Thanksgiving Tablescape Inspired by Williams Sonoma Decorate With Me

place and I would invite you to subscribe to my channel below and turn
the Bell notifications on because I bring you weekly tutorials that I hope
you will join me for this week’s episode is in collaboration with Heidi Sonboul
of happily thriving Heidi and it is a fall table decor collaboration with
several other talented and amazing women so after you’re through watching my
episode I’ve invite you to pop on over to Heidi’s channel check it out and then
check out all of the fall table decor inspiration you can handle on the
playlist so I’ll provide all of the links for everything in the description
box below last year I did a poolside Thanksgiving table scape it was amazing
to have Thanksgiving poolside especially after years and years of having very
cold weather so this year it is going to be indoors and while I would love to
have a formal dining room in my house my home does not have one and you know what
I figure a lot of people are in the same situation so I’m just gonna roll with it
now I love table scaping it is so much fun for me to create a beautiful
environment to share a special meal with my family and friends and so today I’m
going to be doing a Thanksgiving or friendsgiving table we live away from
family so we may or may not be able to have family with us every thanksgiving
I realize a lot of other people are probably in that situation as well so
we’ll call this a friendsgiving it could also be a Thanksgiving it works
for both to be honest with you so I’m really excited about it because I’ve got
a lot of fun things planned for you let’s get started so if you’ve seen any of my tablescapes
you know this is the part where I usually put out a nice white tablecloth
and then I roll some wrapping paper and do a runner well we’re doing things
different this time and so this time I am leaving the wood table exposed it’s
beautiful and I think it will add to our tablescape next time I’ll probably
break out the tablecloth but this time we’re shaking things up I wanted to do a
whole bunch of greenery on my table but I wanted to protect the wood a little
bit from all of that greenery I already had this white contact paper on hand
that I used in my chandelier makeover if you haven’t seen that episode I highly
recommend it so this is free it’s gonna work for what we’re doing so I’m just
gonna roll it out and this is really just to kind of protect my table as well
just add a little pop of color and contrast alright I got my hands full
here so I have this beautiful basket that I got on clearance from Hobby Lobby
and I’m just going to put that in the center of my table make sure that the
runner is straight and this is just to add some texture and because it’s
Thanksgiving it kind of gives that bountiful basket feel now I have a giant
assortment of greenery now some of this is silk and some of it is real the
magnolia leaves are real you don’t have to use silk I just went around my house
and gathered up all the greenery that I hadn’t done anything with yet go outside
and collect a whole assortment of greenery fresh is awesome I just got
these magnolias in my neighborhood and I just love magnolias and we’re just going
to mix it all together and just create a nice bedding of greenery but before we
put our greenery in I am going to take our Magnolia dupe cake stand and I’m
going to just place this on the center you’ll see what I’m gonna put on it in a
sec but at least we’ll have that set and we
can kind of build from there this is looking really good I’m really
happy with it mixing in a ton of greenery it just creates a softness
that’s beautiful and inviting I’m just going to keep going until I use all of
the greenery I think we’re about done with this part I’m just gonna do a
little cleanup from all of our clippings and then we’re gonna move to the next
step I am really happy with our foundation here it’s lush it’s green
it’s so interesting to look at but now we need to kind of bring it into the
fall decor realm and we are gonna do that by adding some pumpkins so I picked
these pumpkins up at Walmart and then I just painted them out with chalk paint
and added a little dimension in the crevices they are so beautiful and I am
not exactly sure how we’re going to do them but I think we are gonna just play
around a little bit and see how we like it so I might put these ones on the ends
here this one and then I have a whole bunch of tiny pumpkins that we’re going
to add an assortment of new ones as well as old ones from last year so and that’s
