Giving Thanks + Setting a Pretty Table

Fall 2010 076

Happy Thanksgiving, dear friends! As I reflect on what I am thankful for, all of my wonderful readers and your amazing outpouring of support for High Gloss immediately come to mind. I feel so blessed to be able to follow my dreams and to have so many incredibly supportive people cheering me on along the way. 

I am always striving to share more personal things with you all, so I thought I’d share a few snaps of my Thanksgiving table. I haven’t finished setting it just yet, but I am super excited about venturing outside of the typical Thanksgiving color scheme this year. It all started with these Pomegranate ikat placemats in pink, purple, and red that I ordered from One Kings Lane. I decided to build upon that theme, but wanted to pull in a bit of fall, so I added pink and orange roses (a la High Gloss) in my Moroccan tea glasses for an added ethnic flare to go with the ikat. The glittered pumpkins give it a much needed dose of fall, otherwise this table setting could have applied to any other occasion. I still need to add the rest of the glassware, silverware, napkins, and place cards, but you get the idea. I hope you all have a fabulous holiday and thank you again from the bottom of my heart for all of your support over the years!

The table looks fabulous. Love the color scheme and had to giggle because I almost ordered that same pattern on One Kings Lane. I loved that who series but I was so broke that week I just looked at it in my cart and had to remove it. UGH. Love the roses lined up. I decided to change it up too and did all green with field flowers and filler in mason jars. The dog - well you know I love my dog Ginger...couldn't be cuter and she has the same name tag in pink.
