When I think about Thanksgiving, I don’t typically think about place settings and tablescapes. I think about turkey and dressing, family, football and red solo cups. But for all of you out there scouring Pinterest looking for inspiring Thanksgiving table decorations, this post is for you. Today I’m teaming up with TWENTY-FIVE fabulous bloggers to bring you some crazy gorgeous fall tablescapes that are going to blow you away.
My table is filled with all things rustic and fall! Pumpkins, wheat, grapevine wreaths, reclaimed wood, galvanized leaves… you name it, I’ve got it. The centerpiece is layered like this: Reclaimed wood on bottom, grapevine wreath in center, pumpkin in the middle, then a few extras scattered around the sides.
Since I can’t stand to sit down to a table and not be able to see over the centerpiece to talk to folks, I put everything onto one big piece of reclaimed wood so that it could easily be picked up and cleared off the table when dinner starts.
Now, here is something you need to know about me. I have never in my life used a place card for a place setting. Not even at my own wedding! My family would look at me like I had three heads if I made them sit down in an assigned seat. But, I recently got a new Silhouette Portrait machine, so I decided to break that baby out and give it a whirl with this just-for-fun blog post!
And I bet you’ll never guess what these little menu/placecards are made out of…
Envelopes! Yep, pre-printed envelopes. I had some pretty fall leaf envelopes in my desk, so I stole four of them, cut out some round blue cardstock circles and premade pumpkin labels on the Silhouette and attached it all together with some burlap fabric and tape. SUPER easy.
I’m digging the way the gold foil cutouts looks on the blue cardstock. My hands are itching to play with that Silhouette some more now! I was loving how simple it was to buy all the premade templates and use my own fonts from my computer. This one is called Pumpkin Flourish by Kolette Hall. All of her designs are stunning, y’all! Yep, I am totally in love with how easy it was to cut out this beautiful shape on the Silhouette machine. No more cartridges that cost a fortune. Woot!
