I am so excited to be bringing in a guest party feature post for all of you today! Please welcome Jenn, as she has some beautiful Thanksgiving al fresco settings that are full of inspiration!
Hi everyone! My name is Jenn and I write for Arcadian Lighting, a website and blog that profiles top lighting trends from across the globe. Every day I get to write about home decor and interior design, and one of my favourite things to read about are light fixtures - I love chandeliers, modern lighting, and more. I also love stumbling upon inspiring blogs like Cherry Blossoms - I've had it bookmarked forever and was so excited to find out I'd get to write a guest blog for Heidi. Thanks for having me - enjoy! The holidays are upon us once again, and there's no better place to give thanks than outdoor among the beauty of Mother Nature. With pretty seasonal decor and a few outdoor lights to set the mood, enjoying Thanksgiving al fresco, beneath the trees or stars, is a cozy and intimate way of sharing a meal with loved ones. Here are eight sensational Thanksgiving al fresco settings.
A table dressed in beiges and browns is in keeping with the outdoors, while herb centrepieces provide both natural beauty and fresh seasonings to the meal.
Vibrant hanging ceiling lights illuminate this Thanksgiving alfresco dinner table, which also features a bevy of blooms and antique plates with a floral motif.
Give thanks for outdoor wicker that resembles indoor chairs, lanterns that cast a soft glow, and lavender that looks pretty and smells fragrant.
One of the best things about Thanksgiving alfresco dining is the playfulness that lighting can create, like this pergola with a string of round bulbs and an elegant hanging lantern - it's time to celebrate early evenings!
Alfresco table settings should draw on the natural beauty around them, like this Thanksgiving table, which is accented in lavender to match the surrounding blossoms.
Take advantage of the bounties of autumn by incorporating pumpkins, gourds, and other fall-friendly accoutrements. Add a touch of sophistication to the setting by placing such items on pretty cake stands.
What Thanksgiving alfresco setting would be complete without the picturesque foliage of autumn as the backdrop? No light fixture needed here - just the setting sun and a few pillar candles.
This table setting strays from the conventional orange pumpkins and instead opts for orange clementines and floral arrangements, which keep things fresh and still really beautiful. Autumn is one of the most gorgeous seasons, and what better way to enjoy it than dining outdoors?
