thanksgiving place setting

classic & simple

Happy November! As the air gets crisp and cool, I’m so excited to begin bringing you my favorite holiday inspiration. would say that a place setting is a very essential element of any holiday dinner. This is a great way to add some character to your table in a very functional way.

To start, I laid down the burlap runner, which was just cut from a simple roll from the craft store. Then I began the place settings with the gorgeous dark-stained rattan chargers.  This sounds weird, but I chose them because I love the way they match my floor.

Next I layered on the dreamy white plates with a beaded edge. White plates are so classic and easy to style- they are the perfect foundation for any holiday. I know these are going to be a perennial staple in my entertaining.

After I got the basics down I folded the simple linen hemstitch napkins and tied a piece of twine lightly around them. I punched tags from craft paper, wrote an inspirational word on each, and looped the twine through. It still needed a little something, so I tucked a piece of rosemary in each.

To create a centerpiece in minutes I arranged branches down the middle to form a swag. Then I finished off the table with my classic mercury candlesticks. The final effect can transition really well to Christmas, which I think is perfect. To me Thanksgiving really kicks off the countdown to Christmas.
