Comments : 12

Hi there, well here in NY,  we are in the throes of beautiful, majestic fall. The foliage is really starting to come alive, all my potted mums are suddenly bursting open and it feels official. I finally did some decorating with the gorgeous fresh magnolia sent from Weston Farms, and thought it would make a fun post. In fact, i got so inspired I decided to set my table for Thanksgiving. I set it for 12 but something tells me with the way things are going, we may just be 5. Oh well, a table for 12 looks a lot prettier than one for 5!

So don’t think I am crazy to have my Thanksgiving table set:) I know it will be really different this year, and we will not all be here but it felt great to focus on something pretty, positive and festive. I will leave it this way until Thanksgiving and we will see how many we end up being. Before you know it, I will be dragging out my Christmas tree:)

As you might know my favorite and only source for the freshest magnolia and super personalized service is Weston Farms, no one does it better! They have kindly offered a special deal to my Enchanted Home readers. If you spend $100 or more you will receive one of their beautiful magnolia bouquets (value $38) as a free gift!


And let me show you what I have been up to……

It started with these, my favorite pair of double happiness mid sized vases which we just got back in stock on Friday, I filled them with fresh magnolia branches and then added some magnolia flowers!

They were perfect for my mantle in the dining room…love them next to my pumpkins.

Set the table in pretty tones of white with jewel tones on the p late which were accented by the magnolia leaves

Here are the stunning new ornate chargers with our pagodas flatware!

And our gorgeous scalloped mini silver table lamps which add such an elegant touch to any table, makes my guests feel so special:)

Silver does it every time!! Nothing more elegant if you ask me

I love bringing out my favorite chargers and silver table lamps!

How pretty is this magnolia arrangement I made in our large silver pierced planter. It was such a perfect piece for the center of the table

Back to the mantle

I added white pumpkins, used our square scalloped chargers and pagoda flatware, and of course our silver mini table lamps are the perfect finishing touch!

Another one of my favorite charges, the elegant carved charger and our scalloped lamps. The china is old from Sadek

The pretty etched stemware is from Williams Sonoma

And experimented with the vases with magnolia on my sideboard which I really liked a lot too!

Shown here is the large pierced etched planter, my medium tulip8iere and the mid sized double happiness vase (all which just came back in stock)

Also added some to a stone urn and placed it on the chest with Weston Farms magnificent large very lifelike magnolia blooms

Last thing on my list is to get this incredible and most magnificent magnolia wreath hung on my front door! How beautiful is this! This will stay up for a few months (this wreath is called the Blue Jay)

Weston Farms sells their magnolia in many ways, my favorite wreath is above and my favorite bouquets from Weston Farms is this grouping here for $135, it includes 8  generously sized bunches which work well, literally everywhere. You can separate them or use them as instant little arrangements, so easy. It’s s a great value! I used them for my vases, for the middle of my table and even for my outdoor planters (see below) Click here to see

And then I decided to try and add them to my outdoor Provence planters with boxwoods and am smitten with the result! I love this look, and the extra layer and richness of color.

Before (one on left done)

And after with both done


I have to admit I had been feeling a little behind the 8 ball, from working so hard lately that it feels amazingly cathartic to have spent a few hours getting this all together not to mention for my house to suddenly feel so pretty and festive!!

Love your Fall arrangements and always a magnolia fan.
Your table is beautiful using your lovely table lamps. Will you carry these in gold as well? Would love to see gold or brass/bronze bases with the same shades currently.
