Thankfully Chic: All Things Neutral and Metallic

“Pick a theme and go with it!” they said. Those are sweet, sweet words to designers like me at Syzygy Event Productions.”

I’m obsessed with neutrals this season, so it was a given from the start what color palette I would choose. I didn’t realize how simple and fun it would be until I started to gather old Thanksgiving décor, purchase new ones, and took part in some DIY projects. I went all out; coordinating every item down to the outfits!

A Neutral Tablescape: In order to take your traditional Thanksgiving décor and turn it into a chic and elegant holiday display for your table, follow these three simple tips:

  • Create a focal point: use a combination of gold, white, and neutral colored props and accessories.
  • Search for the perfect white pumpkin! Drive to your local market or craft store to purchase these natural or faux beauties.
  • Mix in some metallic colored chargers, silver/gold toned placemats, and rustic candleholders to add a touch of glam and sparkle.
  • Have fun with it!

Set your table with neutral colored items; add a pop of sparkle and metallics.

Personalized Pumpkins: Make those pumpkins shine! Use gems, spray paints, and glitter to add ambiance and personality to your Thanksgiving centerpieces and accessories.

Thankful Pumpkins: A great family activity can turn into a new family tradition. Have everyone create their own thankful pumpkin or make one for the entire family. Each member can take a moment to write a special message or what they’re simply thankful for this year. A simple yet meaningful way to highlight the true meaning of this holiday!

Custom Backdrops: Whether you buy it online or create it yourself, burlap garlands make for a beautiful backdrop. It’s a simple way to add a custom piece to your festive décor. Go to your local craft store like Michael’s to purchase a burlap garland, spray paint, and stencils. The selections are endless! Grab a fun stencil and fabric spray paint to ensure the perfect visual effect.

Festive Drinks: During my recent trip to Nashville, I came across the most refreshing drink. It’s called, the FALL O’THE WHISKEY. By far the best cocktail in town! Take some of your favorite bourbon, and then add a splash of peach purée, and top with a sprinkle of cinnamon. The perfect cocktail for your Thanksgiving Dinner!
