I count your friendship, loyal support and continued readership among the things I am grateful for.
Family will gather together here at Places In The Home to enjoy each other’s company, a Thanksgiving dinner with all the traditional trimmings guaranteed to please, and the Southern comforts of home we’ve come to love and appreciate.
May love of family and friends, health, the comforts of home, appreciation of beauty, and wealth in all of these richly touch and bless your life each and every day.
It’s the 1st of November. Do you know what your Thanksgiving tabletop and decorating plan is?
Inspiration is everywhere, and we thrive on it here at Places In The Home.
Let me share with you a few of the Thanksgiving tabletop and decorating suggestions and finds in seasonal color, texture and pattern to set the holiday tone and the Thanksgiving table with the look of the season.
Fall clearance sales are underway much to the delight of the tablescape maven.
May I also suggest checking out dollar, craft, hobby, and fabric stores for candles, candle holders, decor, chargers, etc… Dollar stores are inexpensive to begin with, so there’s that.
The upside to Christmas and holiday items being stocked and displayed on a store shelf near you earlier and earlier each year is the deep discounts on fall and harvest themed items shoppers see sooner and sooner in the season.
The cream craft pumpkin from Lowe’s is 50% off, and the Ashland Finial Vase from Michael’s is on clearance. Both are calling my name.
After creating the gallery I remembered Dollar Tree stocks a white stoneware dinner plate with gold rim. You can’t go wrong with a set of white dinner plates with gold or platinum rims. A simple yet elegant white dinner plate makes a strong argument for the perfect foundation plate, and complements almost every china pattern known to man.
My style preference leans traditional. Classic tableware and vintage linens set most of my holiday tablescapes and Thanksgiving tabletop, but I do like to gift the eye a decorative surprise.
Marry a traditional china pattern to a modern and/or contemporary pattern.
Intermingle pops of bold color with the customary fall palette.
Mix seasonal buds and branches with roses and taxidermy.
I am always impressed and amazed when decor accents and accessories that normally would not be paired together come together in perfected contrast to create remarkable beauty.
This years Thanksgiving table planning is in full swing.
Decorative accents and accessories are going into place and company’s coming.
Clearance sales making room for Black Friday deals and steals makes anticipating the decorative needs of this year’s Thanksgiving table and hitting the place order button a gobble gobble gotta have it a no-brainer.
Happy Thanksgiving, dear friends! In this wonderful season of togetherness, sharing and thankfulness, I am continually grateful for the beauty of each day and for each of you, my readers and friends. May you and yours be blessed with love, health, safety, comfort, joy and the beauty of the entire holiday season.
