Thanksgiving is just 4 WEEKS AWAY! How is that possible? I just got done cleaning up pool toys and here we are. I thought I would bring you some inspiration from my Fall Tablescape last year and give you some simple Thanksgiving table decor ideas! Since we have moved into this new house, I have been in renovation mode and honestly am just trying to wrap up these projects before my kids come back home for the holidays. My dining space isn’t close to being complete right now. It’s in the middle of a transformation and not ready to be set for Thanksgiving.
The setting was simple but there are so many things I loved about it. One thing I did that I loved was use two simple scarves I bought from the dollar section at Target. They were actually $5/scarf (not a dollar at all) and were the perfect color for my table. A warm, sage green and cream. Cozy and simple was what I wanted for this table and these scarves gave me just the right touch the cozy part. I set them at an angle and layered them on top of each other. Some other options could be to scrunch them up and place them in the center to add some softness or fold them and make them a long runner down the middle.
I love these wooden candle holders with the glass I found at Target as well. They are such a warm wood tone to add some more cozy to the table. Adding warm tones and a soft, golden glow creates an inviting vibe. The black candle sticks add another layer of interest with color and various heights.
For dining I like to use real candles vs. the battery operated. I love the authentic feel of a real candle at the dinner table. There really is nothing like the warm glow to invite your guests to stay a while. It makes dinner a special event and I find that everyone sits around a little longer to chat.
Clearly these salad plates boast Thanksgiving without being too much. When layering a place setting, I like to add a charger, a dinner plate, napkin and a salad plate on top. **TIP** When making your charger selection, choose something versatile that can carry you through several different holidays. This will keep costs down and allow easy storage if you have several to buy.** I have classic gold chargers and use them for multiple holidays.
I was able to add warmth and more subtle color to the table by layering a runner and some simple garland. I used a simple burlap runner, twisting and scrunching as I went down the table to add some dimension. Then I layered this beautiful garland on top. The lovely thing about this garland is that it really can carry you through Christmas, all of Winter and even into Spring.
Adding touch of crystal finished it off. I only pull these crystal water goblets out on the holidays. These glasses are heavy enough to not easily tip over but are an elegant touch to the table. We all have that ONE person who can’t seem to get through a meal without spilling something. #amiright
