We love this beautiful Thanksgiving Table created by Paige Minear from the Pink Clutch. The mix of Gina Langford's Forest Garland design with Paige's chinoiserie blue and green table accents are such a fresh take for fall. Here are a few thoughts from Paige on creating her beautiful spread:
This year when designing our table I worked with two incredible companies to bring together what may be my favorite fall table to date. Mixing together my favorite blue and white dishes and a new addition of green I am thrilled with the set up that I have enjoyed for a few days as I pass the room heading to other parts of the house. Since the leaves are turning and falling to the ground the green was a fun choice to make sure I still have a good splash of green in my immediate vision.
I am a girl who likes to use what she has mixed in with a few new things to make the old things feel bright and shiny when sitting next to their new friends. I rarely use our Blue Willow salad plates so this set up was truly a treat for me. I used burlap chargers that I already owned along with a Chinoiserie green tablecloth from a few years ago and mixed in Kate Spade green dinner plates (thank you Lance!) and the blue and white salad plates and butter pats I was dying to use.
I headed to my favorite spot for fabulous finds and gathered up some amazing pieces to add to not only the table but also the room. My choices from At Home round out the table perfectly and also create two spaces to have more serving area and easy access to things I will need for the day. I love that family and friends will be able to make drinks and serve themselves while the Hubs and I are still pulling together last minute things to finish off the meal.
I am smitten with the incredible menu and place cards I chose designed by Gina Langford from Dixie Design Collective. Aren't they amazing?? I love how they tie all of the blue and magnolia together to create a fabulous fall dinner. The girls were incredible to work with and helped me chose exactly what I was looking for and then narrow down font options. I was looking for a feeling of warmth and comfort instead of a feeling of formality. The lower case fonts we mixed together created exactly what I was hoping to achieve. I love the customer service the girls provided, never once did I feel like they were anything other than helpful when I kept changing my mind. Being so picky can sometimes not be my friend. My menus and place cards arrived so quickly and the wrapping and personal note that always impresses me took my breath away once again. I have my eye on two other designs for Christmas gatherings. #yay!!!
I decided to tie the place cards to my At Home copper mugs for two reasons. I love that it changes it up and I love that when the cups are picked up from the table and used there is no question who's drink belongs to whom. Win, win!
