Gold DIY Place Cards & Thanksgiving Tablescape

Pretty ideas for Thanksgiving tablescape with gold touches

Hi friends! Michaela here again to share with you my monthly entertaining ideas. It’s mid-November– say what?!– and Thanksgiving is right around the corner. I wanted to give you a simple tablescape idea for Thanksgiving dinner, along with the easiest DIY place cards to add that special touch to the table top.

Materials: Mini canvases (found at Michael’s), black marker, gold paint, paint brush.

Step 1: Write the names on your mini canvases. Let dry.

Step 2: Using gold paint, lightly stroke the brush across the canvas, adding just a touch of gold on top of the lettering.

I just leaned these adorable canvas-turned-name-card up against an ivory pumpkin. I think ivory and white pumpkins are classic, and can definitely last without looking too Halloween, all the way through Thanksgiving.

For the tablescape, I put down a new gold runner, collected pretty candlestick holders, fall colored candles, larger pumpkins for the center of the table that I spray painted a metallic gold/silver color, natural looking placemats, china, a wine glass and pretty gold goblet (complete with an orange straw for sipping!), gold flatware, and a cloth napkin.

Most of these goods were found from around my home, which proves it really is that simple :) Since both gold and silver are “in” this year, don’t be afraid to mix metallics, creating a sparkly table for your guests. I hope this post put you in the mood for a little Thanksgiving decorating!

DIY Glittery Snow Candle

DIY glittery snow candle

Once upon a time, a million years ago, I shared an idea about how to make your own “snow” for mason jars and how to use the snow for glittery candles. I had made those mason jars with “snow” for years and years before blogging. When I featured the mason jars, they were a big hit, even without Pinterest! The jars have been duplicated so many times since then on the internet and I still think they are adorable. And I still use them to decorate with!

You can see the mason jar and candle post here. They are cute all year round!

In that post, I had shared about an idea I had seen to make glittery candles out of the “snow.” It took me a few years to get around to actually making the candles myself, but today in a moment of craftiness, I made one today!

I updated the old post with the new craft, but I thought I might as well share it here, too.

All you do for the frosty effect is roll the candle in Mod Podge and then Epsom Salts.

How easy is that? And FUN to make, too!
