Color, Inspirations

From Posy to Party

Diane James Home – Wine Country Bouquet

Now that Sandy has passed and the 9″ of snow has melted, we can finally turn our attention to the holidays and with Thanksgiving just a week away, it’s none too soon!  Given that this holiday really centers around food and therefore, the table, we like to go all out…  Thankfully, we’ve got the flowers covered and we’re thinking of a plum and silver theme to coordinate with our Wine Country Bouquet.

Loveramics – A Curious Toile

ABC Home – Mercury Glass Votive

Williams Sonoma – Place Card Holders

Kim Seybert – Silk Organza Napkin

Wisteria – Silvered Glass Gourds

What will inspire your Thanksgiving table this year?

P.S.  Need any ideas?  Join us at Nielsen’s tomorrow in Darien for a Home for the Holidays event, 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.  (all proceeds will benefit the Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County.)

    That sounds like a fun event! This year headed to my sisters beach house for a beachy Thanksgiving….so it will be kind of nice to be a guest and not have to stress over all the details…but my time will come and Christmas will be here before i know it..and in fact the stress has already set in:) The toile plates and artichoke place holders are especially fabulous!

    What a pretty table that will be! And the bouquet is beautiful. We’re at my parents this year, which our the annual tradition. My mother’s table is always simple and sweet – her delicious pie is what has everyone’s attention, including the family wired hair fox terrier. Can’t wait! XO

    I just discovered your blog through Quintessence and am so happy to have found it. The design ideas presented are very inspiring. I love the color scheme you chose for your Thanksgiving table. I will be dining at a friend’s house, but if I was decorating my own table, I would probably choose yellow and orange roses and go from there. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

    I set the table yesterday for Thanksgiving dinner!

    Wow! Love the wine colored arrangement. I think I’ve been surrounding myself with subdued colors so this is really fun.

    My mom arrives on Friday for the week…so lots to prep and do.

    C&C…beautiful combination, as always. I am sure the Darien event must have been spectacular…I miss Christmas in Connecticut..such a special place.
