Now back to the Thanksgiving tabletop.
I am not a fan of tablecloths with pumpkins and turkeys, or acorn napkin rings, and gourds for centerpieces, because it is so seasonal and after One Day/ Thanksgiving, then what are you going to do with it, it becomes non functional.
But, I couldn't resist these pumpkin mini-turneen's. So GREAT!
So, I take the colors of fall and buy functional items that I can use throughout year, this way it saves on time and money.
Wondering what I got?
3 LCD flame less lights in a orange/reddish color--the taller candles where originally $29.99 got them for 14.99
Instead of those acorn or golden leaf napkin rings, I bought dark bamboo napkin rings originally, 3.95 to 1.99
I got the gold tone tablecloth originally 44.99 for 8.99
I also bought gold tone chargers 4 for 10.00 so I always do a service for 8 so two of those and it came up to 24.00
I know lot's of gold tone's so to break it up I bought dark bamboo place mats that would bring out the gold tone's those were 5.95
Every table needs light so I bought silver and gold tone votive for 4.95 that I put around my centerpiece.
I had a choice of runners one of which is Sangria tone and a Bamboo runner, the bamboo will compliment everything. I also bought an authentic bamboo runner, both are functional throughout the different seasons.
OK, my centerpiece-- remember a while ago when I bought the glass bowl for a Spring Gratitude Brunch, hello!
Put some rocks around the LCD Sangria color lights in the bowl, with my the votives all around the centerpiece.
|Thanks Create and Barrel, Kohl's, William Sonoma, etc.|
The only thing that was a bank breaker were the Waterford Marquis White Wine glasses, which were 39.95 for 4 each directly from Waterford, those can be used all throughout the year as well.
Table setting's DONE! Here are the results...
