Welcome friend! I'm so glad you have joined me here at Dreaming of Homemaking. I like to think of this blog as my journal, full of ideas that have helped me turn my house into a warm, welcoming home. My hope is that you too find this little piece of the internet a place to gather ideas and find inspiration.
First off, can I tell you how much I am loving how cozy this space is? If you have been following along for awhile you know that this was one big dining room before and we just turned it into a sitting room and a dining room. Since we have transformed this room its become the new place where we all hang out together and the kids don’t want to leave – it is the heart of our home.
Here is a sneak at my simple Thanksgiving table setting, I am just loving all the details and that you can use these pieces for everyday use!
I chose to add pears, so it would be in addition to the bread, crackers, and cheeses on the charcuterie board. It not only is yummy to have them but they add the perfect touch!
When we first redid this space, I purchased fabric chairs for the end of the table.. but quickly did I learn they weren’t for me. Not only did they get constantly get dirty but it was so bulky and I loved the look of these spindle chairs all around!
Now that all of this is set out, I am sure ready for a Thanksgiving meal!
Honestly it can go however you want it to go! Here we start off with bread, crackers, cheeses, meat. If your family likes olives and veggies its the perfect time to add those in! We love to add dips too, so it really just is how fancy you want to get!
I love serving a good drink along with dinner, we love all things sparkling!
When doing a table setting my biggest tip is to not make it to big where you can’t see your guests, and if it is to big make sure you can move it easily! I chose doing this vase because it works either way on the table or removed easily!
Here is a full view of this table, and its just perfect for our family and guests! If we ever need room we have our kitchen island too and now plenty of room in our front room!
I hope you enjoyed seeing how we set a simple thanksgiving table setting, if you want to see how we dressed it up last year with the turkey and all, I have a post I wrote linked. Get ready to see this space all ready for Christmas next, now do you decorate before Thanksgiving?
