A few weeks back, we photographed new pottery for Linda Renee Pottery, my mom’s pottery business. We set a Thanksgiving table to showcase her work & it turned out so gorgeous. For Christmas I like to let greenery shine against a neutral backdrop, so for Thanksgiving, we opted for a more moody, saturated palette and I think it worked perfectly. And looking through these photos is making me miss my dark dining room walls a just little bit (RIP).

We haven’t always dressed the table up for special occasions, but I think from now on I will insist on it–it feels so special to pull out special dishes, make a beautiful floral arrangement and enjoy food together at a table that invites you to sit & stay awhile.

All of the dishes we used are from her own pottery line, and the table linens & serving utensils are mostly from H&M home. Their online selection of home decor items is so good and reasonably priced, just like their clothing (below are links for all of the pottery, table linens & decor so you can recreate something similar for yourself next week on the big day).

I’m really loving the warm tone of terra-cotta lately–it feels like a neutral while still being interesting.

These leather wrapped serving utensils are my favorite.

This view makes me miss the moody feel this room had (but I don’t miss it feeling so dark in the middle of the shortest days of the year!)


Isn’t this jade colored bowl just gorgeous?!

Large White Rippled Pitcher // Large Latte Mug // Scalloped Jade Salad Bowl // Black-dipped Wooden Salad Servers


This has me so excited for the big meal next week & scheming for Christmas. How do you like to make your holiday meals feel extra-special?
