I have a 'thing' for blush and amethyst and pretty little pumpkins.
Especially with a garland of seeded eucalyptus,
a sprinkling of vintage brass,
pretty pale blue dishes
and lots of blushing blooms.
It is no secret that I am a huge fan of table settings all year long.
And for Thanksgiving- I always think of a little rich and elegant type looks.
One with a little bit more bold colors-
but in warm and romantic inspired ways.
And I always love to set the Thanksgiving table outdoors and
include all of that natural ambiance as well.
There is something about a table set out under the stars
with a sprinkling of moody candle light
the sound of nature all around
and those rustic elements that play beautifully with the refined.
I rarely use a table cloth when setting the table outdoors-
that weathered wood speaks to me.
And is a perfect backdrop for pretty detailed plates and vintage inspired silver plate flatware.
For the centerpiece- I started with my favorite fresh green- seeded eucalyptus
and used a few sprigs to create a simple light garland.
I added in those vintage brass candlesticks with those 'dripless candles' that don't really seem to be dripless...
but between you and me...
I secretly adore when they look like this.
And rich amethyst colored wine glasses brings in
a sweeter romantic color touch.
But maybe my favorite part of this table setting
is the centerpiece itself.
The one that is set atop that seeded eucalyptus
surrounded by a plethora of little white baby boo pumpkins.
It is a trio of white pumpkin centerpiece planters.
I have seen pumpkins used as centerpieces for awhile now-so it isn't a new idea-
but my take on them is a little less orange
and a whole lot little more romantic.
With roses, sprigs of eucalyptus, stock, and other fillers-
I filled the first one- and then created two more.
And I am in love with how this trio marching down the center of the table turned out.
Simple, elegant and romantic inspired- and so easy to do.
Stay tuned for the DIY coming your way
