Like I mentioned yesterday, I am sharing Thanksgiving table setting ideas this week. Today's table is my own nature inspired table setting. I used things I was given, already had, and found in nature to create this look.
My favorite thing about this table setting is the cotton centerpiece I arranged in an Anthropologie vase! I have my dad to thank for the cotton!
The candle holders are reclaimed mattress springs from an old mattress my grandparents had. Thanks Monnie and Papa for giving me a few of the springs! I love the rustic industrial touch they add to the table.
To dress up the simple glasses I tied some acorns around the base with twine.
For the two end seats I decided to make the place mats out of magnolia leaves. I cut a circle out of cardboard and hot glued the leaves so they would overlap in a circle.
I continued the magnolia leaves down the center of the table in a trail to the centerpiece.
The grapevine wreath is recycled from my wedding and works perfectly around the cake stand.
These chair covers are a recent DIY project that I made from a drop cloth. They were really simple to make. I started by cutting the pieces that cover the backs of the chairs. Next I draped the cut pieces over the chair backs and adjusted until I had the correct length. I then hemmed the edges and added hemmed drop cloth stripes on either side to tie the sides together around the chair.
How are you decorating for Thanksgiving?
