Hi friends! Today I’ve joined twelve talented bloggers and together we are sharing some holiday table-scape ideas that will hopefully inspire you as we enter this busy yet exciting season. 

But first – I have a funny story to share. I ALMOST pulled out of this table-scape blog hop because…we were without a dining room table!! Ha!

My husband built our old table and bench 6 years ago and surprised me on Christmas Eve. We got home from my in laws and there it was, sitting in our dining room. Mike asked some family members to sneak it in the house for me while we were at his parents’ house that night, and I was completely shocked. I had NO idea it was coming!

I loved that table and honestly there was nothing wrong with it, but over the years Mike’s tool collection grew and he learned a lot more about wood working. He constantly made comments in reference to our table about how he “would have done this different and that different”, and he finally asked me one day if he could just build a new one. 

So on a whim I decided to list our old table on Facebook marketplace. If you follow me on Instagram, you already know the whole story. I woke up to 6 offers and within a day someone was at our house picking it up!

We weren’t expecting that at all, and I figured we’d be having picnics on the floor for a while. My sweet husband must have been excited to build a new one though, because that very night we already had a gorgeous table sitting in our dining room (you’ll see sneak peeks throughout this post)!

I am so in love with it and I can’t wait to share the plans with you and all the details! But for now it sits in our dining room unfinished, waiting for stain. I recently filled all the cracks and holes with wood filler and just as I was messaging Bre to tell her I had to pull out of this hop, a thought hit me. 


A canvas drop cloth is the perfect backdrop to this simple thanksgiving table

I threw some canvas drop cloths on my table and went to work looking for what I ALREADY had. 

Yes, I realize we still don’t have a bench or chairs in this blog post. Hopefully you can visualize, haha! My husband should be building the bench this weekend.

But this is so important to remember when you’re hosting friends or family.

You don’t need to spend tons of money to create a beautiful table. Look for things you already have!

Table-scape elements: pears, white pumpkins, eucalyptus and brass

Like I said, I began with a canvas drop cloth for my table. Nothing fancy, but it was the perfect backdrop for my centerpiece.

Brass candlesticks with green candles add height to my fall table setting

I went thrifting last week and found the prettiest brass candlesticks at just a dollar each. I also scored some beautiful, deep green candles, each just 50 cents. I love the warmth that brass adds, especially during the holiday season. The mixture of the green and brass together was so beautiful to me, so I placed the candles on the table and continued on with that theme.

I opened the fridge to discover a few bags of pears I had purchased for the kids. I loved the idea of using fruit as my centerpiece, especially fruit that’s in season.

I wanted to tie the candles to the centerpiece, so I laid some (faux) seeded eucalyptus stems down the center of table and placed the pears throughout. I also gathered the white pumpkins I had throughout my home and mixed those in as well.

I wanted the focus to be on the centerpiece, so I chose simple white dishes and clear glassware.

I don’t have brass silverware so I had to make due with what I had and mix metals. Honestly though, I think brass and silver pairs well during the holidays.

I kept things minimal on the buffet but continued the table scape theme using pears, white pumpkins and eucalyptus.

A small tip – I see glass cake stands at thrift stores all the time, and they are so perfect for bringing height to your table or buffet!

I was a little nervous to share our unfinished dining space today, especially among so many talented bloggers. But my hope is that you can be encouraged and inspired to create a beautiful table of your own without spending a lot of money.

Next time you’re at the grocery store buying fruit, maybe you’ll think of me and use it for more than just an afternoon snack! 🙂
