rustic chic thanksgiving tablescape

My thanksgiving table came together as easy as 1, 2, 3, 4, 5! Five inspiring items created my dream tablescape for this Thanksgiving. It all started when I spotted these Burlap Charger Plates (3) from Oriental Trading. I knew they’d set the perfect tone for a rustic but chic dinner table. 

And I couldn’t resist the beautiful Thanksgiving Silver Charms (4) that I wrap around each napkin. They read “Be Thankful” and add an elegant touch to the place setting. Gorgeous Pheasant Feathers (5) add an organic look and I love their leopard type pattern! I just slipped those in under the silver charm for a beautiful juxtaposition of textures. 

A set of Silver Lanterns (1) add height, drama, and ambiance to the table, while the Orange Glass Votives (2) add color and fun to the whole look. 

To unify the whole tablescape, I nestled a few olive branches around the center of the table. I just clipped those from my yard. I bought a few fragrant round-leafed eucalyptus branches at our local flower store and my neighbor Susan let me take some of her yummy kumquats to finish off the look around all the candlelight.

 I love how it all turned out and this whole look was very budget friendly

The fragrance of the fresh greens and citrus is amazing!

I used vintage ivory Wedgwood china and heirloom flatware.

Just a hint of orange is perfect!

Two burlap runners laid across the table add more texture.

The kumquats add a festive touch. 

These "Be Thankful" charms are my new Thanksgiving
 heirlooms and I'll use every year from now on!

The burlap on burlap look works.

A table always needs a little fresh accent or two.

I love the effect when the candles are lit!

    1. Those burlap table runners are from Home Goods, purchased a few years ago.
