Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends.
My goal this year for me was to set a very "natural" table. I wanted neutral colors and simplicity.
My daughter and I found a Magnolia tree close by and we took a drive with our clippers in hand. It was a blast and a memory with great laughter.
We found more than just magnolia leaves.
I had a brand new large tarp (bought from Lowes) that fits over 2 large tables.
It was the perfect texture and color for what I was looking for. We wanted everyone to be able to sit at one large table. All 21 of us fit perfectly. Now that we have teens, they would rather be with the adults.
I then placed black striped wrapping paper down the middle as my runner. I found the animal print pumpkins at Hobby Lobby for 80% off so I was thrilled.
The magnolia leaves were layered down the center and I added fresh pears for some color.
My husband bought me the plates for an anniversary present several years ago and I love them! I also layered cut aspen pieces amongst the magnolia leaves.
Time together around a table is priceless! Great conversation, good food and a beautiful table makes everyone happy!
This table could easily be duplicated for a Christmas table.
Just add some pomegranates and you are set!
