My first hosted Thanksgiving
I’ve always wanted to host Thanksgiving but
Thankfully Fortessa was so gracious to gift me all the flat & glass wear needed to create a beautiful tablescape.
Fortessa has a beautiful selection to choose from, great quality and everything is dishwasher safe. I was able to shop at home online but you can also go into their One Loudoun, VA location to touch and feel
I used a combination of things I currently own, fresh produce that can be consumed later and some new buys that can be stored and used again. I really wanted to stay away from things that would only be used once and just end up in the trash.
First I went to Micheals to get the chargers (#3 shown below). On the website, it says $9 but I only paid I think $2 in-store with coupons. Next I headed to Jo-Ann Fabrics to find the napkins. I got one yard of fabric for $8, cut into 8 squares and then Pinterest ways to fold. I took a poll on IG and you guys selected the knotted look which I also love.
Getting fresh produce was an easy way to make the table look a bit fuller while adding color. Wegmans had oranges (can’t remember the kind) that had stems and leaves still attached which was so perfect for the look I was going for! I also got apples, concord grapes, and pomegranates. The leaves are a combination of fake ones and real ones I picked from trees outside my house. I had some leftover rose gold spray paint so I spayed a few. The ones on the plates are natural. The pinecones were old Christmas or
The rest of the decor are candles that I have owned for years and place in different areas throughout the year.
