I love celebrating special occasions by taking things to another level; doing things I may not normally do on a regular day. For instance, adding special touches to my dining table for when my friends and family come over. My Thanksgiving Tablescape has a decidedly “rustic hipster” vibe to it. Once I decided on the theme, it was easy to put everything together.
This is a sponsored post for Harvest Stone Crackers. They asked me to share a preview of my Thanksgiving Tablescape.
Here a few tips on how to plan before putting together your tablescape:
- Think about the theme you want to have
This will help you narrow down colours, materials, accessories, etc.
- Consider types of foods you’ll be serving
Will you need soup bowls, salad plates, gravy boats?
- Decide if you want to showcase treasured family pieces
If you choose to, you can easily add small nick-nacks to your tablescape. Or maybe you have fabric or material that you’d like to bring out. Think about ways you can use these items on your table.
How I put together my Thanksgiving Tablescape
I knew I wasn’t going to be serving soup for Thanksgiving, so I used a handmade soup tureen I have (which has that “rustic hipster” vibe to it), and added a small arrangement to the centre. You can find these holiday-themed arrangements at craft stores or florists, but you can also create your own, with a floral sponge and some fake or dried flowers. I love the addition of the fake pumpkin in this arrangement!
I used a linen tablecloth to cover my dining table and layered a couple plates in different colours/patterns. I love fabric napkins (which I use every day), so I included one at each place setting. The colours within the napkins are rustic fall colours: mustard yellow, brown, and a hint of faded blue.
I like having my friends and family come over at least an hour before dinner so that we can chat and relax. Because of this, I set out Harvest Stone Crackers to snack on. I whipped up my recipe for Tahini Lemon Dip to go with the crackers. I placed these items on a round cheese board. While there are many delicious flavours of both Harvest Stone Crackers and Harvest Stone Crispy Mix, I chose to set out both Toasted Sesame and Original flavours of the crackers.
These Harvest Stone Crackers are perfect to serve for Thanksgiving since they’re gluten-free, kosher, USDA organic, and made of whole grains like California rice and sesame seeds.
