Thanksgiving Tablescape

2013-10-28 20.43bc

I’m on to the second JoAnn Fabric and Craft Stores Celebrate the Season campaign.  My theme to work around? #turkeytablescapes.

We were to create a festive tablescape or a turkey decoration to make our Thanksgiving table a memorable one.  I’ve always loved the season of autumn (I may be a little obsessed with it, since my name is actually Autumn) and I’ve always loved the decorations that follow Halloween…classic and unadulterated fall decorations.  But, I’ve never had a Thanksgiving dinner at my own house!  We always travel to have Thanksgiving with family, so for this theme, I had a completely blank slate to start with.

I wanted to create a simple, sort of rustic-chic look with only a few elements that epitomize autumn and Thanksgiving to me.  A pretty white pumpkin with a classic phrase that conjures up a thankful heart, warm candles nestled in popcorn kernels all atop a bleached burlap table runner, accessorized with creamy lace, eyelet and ruffles.

I sort of followed {this} tutorial to make my tablerunner, but added the trims before sewing the front of the runner to the back.

I was able to gather all of the ingredients for this simple fall look from my local Jo-Ann’s store from the fabric and trims of the table runner, to the flameless candles, vases and the pumpkin.

My favorite part is the table runner.  I love the unusual pairing of lace and ruffles with the rough and rustic burlap, and plan on having this up all month long!  To create this look, I just stitched a thick 3 inch cream lace in place, and lined up a piece of cream eyelet trim right along the top edge of it to create a two-faced dainty element to the rough fabric of the burlap.  I think it embellishes it perfectly.  You can find a great tutorial for the tablerunner {here} I just added the trims before sewing the two sides together!
