Whether you’re hosting for the first time or the 20th time, let your Thanksgiving table decor set the scene for your fall gathering. We are breaking down a few different looks to help give you some inspiration. Most of them are easy to pull of so you can spend more of your time focusing on the food. ;)
This adorable Thanksgiving kids’ table proves that you don’t need to spend a lot to make the table festive. Plus, it’s proof that kids Thanksgiving table decorations don’t have to be too tacky. An inexpensive roll of craft paper stands in for a tablecloth—and the little ones will love that they can draw on their placemat before dinner.
A Simple, Natural Table Setting
This table shows that you don’t need to invest in a fancy tablecloth or an elaborate centerpiece to create pretty Thanksgiving decor. Covered in craft paper, with hand-lettered place cards and an abundance of candles, this look nails understated elegance. The best part about this table is the minimal clean up....when your guests leave, you can simply roll up the messy tablecloth and toss it out.
Modern and Natural Table
Instead of a traditional centerpiece or fall flowers, opt for on-trend air plants. These unexpected mini wreaths will be a big hit with your guests—the DIY doubles as a place card and a party favor that they can take home at the end of the meal. Keep the rest of your Thanksgiving table decor simple with white china, metallic silverware, and subtly-patterned napkins.
Traditional Thanksgiving Table Setting
If you’re looking for classic Thanksgiving table decor, let this setup will inspire you. Start with a plaid tablecloth, add an ear of Indian corn at each place, and don’t forget the decorative turkey plates. To build an inexpensive runner, gather oak leaves, nuts, and decorative gourds into an organic runner down the center of the table. The entire table can take just five minutes to pull together, but this quintessential Thanksgiving decor will leave a lasting impression.
A Sophisticated Gilded Table Scape
The magic of gold paint never ceases to amaze. And it certainly doesn’t disappoint in this elegant table setting. Other than the painted pumpkins, the brilliant tricks of this beautiful tablescape include arranging twinkle lights underneath to add a gentle glow, and lining the table with fresh-smelling eucalyptus.
These are just some of the many different ways you can style your Thanksgiving table. Hope everyone has a relaxing day with the ones they love!
