You may have noticed I haven’t yet refreshed my dining area as planned.

My usual design paralysis took hold, and I couldn’t stop thinking about Thanksgiving. What do the holidays have to do with home design? Well, everything.

The more I thought about it, the more I couldn’t come up with a wallpaper and concept that I was confident I’d love year round. As it turns out, I’m content with my minimalist dining area for now, and I think it really shines when I decorate for a gathering.

I decided to set the table for an inexpensive and easy, but glam fall meal.

I set the table with items I already had on hand: some gold chargers, white dishes, and leftover white pumpkins from Halloween.

I then added eucalyptus branches and pretty fall florals to add a pretty pop.

I wanted to take my own dishes up a notch, so I decided to customize my inexpensive white dishes with permanent oil marker and baked them in the oven to set. While I double checked that the technique I used is supposed to be food safe, I still just applied it  to the edges.Affordable and Chic Thanksgiving Decor | Five Marigolds

To glam up my goblets, flower vase and juice glasses (repurposed as votives), I applied some pretty glitter tape. In just minutes, I had custom elements thanks to this Scotch® Expressions Glitter Tape in Gold and Platinum.

One of the things I love most about this decor is that it can easily be customized for every season. For Christmas, I’m thinking of swapping the pumpkins for pomegranates and cinnamon sticks. For spring: citrus fruits and spring blossoms.
Whatever the season, you’ll find even more easy, inexpensive seasonal inspiration to be hands-on with Scotch™ Brand here.
