I love to keep my dining room table set year round, but this year has been a little different with a lot more working (and eating!) happening at home! I usually don't spend much time on making a special Thanksgiving table, and focus more on the food, but with people potentially celebrating with immediate family only, by themselves, or smaller gatherings than normal, I wanted to create a way for an intimate table to feel special, even if you're ordering takeout and skipping the normal feast!
I'm sharing these simple pieces that I used to create this table because I'm a firm believer in getting double duty from all of you pieces - I don't have "Thanksgiving specific" napkins or china, etc., so all of these items are perfect for using on your table year-round!
I have had the Great White Pottery Barn dishes for years and LOVE them; my only call out is that they are huge and take up a ton of space in the dishwasher. The salesperson told me that when we bought them, but I didn't care...and I still don't care, but just wanted to share in case you do! They are perfect for layering plates, and have a nice ridge so food doesn't slide off the plate (if you're moving around???? haha)
I normally use a gold charger under my white plates, but wanted to mix it up this year. These woven charger/placemats are perfection and can be used for so many occasions or "just because!" I'm a fan. They're really reasonably priced for a pack of four, so I'm really happy with them.
I splurged (for me!) a tiny bit to get these napkins! This was a real splurge, but was just more than I would normally spend on napkins. Ya know? For most people, these are probably reasonably priced. haha! Everyone spends differently! ;) That being said, I'm so happy that I got them and just LOVE the terracotta color - perfection for a neutral table!
I'm sharing the DIY Pampas Grass Installation tomorrow, but I'm just dead over how amazing it turned out! Amazinggg! I actually foraged this pampas grass on the side of the highway...is that illegal? IDK. It was worth it! Even though my allergies went insane the next day...that's what I get for climbing around in bushes I guess! Ha! If you're wanting to go the safe route, you can order it on craft sites and Amazon - linked below!
