What better way to wow your family, friends, and guests than with a stylish festive table for Thanksgiving? Adorn your table with metallic accents, rustic ornaments, flowers, unique color palettes, and intimate lighting. Your loved ones and guests will enjoy the ambiance you have created as it complements your delicious Thanksgiving meal. Here are some ideas and images to inspire you to come up with your own creative table setting this Thanksgiving!
For an elegant, classic, and monochromatic table setting, try an all white color palette with hints of gold from silverware or dishware. Create your own winter wonderland with white table cloths, place mats, dinnerware, napkins, place cards, and accents. Let the Thanksgiving dinner take center stage among the all white table decor.
Create a themed table setting such as a beach coastal decor. Instead of the usual reds, oranges, and browns, create a modern, elegant table by using white and blue table accents with burlap material for either a runner or a table cover. It’ll feel like having Thanksgiving dinner at the beach.
Metallic accents are hot this year in home accessories so why not incorporate it in your Thanksgiving table setting? Paint pumpkins, pine cones, or twigs in gold or silver, display your gold trimmed plates and glasses, or place metallic shimmery napkins and place mats on your dining table.
Dark and Moody
Feeling like giving your guests a mysterious and enigmatic Thanksgiving experience? Use dark, rich colors like black, navy, charcoal, or olive green for your table setting. Nothing creates more mystery and elegance than adding texture such as a luxurious velvet tablecloth against contrasting metallic plates and flatware. Place geod nameplates to create a unique and stylish tablescape.
Create an welcoming ambiance at your table by using candlelight in various colors, sizes, and shapes. Mix in a few glass or metallic votives, tall candlesticks, or old lanterns to give your Thanksgiving table setting a little extra sparkle and a more intimate feel.
If you can’t create a table setting outdoors, bring nature inside by incorporating plants and flowers as well as wooden elements such as twigs and birch bark to your table decor. Add some burlap for texture, create a twig table runner, or look in your own backyard to see what freebies Mother Nature is offering up.
