Eclectic Thanksgiving Tour at Primitive & Proper

Blogger Stylin Home Tour Thanksgiving Edition (featuring Relish Decor)

Happy Tuesday!  If you are coming here from Brittany Makes, welcome!  (And if you haven’t come from there, make sure you head over there to check out Brittany’s Thanksgiving ready home!)  And to start the entire tour from the beginning head on over to Lindsay’s!


Yesterday I shared my Thanksgiving table with you, and today I am sharing another version (set by the talented Hallie of Relish Decor) along with the rest of my home dressed for Thanksgiving as part of the #BloggerStylinHomeTours Thanksgiving edition! (Warning- ridiculous amount of pictures ahead!)

Eclectic Thanksgiving Tour at Primitive & Proper

Before I show you the inside, I want to share some simple touches I’ve added to the porch.

By our front door, I added some branches clipped from a tree in the yard, filled a birdcage with gourds, and added a bull skull I picked up from one of Sweet Clover‘s vendors.  It has faded tribal painting on it, which I thought was neat.Fall Porch with natural touches, and bull skull on window frame

The branches are my favorite element- I love using natural pieces, especially when they are as pretty and colorful as these!  I placed them in a vintage metal bucket I picked up years ago at an antique market.

On the other side of the porch is an outdoor eating area.  This time of year, we don’t use it much for eating as it’s just too cold and windy, but I like to at least make it look welcoming to guests. (Also, that is a bird feeder my kids made with a pinecone; just wanted you to know it’s not a flying turd).  I layered a vintage plaid blanket with a mexican blanket, and added more gourds and my pumpkin candelabra.

Now let’s head inside to the living room….

I added my pom pom garland made by my bestie (and available  in her etsy shop) and a garland I made with glittered feathers.  I decorated the feathers for Christmas last year, and this year created a garland based on the one Summer made.  I love the look of multiple garlands!

On the mantle, I’ve mixed in vintage books, brass, feathers, antlers, white pumpkins, and my gold leafed bottles.

The chalkboard above the desk in the corner of the living room always gets updated with the change of seasons.  This time around I’ve listed some of my favorite things about the month of November.november chalkboard


The bookcases in the living room generally stay the same, but I do incorporate some minor touches, this time in the form of a couple white glitter pumpkins.

The dried hydrangeas that were on my Fall mantle were relocated to the sofa table, with my sweet pet antelope.vintage brass antelope

Off of the living room is the main entry hall, which is very small and features a chalkboard wall.  I change this wall out seasonally and typically add a quote to reflect how I feel.chalkboard entry hall wall decorated for fall

I added falling leaves in Autumn colors.

And the quote for this season comes from one of my favorites, Maya Angelou, who actually was a professor at Wake Forest when I was a student there.  I never had the good fortune to take one of her classes.

On the other side of the entry hall is the dining room, but I am saving the best for last!  Instead, I’ll take you to the guest room first.  In the guest room, just one simple seasonal touch was added in the form of the thankful tree we created last Thanksgiving.

Do you spy it on the dresser?  It’s made of curly willow branches I found on the side of the road in a brush pile, gold arrows I made with clay, and feathers stamped with the words of things for which we are thankful

The kitchen was given a couple of minor touches, but on Thanksgiving day, it will of course be the hub of all action.  There is nothing I love more than a toasty kitchen smelling of roasting turkey on Thanksgiving day!!!  To bring a little cheer to this space, I added some branches I clipped from trees in the yard.

thanksgiving table set by relish decorI had texted a picture to Hallie of the Mexican blanket I had as well as the arrows, and she knew what the dining room already looked like…. so she brought pieces that would work with all of those elements, as well as a Thanksgiving cook book.

For the place settings, she used dishes from her woodgrain dinnerware collection, which I adore!  The flatware is beautiful and handmade in France.  Hallie told me the story of the city of Thiers, where it comes from, and it was very interesting.

Each place setting is just stunning, very rustic, chic, natural, and using my favorite colors.  You can see Hallie also added my own white and gold antlers to the table.  They tie in beautifully with the gold in the glassware.

In the center of the table, Hallie used my Mexican blanket as a runner, my aqua vintage pitcher filled with my vintage arrows, my wooden carved antelopes, and she added in her own handmade wooden vases and wood plank.  I love the rustic and whimsical feel, and love the colors the blanket and arrows bring.

Hallie also sells amazing Kantha throws, and threw one on my head chair…. loved how it looked it!

  2. Cassie your home looks so warm and cozy for fall, and your Thanksgiving tablescape……beautiful! I love the wooden handled flatware and those gorgeous gold glasses!!! Your charcoal walls are a great backdrop to this time of year and fall colors!

  3. Cassie, I love all of the details! I still just adore your bedroom 🙂 And the table details…I LOVE the silverware, cups, and agate! Amazing!

  4. Whew – photo overload in the best possible way! That Thanksgiving table setting was so gorgeous it’s hard to pick a favorite part, because I would use every single thing in my own home – faux bois dishes, gorgeous silverware, those agate slices!!! Your home tour is so inviting!

    Also, I little laughed out loud at “flying turd”. Possibly my favorite part of this post 😉

  5. Wait a second: peacock flatware yesterday and today….bees?! It’s just too much. I’m going to go buy new flatware tomorrow, and it will have some sort of animal on it. Your house is lovely as always….I get a little sad when I see how people bring in branches for fall decorating that our yard is so nearly treeless. You know, until I watch the neighbors spend all weekend raking 😉

  6. That was JUST the eye candy I needed on a Wednesday morning, Cassie! I love all your fall touches — nothing complicated, just beautiful and interesting (much like YOU!). I want to steal that Mexican blanket!
