copper fruits.  They are so festive and beautifully and effortlessly transfer from Thanksgiving into Christmas.

The rich colors in the wreath continue to the table.

The Charlestown Decorated Foliage Garland  is on the table, and it coordinates beautifully with the Orchard Harvest wreaths.

Its lifelike pine needles adorned with leaves, fruits, pinecones, rustic bronze bells, and pale gold shimmer are stunning – especially by candlelight.

Several sets of Balsam Hill’s Miracle Flame Taper Candles add drama to the table.

These candles give the natural beauty of candlelight with the touch of a button.

The candles are set to run for 10 hours everyday and add elegance to the space (with no effort on my part).

When setting a table, layers helps add elegance and makes the tablescape more special.  In this thanksgiving tablescape, gold chargers are the first layer under the dinner plate and finished with pretty bowls with a the pear as the finishing touch.  The napkins are knotted with a small piece of fir tucked in the fold.

I added some smaller pears to the buffet behind the dining room table.

Although I was not gifted with the ability to craft delicious meals, I do love to create a pretty dining experience through the decor.

By creating a pretty dining experience, I’m expressing my gratitude to my family.

And maybe distracting them from the not-so-amazing meal?

My hope is that my guests will be excited to dine in the festive space…

I love adding fresh fruit to the tablescape.

Fresh fruit is such an inexpensive way to liven up the tablescape – while gifting your guests with a sweet treat.
