For each place setting, I placed a gold charger, topped with my gold rimmed china. You can get similar china here.

I used two kinds of cloth napkins-doubling them up, a copper colored organza napkin and a copper colored cloth napkin. I tucked them into a hammered copper napkin ring.

I finished the table setting off with a gorgeous faux pomegranate.

I used my vintage silverware for this table. I got them for a wedding gift and I love having them on my holiday table settings.

Doesn’t this make you giddy for Fall?

I placed this beautiful woven table runner down the middle of the table.

This runner is the perfect base for almost any table decorations.

Then I placed a vintage book at each end of the table and put a vintage urn on top.

One urn I filled with pheasant feathers, the other urn is filled with greenery.

I placed the Fall floral arrangement in the center of the table.

Please see the video below to see how I created the Perfect Table for Your Thanksgiving Feast.

Beautiful interiors don’t have to come with an outrageous price tag. My style is what I like to call Vintage French Farmhouse, I love mixing decorating styles, especially opposites like the glitz of a chandelier dripping in crystals with a chair upholstered in worn aged leather.
