Thanksgiving Tabletop Decorating Elements

thanksgiving tabletop decorating elements

Luckily I have a stepdad who has an abundance of cow skulls and horns lying around …and because my mom doesn’t want “dead animals” in her house, I get them all 😉 Thanks Barry!

I’ll be using my DIY Holiday Tablecloth as a base and possibly the ikat blanket {details below} as a runner, with these vintage tarnished silver candlesticks. Love.

Couleur Nature Kantha Throw in Multi -IkAt- available on GILT NOW! – the link is for the pink one but if you see below where it says “You Would Also Love” & they show it in my multi-color and oranges

I actually ordered a blue and white Ikat throw for our Master Bedroom but this one came instead. I was going to send it back but laid it over the bench in our dining room and it sort of tied all the colors from our Living Room together …and I kinda fell in love. Like I said above, I’ll either use it on the table in the center or keep it on the bench.

plum leaf placemats+beige lace tablecloth+kitchen tabletop elements

Plum leaf placemats from Bed Bath and Beyond $1.99 each over a vintage beige lace remnant. Possibly using these leaf napkins from Crate & Barrel {link: closest match – bought last year} with my DIY rope napkin rings

…is always a bit more fun/cute

White Poinsettias and pumpkins+outdoor thanksgiving decor

* I purposely bought my Halloween pumpkins late in October so I could use them for Thanksgiving decorating as well …sitting next to pretty White Poinsettias in white pots.

…and a festive fall wreath on the front door.

The husband and I are finishing up hanging the Christmas lights today …and we keep adding more sections of the house and running out of lights -he’s out getting a few more sets now. I think when we finally finish and turn them all on, I’m going to feel like the Griswolds. Here’s hoping they all work 😉

    Gorgeous!! I love the idea of the horns + the little white pumpkins!

    When I was walking through World Market the other day, looking at all of their table/kitchen things, I decided that I would like a job in which I just make tablescapes for people. I think it might not happen, but a girl can dream, right? 🙂
