Macy’s Day Parade Tablescape

Macy's Day Parade Tablescape-8What are some of your Thanksgiving traditions? Maybe you go on a Turkey Trot the morning of Halloween. Perhaps you see a movie in the evening? I know a lot of people who watch way too much football 😉 One particular tradition beloved at the Lars Studio is watching the Macy’s Day Parade on the morning of Thanksgiving. The floats, the music, the dancing, it’s all so magical! As the cooking and baking preparations are well underway, we watch the parade march past Central Park and there is nothing better! Nostalgia at its finest, that’s what the holidays are all about, right? So we bottled up our love for that tradition and created this Macy’s Day Parade Tablescape for our monthly tablescape series complete with taxi car place cards! Say hello to your new Thanksgiving tradition.

See how to create the full tablescape after the jump!

Friendsgiving Printables

Friendsgiving PrintablesThanksgiving is in 3 weeks! If you’re on the ball, that means you’re probably already working on a menu and planning for the great feast. For the rest of us, we’re just hoping that we get invited to that house! Thanksgiving is traditionally spent with family and loved ones. People travel far and wide to join together to eat, drink, and be merry. Though perhaps you can’t get work off or don’t have the time or money to travel. Enter: Friendsgiving! Friendsgiving is a version of Thanksgiving but rather than family members, it’s your friends that compile the guest list. I love Friendsgiving because it’s the perfect excuse to reconnect with friends and enjoy a delicious dinner party. Where’s the bad?

Thanksgiving Tablescape

Thanksgiving Tablescape

This post is in partnership with World Market. All opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that allow The House That Lars Built to keep creating original content!

I often feel that Thanksgiving can get swallowed up in the midst of Halloween and Christmas celebrations. We go from Halloween candy on the shelves straight to Christmas trees in the shopping aisles! Thanksgiving can get lost in the mix! And although Thanksgiving is not commonly celebrated with tons of decorations or loads of candy, it is one of my most favorite holidays. A day dedicated to spending time with those you love most, expressing gratitude, and making and eating delicious food. What more do you need? Oh, I know: a gorgeous Thanksgiving tablescape to plan the day around!

Thanksgiving Tablescape

In all honesty, this is one of my favorite tablescapes we’ve ever done. It’s just so stunning! World Market provided the most lovely options to create our turkey-themed setting. I loved using a more untraditional color palette for Thanksgiving. And that flower arrangement was made completely from foraged blossoms and greens by the talented Allison Baddley of La Fete Floral. It’s absolutely dreamy with that golden fern! With a tablescape like this, there’s no way Thanksgiving could get lost in the mix.

Take a closer look at all the elements to create your own gorgeous tablescape for the holidays!

DIY Printable leftover Pie Boxes

Leftover Pie Box Printable

If you haven’t gathered yet, we like pie over here. All the pies! The more the merrier! Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately?), my eyes are often bigger than my stomach, which means there is almost always leftover pie on Thanksgiving. That poor forlorn pie, right? Well, we have the solution so no pie gets left behind! We created these DIY printable pie slice boxes for your thanksgiving festivities so you can easily take home those leftovers. Whether you use them as an adorable upgrade for tupperware, or as thank you gifts or favors following the feast, your guests will love these! Each box fits one slice, which might encourage portion control for some… As for me? It’s the perfect excuse to snag a few different flavors! Simply download the file and follow assembly instructions. There are designs for pumpkin, pecan, cherry, and apple. Let them eat pie!
