I have a pretty Thanksgiving tablescape with metallics with Decoart (sponsored) to share with you today!
Our October challenge was to use their line of Dazzling Metallics paint line to help create a Thanksgiving tablescape.
I turned our table in the other direction to mix things up a bit, and I really like it this way! I’ll keep it… for a while.
I have a little decorating hint for you. Turn your table runner the other direction.There’s nothing that says it always has to go the same way!
For my Thanksgiving tablescape,
I have wooden pedestal stand that was perfect for the center. I added some faux fall leaves, and painted some faux and real mini-pumpkins with the Dazzling Metallics.
I used both Copper and Rose gold on orange pumpkins ,and it gave them a lovely warm tone with the metallic paint over the top.
I had some wood candle sticks that I added a touch of Emperor’s Gold to at the base on on the top.
I also brightened up the brown battery operated candle by brushing Copper and Silver Sage, and Champagne gold on the outside.
I love stemless my wine glasses, but I don’t like how they sit directly on the table and can leave a wine ring.
I used a wood slice with a craft store stamp and Emperor’s Gold to make stemless wineglass coasters to solve that problem. The stamp and gold makes them a bit fancier than plain wood slices.
I also used the Copper paint and some inexpensive plain, white napkins to make some hand-stamped napkins. You can add fabric medium to the paint if you are afraid of it washing out.
I love being able to add personal touches to my decor. It makes it so much more special that way.
I love that out local grocery store has such beautiful bouquets. I love adding fresh flowers to a room.
I love the contrast of copper color and the flowers, and to carry the metallic theme through the room.
I know Thanksgiving seems a long way off, but we are already making plans in our family. I am going to make an apple crumble for sure, and I just ordered our turkey.
