A Vintage Turquoise & Orange Thanksgiving

Vintage Thanksgiving in Teal & Orange

This Vintage Tablescape was created by Laurie Cinotto for a beautiful wedding featured on Once Wed and spotlighted on Hostess with the Mostess last year… but I’ve always had it in the back of my mind as the PERFECT Thanksgiving spread.

The color scheme is fantastic — and the delicate vintage feel is perfect for this fall. This tablescape would be easy to recreate with richly patterned fabric remnants, lace scraps and orange berry swags from your local craft store. Matching scrapbooking paper with filigree detail for favor boxes and placemats… as well as an assortment of various china pieces from thrift stores mixed in with your traditional place settings. It’s so lovely!

Homemade boxes filled with your favorite dessert make unique favors. For something simple and personal, cover match boxes in scrapbooking paper, lace and buttons and fill with a short note on why you’re thankful for that person.

Beautiful details: Napkins tied with lace and berries, votives lined in paper, colored tumblers that match your theme and single flower blooms scattered about. Continue reading

Modern Decorating Inspiration: Felt Embellishments

Felt Lampshade

Felt — that fuzzy material you used in fourth grade to make cut out animals & party masks — has made a beautiful come back! By it’s very DIY nature, felt is a neat texture and material to incorporate. From it’s no-hem-needed cutting capabilities to the ease of tracking it down (every craft, art or kids store in your neighborhood), you could not ask for a more versatile DIY textile.

Full House featured these two lampshade and pillow felt inspirations, I adore the delicate flowered lampshade that could be remade with a few flea market broaches. The ruffled pillows below add a whimsical touch to the room and would be so easy to create with gathered strips of felt and a quick hand stitch (from Kelly + Olive).
