harvest table: happy thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is tomorrow! Somehow my favorite holiday completely snuck up on me (finishing up our 2013 weddings and doing some Lovely Day 2014 planning may have gotten in the way…) but I can’t wait to dive head first into stuffing and cranberry sauce at my in-laws house tomorrow. As a somewhat-newlywed, I am still getting used to missing my family during holidays (we switch family’s every other year) but I’m blessed to have a food-loving group in CT to fill the void. And this year, we have so much to be thankful for.

Better late than never, I designed an inspiration board to fill a harvest table. Close your eyes and imagine yards of burlap runner on a farm table, DIY gold sprayed mini pumpkins at each place setting and rustic wooden accents in a handmade charger and serving spoons. I simply adore the idea of a pomegranate centerpiece to add rosey warmth to the table in lieu of flower arrangements. Gold taper candles in mercury glass add a glow and stamped muslin favor bags send family home with sweet (pecan pie bar) treats (recipe link below!).

I can feel the warm fire on my face, and we don’t even have a fireplace. Happy Thanksgiving, all!


1. Fill a vintage silver server with rich, dark fruits, including pretty pomegrantes

2. Spray mini pumpkins gold for each place setting with metallic gold spray paint

3. Cozy up to the fire with this gorgeous geometric cotton throw from Terrain

4. Make your own rustic table runner with yards of burlap, available through Uline

5. We love these Martha Stewart mercury glass candlesticks and would pair them with elegant gold taper candles for a metallic contrast

6. Your family will love you for serving these absolutely divine pecan pie bars. Make them immediately!

7. Leftovers are a big part of Thanksgiving. Pretty them up by stamping muslin bags with your favorite message

8. Our friends over at Design House of Moira created these darling (free!) place card downloads. Print them on card stock to lean against the gold mini pumpkins at each place setting

9. We’re completely obsessed with these vintage wood chargers from Pottery Barn (and they are on sale!). We paired them with Vera Wang’s gilded leaf gold dinner plates to add a touch of sophistication to the table

10. These Crate & Barrel farmhouse serving spoons are perfect for scooping mashed potatoes and serving gravy
