From the archives! This autumnal tablescape with pumpkin donuts — perfect for Thanksgiving morning — was prepared last fall by Brooklyn-based event and design shop Tinsel & Twine. We loved how they featured a thoughtful assortment of west elm vases and hope you find it an inspirational way to start your Thanksgiving morning!


We teamed up with some of our favorite local vendors to style a unique Fall tablescape. We planned to create a vignette that reflected the warm tones of Fall, but without using the traditional combination of burnt reds, oranges, and browns. Instead, we chose a more modern palette of charcoal and cream accented with glints of gold.


We were inspired by a collection of west elm vases to use circles as our design theme. The rounded edges and spots are echoed in our speckled menus, a dramatic gilded hanging wreath of hand-crafted paper petals, a cylindrical cakestand, and — of course — carefully architected pyramids of donuts and pastry puffs. So many details to take in make this a truly delicious feast for friends!

A menu for just the dessert part of the meal?
Now that’s got to be the center of swanky.

I love this! A wonderful composition of juxtaposition of contrasts: both cool and warm, soft and solid. Somebody has a great eye for design.
