Thanksgiving Day Table Ideas

Thanksgiving is a time to gather around a table, be with the people who mean the most to you, and eat one of the best meals of the year. And while the food itself is very important, where everyone sits around deserves just as much attention. Regardless if you want to go all out or are just looking for something different, take a look at these table decorations and layouts to consider for this Thanksgiving day.

Consider continuing the fall season with chalk-painted pumpkins for a center to the table. Chalk paint is the perfect way of turning a pumpkin into something to be admired. You can simply use multiple colors to form a pattern, or put your own personal touch around the pumpkin to bring the table together.

Gold is trending in the decorating world. Whether it’s small accents or the main element, it’ll be sure to add beauty and elegance to your table.

For something a little different, consider embracing the calligraphy trend and put it as an element on the table. This table layout found in the popular store, Mangolia, is a great example of how one simple word can bring the table together.

Everyone loves the kids table, but sometimes it ends up just being a simple fold up card table. Where’s the fun in that? Try adding some decorative touches or even make the table something to write on to keep the kids entertained.

Springtime Celebration—DIY Ideas

Springtime Celebration—DIY Ideas

Did you know that March 20th was National Proposal Today? It’s also the first day of Spring! Between the two, we think some celebration is in order.  So whether you’re hosting Easter, planning a proposal to a special someone, or just looking to ring in the warmer weather, the DIY ideas below will make your springtime celebration unique and memorable.

National Proposal Day

Already engaged?  Pop the question—to your Person of Honor! Ask your best friend, your sister, whoever to be your Maid of Honor by planning an egg hunt for them.  Draw them a treasure map.  Along the path, fill plastic eggs with pretty slips of paper that share why this person is important to you (like, “you have been my best friend since we were 13 years old” or “I know I can always be my unedited self around you”).  At the end of the map, hide one last egg with a message asking them to be your Maid of Honor.  Be sure to be nearby at this point—with tissues!—to ask them in person.
