I’m so excited to be part of another Styled & Set Entertaining tour! Thank you Lory from Designthusiasm for all of your hard work! Today we are sharing loads of Thanksgiving inspiration! If you’re following the tour then you probably just came from Citrine Living – welcome!
Are you hosting Thanksgiving or other big Fall family gathering this year? Even the most seasoned entertainer needs inspiration, and often we want it to just be easy – because there’s so much other stuff to do too! I hear ya! So, today, I am sharing How to make an easy and pretty Thanksgiving centerpiece! This seriously only takes minutes and I know you’re gonna love it.
Doesn’t it all look so lush and inviting?! For me, one of the keys to easy entertaining is having good core or foundational elements that you can rely on. That’s precisely what this dough bowl is for me. It’s a piece that looks good and is versatile. Do you remember the simple succulent centerpiece I showed you how to make here? Here’s how I pulled this one together:
Next, tuck in your branches. If this is just for the evening and it’s not too hot, then you should be fine to tuck them right into the sand. If you want them to last longer you can either use floral water picks or a ziplock baggie with some water and a rubber band attached to each stem end to help keep the water in.
I love the slightly rustic simplicity of this table – and of course the blue & white charm!! The fabric and the plates are from Walmart. The fabric is cut yardage that I folded to make a runner. I’m thinking of sewing on some trim and turning it into a sweet little throw. It’s a really soft flannel. I am so grateful to have a fabric section in my local walmart. And those bistro plates are my favorites right now! They are so inexpensive – I think they were around $20 for a set of 4!
I custom designed the papers – the menu’s and placecards. Do you like them? They can be yours! They are for sale in my new online shop – along with a few other goodies! I’m building up the inventory with more ways for you to celebrate everyday life!
I hand cut out the apple on this one to make it more dimensional and interesting 🙂 The chicken place card holder is from Michaels Craft Store – they are on clearance right now in the Fall section – run don’t walk to get yours!
