My overall theme for this was chic and simple, but still festive. I stuck with white, gold and orange as my color scheme with pops of brown and the navy plaid napkins. I love the plaid as it's an unexpected pattern for Thanksgiving but love the way it pulls the entire table and room together.
For my centerpiece I just took this white cake stand, added some mini pumpkins and my gold decorative object and some leaves and voila! Instant centerpiece. It's simple and the perfect height so guests aren't having to look around it to chat with one another or pass dishes.
I took my white DIY chalkboard I made and wrote the menu on it. It adds nice height to the buffet and let's guests know what they will be eating.
I made the namecards from gift tag stickers I got from Target in their holiday section. I just cut cardstock out, folded it over and stuck the sticker on front. It cost me under $10 and about 10 minutes to make!
The 'Give Thanks' banner I made myself and hung up with twine and mini clothespins from Target's $1 section. True life Target's $1 is the bomb.com and the perfect spot to get little decor items for the holidays! If you want to cut and hang your own here is the link to the print out.
The buffet runner is something I picked up from Wal-Mart for under $10! It's a great size for your buffet or if you have a long enough table, for your table.
The placemats are from this party set I got on clearance at HomeGoods. I'm excited to use them again for other parties! The gold chargers are from Target but you can get them anywhere. All the plates and bowls are from Home Goods too. The gold rimmed tumblers are from At Home. Napkins, dishes, goblets and silverware I had and I'm not sure where my parents got them from.
I added this glass vase with filing from Hobby Lobby to make it a little more festive. Throw some fake leaves and wham-bam fall-ified.
My bar cart is from Target and I LOVE it! It's definitely something worth purchasing especially if you plan to entertain (like I do!). Plus, it just looks really pretty too! ;)
