Blogger Stylin' Home Tours: Thanksgiving Tablescape 2015

One of my favorite weeks of the year is Blogger Stylin’ Home Tours and I’m so happy it’s hear! If you are stopping by from my sweet friend Cassie’s blog, Primitive and Proper, well welcome! I’m so glad you’re here!

For once –  and I mean one time only – I was ahead of the game and it felt SO good!I was really excited to create this fall centerpiece made with faux and real flowers and filled with cinnamon sticks! Aqua, turquoise, teal and really any shades of blue (except Duke blue) are my favorite colors so I made a point to incorporated them in where I could.

These monogram salad plates from Sasha Nicholas were the stars of the show! I came across these beautiful monograms at the BHG Stylemaker Celebration and I fell head over heels! I’ve never had a particular thing for nice dishes but that all went out the window once I met these beauties. I’m officially obsessed! They have so many unique font types and also carry these same plates with gold rims! Swoon!

And thanks to Eddie Ross’ wise teachings I hope I came close to mastering a little bit of modern mix! I paired these elegant salad plates with white Ikea dishes and thrifted gold chargers. I used turquoise candles in modern glass holders next to vintage brass salt and pepper shakers. Oh, and one of my favorite things are my paper napkins corralled by fancy gold napkin rings. The key here is to double up the napkins so they are more full and fluffy!

I mean my little Southern heart just skipped a beat when I opened up the box and laid my eyes on those amazing H’s!

And in case you were wondering, yes there are some photos here that were staged for various projects in the works but a real party did happen….that is until my sweet boy knocked his head into the window sill and I had to send everyone home and make a quick trip to urgent care for stiches :( That was definitely an interesting way to start Halloween! Don’t worry girls, we’ll do it again soon!

  1. What a beautiful tablescape – your centerpiece with the cinnamon sticks is so pretty and I had no idea those were faux flowers! I love the blue and gold color combination too, it’s fresh and festive, love it!

  2. Wow! Summer, this looks SO good! I’m loving the cooler colors. And those plates!! What flowers/branches did you use in your bouquet? I’m so bad with knowing what to get.


  3. Your celebration looked lovely, how striking are those plates and that floral arrangement?!?!? Sad to hear about your little guy, though, hope it wasn’t too painful. That sounds exactly like something that would happen in my home. We also spy something we’re excited to see very soon….eeek!
