Whimsical Natural Thanksgiving Table Decorations

Whimsical Natural Thanksgiving Table Decorations are totally my passion!  Frugal, monochromatic, and feminine with a touch of masculine so my guys are completely comfortable, too!  I gave you a little sneak peek the other day…are you ready for the reveal!?!
#turkeytalk
My pumpkins were still firm so I gave them another round of life by spraying the chalkboard paint with a high gloss white spray paint.
#turkeytalk
Looking Good!

I started out with my favorite table runner, the one I made out of a drop cloth from Home Depot.  It’s extra long in length and the perfect color for all occasions.  I monogrammed our last name initial onto each side with my Singer Futura, love that machine, I’ll have to share more of what it does for me soon.

Next, I grabbed eight place settings of my basic white dishes from the cabinet.  Along with eight place settings of silverware and eight of my wine goblets (the one’s that look like they came from Potterybarn, but actual were 99c at Garden Ridge).  Already with the dark wood backdrop and bright light that bounces off of the mirror (which once upon a time was silver from Garden Ridge, but white fits this space so much better) above the table.

My tablescapes are always set with iced-tea, usually mint,
my favorite and hot-tea, usually chai, also my favorite!

On top of my homemade linen table runner, I added my white pumpkins, white candlesticks, peacock feathers, cream eyelet linens, my collection of birds and deer antlers from my neighbor who is obviously a great hunter!  Whimsical Natural Thanksgiving Table Decorations…LOVE!

Oh good, here’s a close up of what my homemade linen table cloth with monogram, compliments of my Singer Futura.

Peacock feathers are totally my favorite this season.  Something about their iridescent emerald and gold feathers

I fell in love with these ivory lace napkins when I was at Pier One.  They seemed so vintage inspired, I knew they were a perfect splurge for my table this season and think they’ll be useful many of times in the years to come.  So pretty and so basic.  They compliment my whimsical natural Thanksiving Table Decorations real well!

  1. I love your table scape. I love how you combined natural elements, like the feathers and antlers with metallic accents. So glamorous!

  2. I just found your blog at the link party on Centsational Girl and it is wonderful! Your table is gorgeous. I have two obsessions right now – peacock anything and antlers and your table combines both!! I also read that you have a Yorkie. Aren’t they the best? You have me as a subscriber for sure.

    Glad I found you on Funky Junk Interiors. I am planning an ‘all white’ (with a pop of a red something) Christmas tablescape or mantel and thinking it might not have the warm/homey feeling that I want, but your tablescape has inspired me as it is very warm and inviting. I am a new Blogger and hope you will visit me at Timeless Treasures. Thanksgiving Blessings. Audrey Z.

    Love LOVE the table runner. I was in Target a week ago and had a furious internal debate over buying a new one for Christmas. Frugality won out – but now that I see the drop cloth….

  76. rachel@Acts of Life says:
