Gold Thanksgiving Tablescape

Gold Thanksgiving TablescapeGold Thanksgiving TablescapeThanksgiving is two weeks away (crazy!) and I couldn’t be more thrilled.

I definitely look forward to all of the lazy traditions we have as a family. We usually head to our family home is St. George, a city father south (and usually a few degrees warmer than Salt Lake!). We spend the long weekend, sleeping in, making Thanksgiving dinner, and Black Friday shopping our little hearts out! Call us crazy, but we even head into Las Vegas on Saturday to find even more deals. We’re a shopping family, what can I say. Do you guys join in on the Black Friday craziness at all? I think my husband has the right idea…he stays in bed and does all of his shopping online!

Either way, we always start out our shopping adventures with Thanksgiving dinner around the table as a family. It’s one of my husband’s favorite parts of the holiday and one that really brings everyone together.

If you happen to be hosting dinner this year, maybe even for the first time, I’m sharing a super easy way to decorate your table using basic items that you can find at your local craft store and grocery store!

This gold thanksgiving tablescape is the perfect combination of rustic and glam and is a cinch to put together!

Gold Thanksgiving TablescapeI created the centerpiece using a few basic items from my local grocery store and added my own little glam touch.

I chose to use gold flatware with my table, but you could easily switch them out with silver or copper flatware as well, whichever you have handy. Just one of the benefits of using mixed metallics for a tablescape!

Gold Thanksgiving TablescapeI love adding candles to a table. They add such a warm feeling to a table design and with other lights turned low, the candlelight dances off of other elements in the room.

Check out the blog later this week when I’ll be sharing a few easy DIY’s (including those place cards!) for this gold Thanksgiving tablescape.

Your table will be a winner with no stress and a minimal amount of your time putting all of the elements together, although it might look like you spent a lot more time than you actually did! Spend your time with the turkey instead! 😉

    This is stunning. Where did you get your gold forks/spoons/knives they are amazing. I loved your placemat and name tag diy tutorials. I will have to spray gold on some corn and paint some mini pumpkins white absolutely love this look for Thanksgiving. Where did you get your tablecloth too it’s hard finding nice color linen ones like this. Sorry so many questions its’ all so beautiful. Would love to create something similar for ours this year as it’s just us.

If you’re like me and trying to cross a few books off your list or just looking for a few ways to include a little more “thrill and chill” into your October, these are my picks for 12 spooky reads to add to your Halloween reading list
