Hello! It's Megan from Honey We're Home. Having been a fan and follower of Ten June for some time now, I’m really flattered that she invited me to guest post on her blog today:)
Thanksgiving always gets me thinking about the Thanksgiving table. This year, I was inspired by the image below to create a tablescape using a modern gold and blue palette, instead of my usual red and orange tones.
I began by giving some pumpkins a quick coat of metallic gold spray paint. Here they are before:
And here they are after, along with some pale blue placemats from Target and our wedding china.
I liked how it looked, but thought it needed a little more pizzaz, perhaps with some candles or fresh flowers. I ended up finding some glass candleholders and white candles at Hobby Lobby (50% off- yay!) and my friend Courtney (A Thoughtful Place) alerted me to a cloth runner at Cost Plus World Market. So this weekend, I changed the table to this:
I love the “oomph” this floral runner gives to the table with its pretty mix of colors, but now I’m thinking maybe I should add charger plates and/or a light blue tablecloth underneath?? This table continues to evolve... :) Hope it’s ready by Thanksgiving!!
Thanks for having me Michelle!!
