Thanksgiving Table Ideas
So Halloween is just over but everything has switched to Christmas in the stores and on TV.¬† I am all for getting ready for Christmas early, as longs we don‚Äôt forget about Thanksgiving in the middle.¬† And Lindsay, from The White Buffalo Styling Co. has pulled together a Thanksgiving tour to make sure that we don‚Äôt!¬† As part of Lindsay‚Äôs fun tour, I am sharing some new favorite Thanksgiving table ideas.¬† If you are joining me from The Chronicles of Home, welcome, and thank you for stopping by. When I set out to create this tablescape, I knew I wanted flowers to be the focus, but I wanted it to be something different.¬† Truthfully, I am so over myself at this point in the year with hydrangea.¬† In my mind, I pictured something bright and bold.¬† Not too far from here is a wholesaler shop that I have an account with for my design business.¬† I was going there anyway, so I thought I would check out their flower selection. The store is divided into two areas, one being flowers and one being everything else.¬† After I finished up on the non-flower side (and I may have accidently bought the prettiest Christmas tree you ever did see!), I headed over to the flowers.¬† I quickly realized I was a fish out of water.¬† Everyone was hurriedly moving about, knowing where they were going.¬† And they were all going inside these huge refrigerator rooms with these giant metal doors.¬† Was I allowed to even go in there? After my first attempt for help was not well received, I was pointed in the direction of someone who gave me very clear and concise directions on what to do.¬† And I understood none of it.¬† I knew there were four rooms.¬† I had no idea how to get to any of them. After a first failed attempt lead me to a loading dock, I found a big scary door that was clearly marked ‚ÄúRefrigerator 1‚Äù.¬† Okay, even I could understand that.¬† I went in sure I would understand what to do once I got inside. Instead, I found myself self-consciously picking up several batches of flowers and then circling back and putting them back down.¬† I did a full circle and I was almost ready to admit defeat and just pick some carnations, when I saw the thistle. ¬†My vision of bright and colorful quickly faded away and I saw beautiful purply-blues and greens mixed with bright whites and browns. It was love at first site.¬† I scooped up a few more items with authority and confidence.¬† Please don‚Äôt ask me what the rest of them are ‚Äì I have absolutely no idea.¬† They were just the pretty things that caught my eye. As I brought my bouquet up to the checkout, I was greeted with a ‚Äúmy, you made some beautiful choices.‚Äù¬† My guess is, it was sympathy for how clueless I was, but I figured she saw professional florists all day long, so I was going to take it!
