Fall has come and that means my annual Thanksgiving Dinner at the Farm! It was a beautiful, cool day spent with lots of laughter and food. I had so much fun decorating my table, the kid’s area, and bar for a Rustic Thanksgiving! My favorite part of hosting is scheming my tablescape and making everything look pretty. To start out I wanted a lighter color scheme than last year. My flower arrangements last year were rich and more styled and I loved it so much. But this year I wanted a more airy farm vibe. For my table cloth I just went to the fabric store and bought a yellow and white gingham pattern and cut it up to lay across the table. I love layering tableware and my silver chargers were a find at Scotts Antique market which is my go to for unique and rustic finds. My plates and tea cups are Woodland Spode which I feel perfectly tie in a farm house feel to my table. I decided to use the same napkins as last year but this time flipping them over for a cleaner look and added the napkin rings from Huff Harrington. I love any chance to use my silver; after all, the more you use it the prettier it gets.
Who doesn’t love a great charcuterie board? I spiced mine up a bit while using almonds dipped in chocolate with sprinkles on top to look like cute acorns! My guests adore the little special touches. Candied bacon will always be the biggest hit you can add to your board. Check out this post I did in the Spring on building a yummy board; I also added my candied bacon recipe. Since this Thanksgiving was a bit cooler this year I decided to add Hot Apple Cider to the menu. I visited Holeman & Finch Bottle Shop and the manager helped pick out the perfect wines and liquors to go along with the cider. This was such a big hit with the family so I’m going to do a special post very soon all about it so stay tuned!
Now on to the kids! Let me tell you how much they loved sitting at the miniature tables! I love the idea of being able to set my 19-month down to eat and not having to worry about her falling off the chair. Plus, it brings a more comfortable feeling to the family dinner. They sat all together the whole time while eating so much. I used these same tables for Liv’s boho themed party back in April, so check that post out here. I bought another fabric to help dress the table up while coordinating with the larger table. The rest of the throws and pillows I used to cozy this section up is from HomeGoods. I LOVE Homegoods!