what you can do is you collect over time and then you can create a beautiful
tablescape just nestle them in wherever you see a
little spot and just add it until you think it looks good
now these little guys are from the target dollar spot last year they match
my chairs so we’re going to tuck a few of them in we’ve got to balance it out
so make sure you don’t forget the back we’re not doing this part this time
that’ll be next week so make sure you stay tuned for that because it’s gonna
coordinate with what we’ve got going on here and there will be some interactive
elements that you’re not gonna want to miss so stay tuned for that these are
some DIY hurricanes all I did was take some dollar tree vases and I glued them
to a tea light and so it’s a very elegant looking and we are just going to
nestle those in right here and then we’re gonna add something to them and
I’ll show you what and just a second here because we are staying with the
mostly neutral green theme I have these bag of dried split peas and we are just
going to open those up and pour them in our DIY hurricanes and then we’re gonna
just stick in one of our Dollar Tree candles and kind of just push it down in
there now it’s time to set our table and I’m going to start out with my
chalkboard chargers that I used on last year’s Thanksgiving table now I know
that I have navy blue in here but it’s just an accent and I think it’s going to
help our appetizer plates really pop and so it’s okay to put the black with a
blue I’m gonna give you permission so we’ll just set that now and we’re setting our table for six
because I still haven’t found the right captain’s chairs yet that is on my wish
list and maybe I will find the perfect one and you’ll see them next time I’m
all about a white plate so we’re just using our everyday white plate and is
we’re gonna dress it up with some other elements I forgot to add my placemats they’re
gonna look adorable and I cannot believe I forgot them to balance out all the
green that we’ve got going on and I do have some navy blue on my chair so I
didn’t want to go too overboard I found this adorable navy blue and
white buffalo check plaid at Hobby Lobby and I just made up some napkins I like
to do this because buying and fabric napkins are really expensive so making
them are so easy if you’re interested in seeing how I go about making my fabric
napkins I’m going to link that episode above and below as well and you will see
just how easy it is so we’re gonna place these napkins now and I pulled mine in
thirds and I’m going to let them hang off the edge of the table a little bit
and I just go up to the top of the plate and let it hang down seriously making
fabric napkins it like took me less than 20 minutes and it just feels more
elegant and more formal I love it and now for what I consider kind of the
pièce de résistance these were featured in my last episode however I
made them in gray on my last episode for the sake of the dupe but on our
Thanksgiving table – and pull the black of the chargers and I really wanted them
to pop so I went with black on these ones but these are DIY plates that are
so cute they say thankful and grateful very inexpensive at $2 a plate now if
you don’t want to make some there’s some similar ones at Walmart and they’re cute
I just really like these and they make a great gift for your guests and a great
conversation starter so we’re going to place these and you just rotate every other one now
it’s time to add our stemware and this glass we’ll pull in our hurricanes and
add a little shine so for our final element of our table scape I have these
interactive name cards and we are just going to set them on the upper edge of
the plate and if you want to see how I made these as well as see the
interactive feature of these name cards you’re going to want to stay tuned for
next week I’m going to show you how to do that as well as a few other things
back here that’s going to coordinate and look awesome so stay tuned for that that’s it our fall tablescape is done
this would be perfect for your Thanksgiving dinner or a friendsgiving
dinner depending on your situation and I just love it there’s a lot of things
going on and you don’t have to spend a lot of money the placemats were two
dollars the Chargers were a dollar and the DIY that I did last year make sure
you check the description box because there is going to be a ton of resources
for you in recreating this look everything on this table is totally
affordable it looks expensive it looks luxurious really you can recreate this

