Thanksgiving Home

Create a warm, welcoming home for fall and Thanksgiving with some of our favourite decor, tabletop and serving pieces. It’s the time of year to celebrate how thankful we are for each other, and often that means coming together with family and friends. Modern Accents has everything you will need to create that cozy and modern fall ambiance for your guests, and set a Thanksgiving table where you can enjoy all the blessings of the local harvest.

A modern take on the harvest is manifested in these decorative gourds/pumpkins in white. They have a wonderful texture thanks to the leather they are made of and we also love the metal stem/leaf and vine details at the top. They would be a dramatic addition to any tablescape, or as seen here, they are stunning as accents among your other favourite home decor pieces.

We also have to mention this amazing serving bowl reminiscent of a birds next or basket. What a great Thanksgiving serving piece.

Speaking of harvest. An Okanagan fall would not be complete without some apples of course. These apples in black and white are a fun way to accessorize your tablesetting.

Extra guests means having a few extra spots for drinks or appetizers. These stump side tables in white could be the perfect solution and are a subtle way to bring a natural element into your space.

Another option is a gorgeous ottoman with a serving tray. An ottoman can do double duty as extra seating as well, or simply as another surface to display your fall decor pieces.

A drink cart is another must have it you love to entertain or just need a beautiful spot to display your favourite drinkware and modern accents. We love that you can move it around easily and swap out your accents each season.

We would love to highlight that the cart below uses a combination of metal accents and acrylic, so as well as being stunning, it is also lightweight. This makes it even more versatile and easy to move around. A couple other amazing serving tray options are shown here too. It is also worth noting that we do have a coordinating console table in the acrylic and gold.

Fall and Thanksgiving also brings to mind the colours and textures of the earth. This is a great opportunity to celebrate all the rich textures and warm hues that mother nature provides in your tabletop decor.

We can help you pull together these similar hues and textures into a table setting you will be thankful for come Thanksgiving. Think layers of texture and don’t go with just one placemat when you can layer two or more to create an organic, dynamic look. The bonus, here too, is that your menu will look spectacular on this Lagoa dinnerware from Costa Nova.

Don’t forget the details that will make your setting memorable for your guests like the wooden beads, beautiful napkin holders and even the textured fabric napkins in a coordinating hue.

Another direction you could go with your Thanksgiving tablescape is a little more golden. Isn’t the light in the autumn a little more gold after all?!? Our surfaces here are a little more sleek and shiny, but still pull together a luxurious collection of textures.

Our shout out to the fall theme comes in the addition of these gold sunflower accent plates.

The elegant details don’t stop at the sunflower plates though. The overall impact of the setting is achieved with so many fine details like the gold embellished linen napkins and beaded napkin rings as well as these great cheese knives in white with gold polka dots.

All the accessories and serving pieces like this glass bowl with golden rings, black marble and gold cheese board and nature inspired cheese knife set are carefully selected to complete the look. Even the birds in white and gold have a place in styling this table. There is even more, but we invite you to come in to the store to really take it all in.

We also want to share with you a few additional serving pieces that just might work for your perfect Thanksgiving or other fall gathering.

We will finish with all the best fall wishes for all of you and a thank you for allowing us to inspire you with home and table styling ideas. We are so thankful for all our clients and followers and the opportunity to do what we love. Happy Thanksgiving!
