2014 Thanksgiving Tablescape ~ Rustic Elegance



 Hi there friends...
I am honored to be one of the bloggers chosen by Sherry No Minimalist Here to participate in her Thanksgiving Vignette blog hop!!
~~~
I decided to put together a casual tablescape for Thanksgiving using everything I had on hand...
that even included the roses!
I shopped the house and grabbed things from different rooms...I even grabbed some of the baby boos I had in one of my lanterns outside.
I love how you can create something pretty without spending a dime!

I started by placing a piece of burlap on the table... instead of using one of my typical runners or tablecloths. 
 Then the layering began starting with my favorite chargers that I bought from Nell Hill's a few years ago.
I used my white everyday dishes...
pretty cloth napkins...
my small blue dishes...
and a baby boo pumpkin to complete the setting.

 I bought these blue and white dishes in Home Goods over the summer. 
They came as a set of four...love how they all have a different pattern on them.
I pulled out my MIL silverware and tied them with a piece of ribbon...adding a little cheetah print is always fun!
~~~

My MIL is no longer with us...my husband and I are very thankful to have this set!
I found this little brass tray at a flea market I frequent.
I love it...it travels around the house quite a bit!


Aren't these roses pretty! 
The two toned ones are my favorite...the colors are perfect for Fall!
Who wants to come join me for lunch:-)

Just when I thought I took enough pictures the sun started to shine so brightly in one of the windows...I couldn't resist...so I took a few more ;-)


Thanks so much for stopping by...and thank you Sherry for including me in this fun event!

What a pretty table setting! I love your Fall colored roses in the blue and white jar. The wicker chargers are a nice way to add texture to the table setting too. Perfect for Thanksgiving.

Barbara @ 21 Rosemary Lane said...

What a simple but elegant table setting Martina! I love the fact that you used plain white dishes and then layered the pretty napkins and blue and white plates on top. And those roses....whooowheeee they are screaming Autumn. Love the color paired with the blue and white vase...stunning!
Thank you so much for shariing and have a great day!

I love the blue and orange Martina, it's so pretty with the warmth of the wicker chargers.. But that cheetah ribbon might be my favorite thing on your table.

I do! I do! I do want to join you for lunch (jumping up and down with my arm in the air) I promise to behave and not steal your MIL's beautiful silver or break your sweet little blue and white dishes. Those roses are gorgeous. You hit rustic elegance right on the head. xo Diana

Martina, I just love the way you have set the table. Blue and white is always a favorite and paired with the colors of fall, it is outstanding. Everything looks very pretty..Happy Thursday..Judy

Shelia said...

Hi Martina! Oh, your table is just beautiful! I'm not surprised you could pull things from your other rooms - you have so many pretties! The roses are gorgeous and the blue and white vase and dishes are perfect!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Lynn @The Vintage Nest said...

Simple and elegant! Love the white plates with the chargers.

doreen@househoneys said...

At first I thought the burlap cloth was going to steal my heart, then I saw the plaid napkins, then the leopard ribbon (I know, very different but that's me!), then your MIL'S silver, then the woven mats. Geezzzz Louise, I don't know where to look first!

Anyone can make a table look pretty by heading out to their local HomeGoods (or as in my recent attempt, Pier One), but it takes talent and creativity to pull this off, and yes, it's definitely more fun and fulfilling. Not to mention easier on the wallet.

(I found you on Housepitality and as soon as I saw your 'rustic elegance' post I needed to stop by. We live in a log cabin. Nuf' said).

The Refeathered Roost said...

The pops of orange and blues are wonderful, Martina. Your table looks so festive and inviting.

ANNE said...

What a gorgeous table! I love all the colours you've used and the wicker chargers together with all the white and rustic elements.

Just lovely...

Suzanne said...

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Such a pretty Fall table, Martina! I love the pumpkins, pinecones and those plaid napkins are great. All those things just say Fall to me, so I think you've captured it perfectly.

Dixie Delights said...

Martina - all of the textures and colors are just perfect. I especially love the blue and white with the orange. Just lovely!

Looks beautiful!
Love those gorgeous fall colors.
Thanks for sharing.
Hope to see you on my blog :)

Miss Kitty said...

Hi Martina! This is a great Thanksgiving table setting! I love orange and blue together (part of that comes from being an Auburn fan). Is your MIL's silverware pattern "Buttercup"? I think that was my mother's pattern but most of it has been lost over the years. You are lucky to have a nice set of it.

Sarah said...

Martina, your table is lovely. I love the blue plates you found and the details on your table. The chargers, the textures of the linens, and the pretty roses are wonderful details.
