Beautiful and Elegant Thanksgiving Tablescape
Can you believe were a little more than a week out from Thanksgiving? Time is surely flying these last few weeks of the decade!
To bring this elegant Thanksgiving tablescape to life, I partnered with Bering’s, a local favorite of mine for gifts, homewares, stationary and more!
When I was working on my initial concepts for this year’s Thanksgiving table, I knew I wanted to play with rust, beige, brown and gold tones for the holiday. You might remember my 2018 Thanksgiving tablescape, which drew inspiration from fall’s harvest and pumpkins. This year, I wanted to play to a bit more of a traditional tablescape, yet totally elegant and thus we have the 2019 elegant Thanksgiving tablescape.
We use our dining room space quite often and I’ve been enjoying decorating with the space. One thing I’ve been loving to play with lately is height, so for my centerpieces, I chose beautiful wood carved candlesticks topped with rolled beeswax pillar candles. What I love about the candlesticks is they can be used all year around! You can find them locally at Bering’s, otherwise here is a similar looking set.
I continued to play with the height factor, along with adding to the autumnal feel, by adding in small and large wheat stacks to my table center. I added in some resin antlers to tie in with my pieces of china featuring the deer and stags. Perhaps what I love most about this centerpiece, is there is no live-flowers, meaning I can set my table in advanced alleviating some of the stress!
For my place settings, I opted for a bit of elegance with simple metallic linen napkins and the most stunning enamel and brass napkin rings by Michael Aram. I placed them on the deer and stag plates by Gien France, Juliska whitewash dinner plates, beautiful ruffle charger plates by Annieglass (at the top of my entertaining wishlist) and burnt orange placemats by Bodrum Laurel.

One of my absolute favorite things about my little corner of the Internet, is the opportunity to share the love with local-Houston entrepreneurs. My sweet friend Sarah, behind Mississippi Hummingbird Co. bakery, recently started creating the most beautiful cakes, and if you’re a local reader, I encourage you to reach out to Sarah for any of your cake needs.
I had an idea in mind for this stunner of a cake, and Sarah took my Pinterest ideas and ran with it! This natural cake featured homemade Carmel (absolutely delicious) and carmel-flavored cake. Then to keep the natural look, Sarah finished the cake off with fresh Blackberries, Figs, Pomegranate seeds, Sage and flowers. It was almost too pretty to eat, almost!
