Stunning Vignettes Blog Hop–Bright Tablescape

Hey, everyone! I’m thrilled to be joining the talented bunch of ladies from Thoughts of Home to share a Thanksgiving vignette with you. It was so kind of Laura, Jemma, Stacey, and Laura to invite me to participate, especially considering how I am with the holiday decorating around here. #notsomuch

Since I don’t much care for fall colors, I decided to build my tablescape around these green goblets I found at the thrift store. (Don’t tell Michael–he’ll throw them in the trash, even though they’ve been sanitized in the dishwasher.)

Snazzy, right? I found a set of deep plum plates at IKEA, bought some ribbon from Wal-Mart and then dug around here to gather everything else.

I’ve been waiting to trot out the monogrammed napkins for quite some time now. I had them made for the original porch reveal, but they weren’t ready in time so I had to carry on without them. Three months later, here they are.

I tried to give a little nod to autumn by selecting bouquets from Trader Joe’s with some orange in them. There’s sunflowers, too, but that’s about as autumnal as it gets around here. We prefer to move from straight from Halloween to Christmas.

I felt like the linens were a little plain considering the amount of color from the glassware and flowers, so I added some ribbon to the table. It’s an affordable fix and if your guests aren’t messy, you can reuse the ribbons to wrap gifts. (Is that bad?)

I didn’t do too much with our little buffet other than add some sunflowers in a vase and put some apples in the silver bowl. The Pellegrino came out for the photo shoot, of course.

In case you are wondering, yes, I did iron the napkins, but that was a few months ago. They’re linen and wrinkle like crazy, but that’s part of their charm. I did drag out my favorite steamer and gave it the old college try, but the wrinkles weren’t budging.

Call the blog police! That is one wrinkly napkin.

I always let the family dine at the table once I finish taking my pictures. What glamorous meal did I serve on such a lovely table? Beef stew, which both girls proceeded to dump all over the chargers and linens. Because I know how we roll, no monogrammed napkins were harmed during the feeding of my family.

    1. Thank you, Mary Alice! It’s always fun to figure out what colors and patterns I can add to my existing dinnerware to create a new look. I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks so much for stopping by!

    1. Thank you, Tammy! The goblets are so much fun and will get used a lot in the next couple of months. I love finding surprises at the thrift store. Thanks so much for stopping by!

    1. Thank you, Maria! I’m a terrible blogger and am much better at decorating for people instead. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  1. I love your table, gorgeous colors! That’s how we roll too, each time I set a table for the blog and pictures are taken, we immediately use it for whatever meal we’re serving. 🙂

    1. Hi, Christina! Glad to hear I’m not the only one. It seems a shame to break the table down right away rather than enjoy it, even if it’s not for a fancy meal. The kids always ask if the photos are all done before they start eating, which is considerate and upsetting all at the same time. Ahh, blogging!

    1. Thank you, Sheila! You never know what you’ll find at the thrift store and I try to pop in at least a couple times a month. I enjoyed being on the tour with you and hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  2. Beautiful tablescape Sharon. One never knows what we can find at the thrift store. The goblets are a show stopper for sure. love your chosen colors. One said, everything has to a certain color for Thanksgiving. Your sense of humor is fun! I am not calling the blog police, because a napkin is wrinkled. Life is too darn short to worry about trivial things. a please to join you on this fabulous Blog Hop.

    1. Hi, Linda! Thank you for your kind words about my tablescape. I’ve enjoyed meeting so many new ladies on this tour–it’s truly been a pleasure. I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  3. A stunningly gorgeous table! I love the pairing of evergreen and plum, along with the layered plates and monogrammed napkins. Just beautiful!
    Delighted to meet you on the Thanksgiving tour!

    1. So nice to meet you, too! I was hoping for some deeper colored plum flowers but the store didn’t have any. I saw some gorgeous deep plum calla lilies at the store yesterday (of course!). Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  4. Hi — Your table is gorgeous! Think there always has to be inventive people who don’t use the “colors” of a certain holiday and you’ve done a lovely vignette.

    In case you were really worried about those napkins, a simple solution is to take them to your local cleaners where for under $10 (probably) they’d have simply ironed them for you. I never try to iron the cloth napkins I’ve got – way too much trouble when the cleaners does them for me and their ready to store or use right away.

