Pin It Now! Thanksgiving is next month! Is anyone else as excited as I am? This year will be my first year ever hosting Thanksgiving. It'll be a small group, but people I absolutely adore and I want to make it special. I think Thanksgiving is a holiday that deserves special attention to detail. I think that if you are hosting dinner at your house you should set the table and have a center piece and set a mood. The whole shabang. Holidays are about memories and a huge party of those memories is the ambience. Ambience helps create emotions and feelings. People will always remember how your dinner and setting made them feel that year. I don't want Thanksgiving at our home to ever be boring or simple. Simple is any dinner any night. I want to have candles and beautiful fall colors and a table setting that is inviting and meant for conversation.
This year I want to incorporate a semi-elegant setting with golds, browns, oranges, yellows and a little bit of red. Here's my inspiration board:
1) I love the beautiful centerpiece and candles in this table setting. This person did a lovely job at creating a festive atmosphere. I think my only concern with this setting is that the centerpiece is so tall that people across from eachother couldn't hold a conversation.
2) Love the colors and the lanterns. (picture credit)
3) Good Housekeeping shared this creative idea for a candle centerpiece. Nuts in jars! Love it.
4) I think the leaf place settings are adorable. And I love that the napkins are tied with brown ribbon. I love details! (picture credit)
