Every day we gather around the table with family, sometimes friends. Once or twice a year we make that act a tradition.

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays and setting the table has become apart of that tradition for me. With the help of West Elm, gathering around the table this year will be a little more special!

It all starts with the perfect color scheme and

Mix that will a  traditional pieces like white platters and the table starts to come together.

When I decided to add my mothers goldware to the table it immediately reminded me of childhood holiday dinners that makes these moments special.

As much as I believe in something old, something new and fresh is a ways a needed at your table! After adding these salad plates from the West Elm Market the table immediate became alive and meaningful.

Finishing the table with accents like votive, cake plates, placeholders and whimsy items like these fun pinecone salt and pepper shakers from West Elm adds some interest to the table.

  6. Adore your table setting Destiny! Especially love the juxtaposition of the natural elements with the modern gold touches. Last week I ordered some cotton stems to use on our Christmas tree this year. Thought it would give it a nice pop of white. Happy to have discovered your blog. Happy Thanksgiving!

    I don’t see those black “Welcome Home” plates you used for your Thanksgiving table on West Elm. Is that only a seasonal item?
    Thank you!

  9. Are those black plates you used just a seasonal item that West Elm sells? I love those and would love to purchase some for our next Thanksgiving:)
