Simple Thanksgiving Table Setting – November Create and Share

Hi and welcome back!

I’m excited for another month of our create and share challenge.  Since November is all about Thanksgiving and gathering around the dinner table, our lovely host Stephanie of Casa Watkins thought it would be cool to share our Thanksgiving tables.

To be honest, I’ve never done a “tablescape” before and I’m not quite sure this qualifies.  I kept it pretty simple, as to not overwhelm myself, haha.  I minimally dressed my table for my dining room reveal. I have a few furnishings that get thrown in that big box when we are using the table, which is most of the time, since we eat here 2-3 times a day.  But, I kept it simple in order to be able to throw it back out in a jif.

So, for Thanksgiving I decided to add to what I had.  I bought some simple placements at Wal-Mart.  I loved the natural look of these, it fits right in my space.  I also have a thing for squares and rectangles, but for some reason the circle placemat appealed to me.  I was shocked by this, haha.

Next, I picked up the chargers for $1.99 a piece at Hobby Lobby!  That is the REGULAR price you guys.  Normally I don’t buy anything at HL that isn’t on sale, but these were perfect and cheap enough.

The white plates and napkins I had. I picked white ceramic plates years ago.  I felt like they were the most versatile and ceramic is my favorite material to eat off of.  I also thought black napkins would be easy and I wasn’t wrong – I’ve been able to work them with my pink plates, white and glass plates.  I picked up the napkin rings at Wal-Mart as well. So, I had my hurricanes, and I saw THIS post by Simply Vintage Girl and thought it was a great idea.

I picked a couple of branches out of my wood pile and grabbed some wood slices for $3 at JoAnn’s.  I probably should’ve just cut up my own branch, but I saw those so I grabbed them. I removed the candles and added some black rock to “hold” the branches.  Then I asked everybody what they were thankful for and added the slices to the branches.  We have everything from popcorn to grandparents and Lego’s to family.

And that was honestly it!  Easy peasy, and simple.  I’d like to pull the cards off on Thanksgiving and talk about them a little more, so hopefully that will happen, we’ll see.

And, to be fair, most of the time all that stuff is stashed in the box and our dining room looks like this,…

But we use it and I kinda like the way the branches look next to the “turning into winter” backyard backdrop.

Also, I saw these adorable plates while at WalMart and I couldn’t pass them up.  I’m not big on Christmas dishes, but these are the best ones I’ve ever seen!  I love them, and I can easily use this stuff to transform it to a Christmas dinner table.  Woo-hoo!  I seriously love these plates.
