The Thanksgiving Table

 First things first...
I'm very aware that Thanksgiving is over and in the blog world, everyone is sharing their Christmas homes at this point. I know I'm a little late in the game but I still wanted to share anyways. 
Our Thanksgiving table this year was rustic and simple and I love how it turned out.
I find myself describing everything as simple these days. 
Sometimes simple is best.

One thing I love about our table this year is that it easily transitioned into cozy "winter"/Advent/Christmas without changing the center piece a single bit. 
My sweet hubby screwed two boards to some smaller strips of wood for me and then I took a hammer to it and beat it up a bit before staining and waxing. 
It makes the cutest rustic (simple ha!) candle holder for the center of the table.
I layered up a scrap of plaid flannel fabric and burlap to finish it off.
I love layering things...from clothing to decor to table settings, layers are cozy.

Chalkboard tag place settings (sold in my shop- will reopen early next year), china plates, cloth napkins and woven place mats makes for one very inviting table!

So with an easy switch of dishes and maybe some evergreen clippings tucked around the candles this Thanksgiving table can effortlessly transition to Christmas. 
I like that!

As of now, we are decking our halls for Advent and Christmas and I hope to be back soon to share!
For now, bye!
