Stuck between the gothic gore of Halloween and magical madness of Christmas, Thanksgiving doesn’t always get the attention it deserves when it comes to holiday decor. Sure, this particular holiday doesn’t come with a twinkling tree, but I’m here today to show you that there’s still plenty of autumnal fun to be had, especially when it comes to that all-important Thanksgiving tablescape. Read on for five shining examples of Thanksgiving table settings that prove giving thanks can be #instaworthy.

Rustic

Get back to nature this Thanksgiving with a stunningly simple rustic woodland themed table setting.

Fresh evergreen garlands loaded with pine cones alongside wood stump place mats atop a farmhouse style dining table? This may just be one of my favorite tablescapes ever.

The Blues

Not all tablescapes need a fancy floral centerpiece.

Here, autumnal pine cones scattered haphazardly across the table and piled into delicate porcelain bowls add a rich chocolate accent to the elegant blue and white aesthetic.

Oranges and Lemons

Whilst Christmas decor demands a tree and Halloween calls for pumpkins, one of the best things about Thanksgiving decor is the relative freedom you have to be as creative as you want.

This ‘Sweets and Spice’ table setting is giving me all the tropicana vibes, with its bright turquoise Shibori table runner and bountiful collection of summery satsumas. Balance out a bright centerpiece with simple dinnerware in pared back monochrome hues.

Make it Personal

For a sentimental take on Thanksgiving, I love the idea of using old throwback photographs of friends and family in lieu of traditional name cards.

Play up the nostalgia with rattan details and vintage dinnerware. Make sure to go sans tablecloth to keep your tablescape from looking too dated.

Millennial Pink

Thanksgiving is the perfect opportunity to make the most of millennial pink before it gets upstaged by mauvey Heartwood next year.

I especially love how the rich mustard and deep teal tones work to temper the saccharine blush hues of the pink base. Hand painted turkey plates and turkey place cards add just a subtle nod to the holidays.
