Theory Opening 2016_Z84A8613

Like many of our favorite retail home stores, THEORY is the brick & mortar outpost of two talented Charlotte interior designers, Emily Hudgens & Toni Hollingsworth. With their eye for detail and impeccable style, Emily & Toni have filled their bright & airy cottage rooms with an eclectic assortment of very well-priced pieces for your home, and gifts galore.

On our recent shop of the store, we just could not get Thanksgiving off the mind….a little imagination and this boutique will go a LONG way to making your seasonal holiday parties chic with a modern vibe. I like a centerpiece with unusual and unexpected items, a little bling or shine and lots of natural elements combined with some decorative pieces that I can repurpose over and over again.

Here is scoop’s PINTEREST board with some pins of Modern Thanksgiving Table Top Ideas…and here are a few of the items I spied at Theory that would be perfect.


Table Top and Centerpiece Items:


Filled with fruit, nuts or moss balls.


one or two of Theory’s amazing floral elements would stand out and update any of your old stand-by centerpiece items
