This year for the Thanksgiving tablescape I departed from
a typical romantic/feminine decor style and opted for
a youthful and simple black and white scheme.
For the dinner table, I layered on
kraft paper (stenciled with a French Poem stencil
from Royal Designs), then a runner (made of giftwrap with
a crux motif), an antique bread board piled with boxwood,
clove studded clementines, candle holders from Sweden,
and white roses (I loved that our sophomore in college
helped me decorate the clementines just like I used to
do as a child with my adopted Swedish family).
I went for bold graphic statements including creating a different
quote at each placesetting…an idea inspired by a post by my
good blog friend Leslie of Gwen Moss.
Black posterboard, chalk, and a white paint pen are all you need
to create quick easy sentiments…also a great conversation
starter since guests can guess the author of the quotes.

And yes, a NEW tufted wool pom pom wreath I
created and added to the shop!
Next, I will be sharing images from a very special
holiday party we attended last weekend.
Peace to you right where you are.
