Happy In The Pink Thanksgiving Eve to my Canadian Friends and Happy Saturday to everyone else. It has been far to long since I shared a table with you. Actually Canada Day and Independence Day were the last two. It is Thanksgiving and I have yet to share a Fall Table let alone a Thanksgiving table. Today I started with a dream, a Pink Table and good lord next thing I knew I was back to a Pink and Teal Pumpkin Table.

For my centerpiece if you recall last year I was on the hunt for Pink pumpkins but alas I was too late, Michael’s was sold out. I ended up with two teal Pumpkins and then a strand of garland I thought would be pretty. I was content with the teal and thought it was a great accent to the china but I still longed for the pink table. Fast forward to this year and as soon as the pumpkins came out, bam, pink pumpkins in the basket.
I did love the teal and pink combo last year so this year was all about tweaking. The krylon painted pumpkins from last year still worked. Crazy that I dreamed of a pink pumpkin table all year and still went with a stronger teal presence. The tablecloth I purchased last Spring just seemed the perfect base, remember my Frozen Table? Well the cloth just keeps giving back. Totally worthwhile investment that I struggled over.
Wooden Chargers and a touch of Teal
Isn’t it crazy how the start of a theme can go sideways. My pink tablescape became teal and my pink chargers made way for these awesome wood style ones. I have had these chargers for two years and they have yet to be showcased on a tablescape. 2018 seems to be my teal or aqua year and I cannot say I am unhappy with that.
So when we were in NY I of course went to Hobby Lobby and found the cutest little wooden slaps. They were a bag of 12 and I couldn’t resist. With no concept of a craft or a need, it mattered not. I was sure I would find a use and guess what I did. Knife rests and place cards. How perfect is that? They also made the perfect backdrop for my rose napkins. ( a fold you can easily copy)
Key to a Fun Table for any Season
Anyone can throw a tablecloth on a table, grab some chargers and some flowers but how do you make it pop? The key to a great table is shopping your home for what you love and use the pieces. Think outside of the box but use things that make you smile. I love wine, so wine bottle candle holders work. Water bottles, especially Rae Dunn ones make me smile. grab pumpkins and spray paint. Wooden slaps for name cards and knife rests.
