Thanksgiving Table: Connor Lesniak of Conbon Industries


Lets be real?Thanksgiving, for all of its familial merrymaking, can be pretty darn stressful. Between trying not to scorch the turkey and making sure uncle Ralph doesnt drink too much bourbon like last year, it can be easy to forget about the little things. Little things like setting the table, perhaps! In an effort to help you get on top of your Thanksgiving table-scaping game this year, were re-launching our Thanksgiving Table series. In the days leading up to Thanksgiving, we will treat you to a different Thankskgiving table, beautifully assembled by one of our favorite artists or designers. And?to stir things up a little bit, we had West Elm donate a set of plain white dinnerware to each designer to prove that you can make a beautiful table with basics?even using the dinnerware you already own. To kick off this years round of Thanksgiving Tables, were thrilled to present a stunning autumnal table styled by graphic designer and artist extraordinaire, Connor Lesniak (of Conbon Industries). Growing up in my family, Connor writes, Thanksgiving marked the end of Autumn. In the following week or two, wed pile into a minivan and get a Christmas tree. So for me, and I guess by association for this table, the inspiration is a celebration of Autumns colors, flavors, and atmosphere. What I came up with is a giant, out of control burst-of-Fall-floral centerpiece and a little cranberry-curd-filled macaron on everyones plate. I know it isnt your typical Thanksgiving pregame, but its both simple and special at the same time my personal power-combo for memorable entertaining. Continue after the jump for all of the photos plus Connors table decorating tips! ?Max (more)
