Inspiration: a woodland tablescape








As promised here, I wanted to share my Thanksgiving tablescape. This is a big deal for me because it's the first time I break in my china, serving platters and created something out of the months I've been pinning images on Pinterest. See...all those hours you spend on there really do amount to some amazing outcomes!

Instead of the proverbial turkey and pilgrim theme...I wanted to elevate the table into something more sophisticated. I was inspired by the woodland theme that seem so big in fashion and decor. I carried it through with the runner and napkins. And let's face it, I wouldn't be a good hostess without some sort of woodland favor for my guests.

All in all, I am pleased with the outcome. It was a fun project and one that I can snag elements from to create my Christmas brunch tablescape. And the flowers...those arrived yesterday from my grandma. She is indeed the sweetest!
