Dark wooden table adorned with large pumpkins running down the middle, full place settings, lit candles and metallic geometric objects

Autumn in Missouri is beautiful. As the days shorten and the nights cool, the season offers ample opportunity for inspiration. This “Friendsgiving” tablescape embraces a cooler palate of dusty-green eucalyptus and storybook pumpkins offering pops of ivory. Vintage brass candlesticks and brass objects showcased by flickering light add cozy warmth to the evening. Your Thanksgiving and Christmas gatherings, or any party for that matter, deserve to be beautiful. Tablescapes and party decor, just like any other design project, are all about details and layers. Create interest by artfully layering pieces that draw your guests in; they feel welcome and intrigued. Thoughtful design allows an easy transition from one holiday to the next. Invest in core pieces like candles, embellished salad plates, neutral linens, and vintage glassware, then pair them with inexpensive seasonal items to easily transition from holiday to holiday.
