Thanksgiving is only a few days away so for today’s table I could not help but be inspired by the upcoming holiday. Thanksgiving Day is like the ultimate Sunday dinner even though it’s on a Thursday. The entire day is dedicated to spending time with family and friends, around the dinner table, with an outrageous amount food, and at my house, a festive tablescape is also a must.

Now, just because there is an abundance of food on this day it doesn’t mean that your decorations have to also be over the top. A simple display of glassware and bitter sweet is all you need to set your table, and the tone, for this special time with family and friends. For added fun, we placed pumpkins around the base of our display and just like that—your Thanksgiving tablescape is complete!

Happy Early Thanksgiving! Eat lots of turkey and give lots of hugs!

Sunday, in a biblical sense, is meant to be a day of rest. For some, Sunday means waking up early for church followed by a relaxing afternoon, enjoying a delicious meal with family and friends. For others, Sunday means sleeping-in one last time before Monday morning sounds its inevitable alarm. Some people have to work on Sundays and other people view Sunday as nothing more than another day of the week. However, for me, Sundays are a significant day—the beginning of one week and the end of another. In my opinion, Sundays should most definitely be spent relaxing but also spent reflecting on all of the accomplishments from the week before and the goals and aspirations for the week ahead. It’s important to take inventory of your life, to celebrate the good and to improve upon the bad.

I also enjoy having a big, Sunday dinner with family and friends. Sundays are the perfect excuse to get together with loved ones, celebrating each other’s lives. For me, this means finding new ways to decorate my table each week. I know what you’re thinking—There is no way I am going to spend time and money on a different tablescape every single week! While I thoroughly enjoy the time spent designing centerpieces and arranging tablescapes, I understand that not everyone shares this passion. My goal is to show you a variety of simple, cost-effective ways to create tablescapes for those rare, special occasions or, if you’re feeling ambitious, for your very own Sunday’s table.

Sometimes, a simple centerpiece makes all the difference and this Sunday’s Table is about as simple as it gets. Find a container, something you already have lying around the house, and then fill it with heirloom pumpkins and tomatoes from your garden. Don’t let words like “decorate” or “design” fool you; sometimes it’s just that easy! Now you have a simply stunning centerpiece for any and every occasion this fall.
