Thanksgiving is a wonderful time for friends and family to gather together and enjoy each other’s company. If you are hosting a Thanksgiving meal this year, you have probably given some thought as to how to decorate your table. You help set the mood for the event with the tablescape that you prepare. Oftentimes, your decor reflects your personality and style. Here are nine festive tablescapes to help you welcome your guests to your home this year.
Combine Naturals with Metallics
This chic Thanksgiving tablescape from Living with Landyn is surprisingly simple to create. The combination of cream, burlap, and dazzling gold is both trendy and chic. Impress your guests with this beautiful nature inspired tablescape.
Go Bright and Bold
Buck tradition and create your own new version of what a Thanksgiving tablescape should look like. Use bright bold colors to make your table look especially festive. This ombre pumpkin centerpiece from Oh Happy Day is a fun way to add a punch of color to your tablescape this year.
Or Add Just a POP of Color
If bright colors are not your style, opt for just a pop of color. Autumn days can be drab and dreary, so opt for a punch of orange color to liven up the tablescape. Miniature pumpins or even fruit, like the mandarin oranges pictured in Yummy Mummy’s post, add a delightful pop of color to the table.
Use Natural Accents
Incorporate pieces of nature into your Thanksgiving tablescape. Dried plants and herbs are a lovely way to bring natural accents into your decor. In this fragrant and beautiful idea from Finding Home Farms, lavender is combined with a feather and tied up with a bit of twine. The tag makes an elegant finishing touch.
Many of us have a tendency to think of plaid as a Christmas trend. Buck tradition and use plaid in the fall instead! Holly Mathis Interiors sets a beautiful Thanksgiving table using plaid fabric as the backdrop. The autumnal colors of the plaid table cover go perfectly with the West Elm plates she has chosen for this table setting.
Go For the Gold
Why just use a dash of metallics when you can boldly go full on gold? Gold flatware is exquisite and unexpected. Once Wed shows how lovely gold flatware looks in this elegant place setting. Add gold dipped wine glasses to accent the gold flatware.
Keep things rustic and casual with darling chalkboard elements. From signs to food dish labels to place cards, there are several ways to incorporate the chalkboard trend in your Thanksgiving table decorating. AKA Design shows how she decorated her fall table with these sweet chalk board place cards.
Mesh soft vintage elements with pale hues to create an old Southern inspired table for Thanksgiving. Design Enthusiasm shares how she combines vintage plates with baby boo pumpkins, blush pink roses and pale green hydrangeas to create a table that is worthy of any socialite.
Combine natural elements with clean lines to create a soothing setting that is neither fussy nor over stated. HGTV shares a gorgeous place setting using stemless wine glasses, a repeating pattern of sticks as the table runner, and lovely gold dipped leaves as accents.
These nine festive tablescape ideas offer a lot of variety, so you are sure to find inspiration to suit your sense of style.
