harvest tables


My apologies for the break in posts. I came down with some flu-like bug this past week and it’s been rather energy draining!
At any rate, here is my harvest table setting for this thanksgiving. I decided to stick with a lot of neutrals to keep it simple and uncluttered. Sometimes you just don’t want to have too many elements on a table or it starts to feel messy!I started with a pretty check runner from Pottery Barn, layered it with the place mats, and then focused on a very simplistic center piece of candles. My favorite little feature is the dried artichokes in a wooden box. These ones are from Pottery Barn but I discovered that I can in fact make my own! I have some artichokes left over from the garden this year so I plan on drying them. Keep your eyes open for a tutorial on that one!

The other thing I have to mention is this gorgeous reclaimed wood table that my dad recently built. The hubby and I recently started talking about making our own table because our current one is just a little too small. I adore all the reclaimed wood furniture out there but I’m just not willing to pay $3000 for one from Anthropologie or Pottery Barn, so we decided to keep our eyes open for some wood. Sure enough, we came across a beautiful old wooden barn being torn down. After the approaching the owners, they agreed to give us any wood we could find for a very reasonable price. My parents caught wind of this and my mom decided she would love a big harvest table! After going back for more wood, my dad created this beautiful table. Justin and I are planning to build our table something this fall, and while it won’t be nearly this big, I’m very excited about the possibility!

    This table is beautiful, and would love to have one like this. I love the big beefy legs and some look of it, and was wondering if you have the plans for this exact table? Thank You for your time and response….
