Garland Table Setting

Sunday, December 7, 2014
We kicked off the holiday season this year with a house full for Thanksgiving and it was simply awesome!  We had family from near and far with old friends and new ones all gathered around our table. We spent the day as a family lounging around, first watching the parade, cooking and finally welcoming in our guests as they arrived. What a better way to celebrate the spirit of Thanksgiving and help us kick off the holiday season. It was a pretty perfect day!
Anytime I know we are going to have a house full of guests, the wheels in my head start turning and all I could think was what kind of table setting we would have for our guests.
I knew I was going to have a giant table to set and I wanted to keep everything simple yet festive!
So I went with a 13 foot garland made from fresh eucalyptus, sage and evergreen.
Oh it spelled so good!!

Our place setting was a mix of old and new. White linen napkins, antique plates, new white porcelain plates and of course our little feather bunches. I also added a little rolled up piece of craft paper for our guests to write what they were all thankful for this year. This is a little tradition we do in our home where we all write down what we are thankful for, drop it in a pitcher and then during dessert we pass the pitcher around the table and each person takes one out and reads it. Its so fun!!
I really was so happy with how the painted flatware turned out! I also
have to update you and let you know that purely by mistake it all went through the dishwasher! OOPS! But guess what...it totally survived! No chipping or scratching! So if you are considering this as your next project, I recommend it as a good one!
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with friends and family and now we are on to Christmas to do it all over again! Whew this is a busy time of year....it must be, even this little post is a tad late:(
Here is to an amazing holiday season and I can't wait to share a few updates to our home in the days to come....
oh and you're getting a sneak peek right now!!!

  1. This is stunning! Such a beautiful table! I have chairs in both of the styles you have, but I wouldn't have thought to put them together, but they look great!
