If I Hosted Friendsgiving.....

I seriously need my own place so I can throw dinner parties. I think dinner parties are fun and fancy and something that needs to be brought back. They combine good food, good friends and equal a good time! Today I was thinking how I would decorate my table if I threw an autumn/Thanksgiving/Friendsgiving dinner party. So I went to my favorite place, Pinterest, to find some tablescape inspo. 

My theme is simple, elegant and rustic. My color scheme is gold and white with pops of orange. I'm a huge lover of gold and white for the fall time. I think it's so clean and elegant, yet still festive. 

I love the gold charger! 

Love the gold silveware and polka dot placemat! 

I would use the gold painted leaf as part of the centerpiece not a name card. 
Love the crispness of the white and gold together!

Instead of just the letter I would write the entire name but I love the gold foil pumpkin!

This is probably as close to the tablescape I have in my head. Just imagine the leaves and some pumpkins pained gold! 
If I were making dinner this is the menu I would serve!
There would be cocktails, cranberry spritzer, before dinner, non-alcoholic of course served with some h'ordeuvres like apple, honey and brie crostini. Then we'd move to soup, then dinner and finally dessert served with coffee and tea.  

How perfect would this dinner party be?! I need my own place so I can throw this perfectly planned Thanksgiving dinner. Perhaps next year it'll happen. Who knows! 

Hope this inspired you if you do Thanksgiving or maybe want to throw a little autumn dinner party! If you do tag me so I can ooh and aww and wish I was there too! :)

Till next time!