    Our family, & extended family are always together on Thanksgiving. There's a super sized man cave completely furnished with seating, bar, bar stools, wide screen tv & vintage autos. Nothing like a pink Cadillac convertible to kick back in & watch the game. Lol

    New subscriber here. Loved the idea of Friendsgiving. The greenery was lush and beautiful.

  27. Cynthia Amitrano says:

    Are you in the states or Canada? I think you answered my question. Magnolia trees grow in the south so I'm guessing you are southern to SE US. I know different varieties grow further north. We have them in Minnesota, but they aren't anything like the wonderfully fragrant magnolias of the south. I make most curtains out of geometric patterns, ie, straight lines. This way I can measure and count and don't need a pattern. I use checks of different size and color in my kitchen, red, yellow, green or black. Right now I have green but will switch to red very shortly – maybe. Southern exposure is very hard on most fabrics. My kitchen faces directly south. Your home is lovely. You didn't add your flatware. The tablescape is beautiful.

    My personal opinion, it’s very unrealistic to have all that stuff in the middle of the table during the Thanksgiving holidays…so much unnecessary clutter. I’d rather see food in the middle of the table.

  49. Erika Schaser says:

    NataLee thats looks absolutely elegant. Wish I can have people around me to do for them something like that. That is what happens when you leave your family and friends behind.😭😍😍👌👍

  57. Patricia Simmel says:

    Love your hurricane candle holders with dried peas. The entire tablescape is fabulous.

  58. Gayla Pappenfoht says:

    Really beautiful! I would love to re-create this for my Fall meals. My favorite parts are the pumpkins and napkins… with your plan I can get the perfect shade of pumpkin… and I love real napkins. So I am guessing your guests will go around a buffet type set out and there isn't room on the table for the food? I like that presentation anyway…

  59. Debra Gull says:

    So beautiful Natalie! Everything you do is so classy. Love your channel <3

  60. Pretty. Simple. Sherri. says:

    Natalee, your centerpiece is so gorgeous!!! I am a fool for anything navy blue so I am totally loving this look. This was such a fun collab and I am loving all of the inspiration I am getting from all of the ladies.


    GORGEOUS! Love how you mixed the greens and layered in the colorful pumpkins! You are my hero, girl! Have a sweet day!

  62. Robin Silver says:

  74. JennysHome 1 says:

    Wow so nice you all did such a great job on this collab!

  75. Lisa Walters says:

    Really pretty. And may I say, just change out the pumpkins and this would go for each season. Really beautiful. Tfs.

  76. Susan Johnson says:

    Love your place settings, every detail. But the centerpiece is absolutely exquisite! The natural beauty and softness of the greens draw me in. . . what a beautiful table to enjoy along with a special dinner! Many years ago we celebrated "Early Thanksgiving" in late Oct. or early Nov. that included our local extended family. Our kids loved it:) The very first celebration was to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner with our CA family here, visiting in OH. Our daughter's family celebrates "Thanksmas" between Thanksgiving and Christmas with a host of friends, all former rugby players! Now our own adult kids host in their homes – sweet:)

  77. Beatrice Serrano says:

    Awesome. Ok i subscribed to every one of them.

  81. Only at the Rush's January Rush says:

    I just love it. I think it is beautiful. I would put everything in my dinning room. I as well painted the same pumpkins from walmart. I will be watching the video on the napkins. I have a magnolia tree in my yard as well. I never thought about bringing the greenery in. I wonder how long it will last?

  82. Bethany R says:

  87. ShimmySham100 says:

    I love that you'd didn't do the traditional garish Thanksgiving colors but still made it feel "of the seasons."

  88. Shannon burgess whittle says:

    I truly loved it! I love bringing nature’s gifts into our homes and enjoying the beauty of the colors and textures it can add… I absolutely love this time of year going into the holidays, I feel they bring families back together and remind us all how grateful we are for one another. We need it more than ever in our world as well. Xoxo

  89. Elma Jean says:

    I love it all, so beautiful ❤️

  90. Dana Suro says:

    Beautiful Tablescape! Love it

  91. It ́s Just Me- Robin says:

    Hi Natalie. Your Fall tablescape is gorgeous. I love the non-traditional color scheme. Lots of cool DIYs also. Your centerpiece is magnificent. TFS ❣️

  92. Emily Mayer says:

    I was so taken with the pretty bluish/greenish/greyish color of certain squashes, I designed a TABLE SETTING for THANKSGIVING 2012 using the squashes and some teal colored accents with my Homer Laughlin Golden Wheat dinnerware, an ivory hand-stitched tablecloth from a friend and some pretty off-white ceramic cornucopia vases. My friend's grandmother embroidered the tablecloth in the early 1900s and he wanted to know if I wanted to have it, otherwise he would just "cut it into rags and use them for clean up". Of course, I immediately said yes! I wish I could post a pic, it turned out great. I especially liked how the golden yellow in the wheat design went with the teal green, a very interesting and pleasing color combination.
