Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Are you hosting this year’s dinner? Your house will probably be full of family members, little children running through your home, and that certain excitement that only comes this time of year. Ahh, the holidays–aren’t they great? We all want the day to go smoothly, which can seem impossible when you have to cook, clean, and decorate. What about your dining area? Are you dreaming of having an unforgettable Thanksgiving tablescape? Whether you need inspiration for your tablescape or something quick and easy, we have some ideas to help your holiday look great.
Fall is known for its gorgeous colors. The trees drip rich reds, savory yellows, and that fun pop of orange. You can’t go wrong if your tablescape embraces the traditional colors of the season. Decorate your dining area with fresh mums, decorative pumpkins and turkey decor. It’s quaint to find dinnerware to match your theme, and gorgeous candlesticks, like the whitewashed look of the ones shown here, add style and function for intimate lighting. Want to personalize your tablescape? We love the small chalkboard, shown above, for a fun addition. Write your favorite holiday quote, or have guests write what they’re thankful for.
Dark with Accents
Thanksgiving doesn’t necessarily have to feature the “typical” fall colors. There are many ways to create a holiday vibe, even with dark tones! If you want your Thanksgiving tablescape to look something like the one pictured, you are certainly headed for an elegant, alluring scene. Add elegance by adding a contrasting metallic color, like the gold that is pictured. Your tablescape will be strikingly beautiful and stylish.
Light and Natural
Some people love to put all of their Thanksgiving energy into preparing the food. Especially if you’re hosting dinner this year, decorating your table might be on the bottom of your list. We get it! The holidays are hectic, but there’s no reason to fret. There are plenty of ways to beautify your dining area and to easily make an unforgettable tablescape for you and your guests. Pictured here is a classy, festive tablescape, featuring autumn leaves, branches, and candles–and we love the simplistic beauty. With just a few items, which can be purchased at a craft store or even found outside, your dining area can be Thanksgiving-ready in minutes. The light and natural feel of this set-up will provide a great atmosphere for your family and friends.
It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like…
Holiday festivities! For many families, Thanksgiving is the start of the holiday season. Holiday music plays in the background while you prepare dinner, children start to see exciting commercials to help start their wish list, and there is a certain cheer in the air that only happens this time of year. If this sounds like your family, consider centering your tablescape around holiday decor. Include small accents of red, like a table runner or bright accents. Pine tree branches and garland is perfect winter decor and holiday-inspired scents are a great choice for candles. This magical season can be represented in so many forms; your possibilities are endless.
