I’m so excited to share this year’s Thanksgiving tablescape and I’m also sharing a delicious Prosecco holiday cocktail recipe! This tablescape is easily one of my favorites as it incorporates rustic and modern elements with touches of gold to add some glam!
Designing tablescapes is something I truly enjoy and I love coming up an idea and seeing it come to life. Sometimes my design starts from simply finding one piece that I love and then I build the tablescape around that one piece. This year, that one piece, were these rich floral table runners that I found at At Home. Initially my idea was going in a totally different direction until I stumbled upon these runners. I picked up two as I new I wanted to run them perpendicular to the table and have each place setting positioned on part of each runner.
The floral pattern on these runners feature colors such as burgundy/red, different shades of green/teal, pinks/mauves, and mustard yellow. The colors truly spoke to me and my ideas for our Thanksgiving tablescape started to shift!
As I shopped at At Home, I found additional pieces like these gorgeous clear glass chargers with gold rims, these teal and white plates also with gold rims, these gorgeous water and wine glasses with (you guessed it…gold rims), and these modern white and gold candlestick holders. I found the colorful candlesticks (which match and pull out the colors in the runners) from Hobby Lobby, the napkins, napkin rings, and burlap runner from Pier 1, the rustic wood slabs in the center of the table from Target, and the gold flatware from Amazon.
For the centerpiece, I placed one of the candlestick holders on top of layered wood slabs to create some height and then placed greenery, peonies, and berries around the candlestick to create a welcoming and warm focal point to our table. We are going to make some great memories this year sitting around our table with some of our family members.
I hope this provides you with some inspiration for your Thanksgiving tablescape this year! I encourage you to get creative, design a space that is cozy, warm, and inviting, and have fun while you are doing it! Simple things like candles and greenery go a long way!
Next up…an easy to make and delicious Prosecco holiday cocktail…
Prosecco Holiday Cocktail
- apple cider *high quality
- cinnamon sugar
This cocktail is much like a mimosa but with apple cider! Fill a wide brim bowl with cinnamon sugar, wet the rim of each glass, and then turn the glass in the cinnamon sugar mixture until the rim is covered. Then fill your glass 1/2-3/4 of the way with Prosecco and the remainder of the way with apple cider. You can add more or less of either and adjust according to your personal preference. I personally like a little more apple cider with my Prosecco.
Serve to your guest and enjoy! This cocktail would be a great option to have for a Thanksgiving day breakfast as well. Cheers!
