Thanksgiving Table Ideas

Thanksgiving Table ideas
Less than a week until Thanksgiving everyone! I love this holiday for many reasons but one of them is because it’s the last chance we have to decorate with fall-themed things. Some people have already put up their Christmas trees but I’m still clinging to my pumpkins.

Decorating for Thanksgiving

One of my favorite trends that we’re beginning to see is the use of copper! I like it because it’s cheap, elegant, and easy to decorate with. I’m still a fan of gold (I’ll always love it) but copper is something new and exciting! If you’re hosting Thanksgiving for the first time, consider investing in a few accessories or serving trays that incorporate this growing trend.

Keeping with tradition though, I love a classic wreath! My mom has one for every single holiday or season and I’m probably going to buy some when I move out. A little decorating tip: use the wreath as a centerpiece for your table. Inside of it place a candle or a bowl of cranberries, a classic Thanksgiving dish!

Placemats are another love of mine. I bought these gorgeous Cynthia Rowley ones at TJ Maxx even though I don’t have my own dining room to use them in. They were on sale and I just couldn’t resist! I saw the “thankful” ones above at Target today for $3.99 each and stood there looking at them for a good minute or two before I decided that once again, I don’t have my own dining room and these aren’t exactly my mom’s style. They’re really cute for the holiday though and might be perfect for the inevitable “kid’s table” that pops up at nearly every Thanksgiving gathering.

If none of these ideas fly with you, then go find yourself a ceramic turkey to put on your table and be done with it! I’d caution you when putting it on the table though- turkeys have a front and back, so be careful where the back faces as to not offend anyone if you know what I mean.

  1. Love these table decorations! We had our Thanksgiving last month (in Canada) and I bought a little pumpkin dish from Crate and Barrel to add some treats in and added some faux orange, yellow and red flowers from the dollar store as a centrepiece vase. Simple, but effective. I love those glass pumpkin jars!

  2. Love, Love, Love all this! I was hoping you’d include copper and you did! I’m also a fan of rose gold. We’re not hosting this year but I’m definitely going to look for those place mats at Target for the future 🙂 Right now I’m decorating the house w/ pumpkins and dried hydrangea from our garden. Happy (early) Thanksgiving!

  5. Love the gold for dinner tablescapes.
    I also LOVE how big Thanksgiving is for Americans! I guess it really does kick off the holiday season. In Canada we celebrate in October, and it’s not quite a big to-do, probably because we have no Black Friday Sales!
    Great post.
