Set a refined Thanksgiving table in blue and brown with Grandmillennial vibes using Evesham dishes, Schumacher Sunnyside Vine, and antique heirlooms

Comfort and ease abide here

where company gathers with grateful hearts.

Hands clasped. Prayers offered. Stories unfold.

We relax into this moment of love and care.

Sage and turkey entice.

We set the table.

We arrange the flowers.

We use the linen and china

for each little gesture takes thought and care.

We nourish our souls while gracing here!

Planning a tablescape and setting the table is one of my favorite creative outlets. But I also happen to think it's rather important too. The table is where manners are learned. Where gratitude is practiced. We give thanks to the providers of our food. We give thanks to the hands that made it. And He who nourishes us all.

The dinner table is where civility is so often born. It is the place of stories and jokes. We learn to converse here. To wait our turn here. And to be a family here.

Not every meal holds this guarantee, but the promise is there especially at Thanksgiving...

If we create a beautiful thoughtful atmosphere that promise can flourish.

So set the table. Arrange the flowers. And use the linen and china!

Here is inspiration for your Thanksgiving feast...

My Recipe for a Grandmillennial Thanksgiving Table:

A Layer of Enticing Linen

Brown and blue Sunnyside Vine from Schumacher graces this tablescape for Thanksgiving

Don't underestimate the power of the right tablecloth to set the mood and tone of your Thanksgiving tablescape. Here a rich palette of blue, taupe, and brown create an elegant look that feels autumnal.

This is a vintage Schumacher fabric called Sunnyside Vine.

A Dose of Lush China

Evesham from Royal Worcester is a classic pattern. The lush fruits and delicate leaves give this holiday table that feeling of abundance and refinement.

A Tasteful Dollop of Whimsy

fabric acorns in blue tapestry fabrics add a touch of whimsy to the Thanksgiving tablescape

Even if your Thanksgiving feast is more formal with a sophisticated table setting, don't forgo a touch of whimsy and sass. These darling fabric acorns on either side of the bowl full of flowers are a dollop of cuteness.

I found these at the Biltmore gift shop last year!

A Sprinkle of Heirlooms

Crystal glasses, silver candelabra, and Wedgwood add a touch of refinement and history to the tablescape

Give your table a sense of history using heirlooms and antiques like crystal glassware, silver candlesticks, and vintage ceramics.

A Dash of Rustic Elegance

Use a textured, woodsy element like these rattan chargers from Pottery Barn. There is just something about a Thanksgiving table that begs a note of rustic. Maybe it's the turning of the leaves, the harvest, or the charm of the woodlands...

May comfort and ease abide where your company gathers with grateful hearts this holiday season!
