Three Thanksgiving Tables

We had Thanksgiving this year at my aunt and uncle’s house with 26 people. It was a big crowd so we needed three tables for dinner and I had the fun pleasure of decorating the tables. The first table featured velvet leaves and fruit, the second had more elegant natural elements, and the kids table had playful bright leaves and pumpkins. I loved that each one had its own unique feel but they all went together. They were the perfect warm backdrops for a plate piled high with corn pudding, stuffing, sweet potatoes, and turkey.

I also have to thank my cousins Tori and Mimi for helping and my mom for always having so many craft supplies around. I love that this is a whole family holiday from the table to the desserts!

Easter Basket Tablescape

Ok, I don’t like using the word tablescape. Reminds me too much of Sandra Lee. But still, I had so much fun creating this dessert table for Easter. Most everyone who got an Easter “basket” was between 15 and 30 years old, but it was still a cute way to send everyone back (to college or DC) with some sweets. I separated the colorful candies into different glass bowls and printed garden “stakes” with their names on them. Of course, the dyed eggs were the center of it all. I’d love to get the chance to do more things like this more often! Check out the photos below.
