Giving Thanks in Style

ONE day when we move into a larger house and perhaps we have a couple of rugrats to call our own, we may get to host Thanksgiving. Of course, that would also require moving back to NC since we would want to invite our family!! For now, we'll enjoy "friendsgiving" and the joy of simply showing up, pies in tow. I do dream about hosting a dinner, though, with a gorgeous setting and festive tablescape. Here are a few of my favorites:

It's no secret that I LOVE a black & white stripe. The feather details are perfect and I love the pop of the rasberry colored flowers. I would add the gold pumpkins from above!!

The deep purples, pops of orange, and fushia mixed with the reclaimed wood are so warm and inviting. The magnolia leaves are perfect for any southern dinner! Additional interest is added with the mixed china. I think roasted brussles sprouts and a gorgeous turkey would fit right in!

A simple take on combining dark wood, black, white, and gold. While this table lacks a bit of color, I like how clean and fresh it is. Neutral, but easy. I'd imagine that kids would LOVE the chalk runner!

And my favorite:

When is Furbish not killing it? A far cry from the table above it, this lovely mix of pattern, texture, and whimsy makes my heart go pitter patter! If this was your every day mix, you can see how easy it is to just splash a few pumpkins and leaves in for Thanksgiving! Definitely worthy of a celebration. Gorge!

Are you hosting Thanksgiving this year? 
Like I said, we'll be showing up to a friend's home with pies in tow. Check out our recipe, featured on Funspired today!!