    1. Hi, Margaret! I wish I’d thought about taking them to the cleaners. I’ve dropped off tablecloths before but always think I can manage the napkins because they’re small, but the industrial irons are much better at getting the wrinkles out. I so appreciate you stopping by and hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  5. Sharon, I’m in total love with your tablescape and the colors you used. The green goblets are gorgeous! (say that three times fast) The bright flowers and that little detail of the striped ribbon are beautiful together!

    1. Hi, Lisa! Thank you for your kind words. The green goblets make me so happy and I love how they’ll work with so many different colored tablescapes. Hoping to set a similar table for Thanksgiving if the weather stays as warm as it’s been here. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks so much for stopping by!

  6. Good Morning Sharon,
    You had me at green goblets! What a fabulous and refreshing Thanksgiving table.
    We will have some youngsters at our table too and I always use “fancy,” paper napkins and feel so awful for doing so. But I think you have given me permission to do so without guilt!
    Lovely to meet you and what a joy it is to have with us.
    Happy Thanksgiving,

    1. Hi, Jemma! My girls are too messy to have the nice napkins. Last year I did a tablescape with navy napkins and that was a much safer bet. 😉 Thank you so much for hosting this event–I truly enjoyed seeing what the other ladies created and had a wonderful time!

  7. Sharon your pairing of green and plum is pure perfection! I totally would have put those glasses in my thrift store cart too.

    It is so wonderful that your family benefits from your creativity. I too let my family “have at it” once I am done. 🙂

    Thank you so much for joining the Thoughts of Home Stunning Thanksgiving Vignettes tour.

    1. Thank you so much for including me, Laura! I’ve enjoyed seeing all the impressive vignettes the ladies have put together and truly enjoyed meeting so many new-to-me bloggers. You and the other hostesses did a wonderful job putting the event together–thank you!

    1. Thanks, Rhonda! They were kind of pricey for the thrift store at $3.00 a glass, but I couldn’t leave them behind. They add so much color and go with nearly every season. So nice to participate in the tour with you!

    1. Hi, Rhoda! My house doesn’t lend itself to traditional autumn colors, so I don’t even try. The family is used to my lack of seasonal decor and get excited for Christmas when I put forth a little more effort. 😉

    1. Thank you! Green and gold is one of my favorite combinations. The glasses will be in heavy rotation at Christmas! So nice to participate in the hop with you and the other talented ladies!

    1. Thanks, Janet! Kind of wishing I did a block monogram but maybe I’ll add those to my Christmas list. A girl can never have too many monogrammed napkins!

  8. Your table is gorgeous Sharon, I LOVE the color! I am really enjoying seeing non traditional Thanksgiving tables this year, brown and orange is so over 🙂 As for ironing, I seem to always make everything worse, so I don’t even attempt- I do love those napkins, I’m glad you saved them from the stew!

    1. Hi, Jenna! These napkins wrinkle under the slightest humidity and it was extremely warm in Dallas when I took the photos. It was a losing battle even if I’d ironed them again! Brown and orange makes me a little sad, so I’m glad you like the bright colors, even if it looks nothing like a Thanksgiving table. So nice to meet you! 🙂

  9. Sharon, the colors on this table are magical! I love the green goblets mixed with the sparkling gold pieces. The flowers are perfect.

    You are so talented and I love that I usually get a laugh when I come here. 🙂

    Thanks so much for joining us this week.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words and for inviting me to join in the hop! I truly enjoyed myself and especially liked getting to meet new-to-me bloggers. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  10. Sharon- your table is beautiful and if I had been in that thrift store and seen those green goblets we would probably end up on the floor wrestling for them!
    Thank you so much for joining us for our blog hop.
    What at treat for us all.

    1. Thank you so much for hosting this event, Laura! I’m enjoying seeing what all the creative ladies have come up with and have met so many new-to-me blogs. You and the other ladies did a wonderful job hosting–thank you!

  11. Beautiful tablescape Sharon, you had me laughing at keeping your napkins safe from your eating family. I do the same thing, it seems like they just don’t wash well anymore, so they don’t last. The goblets you found were a great find at the thrift store, they look perfect on your table. Happy to be joining you in the Thanksgiving Blog Hop. Have a great day!

    1. Hi, Christine! Yes, I have a hard time keeping the 100% fabrics clean. My cotton/poly blend table linens seem to hold up much better than the all cotton/linen. It was nice to join the blog hop with you, too!
