I know Thanksgiving is just around the corner, but it is not too late to get creative with your tablescape. Here are a few inspirational finds to get you started.
I love this table setting from Southern Living. Mixing the rustic with the refined in this outdoor setting is so inviting. On a perfect fall day bring the good china out to create a table like this one. This simple centerpiece is made with a few floral stems and leaves from the yard. Simply arranged on a platter – just lovely!
One of my favorite magazine has been Victoria. The magazine was just getting its start as I was planning my wedding back in the late 80’s. I saved every issue for awhile because the photography was so beautiful and they had such a romantic feel. I one day had to part with them knowing I could not keep them forever. Here are some lovely Thanksgiving ideas from Victoria.
