If there’s ever a time to make your dinner table look amazing and feel welcoming, it’s the holidays – and Thanksgiving is one of those holidays. Of course, Thanksgiving is all about being with family and friends, but it’s also a time to feel grateful and blessed.
And taking the time to set up a stunning Thanksgiving table is just one way to show your guests you care to treat them to something special. So, if you want to set a memorable table for Thanksgiving, here’s a roundup of some beautiful Thanksgiving table setting ideas you will absolutely fall in love with.
The first thing to keep in mind is that setting a beautiful Thanksgiving table doesn’t have to be complicated. But, there is somewhat of an art to making a Thanksgiving tablescape look and feel special. So let’s get started and dive into some ideas for a gorgeous Thanksgiving dinner table.
Thanksgiving Table Setting Decor
To get started, think about how you can incorporate the colors of fall into your tablescape. Sure, you can do something in red and orange, but don’t limit your color palette choices to just those. Consider this:
- Turquoise and white pumpkins
- Fresh purple grapes and figs
- Yellow sunflowers with eucalyptus leaves
- Fresh green herbs tied onto white place cards
Myself, I love to set a pretty Thanksgiving table, but I don’t want to spend a lot of money. So, I’ve found that if I have a color scheme in mind, I try to find decor items I already own to fit into my vision. It could be anything from a colorful table runner to a set of red wine glasses.
For a clean backdrop to a colorful Thanksgiving tablescape, I think a solid color is a perfect choice for tablecloths, table runners, and dishes. However, a bare wood table like the one shown here can also serve as the perfect backdrop to a beautifully set Thanksgiving table. Again, work with what you have. There’s no sense in completely covering up a nice table.
