over the next several posts, I'm going to show you how to use the same basic elements
to create three different tablescape styles for thanksgiving.
today we begin with a style that expresses soft, feminine vintage look in a pale palette:
Tablescape #1: the Vintage White table
white, ivory, and soft tan colors are represented in the linens, dinnerware, natural materials
and decorative accessories.
branches of dried eucalyptus leaves are used for the centerpiece,
paired with leaves cut from vintage paper.
in this case, the paper is vintage sheet music -
you can find my tutorial to make these leaves HERE.
the leaves are placed in a weighted vase, which is covered with a creamy and soft sweater sleeve.
the vase is placed on top of a cake pedestal in the center of the table.
an assortment of both real and handmade pumpkins in white and ivory colors
gather around the vase and under the pedestal.
a few extra leaves and white carnation blooms are placed throughout the arrangement.
candles in white and soft ivory are placed around the centerpiece
[not too close to the dried leaves and cotton sweater pumpkins!]
another vintage touch is the addition of glass canning jars, with votive & tealight candles on top
you could fill the jars with white beans, seeds, or other natural materials
to coordinate with the color palette if you wanted to.
the dinnerware for this setting is white ceramic, the vintage flatware has a floral design,
and the linen is a vintage embroidered tablecloth and damask napkins.
a soft tan napkin would look lovely in this arrangement, as well.
as shown in my last tablescape, the coffee cup is used as a place marker holder -
and the take-home gift of a small Sweet Sweater Pumpkin nestles in the cup, as well.
By this weekend,
I'll have new packages of small Sweet Sweater Pumpkins packaged in sets of four and six
for sale here on the blog -
ready for you to use on your Thanksgiving tables!
A gentle reminder:
sets of three pumpkins in the light and neutral palette are only available for a few more days.
Sets of orange pumpkins have all sold out.
stay tuned for my next post, and watch this tablescape change!
