Still looking for inspiration for your Thanksgiving tablescape? We’ve got you covered! From classic and traditional to bold and earthy, these designs prove Thanksgiving is all about the table—the food, the company and, of course, the place settings! When setting our Thanksgiving table, we like to avoid all things kitschy—namely pumpkins—and embrace the colors of the season—gold and copper metallics, wood tones, and occasionally a pop of bold color in shades of burgundy and berry. Also, don’t be scared to get creative with the place cards: leather, wood, or even magnolia leaves can make for fun additions. Enjoy!
Rustic meets nautical was the name of the game for Kristin and Michael’s greenery-filled Eastern Shore wedding. Hosted on the grounds of the groom’s family home outside St. Michaels, the celebration was filled with shoreline views, layers of neutrals and possibly our favorite signature drink of all time—spicy vodka lemonade forever! Farm tables and wood signs brought out the rustic side of this family-filled celebration, while nautical touches such as oyster shell place cards and a sailcloth reception tent tied everything together from scene to table. And let’s not forget we now have a new favorite color thanks to those gorgeous mauve bridesmaid dresses! Enjoy!
It’s Friday and the last day of summer. So we’re celebrating the only way we know how—with a super fun margarita bar, of course! Start with the salt (we opted for Himalayan pink!), add the rocks and tequila of your choice, infuse with flavor (to make it spicy, fruity or classic), garnish and voila! Put all these ingredients on an adorable hand-lettered table topper from Stephanie B Design and it’s pretty much next level! Cheers!
