For Thanksgiving brunch, relax the rules and plan a get-together that's a little less traditional. Set your table with a mix of modern and rustic details. Vintage-inspired chairs, cutting boards used as chargers and plates, and galvanized buckets as candleholders will all add to the beauty of your harvest table.
To create this look, search your favorite vintage stores for glassware and dessert plates with pink or gold detailing. Use a basic white dinner plate on the bottom of every place setting. Top it with a geometric napkin (these are made from fabric purchased from Quadrille, Inc.) and the vintage plates. Repurpose the printable invitations as menu cards to top off each place setting.
Casual Table Settings and Pink Tulips
