Thanksgiving Table

hey y'all! i hope everyone had a wonderful thanksgiving and enjoyed a break from work or just even the routine over the last few days. i know i did! so did anyone make any fun black friday/cyber monday/general sale purchases?! (btw i find all of these names of these sales SO annoying - just say it's a sale, tell me how much off, and when it starts and ends. done!) i made one fun house purchase that i'm excited about and can't wait to show.

our thanksgiving started with our microwave completely biting the dust after only two years which is infuriating!! so we found ourselves at best buy picking up a new one wedneday night. i have to say the only saving grace is that this happened during all of these sales! the other very unfortunate thing that happened is that i somehow lost my new lululemon rain jacket. i actually must have lost it about a week before but just realized it over thanksgiving. real tears were shed and i'm still hoping it will turn up. 😩  apart from all of that nonsense we had a very nice, quiet thanksgiving with my parents and we were grateful that they came to us this year. anyway! here is our table and for all of the details (i mean every last one, i've linked them all), scroll to the end.

the design of this table was based on green, black, and white palette and the key was layering. the thing i'm probably most proud of is that there is nothing in the decorative items that's over $100 and most are under $50.

i talked about this runner on my stories - it's from a company called small gunns. this is actually two 60" runners overlapped in the middle. the thin black and white stripe was exactly what i was looking for.

i layered rattan chargers, black plates, white linen napkins, and mini cheese boards that i wrapped with a piece of ribbon and topped with a sprig of rosemary.

i used a ton of eucalyptus - both the garland and the vases had fresh cut seeded eucalyptus. i'm not great at arranging flowers and the eucalyptus is easy! the garland i shipped in but the stems in the vases were from whole foods! i added a couple of white peonies to each to break up all of the green from the vase and the leaves.

my dining room definitely has a beachy vibe and to make it feel cohesive with the table, i carried the green, white, and black over to the cabinet. but i still kept the accessories fairly beachy using beads and natural materials.

since there were only six of us, i took advantage by styling the ends of the table where no one was going to sit. it made it feel more lived in and relaxed.

truth be told, i can't stand this chandelier in here. i ordered it a while ago thinking it would work but in reality it doesn't work at all. i have a replacement ordered but it didn't come in time for thanksgiving. this one could be so good in another space and it's officially for sale!

ready to shop the look? i've rounded up all of the EXACT pieces from my table. not "close alternatives" but the same things i used. and the best news of all is that many of these items are on sale!

not pictured but you can find the chandelier here:  i'm sure i've forgotten something so feel free to ask! the table is no longer available and is from restoration hardware.

on a completely unrelated note (that you may have seen on my stories), my two little guys got to skate at the boston garden during a bruins game last friday!! it was such a great time and i am just so proud of those two. i hope they always remember at least some of day and if not we have about 40 videos to show them. 😉

Beautiful. I am intrigued by what looks like a cutting board/cheese tray at each spot.
Are they used during the meal? Tradition?

Hi! Did I read right that your current dining room chandelier is for sale?! Is it still available and if so, how much are you selling it for? Thanks :)
