I’m not sure how other families celebrate Thanksgiving, but one of the highlights is the tablescape. My designer uncle and florist friend tackle our Thanksgiving tablescape every year, and they are amazing. Half the fun of Thanksgiving is seeing how they out do themselves, and it becomes a thread in the conversation for the night. After a few years held with restraint (given the recession, it’s best not to be showy), they really out did themselves.
Such thoughtful care put into the details.
Do you notice that there aren’t any flowers in this display? Isn’t that fun? It’s all natural fruits and vegetables providing the myriad of textures and colors.
…adding in some final touches.
A master at work.
Candles lit, as the tablescape is almost done.
The glow of the water and wine bottles add a final texture and color to the tablescape. Tablescapes are meant to be thoughtful, creative and most importantly, fun. So next year assign a few friends the task of tablescape, give them a concept to work with and then let them have fun with it. It’s become such a great tradition for us.
