Thanksgiving In The Woods

“Over the river and through the woods…”

Nothing or anyone is ordinary. There’s beauty and imagination everywhere, and we believe one of the most prized attributes of ourselves as creators is the ability to come up with a truly unique idea. Here at Sparkle + Toast HQ, we are always trying to push ourselves to be different, but still relevant and relatable. However, every so often, we come up with something that we do just for ourselves because we want to do it, because the idea swirls so feverishly in our brains that we need to release it into the world, because we can’t live without a little magic and neither should you.

This year for our Thanksgiving table, we are going deep into the woods where storybook tales come to life, whimsical creatures come out to play . . . and, let’s be honest, our collection of Anthropologie dishes and glassware is so special it needs to be shown off! We hope you enjoy our interpretation of Thanksgiving on the table this year: “A Whimsical Woodland Feast” fit for humans and fairies alike 🙂

We have been very fortunate to have had the chance to collect (as well as been gifted) these beautiful plates from Anthropologie. Each one is like a work of art. Our glassware is also from Anthropologie, THE MOTHERSHIP, and we think the mixture of patterns, colors, and textures on the table adds to the appeal. Sometimes more is more 😉

We found these adorable little woodland figurines at Target in the ornament section! The moss runner and bright green moss were discovered at our local craft store, Jo-Ann’s.

Chesnuts and whole walnuts found a perfect home in our pretty vintage mushroom nut dish (from Michael Aram, similar found here). We also scattered some of the nuts on the runner, as well as mini pinecones, little crab apples, some plastic fruit, and tiny pumpkins.

We’re suckers for anything miniature. These tiny mushrooms were actually made for fairy garden kits, and were found at Michaels.

We opted for one large floral arrangement at the center of the table, and let Trader Joe’s do all the heavy lifting. We scooped up this beautiful bouquet for around $10!

Me oh My! We sure do love tealights. We will always and forever top off a dinner party table with candlelight 🙂

Flocked bottle brush trees gave us a chance to express the idea of winter and the holiday season into our table.

For place cards, we made mini moss-covered clay pots filled with homemade candied pecans. They are the perfect snack to munch on before the feast, or something sweet to take home.
