Well if you haven’t toured Our Home, let me tell you, I love blue, Ikat and animal prints. So I wanted to incorporate blue into my Thanksgiving table setting.
Here I used my blue-rimmed everyday china layered on top with my hunting dogs Spode china. I used heirloom, gold-rimmed glasses with a blue placemat holding everything together. Excuse the lack of flatware, but I ordered a gold-colored stainless that has not yet arrived.
For table decorations, I used small white pumpkins, small white votives, and a blue and white floral arrangement.
I spray painted some leaves in the yard to be used as place cards. I wrote names in Sharpie.
For the floral arrangement:
I used 3 blue hydrangeas, a bunch of white roses, purple-blue irises, and green hypericum. I started with the hydrangea. I stood the hydrangea next to the vase I was using to see where to cut. I placed these in first to anchor the arrangement. Next I cut the roses the same way and filled in between the hydrangeas. I continued onto the hypericum, doing the same as the roses. For the irises, I trimmed a little taller than the vase, and poked them in all around the arrangement.
I loved these tips on staying sane when hosting Thanksgiving.
