At the beginning of 2020 I finally had the opportunity to meet Meghan from Parker Grace Events. She had been on my radar for a long time, but our paths eventually crossed at a networking event. Although 2020 had different plans for us all…. we stayed in touch through Instagram and I was thrilled when she reached out and asked me to photograph two Thanksgiving tablescapes. She had a few clients in the east bay that were going all out for the holidays and a few professional photos would be cherished to remember this festive celebration.
The first home held their Thanksgiving at a long farm table under a covered awning right off of their main living room. Unaware of the new Pantone Colors of the Year, Meghan incorporated soft butter yellows with gray blues – what a trend setter! Boxed floral arrangements and bud bases from Busy Bee Floral lined the center of the table. I loved the Thanksgiving placemats and the yellow water goblets.
The second home hosted their Thanksgiving under their pool cabana. The chairs for this reception space were absolute show stoppers! I’m really drawn to the lighter wood tones of the table too. Between the chairs, the hurricane candles, the lace runner, and those luscious blooms, this is the Thanksgiving tablescape of my dreams! Each place setting had a mini floral arrangement and a calligraphed name card for each guest. Meghan continues to blow me away with her refined designs and her focus on the details.
