We’re hosting Thanksgiving this year and it will be the first time my nephews come to Nashville! So the pressure is on to plan a fun holiday weekend but also to have a top notch Thanksgiving dinner. So I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t been thinking about this table decor for a while now.
Just like everything that I look to buy for my home, I don’t ever want to buy anything that I can’t use more than once. So I stuck with low key neutrals and a touch of glam with these CB2 votives. It’s the perfect touch to add some light as well as a touch of decor for the holiday. I went back and forth between tall candlesticks but I think the short ones are easy to use for other events and the tall candlesticks can be hard to see the little kiddos across the table.
Now for the centerpiece. I have to admit that I‘m not very good with floral arrangements. I had thought of doing a greenery arrangement in this compote that I have but I didn’t think I was up for the challenge. So I went with a garland as a centerpiece because that felt like a great seasonal touch and an easy get from the local nursery or to use your holiday garland before you hang it up. I still wanted height in the center though so I used my trusty votive from Target that I have used for just about everything plus a large pillar candle. Candlelight is a great and easy way to add decor without too much “stuff”, and it just makes it feel so cozy!
I found these little place card holders that I just couldn’t resist! I think the texture adds a nice touch to the whole table so it isn’t too flat. They have them pictured with Polaroids of the person instead of a written name which I think is a great idea! Could give a kiddo an activity during the day to collect everyone’s picture and adds an even more personal touch. And plus, they’re just so cute!
I love a touch of brass or gold during the holidays and think that the table is the perfect place to do it. It’s so much warmer than silver and will instantly make your table feel more glamorous. I found these napkins rings from H&M that won’t break the bank and would be super easy to use for another event as well. I love the festive ones with bells or greenery, but that feels too holiday specific. I wanted ones that I could use all year round and think that these work perfectly.
I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday, and if you’re hosting and in need of a few more items for your table, check out some of the links below to put together your own similar table setting.
