Simply Elegant Thanksgiving Tablescape Details:  Ivory Pom Pom Sweater / Rust Corduroy Skirt (also seen here) / Juliska Pewter Soup Bowl / Forest Walk Salad Plate / Forest Walk Mug / Forest Walk Pitcher / Bamboo Dinner Plate / Bamboo Charger / Musee Flatware / Silver Stemless Wine Glass / Whitewash Wooden Candlesticks / Ivory Taper / Gray Napkins

Creating a beautiful and welcoming tablescape for family and friends is my love language.  Being able to work with friends to create them is such a blessing!  This simply elegant Thanksgiving tablescape features hand made garland from my friends at Gracious Garlands. Bringing together simple yet elegant elements creates a warm and memorable tablescape.

Gracious Garlands is an online greenery boutique dedicated to making life’s moments more beautiful and less stressful. Gracious Garlands works with farmers around the country to design lush wreaths and garlands that are shipped directly from the farm right to your doorstep. In addition to our online boutique, they also offer custom services including event design + installation.  Gracious Garlands is offering 10% off to my readers with AWLHOLIDAY10.  Order by November 20 for Thanksgiving and November 29 for Christmas deliveries.

The beautiful Fall Garland featuring Magnolia and Olive leaves highlighted with Seeded Eucalyptus provides lash and varied tones of greens and browns perfect for Thanksgiving and Fall.  It creates a beautiful focal point for a nature inspired tablescape.  Interspersed in the garland are whitewashed wood candleholders topped with dripless taper candles. I absolutely adore the glow created by so many candles!

Each place setting was created using the Classic Bamboo pattern from Juliska that I also featured for Easter, a blue and white fall tablescape and last year‘s Thanksgiving tablescape as well. I love the versatility of this natural pattern. I’ve topped the classic bamboo charger and dinner plate with Juliska Forest Walk Salad Plate and the Pewter Footed Soup Bowl. Juliska’s Forest Walk is such a gorgeous fall pattern. The natural elements hand-painted on these plates are stunning. A highlight of the pattern though is the antler detail on the mugs, pitcher and baking dishes.  My two favorites soups for these bowls are Homemade Vegetable Soup and Honey Ginger Butternut Squash Soup.  The latter is perfect for Thanksgiving!

I’ve shown the table with the Forest Walk mug and have a great Mulled Wine recipe coming soon that would be perfect for them!  I’ve also shown you the setting with the beautiful silverleaf stemless wine glasses from this last minute entertaining post. They are such a steal!

I’m decorating my home for the holidays this week so I can bring you some more great holiday inspiration. Stay tuned for a special project with an extremely talented friend you’ll definitely want to download and my newest e-book.  They will both help you prepare for holiday entertaining!  Subscribers will get first access!

I’ve also added a Holiday Tab on the Menu above where you will find Gift Guides and Inspiration for Thanksgiving and Christmas all in one spot!  The Gift Guides there currently are from last year but still have great ideas to get you started while we curate the Gift Guides you’ll have access to shortly!
