Thanks, Jen!

back in the day when I shared these florals and didn't want to spill the beans on the rest of the mock-up table I did for my client's Thanksgiving table? Seems like only 2 weeks ago...

Well, Jen said to feel free to share with everyone as her guests didn't read my blog. Remind me to have words with her about that after the holiday is over.

In the meantime, here are a few photos that I sent Jen for approval. Jen wanted a mix of elegant and candles with a rustic twist. I think this fits the bill. (P.S. She loves. Yay!)

Keep in mind this was a mock-up so thing like trimming the burlap on the chairs, adding more leaves and such will be fine tuned in real life. Also, my husband likes to note than Jen's table will be wider than this and there will be additional glasses, etc.

Jen's family has sent in something for which they are thankful and I will incorporate those into the rust colored placecards on each plate. I did a quickie mock-up for a sample on the one plate you see here. (click photos to view larger)

Lastly, a few extra close-ups of some touches. A leaf hole punch was used on some autumn colored paisley scrapbook paper and will be affixed to the placecards, silverware bundles and bottom of the wine glasses.

Those are the highlights. I hope that gives you some ideas for your Thanksgiving table and that you have a wonderful holiday with your loved ones.
