Montage: 20 Fall Tablescapes for Thanksgiving

We’ll be spending a blissfully low key Thanksgiving at home this year, free of travel and extended family dynamics (not that there’s much drama, but still, there’s something to be said to sitting down to Thanksgiving dinner in one’s pajamas).

It will just be the four of us, with a turkey prepared by my handy kitchen husband. While I love the idea of creating an earthy and modern Thanksgiving table, I won’t put in much effort since I’ll spend this spare time working rather than playing. (I will however be styling a home bar for Absolut, so stay tuned for that in the next few days.)

Just because I can’t muster the time and motivation to style a creative Thanksgiving table, doesn’t mean I don’t love to look at them. (Pulling tablescapes from Pinterest takes much less energy after all.)

I’ve been perusing Pinterest for fall tablescapes for a blog post I did for Fall River, MA-based bedding brand Matouk. Since they make beautiful linens as well as (the most comfortable) sheets, we do a fair number of tablescape stories. Recently, my Matouk co-blogger Meredith Barnett met up with Boston interior designer Gary McBournie to learn how to fold a napkin, which you should definitely check out. You can also find all sorts of how to set the table infographics on my “For Your Information” Pinterest board.

First, scroll through these 20 Thanksgiving table ideas. If I were to spend the time and creative energy styling a Thanksgiving table, it would be inspired by these autumnal displays of flowers, leaves, and harvest happiness.

Montage: 35 Bell Jars (or Cloches If You’re French)

Anything can be art under glass. I first heard this from stylist Kara Butterfield, who displayed rocks in and under tumblers on her mantle in Boston. She told me,  “If you put anything in a glass, or behind glass it celebrates it, gives it meaning, like a picture in a frame.”  Others seem to be catching on. Bell jars, or cloches, seem to be on every console and coffee table, containing anything from fawn figurines to succulents or matchbox cars to brass nails. J. Crew has even been showcasing shoes under them. Here’s a look at 35 examples which includes live plants, dead insects, and inanimate objects from the ordinary to intricate.
