If I’m being honest I am REALLY excited for the holiday season this year. It’s sort of unlike me, I normally don’t really go crazy for the holidays, Craig and I have never even had a a tree, but this year feels different. I think because it’s the first time we’re celebrating the holidays in our home, and the first time we’re hosting Thanksgiving (gulp). When we set out to create this tablescape yesterday the goal was to keep it simple. This is definitely something you can re-create at home. And you really don’t have to go out and spend a ton of money to do this. We used a combination of old and new. I wanted a rustic look but also cozy and minimal.

While this is great inspiration for Thanksgiving, I didn’t want this to be specifically geared toward any one holiday but rather versatile enough for any festive occasion. Read on for some tips on how to achieve this look for your next dinner party and for more inspiration I recommend checking out the Thanksgiving tablescape we shared from last year which was very different but just as beautiful. You can find links to everything we used in the “Shop the Post” to the right. A HUGE thank you to Kim from Greenlion for making us the most stunning wreath and providing the greenery for the table. If you’re local Kim does an awesome wreath workshop every year (Caylin did it last year and her wreath was stunning). You can sign up for the workshop here.
It has been two years since we finished converting our garage into a bedroom and bathroom. I remember when we bought the house and one of the first things Craig said was that we should turn the garage into living…
