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.

Site Spotlight: Lulu DK’s New Online Shop

I’ve been promising Lulu for about a month now that I’d highlight the newly launched online shop. Seeing how I’m off to South Florida this morning (sun!) it seemed like a good time to indulge in her colorful, slightly Palm-beach inspired designs.

I love Lulu’s style, and am so psyched that I get to work with her through Matouk. (My friend Meredith and I write the Matouk blog; Lulu designs the Lulu DK for Matouk line of bedding.) She is talented, gorgeous, so very cool, and really nice. I haven’t met her IRL, but we’ve chatted by phone and email, and laugh about following each other on Pinterest. She too is the tiniest bit Pinterest-obsessed.

Lulu DK Textile Designer Matouk

Lulu is Lulu de Kwiatkowski, otherwise known as Lulu DK. She grew up in NYC, Hamptons, and Bahamas, studied abroad during her high school then earned a Fine Arts and Interior Design degree at Parsons School of Design. After graduation she headed to Paris. (I told you she’s cool.) In 1998, Lulu became enthralled by a fabric mill outside of Paris, and a few months later, her textile company LULU DK was born.

In addition to fabrics, wallpaper, bed linens, carpet, and fine art (you may have seen her prints on One King’s Lane), Lulu has just launched a webshop with a number of new items as the start of a total lifestyle brand. Here are some of her fun and vibrant designs.
