Set a holiday table that combines the coziness of fall with the magic of Christmas.
That is a transitional table and what I am sharing with you today.
I am excited to share all that went into this table decor.
If you are like me you’ll like to ride the holiday cusp.
You see, every year I have a hard time parting with my pumpkins.
After searching high and low for the elusive white pumpkins, lugging home Cinderellas and never able to resist a baby boo, I amass quite a patch every season.
So when Thanksgiving is over, but I am still not ready for full on Christmas, I like to ride the cusp with a transitional table.
Today I am sharing a fancy transitional table. Probably not your everyday table ~ mine either, but you can get ideas from this display to work into any type of transitional table.
I also have some very special items on this table, which I know you will love to learn about.
The stunning embroidered linen napkins are from my friend Lidy at French Garden House. Give yourself a treat & visit FGH. Both Lidy’s blog and shop are exquisite.
I will search no longer for the perfect white pumpkin, as I now have an everlasting one…and a silver & gray one to make it a trio.
The pumpkins are velvet with real stems ~ I am in love!
To create my transitional table…
I used a piece of plaid flannel from Joanne’s as my runner.
A metal basket I found in my barn when we loved in to corral the pumpkins, pinecones, string lights & moss.
The baby boos weren’t as white as I wanted them to be so I spray painted them with white chalk based paint.
A few sprigs of boxwood also got a spray – gold for them – and tucked in with the velvet pumpkins.
The little ornaments are from Restoration Hardware and were quite reasonably priced. They came as a set in a little bag.
If your pumpkins aren’t orange, I think they surely have a place on the transitional table.
All you need to do in order to ride the cusp is to keep it neutral, add a bit of metallic and a nod to both seasons/holidays.
You feeling it? I think you are riding the cusp with me already!
