For the last few years, I’ve adopted a “less is more” mentality with it comes to the holidays and entertaining in general. I try to focus less on the build up and themed decor and more on enjoying the experience and creating a cozy atmosphere. I’ve slowly but surely donated most of my purely holiday themed decor and added more items to my collection that embody the holiday season but could still be used year round. This helps to not only cut down on the clutter and storage that I have to deal with but also make decorating less stressful and more enjoyable.
Our Thanksgiving table for this year was no exception.
I bought a plaid scarf from Target’s Dollar Spot and layered it with a simple linen tablecloth and burlap runner to create a layered looks that feels ridiculously warm. These super inexpensive silver charger plates along with a combination of pieces I already owned create a Thanksgiving table that feels cozy and inviting, and still seasonal without feeling too thematic.
I layered our simple white plates with these sweet antique glass lace dishes from my grandmother and topped those with blue linens tied with twine and a sprig of eucalyptus for a simple yet special dinner place setting.
A few Trader Joe’s eucalyptus branches and a combination of candlesticks along the center of the table add some height variation and a bit of green and shimmer.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
