Shop Local and Include Family Heirlooms to Make Your Thanksgiving Table Spread Truly Special

Fall is one of my favorite times of the year! Pumpkin pie, apple cider, stuffing and my mom’s apple dumplings are some of the best things about this season. But the main reason I love fall is family! There are so many reasons to get together with the ones we love most to eat, drink and be thankful! 

For our Thanksgiving spread this year, we deviated from the expected browns, oranges and yellows and opted for elegant hues of gold, coupled with a rustic chic twist and accents of ivory. 

We rented the farm table and benches from Loane Bros. The bohemian table runner is from Pier 1, while the Flowers & Fancies centerpiece flanked with weathered gold candle holders are from Crate & Barrel. The settings include Monique Lhuillier for Pottery Barn Melrose rose gold chargers, Crate & Barrel “Thankful” salad plates and Monique Lhuillier for Pottery Barn Marlowe rose gold utensils.

When planning your holiday spread, consider mixing it up with an elegant combination of luxury, DIY and less expensive decor options. A thoughtful touch would be to also add family heirlooms or vintage pieces into your tablescape. Don’t forget to shop local, visit antique shops and to dig deep into your own items to pull together a sophisticated holiday display that will have your family and friends raving about your creativity!
