A Southern Thanksgiving

In the South few things are held as high as tradition and family. And what's more traditional than gathering around a Thanksgiving table with family and friends to feast on the season's bounty? Inspired by my love for a classic Thanksgiving, I combined rich browns and oranges with an unexpected twist of coral and sage greens to create a picturesque Southern table. Captured by Rustic White Photography, there's a whole festive gallery just waiting for you to sift through.
Pomegranate's Aviary patterned linens, pom pom placemats and napkins were the ideal backdrop for my faux bois and gourd patterned plates, rose gold silverware, and feathered napkin rings.
I finished the tablescape with ivory candles along with fresh florals in burgundy, orange, and green.
The centerpiece, a smoked turkey (courtesy of my Big Green Egg), was presented on a monogrammed platter.
I accompanied the star of the show with side dishes like sweet potato au gratin, green bean casserole, and foccacia with chestnut stuffing.
Rounding out dinner our bar cart was lined with sweets and treats: a traditional pumpkin pie, warm red wines, and sparkling apple cider which proved to be the perfect ending to a perfect day.
