Jewel-toned Thanksgiving Tablescape {with free printables}

"Like a rare jewel in a tarnished setting, Thanksgiving month gleams out brightly from its dull environment of somber skies and frost-swept earth..."
--Mrs. Charles E. Cowman

Jewel tones were the inspiration for my Thanksgiving Tablescape this year.  My colors include deep purples, vibrant reds,  bright yellows and soft oranges.  I also tried to incorporate a lot of natural elements such as burlap and various tones of wood.

One of the key elements in the tablescape is this tray created from pallet wood.  The brass handles added a touch of rustic elegance to the stained wood.

Not long ago, I shared with you some Thanksgiving verses I used in my fall decor.  Well, here is the rest of the set just in time for setting the Thanksgiving table!  The set includes napkin rings, food titles, little "give thanks" flags and place card settings.  Here are a couple of sample pages from the FREE download:

In order to give the tablescape some extra depth, I put together this tiered stand using a plate and a deep dish bowl both from the dollar store.  A candle holder serves as a pedestal between the two.

To accentuate the deep purple, I made a table runner which fits just below the tray.  It is bordered with a purple fabric and then accented with ruffled burlap for a little spice.  So there you have it!

Happy Thanksgiving!!  I trust that you will have a wonderful day with your family and friends celebrating all of God's blessings!
