Thanksgiving Table Dressed In Champagne

Today I put together a dressy
Thanksgiving table using champagne
colors.  The colors go so well with my
home and especially my dining room chairs.

This turkey plate from Home Goods was
my inspiration for the color scheme with the
taupe color of the transferware.

I love the soft watercolor effect of
pale reds, yellows and blues on these neutral plates.
The soft colors add dimension and interest.

They are stacked over two taupe colored
plates in graduating sizes.

You aren't usually going to find lidded 
pumpkins in champagne or taupe so
I purchased some orange lidded candles from
Wal Mart and used
 Krylon's Metallic Caramel Latte paint 
in satin and gave them a coat.

They are decorative only so I
don't need to worry about them being 
food safe.

In orange they were just gaudy 
and not very pretty, as a matter
of fact, they were on clearance,
but with a coat of metallic soft
paint, they are lovely.

The painted pumpkins are a
perfect match with my new glasses
that I brought home from Cabo
last time.  I love their gorgeous
champagne color.

Ralph Lauren napkins in taupe
are gathered with a tassel from
a fabric store.

The new champagne colored glasses
are paired with bubble glasses.

Rustic place woven brown placemats anchor
the placesettings and cream colored flatware 
are the choice for today.

I love how all the soft colors work together
to create a dressy table.

The centerpiece is set in a jewelled 
champagne colored wreath, mixing the
dressy with the rustic.

Pure elegance in the materials of this

As you r eye crosses the table, the
combined textures create an
elegant interest.

It is fun to put together a
 non-traditionally colored table.

The candles are lit and we are ready
to dine.

Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.

  33. From halloween whimsy to elegant Thanksgiving. You don't miss a beat. Beautiful table!

  34. The Thanksgiving feel is there even without the non-traditional color pallete. Stunning table Jacqueline!

  35. Oh, this table is beautiful! I love the shimmer of the champagne colors. The centerpiece is wonderful! Thank you for joining me for Home Sweet Home! On my lens it goes with my Cannon rebel so it is a Cannon EF 50mm f/1.8. It is a really basic lens but I get some nice effects with it.

  36. Such a pretty table with the pumpkins sprayed. Great job...


  37. Jacqueline, This is a very creative and dramatic tablescape. I love the turkey plates, the little pumpkins and the flatware. I like the tassels on the napkins as well. Simply stunning! I did want to respond to your question about the little pumpkins. I did not grow them. However, I grew "pumpkin on a stick" which is an ornamental eggplant and the little pumpkins are bright orange. We had fun experimenting with those plants as well as "Easter egg plants." If you are interested, the seeds should be available from Park Seed Company. I want to wish you and your family a wonderful Thanksgiving!
    Hugs, Beth

  38. This is spectacular Jacqueline.
    Every little detail is perfect...of never disappoint. I love your creativity and spirit. It's always a pleasure to visit and also get inspired. Enjoy your day! Linda

  39. oh how I love this! Thanksgiving is my favorite time of year!! anne

  40. Beautiful..and it brings back such warm memories for me.. a dear friend..gifted me w/ sets of these..when I became a nana..she wanted me to have a pretty table for my family:)

    Imagine that.

  41. Beeeeauuutifulllll!!! Love the color! Perfect compliment into the holiday season! And those pumpkins.. let me tell you girl, you had me running downstairs to see if I had those pumpkins so I could paint mine...I have acorn candy dishes....CRAZY we are!!! If you ever decide to "clean out" your stock..please let me know. I would love to take some dishes/stemware off your hands! LOL
    Keep doing what your doing!

  42. What beautiful, soft colors! You family will be delighted with that table.

  43. Beautifully done! Turned out gorgeous!

  44. Jacqueline
    I really like the muted tones you've used for your Thanksgiving table. The pumpkins you sprayed look much nicer than they would have in orange.

  45. What a great idea to paint those lidded pumpkin candles, they look beautiful! I love using wreaths as centerpieces, and yours is just perfect with this table. It is all just stunning!!

  46. Gorgeous colors and arrangement for Thanksgiving, Jacqueline! This is the first time I am not hosting the holiday for my extended feels a little strange not to be plannig a menu and beginning my shopping. It will fun to be a "guest" however. :)

  47. Fantastic colors and textures...very inviting for lingering at the table over the Thanksgiving meal and fellowship!

  48. Gorgeous- I wish we were neighbors!! =) I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

  49. Oh I love your palette and all the soft layers & textures! I have those same turkey plates but they never had such a beautiful setting as this! Genius idea to paint your little lidded pumpkins :)

  50. I'm crazy for the champagne and glitter here Jackie! You are extremely talented at this table setting stuff. I'm so glad I can pin it!

  51. I am in love with the soft glittery glow of your table! It gives a very sophisticated tone for Thanksgiving! Well done!

  52. So pretty! I LOVE the turkey transferware plates!

  53. Fabulous table setup! Enjoy the beautiful weekend, Kellie xx

  54. Love your turkey plates, they remind me of some my mother in law had. Lovely table.

  55. Absolutely beautiful pictures and table settings. And that looks like a pretty good chocolate dipper elf too. Kathi

  56. I purchased the same transferware turkey plates but have yet to use them as I couldn't decide how to pair them. You did a magnificent job!

  57. I saw your dishes at TJ Maxx and loved them. I should have bought them on the spot because when I went back to get them, all but a few pieces were gone. You've used them well.
    BTW, do I remember that you recently took kids to Universal? I going in December. Do you have any helpful hints?

  58. Beautiful!! Thanks for sharing at Feathered Nest Friday!
