Thanksgiving is fast-approaching and it’s about time to start putting the finishing touches together, tablescape included. Here are a few tablescape ideas we think will take your holiday decor to the next level and bring in the spirit of the holidays.
Reflecting the warm colors of the season like reds, oranges, and yellows always gets us in the Thanksgiving spirit! You can use these colors in the linens on the table and don’t be afraid to mix and match! Rustic tables are my favorite. For example, really simple glassware, a wooden table without a tablecloth and using herbs as a garland runner is just stunning. Not only does it look gorgeous, it brings in the smell of fall with the rosemary, sage, lavender and thyme bunches.
Another great way to incorporate the season into your table decor is to take advantage of the fall foliage and its harvest. Placing fallen autumn leaves of all colors up and down the table, as well as a scattering of cranberries for a pop of color gives your table a nice warming and traditional feel.
Replacing traditional candle votive holders with hollowed out pumpkins is another creative and festive way to incorporate the season into your tablescape. Highlight those squash and pumpkins!
Also, I always think making a photo collage with pictures of dinner guests is a nice conversation starter as well as great way to show your appreciation of them!
