Thanksgiving Table Inspiration

I've been needlessly stressed about Thanksgiving dinner. I am forgetting the reason for the day.. to spend time with friends and family, being thankful for the many blessings in my life and eating myself into a Turducken coma. So, I scrapped all of my grand ideas for this Colin Cowie-esque table and buffet setting.

In an effort to simplify my life and preserve my sanity, I want to have a beautiful yet chic. My dining room is basically a blank slate, so I figured I really wanted to make the table pop but with minimal effort. Here's my inspiration:

Simply yet impactful. I will have to run to the fabric store and hopefully they have a wide striped fabric. *fingers crossed*  

I will add my gold flatware, black plates, candles and a pretty flower arrangement and call it a fab Turkey Day!

Lovely! Do you have an Ikea nearby? If so, you need to go there and get yourself their 'Sofia' fabric - it's black & white, broad stripe fabric which is a dead ringer for the tablecloth in your pictures. Good luck!

P.S. I love this... said...

Hi Anita! What are you bringing to your family's dinner? Have you decided?

Hi ITNS! WOW.. you're awesome. I have an IKEA close by. I will be going there today. Thanks a bunch!

An instant smile came across my face. I love it! I want a wide striped tank dress.

Glad you got the fabric for the tablecloth! You have to post some pics so we can see how lovely your Thanksgiving table looked.
