Thanksgiving Guest Post: Honey We're Home

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!!


  1. That is so pretty! I may have to go on the hunt for that table runner today.


  2. Michelle,
    Thanks for featuring Megan!
    It looks awesome! I love the addition of the runner.

  3. As always Megan does not disappointed with her put together style! I love the spray painted pumpkins, what a fun addition!

  4. I love it. So different with the blue but still scream stylish Thanksgiving!
    Great job!

  5. Looks great, girl. Love the runner with the gold pumpkins.Maybe gold chargers?

  6. Love the table, Megan! I told my grandma we need to spray paint some pumpkins metallic this year because one of my favorite bloggers did it (: Thanks for featuring this, Michelle!

  7. Love the addition of the runner! You can find multiple shades of chargers at Michaels...i went with a rose gold. Your pumpkins look great...which gold spray did you use?

  8. Love this idea.

    The oranges, browns and reds every year for 'Thanksgiving Decor' start to seem a little blinding. The blue is definitely a 'refreshment' :)

  9. Love the table, Megan! And my favorite is that it is different than the usual fall-colors, but is still totally fall-ish!


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear what you think. I ♥ comments.
