Here in Canada we celebrated Thanksgiving a few weekends ago. I’m excited to share the beautiful table that my sister and I put together this year, and to maybe inspire some of my American readers for their Thanksgiving.
My sister and her family spend the summers in beautiful cottage country, and having Thanksgiving there this year was so beautiful with all the changing leaves, that we decided to set the table outside.
We began our table with some wood slice chargers. My sweet brother-in-law went out into the woods for us, and cut some slices, than sanded them smooth. They came out beautifully. I love them, and they were the perfect foundation for our rustic Thanksgiving table -thanks Shaun.
My sister found some old antique silverware, and we left it tarnished for the perfect rustic look -I kind of wanted to sneak it into my suitcase when I left.
For an easy, fun place card we used a white paint pen to write everyone’s names on fall leaves.
My sister had some gold napkins, that worked great with the tarnished silverware.
We also used some pretty vintage amber goblets, love how they looked with the bittersweet.
For the centrepiece, we layered pumpkins, and candles on a piece of vintage lace. The candles were in clear glass vases, which was perfect for outside, so they didn’t blow out in the breeze.
My sister wound in some grapevine, and bittersweet -it was simple and so pretty.
Over the table, and between two trees, we strung up a pretty pine cone garland.
With a beautiful rustic, outdoor Thanksgiving table like this, life really is a party!
