|A Beautiful Pottery Barn - Style Tablescape|
I know I already wished all of you a Happy Thanksgiving, but I couldn't resist posting these pictures of my neighbor Judy's beautiful Thanksgiving tablescape. The candelabra is from Pottery Barn as is the burlap runner idea. Judy purchased some burlap at a local fabric store and sheared the edges to get the right look. I think it really adds to the table - gives it a neutral pop of color. I like this metal candelabra because it makes a grand statement on the table but allows for conversation because you can see through it. As you can see, Judy added her southern touch by arranging magnolia leaves around the base of the metal candelabra. Very clever idea and also adds a pop of color.
|Judy's Beautiful Table|
Here you can appreciate the entire tablescape. Judy had some beautiful fall earth-tone napkins which she folded and draped across the salad plates underneath the soup bowls.
|Burlap and Black Fabric Banded Around the Lampshades|
To rhythm some color from the table to the chandelier, Judy added a band of burlap to her lampshades. I suggested she also add a band of black fabric to repeat the black color in her metal candelabra. Doesn't it look great?
May your stuffing be fluffy
May your pillows be plump
May your potatoes and sofa
Have never a lump
May your yams be delicious
And your dishes take the prize
And may your Thanksgiving decor
Be a feast for the eyes!
