A White Thanksgiving table and embellishing candles

It's less than a week until Thanksgiving and I guess everyone has their tablescapes/settings all planned.  In New Zealand we don't celebrate Thanksgiving but Christmas is not far away and some of the white table settings below could be used for both Thanksgiving, Christmas or a wedding.  I love the use of pumpkins, I had only associated them with Halloween so was surprised to see that they are used for Thanksgiving too. Here in blogland we learn things every day! I also have some ideas for embellishing your candles.

I love the embellished silver detail on the candles. You could easily glue a narrow ribbon and attach a beautiful embellishment such as the ones below with a hot glue gun to your candles.  A silver ribbon with a silver embellishment, black ribbon with black embellishment, gold with gold embellishment etc for a beautiful designer look, making a gorgeous original gift.

These gorgeous embellishments are from Truly Blessed Apparel, an etsy store. The designs above range in price from US$8.50 - US$12.00 each.

A touch of chocolate adds richness to this setting

  1. Very pretty!

    I love Thanksgiving pumpkins. I have a fun pumpkin cookie jar I always get out at the start of fall, and it's a lovely Thanksgiving pumpkin.

  2. Next year I have some ideas for pumpkins. A friend of the family collects antique cookie jars, he has a collection of about 50, they are from the UK and really pretty. Great idea to have a pumpkin one for Thanksgiving though.

  3. Very elegat pictures and decorations I like it
