When it comes to creating a tablescape, we love bringing elements from the outdoors in. Whether it’s snowing or sweltering outside, working with natural, in-season materials is the best place to start when decorating for events, and helps create the perfect atmosphere any time of year. The best part? You can usually gather all the items you will need for decorating without spending a whole lot of money. For example, you can make bouquets, garlands and centerpieces in spring and summer by using freshly blooming flower and berries. For fall and winter, you can use herbs, evergreen boughs, foraged items or even sticks and leaves.
We laid the foundation for our tablescape by creating a living table runner made from eucalyptus, red apples and a variety of candles. Then we took our decor a step further by creating personalized wine labels, beverage coasters, place cards and hang tags in the same style to add our own personal touch, and to help enhance the theme with design accents. Keep scrolling for a closer look at each element:
If you’re serving champagne or wine, soak off the front label and replace it with your own personalized labels (we have a video tutorial for using wine labels here). Place your wine bottles around the center of your table so everyone has access and can refill throughout the night as needed.
Use personalized beverage coasters for your drinks. You can even have your guests write what they’re thankful for on the back and save them as keepsakes!
Create appealing place settings by creating custom holiday place cards for each of your guests, or try one of these three Thanksgiving place setting ideas.
For the final touch, wrap a buns or baguettes with personalized hang tags, and place one at each place setting for each of your guests.
