Transition your holiday entertaining decor from Halloween to Thanksgiving seamlessly with pumpkins!
This fall, make the classic pumpkin and gourd motif the centre of your Halloween and Thanksgiving decor – the symbol that ties these two holidays seamlessly together.
Vase fillers are a classic and classy addition to any dinner party – opt for pumpkins, acorns, chestnuts, dried cranberries, persimmons, cinnamon quills for the Halloween and Thanksgiving season. Scattering these items across the table, in a garland like fashion, will add a raw, harvest essence to the table.
String lights will add a spooky yet festive flair to your dinner table. Twist and position a few metres of string lights down the centre of the table (be sure you have a power outlet near by!) These acorn lights fit perfectly into the harvest theme.
Pair copper with other moody hues – black, gold etc. The timeless elegance of copper will not only add a gothic flair to your Halloween tablescape, but it will also carry stylishly through to Thanksgiving. Gold and copper flatware are also coming back a a huge way – wow your guests with simple yet striking cutlery.
Although reds, browns, oranges and yellows are the typical colors for the season, you can never go wrong with a good monochrome tablescape! Think black, white and gold pumpkins, black/white lanterns and crisp white linen. Pair with copper serveware and flatware and slate coasters and trays.
These gothic-inspired slate coasters and trays pair perfectly with autumnal harvest decor.
Tips & Tricks
– Set your table the night before – this will ensure everything is perfect when the doorbell rings and will give you plenty of time stress-free time to focus on food preparation.
– Don’t overstuff your table with fall inspired decor – it’s all about balance. For example, balance copper serve-ware with white or cream dinner plates and chargers.
