Thanksgiving Table Setting

by Dinah Wulf

I am so thankful for so many things this year.   My family, of course, is a big one.  I’m loving having a two-year-old right now.  I love that she is a sponge.  She takes in EVERYTHING and now that she’s talking a little more, it’s amazing to hear what comes out of her mouth in that sweet little voice.  We read books all the time because it’s one of her favorite things to do.  So, this year for a Thanksgiving dinner I’m having with some friends, I decided to do a book/reading theme for the table in honor of my little lady. So, here is my Thanksgiving Table Setting.

My table is so big that a normal table runner is too short so I ended up making my own runner by layering two tablecloths.  I made place cards with pine cones, a craft punch, and hand wrote each name with a sharpie.  I also made napkin rings with recycled book pages and ribbon.  I adorned the table with some antique books I have in my collection.  I added some natural elements like shells, nuts, pine cones, and moss to glass containers.  I used some pine cones that we found on a walk we had the other day and spread them randomly on the table.  I also spray painted some mini pumpkins left over from Halloween.

Tip: Pumpkins always go on sale after Halloween.  Some places give them away for free!  They can’t get rid of the fast enough.

Here are some more pictures.
