EASY THANKSGIVING TABLE SETTING IDEAS
Before you know it, you’ll be sitting down with loved ones on Thanksgiving Day to platefuls of delicious meals, good conversation, and that ever-famous cooked turkey. So, it’s time to talk your Thanksgiving tablescape.
For me, this time of year is bittersweet. Gone are the long, hot days of summer filled with fun on the water and weekend hike trips. But on the other hand – here are the days of snuggling in front of the fireplace, yummy crock pot dinners and inviting friends and family into your home for a warm meal. Once we accept that summer is truly over, we immediately begin to start planning for holiday festivities.. So let’s dive in – read on to see our Thanksgiving tablescape ideas!
Most years it’s just me my husband and kids (Nelly, Georgie and Athena) for Thanksgiving. But you can believe me when I say that we will still be busting out the good china and filling our bellies with turkey and pie in style. It’s Thanksgiving tradition!
We began our tablescape this year with the Autumn Leaves and natural textures like bamboo and rattan with with porcelain dinnerware and touches of gold, taking advantage of the vibrant colors. We also used a simple white tablecloth. In the center of the table an oval simple bronze square pot holds vibrant floral pieces that spills over beautifully giving the table a more vibrant look.
By bringing the outdoors in and pairing these with the gold edged dinnerware, it keeps the table from looking too “perfect”. I then pulled it all together by adding a couple of leaves plate.
For this next style we added pumpkins to our table setting because what Thanksgiving is complete without pumpkins? Right?
We love the natural textures mixed with plain colors like white that for us perfectly depicts fall. Adding natural elements to your table creates that fall vibe. Our Sun chargers made of rattan and Bamboo handled flatware does the job for this.
Lastly, we used a pearl beaded dinnerware layered on top of a porcelain white gold-rimmed plate that makes this look very understated, yet elegant.
Gourds of different shapes and sizes make up the base for this colorful runner. Garland runner, Faux flowers and plants are a big help when it comes to dressing up any table, but they're particularly useful around Thanksgiving when fresh blooms can be a little harder to source. Here, a craft garland decorated with pumpkins for a perfect runner and centerpiece all in one.
I love the way these tablescapes came together – a little vibrant and a little fancy. I hope you found these tips helpful and are left feeling inspired to create your own beautiful tablescape! Whatever your preference – fancy or casual, traditional or modern – I hope your table and your Thanksgiving turn out beautiful this year!
