Gold Thanksgiving Tablescape

This year’s Thanksgiving Tablescape was inspired by the china.  The china is white & gold, so I let it dictate the rest of the tablescape.  It’s simple & I really like the way it all came together.  I hope you like it.

Have a Blessed Thanksgiving everyone.

I started with some gold fabric as an underlay.  It’s actually a fabric that is made for dance costumes.  It stretches & doesn’t fray.

Then I added a white lace table cloth over the gold.  I brought in more gold by using gold chargers.

And then I added the gold & white china.

Gold & White China Place Setting

I used white linen napkins that are edged in gold, and a silver napkin ring that has a gold bow.

I added gold rimmed glasses and my mother’s flatware.   (I was too tired to polish the silver)

And then white & gold turkey candle holders.

At each place setting, I added a card that says, “I’m Thankful For Our Family”.  Inside each card is a special message for my family, from me. They were made of white card stock & the lettering was done with a gold Sharpie.
