It is probably no surprise that one of my favorite parts of the holidays is setting up a pretty table to gather around. It doesn’t have to be over the top or heavily themed, but I like to pull out the gold flatware and add a few unique pieces to make the table a little extra special. I’m calling this year’s a “natural luxe” tablescape.
To help you re-create a similar look I’ve listed a few ideas to try on your Thanksgiving table and I’ve teamed up with two amazing brands, The Citizenry and Suite One Studio, to give away these gorgeous pieces so that one lucky winner can get a head start!
Idea 1: Layer multiple dishes and napkins for extra depth.
For a holiday table I usually like to start with a charger, then add a napkin, then dinner plate and usually top it off with something decorative (like the pheasant feather) at each place setting. This table got its’ extra layer of luxe with the gold rimmed dessert plate and gold rimmed bowl that would be perfect for a little amuse bouche.
Idea 2: Create a centerpiece from the produce aisle.
Thanksgiving celebrates a time of harvest and bounty so why not create a centerpiece from the farmer’s market or just the produce aisle at your local grocery store. To keep it looking tasteful I stuck with a monochromatic palette. I love the texture of the artichokes which I used to make the bulk of the arrangement and then added in pears, gourds, and a little eucalyptus to fill it out.
Idea 3: Keep it neutral but play up textures.
This year I stuck with a neutral color palette and relied heavily on the patterns and textures of all the natural elements to up the luxe factor. Black, white, brown, and gold make for a rich color combination but bringing in the textures of the cow horn tumbler, pheasant feather, marble tabletop, cowhide rug, and wood grain planter take it to a whole ‘nother level.
