Q. I have been actively searching the internet for affordable, stylish tablescapes for my Thanksgiving table and can find almost NOTHING.  I need help for inspiration and resources for reasonably priced, chic linens, etc.  Any advice? – Erin Barry


A. Hi Erin! Right now I’m inspired by natural colors, organic shapes & textures and a look that is rustic yet modern with a touch of glamour.  Some of my favorite places to shop for affordable tabletop finds are Target, West Elm, Ikea, Etsy, Pier 1Fishs Eddy, Williams-Sonoma and Ebay (because vintage adds so much soul & personality!). Here is a tablescape I whipped together for you that captures the rustic & refined look that I’m loving right now. It’s filled with stylish hi-low finds and I hope it inspires you this Thanksgiving!
