Rebrand Update + Farmhouse Style Thanksgiving buffet table

Well hellllllo there and welcome to sarahjoyblog.com!! Eeeek! That feels so weird/exciting to say, but this is officially the first post under my new URL. If you have no idea what I’m talking about you can check out my rebrand news here! I still have few random things that need to be updated, but this URL change was the big one. Now you can find me and all of my posts at sarahjoyblog.com. Yippee! Before I move on to the farmhouse style thanksgiving buffet table, I just wanted to thank you all for the support of my rebrand. When I shared the news last week I honestly didn’t know what to expect, but you all blew me away with your kindness and encouragement. Your support means everything to me, so thank you, thank you!

Farmhouse Style Thanksgiving Buffet Table

Now let’s giddy on up to today’s post. I actually wanted to share a little Thanksgiving inspired decor with you guys. I was playing around in the dining room the other day and started styling my vintage cubby as a little side table/buffet for Thanksgiving dinner. It’s pretty simple, but you guys know I like simple so I wanted to share it with you all today!

We have a pretty small dining room, which means I don’t have a lot of extra space for a full size buffet table. So this old vintage cubby works pretty well instead. I styled it for Thanksgiving with a few extra plates and bowls, this cute two tiered cake stand, and of course a few pumpkins.  And I even used one of my DIY pumpkin stands as little vase for a few fall stems.

Functional Storage

I used this black wire basket to hold my vintage napkins. Just simply roll them up and tie each one with a piece of twine. I love this simple way to display the “fancy” napkins for your guests on Thanksgiving.

That yummy candle next to the napkins is poured in an antique ball jar, which is pretty much the coolest thing ever. It’s from Antique Candle Works and I think it’s perfect for Thanksgiving because it’s a little more fancy than your average candle. It definitely feels like a special occasion type of candle to me. You can find other antique candles here.

How cute is that stack of vintage books stamped fall, pumpkin, and harvest?! I got them from this little Etsy shop and I loooooooove them. Such a creative idea! They also do customized books and there are tons of great options for the holidays.

This old wooden cubby in our dining room is always one of my favorite things to style as the seasons change. I love the idea of using it a makeshift buffet table for Thanksgiving day and it’s actually just the right size for a few extra plates, napkins and table top goodies.

So glad you could drop by the blog today!! And again, thank you so very much for the support of my rebrand. Love you looooooooooong time.

    Love the whole look but especially like the wreath hanging in front of the chalk board with the picture inside the wreath.

    Beautifully arranged as always!! Your style is so fresh and I am looking to freshening up my rooms up as well.
    Sarah, what advice would you give to those of us that want to freshen up our spaces, while keeping walls that have color on them. Our home really is not really suited to white walls, even though I love white, because we are in the woods with not a great amount of sunlight coming in. And I’m sure many others may not have white or gray that has been really popular lately. Would love to have you weigh in on this. Thanks so much!

      Sarah said:

      We had yellow walls for 2 years and I found that more neutral decor looked great with them. That way the wall was the pop of color but the decor around it was more soft, if that makes sense!

        Thanks Sarah! That does make sense!

    As usual your cubbie looks adorable! I’m glad to see you are hanging on to fall decor/Thanksgiving longer instead of jumping into Christmas like so many other Blogger/Instagrammers are right now. I too want to enjoy one holiday at a time. I am looking forward to what you will do for Christmas though ๐Ÿ™‚

      Sarah said:

      Yeah I’m waiting a little longer than normal this year. I’m not in any hurry, still enjoying these pumpkins for a bit longer!

    Hi Sarah

    Not only did you take on the โ€œstep out in faithโ€ move of re-branding your blog, you also had time for Thanksgiving decorating! You go Sarah Joy!!! Thanks for inspiring and motivating me personally and in my business!

    This works out beautifully for your accessories cabinet/table. Of course the whole thing is gorgeous! I love watching what you do mainly because of the small amount of space you have to work with. You always add just the right things to fill the right space. I think that helps a lot of people to visualize what can be done with smaller spaces. An apartment I once lived in moons ago had a very small kitchen and because of the way it was laid out it functioned perfectly.

    You have a fun blog! One thing that is more difficult now though is the size and style of the words. It is much harder to read. The letters are too close together and the print too small. This isnโ€™t meant to discourage you, I just thought it might be helpful to know this.

      Sarah said:

      I agree Carrie. I’m working on it right now actually. Hopefully I have it fixed soon.
