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!
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!
We do so many waterfront weddings, it’s easy to get stuck on the color blue (which seems to be what EVERYONE wants this year!). And while we absolutely adore layering water tones with neutrals—because it always turns out gorgeous, duh!—every now and then we need to push ourselves creatively to get out of the rut. Enter this fun tablescape that’s a tad feminine, a tad modern, and a whole lot of pretty! We’ve been literally trying to convince every client to use this black flatware from DC Rental because we’re totally obsessed. So, naturally, we had to use it on this design. From there, we wanted to steer away from basically all things traditional, so we opted for hand-lettered placemats in lieu of a table linen, used a fun triangular napkin fold (that came to us on the spot!), and incorporated modern accents like black votives and vellum menus. We’re obsessed!
