Glowing with gold: My Thanksgiving table

Thanksgiving Table

This year I decided to go golden for my Thanksgiving table!

The centerpiece is comprised of two shimmering leaf garlands from a local decor shop called Gordon’s of Metairie.  I placed a small wreath around my glass hurricane and wove burlap ribbon between it all.

Here’s a tip: get a thick roll of burlap, ribbon or fabric.  Roughly every two feet, tie a bow, until you have a long garland.  Then, weave that in an out of whatever is on your table.  It adds some great dimension and depth!  The finishing touch for the centerpiece was the addition of some golden pine cones and grapes.

For the table setting, I broke out my Wedgwood ‘Golden Bird’ china and toned down the formal look with rustic woven chargers and mismatched napkins from Pottery Barn.

The finished table is warm, inviting and ready for a feast!

  1. Hi Annie,

    What a beautiful tablescape! I could use your help with mine on Thanksgiving. There will be eight of us; Vera and Bob are coming in tonight to your parents. It sounds like Vera got a good report on her surgery, so there is much to be thankful for.

    Wish you could join us, but we will be seeing you soon for Christmas.

    Love, Mimi

    • Thanks, Mimi! Your table always looks beautiful! I’m sure it’ll be great. If you want to add a little something extra, you could try the ribbon idea. Get a really thick roll of ribbon (at least 4 inches) and tie bows every couple feet, then wind it in and out of your centerpiece. It adds a nice touch! Send my love to Vera and Bob. I’m SO happy to hear she’s doing well!
