Get Ready for Thanksgiving Now with Furbish! ...Pearls of Wisdom

There are only 18 Days til Thanksgiving!  

Are you ready?  Have you...

• Prepared your guest list • Counted your place settings • Planned your Thanksgiving dinner • Ordered your turkey •  Started Cleaning the house • Made room in the fridge for leftovers! 

How do you decorate your Thanksgiving Table?
Do you keep things simple with natural elements or go all out with layers of bold color? 
Who says you have to limit Thanksgiving Table decorations to brown, green and orange?

Last week I visited Jamie Meares shop, Furbish Studios in Raleigh,NC.  Jamie is a master of the art of mixing patterns and bold colors to create interesting tables.  She offers the items featured in the table setting above in her online shop, so anyone can purchase them.

I love how she used these Jonathan Adler zebra dishes for candy corn and pumpkins by each place at the table. These are so cute and would make great favors for each guest to take home to remember the day.

I also loved this cute orange leopard dish used as a bread plate.  It's fun to think
 outside of the box for table settings isn't it?

The Countess Candelabra would make a fab centerpiece for Thanksgiving or anytime all year long.  If pink isn't your thing, change out the votives for another color.  This piece holds
16 tealights.  Wouldn't it be pretty with orange candles for Thanksgiving or red candles for Christmas?  I saw it was a pumpkin tucked in the middle too.  So cute!

I adore this tray with colorful feather art.  Wouldn't this be perfect on a bar
 or for serving drinks to your guests?

Speaking of drinks, these Gold Luxe Rocks Glasses would be festive and fun 
during the holidays and all year long.  How smart is it that each glass has a different
pattern, so your guest can keep up with their drink!

There were so many things I liked at Furbish Studios in Raleigh, NC.  If you live in Raleigh, make sure to pop in and see for yourself.  Tell Jamie I sent you!  If you don't live in Raleigh you can order everything on line here.  Click here to access Furbish's Thanksgiving page which has all kinds of great items for decorating your home for the holidays.
