Creating a Beautiful Thankgiving Table
Setting the table for Thanksgiving should be stress-free and add to the enjoyment of your holiday festivities. Creating a beautiful environment for your guests can be easier, and less expensive than you might think. We’d like to share a few of our favorite tips!
- Incorporate Natural Elements
Give guests a beautiful first impression by creating a swag of pine cones and ribbon. This is simple to do and will look beautiful well into winter.
2. Utilize Items You Already Have at Home
A plaid blanket or sheet makes a darling Thanksgiving tablecloth. Repurpose Halloween pumpkins, sprinkle in leaves and acorns (or small pinecones), and add a few votives and some Indian Corn and viola!
3. Butcher Paper for the Win!
Let’s be honest, Thanksgiving plates get heaped beyond capacity and spills are going to happen. How adorable, and practical, is this option!? Simply cut your butcher paper to size, trace your place settings, and write your guests’ names on their plate. Use candles and greenery as the centerpiece, or mums and gourds, or let your glorious food be the centerpiece… easy second helpings? Yes, please!
4. Glowing Candles in a Fragrant Vessel.
This is such a sweet idea! We love the warmth and glow that a cluster of candles creates. And a bag or two of apples is an inexpensive way to make a big impact! Simply carve out the tops with a melon baller, pop your tea light in and you’re set! We’d be tempted to sprinkle the apples with cinnamon too. Think of how yummy that would smell! Mmmmmm…
5. Incorporate Natural-Fiber Textiles
Harken back to early Thanksgiving celebrations by utilizing rustic textiles. This burlap table runner and linen napkins are stunning in their simplicity and look amazing with the deconstructed centerpiece of pumpkins, antlers, and greenery. The overall look is welcoming, comfortable, and surprisingly elegant.
We’d gobble up more ideas and/or images of how you celebrate! Please feel free to share in the comments area of this post.
However you set your holiday table, we wish you the happiest, and most beautiful of Thanksgivings.
