I’m excited to present our November Tracery Interiors style session! Paige and I decided to have some fun and style a Thanksgiving table three different ways.
Our theme was ORGANIC. We’ll show the three different styles and give you simple steps on how to put each look together. We’ll also share some inexpensive styling tricks by using natural elements from your own yard. Of course all of the other pretty details can be purchased from Tracery. ; ) Here we go…
Style #1: AMBIENT ORGANIC
This look is perfect for a Thanksgiving dinner in the evening hours, as the glass and iron votives create an ambience of soft textures and moody lighting around all of the deep oranges and chocolate browns. I love how Paige dotted these dried artichokes around the gourd centerpiece. Look at all of this movement and shape.
– Large container with gourds and pumpkins naturally arranged. This is easy, fast and fun and can all be found at your grocery store.
– Votives, dried artichokes and place mats all from Tracery. Contact them here.
Throughout the post, you’ll notice we used these fabulous placemats in each of our looks. They are a MUST and well-priced at $43 for the set. I love that each placemat is a double layer of burlap, so it feels more substantial. Contact Tracery to get your own set. Vanity Fair just featured Tracery and these placemats in their current issue!

Style #2: LAYERED ORGANIC
This table setting has more layers to it, including inexpensive burlap, sticks from your yard and some other lovelies. Here is a quick helper on how to layer up this grouping…
– For added texture, we used a hurricane glass with sticks in the bottom and just plopped a candle on top. MOM ALERT: This is a great project to do with young ones, especially busy little boys…they love going on a “stick hunt” in the yard or park and are qualified experts in snapping them in half. It’s the one table setting project they really can’t mess up!

Style #3: SIMPLE ORGANIC
This is a great look for those of you who like a more mod table setting, yet still want to maintain texture and color. We lined up two long metal baskets and fill them with pumpkins and artichokes. Those perfectly adorable vintage plates belong to Paige.
You can knock out this centerpiece literally in seconds. Now that’s my kind of project!
