Thanksgiving in a Modern Hue

I was hoping to have this post to you earlier in the month. However, I got sidetracked by some last minute events so my Thanksgiving table got delayed. I hope you enjoy the table design as much as I enjoyed putting it together.

Now for the details! I ran across these two paper patterns at Jo-Ann Fabrics and I instantly fell in love with the color combination.

I knew I wanted to do something slightly different for my table and not rely on a completely traditional palette. The gray, orange and white instantly drew me in! Here are some more photos of the final product.

The place cards are envelopes that I tied to the back of each of the chairs with a ribbon. I attached each person's name to the envelope in a cutout to match the menus. These serve a dual purpose as a place card and also as a Thanksgiving activity. Each guest is given some blank cards (one for each of the other guests). They can then write a brief little note of thanks and love to the other person and place it in their envelope (like a Valentine). At the end of the meal each person gets an envelope full of wonderful notes from their friends and/or family.
