Step 7 : Select your embellishments and details.

Teresa from Posh Petals Miami and I are hopeful that below you find some inspiration to bring into your home. This Thanksgiving she is offering a Eucalyptus Garland and a Magnolia Garland. Both are absolutely beautiful and make a striking dining tablescape base.
We decided to style both garlands in a variety of ways. We were mindful that we all have different tastes and goals for our gatherings. Our goal was to create tablescapes that are simple to recreate. Most and similar items used will be linked in LIKEtoKNOW.it.
First, we grabbed a simple gray tablecloth as the base. We used some orange pumpkin pillar candles and a blessings sign as the embellishments/details.
For the place settings, we kept it very simple and "laid back". We grabbed some disposable "Happy Harvest Truck" plates from Hobby Lobby and placed them on top of rustic charger plates (previously purchased at Michaels).
Then, we moved on to a more contemporary relaxed look. We kept the gray tablecloth as the base. The gold taper candle holders with navy taper candles made for the perfect embellishments/details.
If you want to add an extra touch. White pumpkins give the perfect accent. We loved how it tied in the tablescape for a simple yet elegant look.
For the place settings, we used once again the disposable "Happy Harvest Truck" plates from Hobby Lobby on the rustic charger plates.
We moved onto the magnolia garland. Which is a personal favorite. I will definitely be placing my order for our family Thanksgiving dinner.
For the first look, we kept it very simple and clean. We used the magnolia garland with the gold taper candle holders and navy taper candles. We changed the tablecloth to a gold beige.
We added some Crate and Barrel white dinner plates to our rustic charger plates.
You can level up this look by adding some satin napkins to the white dinner plates and topping it off with a white pumpkin. This makes for the perfectly paired place setting.
Some glassware gives it a nice elegant detail.
For our final look we swapped out the tablecloth to a plaid.
We also swapped out the taper candle holders for some ceramic white ones. (I love how these can go with so many different seasons). We also added some orange taper candles as part of the details.
For the place settings, we kept the white dinner plates. We laid the napkins nicely between the dinner plate and the charger plate.
The pumpkins were a perfect embellishment.
For a more formal setup, the glassware ties it all in.
We had so much fun creating these looks and hope that it offered you some inspiration. We would love to know which was your favorite look! Leave us a comment with your thoughts.
