Tablescapes, Rustic & Gold Friendsgiving

In the US, Thanksgiving is a very special holiday,

full of family traditions…

It’s all about the food and the table!

Have you planned your menu and set your table?

Our menu is still in the planning stage, but I have set the table

for Celebrate & Decorate’s Thanksgiving Tablescape Blog Hop!

 

 

Even if you’re not hosting, you can enjoy a variety of styles, tablescapes, and ideas for fall dining!

 

 

 

 

I will be having a casual Thanksgiving with my children and grands on the coast this year, with a fun Turkey Vase and Decorative Wine Bottles as part of our decor

But before I head South, I am going to have a Golden Rustic Friendsgiving in the city

 

 

Thanksgiving tables to me should be a little formal, a little rustic, a little traditional and a little fun

 

 

 

 

Room for lots of food, and room for lingering when you’re done

 

 

 

 

A nod to the season with pumpkins and gourds

 

 

 

 

Plus some unexpected elements so you don’t get bored

 

 

 

 

Like a twinkling tree on the sideboard

 

 

 

 

This rustic turkey ring sports a linen napkin tail

 

 

 

 

The table runner is a golden magnolia leaf trail

 

 

 

A turkey and Indian corn perch on each end

 

 

 

 

Celebrate friends like family, they are a Godsend

 

 

 

 

The traditional cornucopia spills out onto a Gold Glamour Tray

 

 

 

 

A Thanksgiving centerpiece done in a new modern way

 

 

 

 

What time do you prefer for dining?

we don’t like to eat while the sun is still shining

the lights look so pretty as it darkens in time

Any time around 5 suits us just fine

 

 

 

 

A glittery garland overhead decorates the chandy

 

 

 

It will work all through the holidays, isn’t that handy?

 

 

 

 

Thank you for joining us in our hop today

 

 

 

I hope your blessings are many on Thanksgiving Day!

 

 

 

Thank you Chloe for this holiday fun!

    So many fun and creative ideas for your Golden Rustic Friendsgiving table Jenna! I love the addition of the twinkling grapevine tree on your sideboard, linen turkey napkin tails and modern spin on a cornucopia centerpiece. Your chandy garland that makes the transition from Thanksgiving to Christmas is so festive and a great time saver. I’ll be thinking about you and wish you and your family a wonderful Thanksgiving at the coast this year. It’s always a pleasure to join at the table for a blog hop. ♥

    Great details, Jenna, and very creative script! I love the handy chandy. 😉 The colors on your table will certainly spark some fun conversation. I love the gold magnolia, and now you’ve got me wondering if I can somehow preserve some of my branches and spray paint them….onto google for the answer!
    Have a warm and cozy Thanksgiving with your kids and grands by the shore. I’ll be thinking of you, in hopes that your family memories will keep your heart happy rather than sad. ♥ I know it will be difficult at times.

    Jenna, your table is both beautiful and elegant! I love the white roses with pops of coral roses peeking out, and the modern cornucopia is stunning on the pretty tray. Your chandelier is gorgeous and the added sparkle is perfect. I hope that you and your family have a most blessed and Happy Thanksgiving!!!

  5. My primary requirement for a TG table is that it be “comfortable” (whatever that means to someone) because dinner a) takes a long time and b) no one ever seems to want to leave the table after, we just hang out and talk! All of these pass the comfort test — I’d like to be at any one of them!

  6. Beautiful, Jenna! I love the lights on the table, and your wonderful cornucopia. We like to eat at halftime of the afternoon football game!

  7. Jenna, I bet your English teachers adored you! You amaze me with your wit and humor and creativity. I have one of those wire turkeys and have never figured out a pleasing way to add color and use it. Thank you for the great idea.
    I like your formal, rustic and fun table. Friendsgiving is a new term for me but I like the idea.
    That is the most clever turkey in your plate with a lace napkin tail.
    Wishing you a great Thanksgiving.🦃

    • Thank you Bonnie! It was fun doing something non traditional for Thanksgiving, Friendsgiving is getting to be a big trend around here, gathering with good friends can be a lot less stressful than a formal family gathering 🙂

    Love your poetry Jenna….I have books and books of my poetry, some good some not so good, but they are personal for any crisis or happy time in my life. The cornucopia is lovely, spilling out all the goodies of your table. Your dinnertime is a good time for dinner. We some times eat at 3 ish so we can eat again later in the evening. That way we get to enjoy two meals. LOL Have a wonderful Thanksgiving my friend.

Dinner time for us is usually between 4-5 which is November is on it’s way to getting dark. I hope you have a fun holiday and enjoy both your dinners. This hop is great and I’m looking forward to the next one.

    Jenna, your Friendsgiving table is lovely — I especially like the gold magnolia leaves (not available here in PIttsburgh!). I wish we’d get a World Market here; those turkey napkin rings are adorable! I confess to what I loved best were the vases and bottles you painted — genius! They are fantastic; you should sell them in Etsy.

    • Thanks Debbee, I actually ordered from World Market on line, so you actually have one right at your finger tips! I had a lot of fun playing with the bottles, and have some holiday ones coming up! It’s been a fun hop hasn’t it!

  20. Jenna, I must say I am a little envious of the friends who place their feet uder this gorgeous table, not to mention that since your are the chef extraordinaire what they will be eating! You are the most clever at rhyming your script, that would take me forever. From the lighted grapevine tree to the adorned chandelier, you have created such a memorable table. The cornucopia spilling onto your glam tray is perfect. You hit all the bases dear friend for a rustic and glam tablescape. Wishing you a sweet Thanksgiving with your children and grands at the beach that HH loved so much. I will be thinking of you, you are a special lady that has shown remarkable grace!❤️
