You don’t need pricy vases or rare florals to make an impact with your Thanksgiving dinner table. This table uses pillar candles (which can be found online or at your local discount store), seasonal fruits like apples and pears, and fall foliage (just give it a good rinse first if you use the real thing!) to create a simple, seasonal, and stunning display!

2.     Gold Star Styling

“Simple” not quite your thing? We’ve got you covered, too! When it’s time to ramp up the glam for the holidays, look no further than this gilded tablescape! Using spray-painted pumpkins as the focal point and small gold accents on the flatware and candle holders, you can easily create this dazzling display with supplies from a local craft store. For extra drama, pair the gold with a jewel tone like ruby or emerald!

3.     Coastal Cool


Missing the beach now that temperatures have dropped? Bring the coast home with the blue and breezy table design! With cool blues and fresh neutrals in the color palette, plus touches of the outdoors like shells and sticks you’d find on the beach, don’t be surprised if you start smelling the sea air alongside your turkey!

Keep It Kid-Friendly


Keeping the kids entertained during Thanksgiving dinner can be a huge challenge! Give them their own space complete with paper for art, plastic plates and cups, and lots of bright colors. They may never ask to sit at the grown-up table again!

Don’t be intimidated by the ornate and expensive spreads in magazine or professional social media accounts. It doesn’t have to be a huge operation to create a beautiful table setting for the holidays, and most materials can be found at a low cost, or you may even already have them – inside or outside! Most of all, feel free to be creative and show your personality. The personal touches and effort you put in to creating a beautiful display for your guests is what will make your tablescape the most special.
