Every year my husband and I throw a Friendsgiving for all of our closest friends. I think we might be going on our 12th year now (wow!). I like to start thinking about table decor early, so when it’s time, I can worry more about food prep and less about decor 😉 I partnered with World Market and went though a little trial run this week. They’re always my first stop for entertaining essentials and decor. You just can’t beat their selection and prices!
I decided to map out a few different looks using the same color scheme. I used a gray buffalo check plaid on the table and mixed it with some white and gray dinnerware. I love how gray is kind of a non-traditional color to use for fall. It really gives the table a more updated look. And isn’t it funny how mixing around the accessories can give the table a different feel? Also a huge factor in tabletop decor? The florals. The gorgeous flowers I used today are from my favorite local floral designer Freya Prowe from Brother & Sisters Flowers.
Take a look at the different table setups below and let me know what you think! Which one is your favorite?
And there you have it! My three different yet similar friendsgiving looks 😉 Which one would you guys go with? Have you ever had a friendsgiving dinner before? I think it’s my husband’s excuse to get more turkey 😉 A huge big thank you to Freya from Brother & Sisters Flowers for her amazing artistry and last minute prowess!

LOVE Look #1. I think it’s the most cohesive look because the white pumpkin center piece with the white flowers ties in with the pumpkins in the dishes. ALSO, I love reading your blog!
Thanks so much Michelle! I think that one’s my fave too 😉

These are all so lovely! I think if I had to pick one, I would go with three. I love the different textures with the placemats, I also love the bunting on the mirror. One and two are also beautiful. 🙂

I love the white and grey! Such a different choice from the traditional fall colors. And those little white pumpkins really pop against the grey bowls.

This is stunning I love the idea of using the white pumpkins. The whole table setting is stunning!
I have friends over but never done anything as fancy as setting up the table lol but they all look amazing.
I like the idea of friendsgiving. It just shows we Have so much to give and we value relationship more Than others.
Where did you purchase the GATher banner? I love it!

Great idea about naming “Friendsgiving” instead of “Thanksgiving”! Your dining room including table settings looks so beautiful colors! 🙂

Aside from this beautiful presentation, I can’t help but feel that I have to copy that “Friendsgiving” idea for my own circle! I like the placemats, they go well with giving the table a cozy approach.
