A Metallic Thanksgiving Tablescape

This is my absolute favorite time of year- there’s a chill in the air with the perpetual familiar scent of a fire burning somewhere in the distance, the leaves on the trees are exploding in vibrant fall colors, and we are all starting to make holiday plans with loved ones. Whether you are planning an intimate gathering with only your closest family and friends or you’ve decided to celebrate with every single one of your Facebook friends this year, the holiday decor trends are sure to not disappoint. 

I’ve been slightly obsessed with metallics for sometime now, which is a trend that has been around for several seasons and is showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon- especially the warmer copper, bronze and rose tones. I love how versatile decorating with them is. Not only does adding pops of metallics into your decor add an element of surprise, it also gives you a reason to break out those copper Moscow Mule mugs (not that you needed one)!

Try spray painting natural elements like fallen leaves, pumpkins and pinecones to incorporate into your tablescapeI also love the idea of spray painting paper lanterns with your favorite metallics and hanging them above your table. They are inexpensive, lightweight and easy to instal for a really wow focal point above your holiday table.For added interest you can experiment with ombre effects or adding patterns like stripes. Or perhaps something Pollock inspired if that’s more suited to your talents. Just have fun with it!

Don’t be afraid to incorporate your favorite fall color into the mix either. One of the best things about metallics, is that they are so versatile and can seamlessly pair with virtually any pop of color. I’m loving the softer hues this fall like mossy greens, warm whites and moody blues. They are both sophisticated and unexpected.

However you choose to decorate this Thanksgiving, we at Silver Lining Design Group wish you all a very happy holiday. Cheers!
