Turkey Day is almost here! I’m totally up to my eyeballs in things to do to get ready, but at least the table is officially done!
We actually built & stained the table & bench ourselves, (using these tutorials- table –bench) as well as painted & reupholstered the chairs. It was our first ever project like this & we know it needs some work, so please don’t judge too hard!
Anyway, here’s the final product all fancied up for her Thanksgiving dinner debut!
You can see how I made the plates with Dollar Tree plates in this post here.
I used a long piece of burlap ribbon as my table runner for texture.
My centerpiece is a hurricane from Michael’s sitting on a log slice from my stash & surrounded with some gorgeous foliage from Hobby Lobby.
My family isn’t really used to eating Thanksgiving dinner on real plates, if you know what I mean. So I didn’t want to fancy things up too much. I dressed it down & added some color & warmth with the napkins.
I bought a couple yards of plaid flannel in fall colors at Joann’s & cut them into napkin-like pieces. Then I pulled at the threads to create a frayed edge. They’ll be a breeze to throw into the washer later.
I used a collection of glasses from the antique store & thrift store.
Most everything, décor-wise, is from Hobby Lobby or Target, my 2 fave places!
Those little acorn shakers came from Target, of course.
The centerpiece has to be my favorite part of the table though.
I simply cannot wait to have everyone over to sit around this table in a few days!
What are your Thanksgiving plans?!
