bringing family and friends together enjoying a festive meal is what we look forward to on Thanksgiving day. And being the host of the Thanksgiving feast, it's your chance to put your hostessing skills and create an awesome table display. Even if your Thanksgiving get-together is a little smaller and more intimate this year, you can still make it festive with one of these creative Thanksgiving table decor ideas.
No need to buy new for Thanksgiving. Simply add contrast from dark napkins on white dishware and upgrade your leftover pumpkin from Halloween. Use plates with nature-inspired greenery to bring in color, and pair well with a vine centerpiece. Add small decorative pumpkins to amp up the autumnal feeling, as well.
If you were able to save some of your leftover pumpkins from Halloween, you can transform them into vases by adding a plastic container to hold water and placing them on your dining table as a centerpiece.
Fall is the harvest season. It would be a great idea to add some fresh produce to your Thanksgiving dining table. You can add seasonal accents, like pumpkins and apples, or fruits you love all year long, like grapes or figs, to create a beautiful and unique autumnal table.
Place a fringed plaid blanket along the center of the table to create a cozy look together with large wood slices to hold the pumpkin as a table centerpiece.
Add some greenery touch to make a huge impact on a plain table runner. Just bundle together a bunch of leafy greens or even herbs and you've got a seasonally-inspired centerpiece to go with your turkey meal. Roll up your messy tablecloth and toss it out, add some hand-lettered place cards and some candles. A guaranteed minimal clean-up when your guest leave.
This style is perfect for those who are on a tight budget. This is an easy centerpiece that doesn't interfere with sightlines across the table, look to an autumn-themed wreath. Place a serving piece, cakestand, candle, or vase in the hole at the center and you have an instant tablescape.
