3 Cool Tablescapes For a Trendy Thanksgiving

No need to stress about your Thanksgiving table! We’re here to help! We know it can be very overwhelming with all the small details, but we’ve come up with a way to make it just a little bit easier on you. There are multiple options for your Thanksgiving table setting, but to help you show off your inner designer, we’ve complied a few items from different local stores (Target, Pier1, Bloomingdales, and ZGallerie). We’ve broken them down into three different styles to fit several different personalities!

We wanted to showcase a traditional Thanksgiving tablescape, because this is the usual decor you see at most family dinners. Stick to the typical colors of the season, such as orange, yellow, and red. Using these colors will truly bring the feeling of Thanksgiving to your home. Try and use things you already have in your home, such as candles, to make a beautiful centerpiece. If you can’t find anything, a vase with some fresh flowers is always an easy go-to for a wonderful (and great smelling) centerpiece, but nothing completes a traditional Thanksgiving like pumpkins and leaves! Try to incorporate those into the table decor.

Glam it up with a more modern take! First off, we love this fur table runner! It’s so unique and trendy, but also gives the feeling of warmth we need throughout the fall/winter season. However, this style is much easier to incorporate items from around your home, such as white dishes, clear glasses, or white candles for a little extra fire in your table decor. Bring the bling with silver and gold accents! They will look great against this black and white backdrop and will give the table a very elegant look.

Or maybe, you’re a free spirit who doesn’t like traditional or modern! Maybe you prefer an “anything goes” approach. We encourage you to not hold back! Let your inner color child go wild. The beautiful, fun colors go great with rustic accents. Add wood and light garland to the table decor to keep it seasonal and relevant. Don’t be afraid to layer and add tons of texture. You can add in whatever your little heart desires!

Day 1: Honeycomb

Now that all the candy is gone and the witches have finished their brew, it is time for November, time to say Thank You!!!

This is the month everyone sits and thinks of all they have to be thankful for. Since this is a blog about design and fashion, we thought we’d give you a daily design element we are thankful for through out the month of November.

Our first daily dose of design features a pattern derived from nature and emerging as a re-newed trend and focal design element.

Honeycomb is a mass of geometric cells built in bee nests to store honey. The motif of hexagonal shapes come together like puzzle pieces which makes it a fabulous option for repeating patterns or pulling apart into single geometric shapes.

We love how versatile this pattern is – from elaborate decorative ceiling trim to a small detail on a decorative pillow, the honeycomb pattern is the perfect mix of art and nature. As you can see in the pictures below, you can implement this geometric pattern in any type of space.

The use of the honeycomb pattern in the left picture creates a visual interest on the ceiling and draws the eye up, while the bathroom on the right shows how creating a simple, repetitive pattern on the floor can make the space feel larger. Both are great ways to add visual interest to a narrow space.

Wall coverings are another way to tie in this geometric pattern. Like this vintage gold leafed David Hicks wallpaper. Gorgeous!

This kitchen uses the honeycomb pattern on the feature wall. Paired with the metallic shimmer of the tiles, a fabulous focal wall is created.

As we all know, trends are constantly changing and evolving – the honeycomb pattern is no different. So, if you are looking to keep up, but not be tied down, then accessories are the way to go! Below are a some fun accent pieces that can take a room from drab to fab in a snap!

Above are some DIY honeycomb shelves that work great for wall art or an unconventional way to display your favorite novels. A funky vase, mirror or lamp with some geometric detailing are other simple ways to bring in the honeycomb pattern. Always keep in mind that throw pillows are a fun way to bring in a bold pattern with little commitment.

As you can see, the honeycomb pattern has given us plenty to be thankful for. Weather you are re-designing an entire room or just looking to add a “sting” of drama to existing decor, this geometric design is a great way to go.

So, as this first day of November comes to an end, we leave you with the buzz-ness.

Until tomorrow my friends, stay “buzzy”!!
