Thanksgiving decor

I finished a client's Thanksgiving table tonight and in my haste completely forgot to take my camera along. I really wanted to share how it turned out so I grabbed a few photos quickly with my phone.


I started with a shopping trip to Target and HomeGoods ...


I purchased a 'hotel' crisp white tablecloth from Target and a table pad to go underneath to protect their table. The napkins I found at HomeGoods, and I picked up an assortment of candles from both stores. When I purchase candles to be used for dining I make sure I get unscented candles. These cream color pillars (below) were from Target.


The gold leaf candles (HomeGoods) were only $1 each. I like the little bit of glitter that the acorn ornaments add.


The amber colored hurricanes and votive candle holders were also from Target.  I used the small candle holders ($1.99 each) as vases. The roses came from my local grocery store. I purchased five bunches of three different colors of roses and mixed them together.


The photos don't do it justice - but I am thrilled with the way the table turned out.

Beautiful table. My favorite part of Thanksgiving preparations are setting the table and arranging flowers. Thanks for the inspiration.
