While a part of me tells me I should be prepping for Amazon Prime Day the other part just wants to share my Thanksgiving Table. Plus truth be told I have not masterd the whole prime deal and sharing so a table it is. Today I am sharing my Thanksgiving tablescape. A Fall Table with Burlap accents.

Fall Tablescape and Burlap
I think this is the first time I have ever shared a table without a tablecloth. What is happening to me. Trying to play around with natural products and colours. Letting the beauty of a wood table shine through. No don’t get too excited the table is not a craftsmen table or a work of art, just one that means something to me.
A warm Oak colour that sets off the beauty of all that is Fall. I added a Burlap table runner and a pretty plaid charger set to create my base. Are you a tablecloth or a charger hostess? I am usually both together, finding a table cloth and accent chargers give me a palette to work with.
Little tip you can pick up a burlap runner with a lace accent, or you can actually order a plain burlap runner and add embellishments yourself. 12 yards for ony $24.00 can create a lot of fun table runners.
Table Accents and Fun Plates
For my actual dishes I grabbed the aqua plates I had picked up at Home Sense a few years ago, you may remember my Frozen Tablescape. If Not well how about a quick link back to check it out. They created a beautiful balance to the orange and browns. Plus I am totall hooked on Aqua for Fall this year ( stay tune for some quick prints I made).
Adding in the pretty Leaf Plates (similar) I had picked up at the Christmas Tree Shoppe. I miss that store, oops before you panic it still exists just not in Canada. And we are stuck on this side of the border still. The plates are so very Fall that one cannot help but feel the seasonal ambiance.
Silverware is my standard Oneida Juliard that I received many year ago. I debated using Nan’s silverware but this year seemed to call for a simply table. Well simple for me.
Fall Centrepiece with a cloche
The centrepiece called for something that fit with a more natural theme. Starting with the base I pulled out my wood slab tray and added a few pumpkins. Covering them with my cloche seemed the perfect way to complete the look.
Sadly I had to use pumpkins from my inventory as the velvet ones were sold out everywhere. Who would have thought a cute velvet pumpkin would be so hard to find. Next year I will start looking in July.
A few floral pumpkins, wine bottle candle holders and my wine barrel candleholders were added. Natural accents and items from around my house helped create this years theme table. Honestly the wine bottles as candle holders have been a recurring theme but ah so perfect right?
Glassware and Cooper Drink Holders
I always add wine glasses champagne flutes and water glasses but this year I went Cooper. Yep you heard that correctly. I had picked up a few cooper glasses at the Cooperhouse in Yellowknife last year. They were on the barcart yet never used.
Crazy, I added them becuase they made a statement but when I filled them with water I was amazed. Cooper keeps your drink so cold. Darn guess I’ll start using these and my moscow mule cups a lot more frequently.
Natural Place cards
Place cards are a staple on my table as are napkin folds. What was I going to do this year. I had picked up the perfect paid napkins and a small bag of mini wood slabs at Hobby Lobby last year. The napins perfectly matched my chargers so they were a must.
I tried out several different napkin folds but ended up with a plain rectangle fold. Wrapped in a bit of burlap and tied with jute it seemed the perfect accent. Placing the wood slabs around the table I was inspired, a little bit of chalk and they could become my place cards. And best of all recycleable/re-useable
