With Thanksgiving just a few weeks away, it’s time to start preparing. If you’re like me, you won’t be hosting a large crowd this year though you still want to make the day special for your family. Today, I’ll be sharing my latest dining room tablescape to give you ideas on how to set a Thanksgiving table with warm fall colors. I’ll also be joining 19 other bloggers for A Season of Thanks Blog Hop hosted by Amber of Follow the Yellow Brick Home. From Thanksgiving tablescapes to Thanksgiving decor, we all hope to inspire you with our creative ideas!

Welcome to my Dining Room Set for Thanksgiving:
How to Set a Thanksgiving Table with Warm Fall Colors:
With the temperatures cooling down and the sun setting earlier these days, I think we’re all craving warmer colors. For my Thanksgiving table, I gathered up a bunch of colorful fall accessories for a cozy look. Down the center of the table, I weaved in a fall themed garland (which I recently used for my fall mantel). Then I filled in real and artificial pumpkins, pine cones, and some battery operated candles for a nice glow.
Lighten Up with Some White:
To balance out all the warm autumn colors, I mixed in some white accessories.
For my Thanksgiving centerpiece, I dressed up a simple white pumpkin with some faux bittersweet wrapped around it. Then I elevated the simple centerpiece on a plain white cake stand.
Since my curtain panels were already white, they conveniently added the brightness I was looking to achieve in the room. In my opinion, when your walls are painted a dark color, you should mix in some lighter colors to keep the room from feeling heavy.
Simple References to Thanksgiving:
Although this table setting would be appropriate throughout the fall season, adding the “thankful” plates are a simple way to acknowledge the Thanksgiving holiday. On each place setting, I also included some feathers which could symbolize pheasants or turkeys for Thanksgiving.
Layers and Textures on the Thanksgiving Table:
Beginning with the buffalo check place mats, I then layered a brown woven charger and then two napkins between the plates. Of course, we don’t exactly need two napkins for dinner, but I like being able to pick up the colors from the placemat and the colors from the centerpiece accessories.
Velvet pumpkins in various shades add to the cozy textures.
And of course, the feathers for soft texture.
Since only my immediate family will get to enjoy our Thanksgiving table this year, I’m happy I could share it with you!
Now that my dining room is decorated for Thanksgiving, that’s one thing I can check off my list. Actually, two things…because I already set a Thanksgiving table in the kitchen! Now, I need to decide which table we’ll actually use on Thanksgiving day. Yes, this is what happens when you’re home too much!
I hope I inspired you with ideas to set your Thanksgiving table. Obviously, we’re all trying to make the best of our situations this year. Hopefully, you’ll be spending the day with loved ones…and hopefully things will be back to normal next year!
