Dining Room Reveal & Thanksgiving Tablescape

Dining Room Reveal & Thanksgiving Tablescape

My first home tour on Hello Gorgeous was back in 2013.  I was a newlywed and a new blogger at the time.  When I look back at this old post, it’s so crazy to think of how far we’ve come in just four short years.  We now live in a different house and we’ll be a family of three before we know it.  So crazy!

I haven’t shared a tablescape post since 2013 for one simple reason…  I didn’t have a dining table.  Sounds crazy, I know.  Sometime after our first married Christmas, Hello Gorgeous began taking over our home.  We chose to forego our dining room, to have extra space for work.  We had a breakfast bar that we ate 99% of all our meals at.

I really enjoy decorating for holidays; however, practicality won out on the dining room space because of the other 11 months of the year.  Our new house has the space for a dedicated studio/office for me AND a dining room.  Cue the dancing red dress girl emogi here!

It’s been so much fun picking out new pieces for our dining room.  So without further ado, here is our dining room all decorated for Thanksgiving.  Just a head’s up, this room isn’t 100% finished yet.  We’re on the hunt for the perfect buffet and wall decor still.

We fell in love with this dining table in April while visiting 30A, but we had no way of getting it home.  I was able to track it down on Wayfair and it turned out to be the perfect piece.  Our dining table is the Pokorny Aldean Dining Table which has sadly since sold out.  The dimensions are: 43″w x 98″d x 30″h, which neatly fit our eight dining chairs.  We paired it with french round back chairs and two upholstered high back chairs on each end from Restoration Hardware.  We were able to achieve the look I wanted with this combination.

I wanted to create a beautiful table setting with warm tones.  I’m always looking for a reason to use gold flatware and Thanksgiving is the perfect excuse.  I’m really happy with the way this setting turned out with the burlap ruffled placemats, scalloped charger and delicate Thankful plate (sold out).

This post is so delayed because of my centerpiece.  I wanted to create my own centerpiece that fit the room perfectly.  I love to DIY when I can, but sometimes life just doesn’t allow me to put the time into a project that I’d like to.  I decided to keep my everyday soft green runner and began decorating with these cute little white pumpkins I snagged at TJ Maxx.  I added in other pumpkins in various colors and sizes from Hobby Lobby and Homegoods along with my white wood candle holders from World Market.  Something was missing…  So, in came the fairy lights, pinecones and greenery…  Voila!  My centerpiece was complete.

How do you decorate for Thanksgiving?  We have a hybrid of Thanksgiving meets Christmas going on in our house and honestly…  I love it.  We put up our new flocked Christmas tree in the family room and it’s stunning.  I haven’t decided how to decorate it yet, so Pinterest is calling my name.

  • Beautiful tablescape! I love hosting for the holidays and all the cooking and decorating that comes with it. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and Christmas!

  • This is gorgeous Angela! You’ve outdone yourself! This makes me want to host a dinner party but I’ll be traveling for Thanksgiving instead. Also, LOVE that sweater, first I’ve seen one like that and I truly love it. Great post!

      Thank you, Kellie! I’m working on transitioning the room to Christmas today! 🙂

  • Love love your sweater. Only seeing the round neck on the website, but love the V-neck better. I am going to hunt down a less expensive version. So cute.

    LOVE YOUR TABLE DECORATIONS!!!! It kinda has that rustic feel that I love. Your wall color is beautiful too. We don’t really decorate that much except for Christmas and this year I am going in a completely rustic direction instead of the peacock colors I had been decorating in since we moved into our house(especially because my tree topper bit the dust last year). Hobby Lobby has a whole rustic line that I am totally in love with. I am gonna check out Home Goods too! Blessings!

    I love everything about your tablescape! I absolutely love the gold, candles, pumpkins & thankful plates! I don’t decorate for Thanksgiving, but I want to start that tradition! I can’t wait to decorate for Christmas! I may get home from CA 11:00 Friday night, but I’m doing it! Not a day wasted! ?

  • I love how you put this all together and I think I’m going to snag some of those plates as well what a great deal!! xoxo

    Love your table setting! It’s fabulous. The gold silverware is perfect. I just got some gold silverware from World Market for everyday use and I love it. It adds so much to our daily meals. 🙂 Thought you might like it too – https://www.worldmarket.com/product/gold+wave+flatware+collection.do?sortby=ourPicks&from=fn
