Thanksgiving Table

Well, it is officially Thanksgiving week.  Seriously, where has this year gone?!?!

Second to what I'm wearing (of course), I've been thinking & planning away for "my" table this year. In past years, my mom, her best friend Peggy, and I have each set & decorated a table for the big meal.  Then, we've had friends, family, and even blog readers, vote for their favorite table.

We haven't done this the last couple of years for various reasons (mainly because I was such a hot mess this time last year); but, this year, I'm excited to be decorating a table again.  (And, as an added challenge, I'm going to do it on a very small - as in less than $20.00 - budget.)

I don't want to give away my plans just yet; but, here are some photos that have been inspiring me lately.

In case you can't tell, I'm kind-of into the natural/"found" look.  I'm also a bit obsessed with those Billy Bud flowers - adorable! What do you think? What are your plans for Thanksgiving?  Will you be setting a table?  (I'd seriously love to hear about it and/or see pictures!)  Any ideas for me?

Short week team.  Short week. :)

Be thankful.

If you're interested, you can see photos of tables past here - 2009, 2010 and 2011.


  1. I love the idea of table decorating and making it in to a contest! That would be so fun!

  2. You know, I have been cooking Thanksgiving dinner for over 20 years now so I kind of had a breakdown a few weeks ago and demanded that we all go out for dinner. About a week ago, I started feeling ashamed of myself. Isn't it a mother's responsibility to prepare a Thanksgiving meal for her family? So, now I'm cooking for 14 people. I'm stressing out to the max but am so happy I'm doing it. After everything is said and done, it's a perfect gift from me to the people I love.

    I love all your ideas. Good luck and happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

  3. We are hosting Thanksgiving for the first time and are very excited. To save time this week, we set our table yesterday. We have a beautiful Charleston centerpiece bowl (Crate & Barrel) in the middle filled with cinnamon-scented pine cones from Target. The tablecloth is white with golden embroidery. I love how it all turned out!

  4. Burlap is like $2 a yard (something really cheap like that), and it would go with your natural/found look! Love you. :) (Thanksgiving will be a good excuse to wear your maternity jeans.)


Your comments are what makes this thing fun! I LOVE to hear from you and do my best to respond to everyone! THANK YOU!
