Elegant Thanksgiving Table Using Mixed Metals

Welcome to our Thanksgiving blog hop! I’m so glad you’ve stopped by today and I’m excited to share my Elegant Thanksgiving Table Using Mixed Metals with all of you. As you may or may not already know, I live in Canada where we celebrate Thanksgiving in early October.  For me that means two things: 1) My Thanksgiving table usually takes on a very fall feel (the leaves are turning, PSL’s are just about a daily ritual) and 2) We’ve already celebrated Thanksgiving! But…I’ve been excited and waiting to share the full details with you!!

My table began with this beautiful gold metallic table runner.  In keeping with my metals theme, I added these gold charger plates and my favourite cutlery.

I used a simple white place mat under the gold chargers to add some texture between the chargers and the table. It really makes them pop!

Also in keeping with my mixed metals theme are these rose gold pumpkins. I like the modern touch they add to my traditional dining room. The taper candles are soft and elegant, perfect in here!

For my floral arrangement, I wanted something bold yet feminine and I love how it turned out! I especially like these rich, plum coloured carnations.  They’re not a usual flower choice for me,  but I’m really loving the look of them! The mercury glass pedestal vase adds the perfect elegant and metallic touch to the table.

I kept my table settings very simple this year.  Black and white plaid plates I purchased at the end of the summer, black napkins and appetizer soup bowls filled with tiny pumpkins and pine cones.

We enjoyed this delicious Pinot Gris from Sandhill Wines with our Thanksgiving dinner.  We had a lovely visit to their urban winery on a recent couple’s getaway this fall. If you’re planning a visit to Kelowna, you’ll want to stop by their tasting room.

I added cushions to the chairs at the ends of the table and I really like the softness it adds to my dark wood furniture.

Something I’m thankful for that I think about whenever we have dinner in here, is how my Dad refinished this dining room set for us when we were a young family moving into our first home.  It was his parent’s before it was in my parent’s home when I was growing up.  Sometimes I think about refinishing it myself, but can’t seem to do it since my Dad has passed now.  That kind of furniture is special, the kind that tells a story and holds family memories through generations. I’m thankful every time I get to sit down with my favourite people at this table…what are you thankful for?

    I love that your dad refinished your table! What a special piece and memory. I don’t think I would refinish it either. Thanks for such a beautiful tour!
