Thanksgiving is a few days away as everyone prepares for house guests and food preparation. I wanted to share a quick, free, DIY printable table name cards that you can fill in the names, print, cut, and fold.
The warmer weather lately here in New England is just nice enough to keep me from realizing that Thanksgiving is less then a week away, how time flies. For those of you that have the tasking of hosting this upcoming holiday, I wanted to give you another simple fall tablescape that can easily be put together quickly and pretty inexpensively.
Here in New England the colors are in full swing as dark red, orange and bright yellow leaves fall delicately to the ground. Although I dread it getting colder, looking down roads lined with a multitude of vibrant colors makes me appreciate the coziness of fall. When creating the tablescape for this large, casual family dinner I decided to incorporate all the beautiful colors. By adding two kinds of branches from the yard, not only being free but made the table almost have a foliage runner effect.
A few friends came over for a casual dinner and games, and given the time of year, I decided to add a few extra fall touches. I love white pumpkins, they are so lovely and bright but still very fall so I opted for a cream and gold tablescape theme filled with a large, beautiful blue and white pumpkin and small white natural and ceramic pumpkins with some added gold touches. The menu was very easy to throw together for a Friday after work with minimal time in the kitchen. Some apple wine and a bourbon pecan tart finished the meal into game time. Here is the dinner break down from the fall inspired table decor to the menu.
