Happy Wednesday and if you are stopping by from Refresh Living’s, create and share, Welcome!
Wow, Thanksgiving is literally next week….where has the year gone? I feel like time is going by so fast! At this moment all I can do is reflect on my year and count my blessings. I have so much to be thankful for, but most of all I am thankful for my family. They are my heart, my rock, my everything. I love them so much. This past year, had some hardships and a whole bunch of blessings that followed. I decided to go pro blogging, my daughter who was sick most the year is now pretty much healthy with minor problems, both my daughters are striving in school and working hard to be their best, and my son’s vocabulary has expanded and his speech improving.—I am beyond blessed! I am so HAPPY and so THANKFUL!
Since Thanksgiving is only a week a way, I decided to team up with some of my favorite bloggers for a Create and Share Thanksgiving/Harvest Tablescape blog hop. I used a combination of thrifted and new items to create this table setting. I even decided to incorporate my DIY Floral Plate Charger into the mix. I love to layer items so for my place setting I paired the floral plate chargers, with brass plate charger, a simple black plate, a patterned plate (black, white, and grey), a gold rimed white plate, and plaided napkins with a wooden napkin ring. Phew…that was a lot!
When I originally thought of putting this table together, I was inspired by my cheetah print pumpkin but once I started gathering my home decor pieces for the table…inspiration hit and I realized I had a REAL beautiful pumpkin sitting in my kitchen waiting to shine With all the craziness surrounding the holidays, I really wanted to find a simple way to add a bit of “Domicile 37” to table and break up all the “prettiness” so I decided to add a little flair to the pumpkin using…Tape! Not just any tape, but electrical tape. This project took only 5 minutes to create and no money at all….I know ridiculous, right?
1. wipe dust and dirt off of pumpkin
2. Cut tape to desired length (if using electrical tape cut longer than circumference of pumpkin because electrical tape stretches)
3. wrap tape around pumpkin, try to get it as evenly around as possible
4. For another row of stripes repeat steps 2-3
5. press tape down into the crevices of pumpkin to secure placement
*I added three rows, feel free to add as many rows as you like.
Happy early Thanksgiving! I hope you feel inspired and please hop on over to Shabby Grace Blog for more fun Thanksgiving inspiration.
