It’s time to dress + impress with your table settings! Doing so is made easier with the help of our friend Target. (nope, this is not sponsored, although I feel like they owe me big time for everything I do for them. right?!) Anywhos, a quick trip to Target + we were ready get that table dressed up! We layered a cute cream and gold table cloth, found here, with some different colored placemats, found here and here. (they are on sale yay!!) We then got extra fancy and used cloth napkins, because save the environment + cuteness, they can be found here and here. I waited until this gold flatware finally went on sale and snatched some up + they have several different options here.
I lettered names right onto magnolia leaves that I cut from my neighbors tree! Thanks neighbor! I used a Craft Smart white paint pen and it worked liked a dream. It was actually way easier than I thought it was going to be. We created the floral arrangement in a floral workshop with Anthemum where we started with some eucalyptus + bay leaves as the base. The trick with the greens is making sure none get into the water since this is what kills arrangements faster by making your water go bad! (pro tip from Bianca) I always put in more greens than I think is necessary because it gives your arrangement more structure. We used a maroon peony, swoon, for our main lady in the arrangement and then added in some carnations + roses + filler flowers (wax flowers + astilbe!) I would encourage you to go to your local grocery store and grab some flowers and play around with arranging them! It is so fun and really you can’t go wrong with flowers, they are always pretty!
For look number 2, we laid down a eucalyptus + grape vine garland and sprinkled in some bud vases + birch wood. This is super simple + easy. You can usually snag a $2.99 bunch of Eucalyptus at Trader Joes and cut them off of the bigger stem and lay them down directly on the table + just keep layering them for a fuller look!
We hope you have the best Thanksgiving week!
