Simple Thanksgiving Table Decor Ideas:
Whether you are celebrating with a large group of just your immediate family, here are some ideas to keep your Thanksgiving table decor simple…yet festive!
Start With A Fall Patterned Tablecloth:
If you don’t know where to begin when decorating your Thanksgiving table, it can be helpful to start with one inspiration piece.
While searching for my Thanksgiving table theme, this patterned tablecloth from Homegoods inspired me. Since the design is quite busy, I knew I’d be keeping the rest of the table colors neutral.
As you can see, the tablecloth has shades of greige, tan and gray on a white background. With those colors to work with, I had an easy time choosing items for my tablescape.
Keep It Simple with Basic White:
Since I wanted to prevent my accessories from competing with the tablecloth, I used simple white napkins and dishes.
For a subtle Thanksgiving touch, I used a “Thankful” napkin ring on each place setting. Actually, the napkin rings were gold when I bought them. So, I simply painted them to match the colors in the table cloth and the metal on my lantern centerpiece.
Give a Glow to Your Thanksgiving Table with Candles:
Besides the lantern centerpiece, I also added various types of candles to make the Thanksgiving table sparkle.
Now that the sun is setting earlier, the candles also make the table extra cozy in the evening. And speaking of cozy, this year I set the table in the kitchen. Though, I haven’t decided yet if we’ll actually have our dinner in the kitchen or dining room.
Later this week, I’ll set a table in the dining room and then I’ll decide. If you want an idea of how I decorated that room in previous years, see my Thanksgiving Table Setting in a Navy Dining Room.
Textured Items – Simple Thanksgiving Table Decor Ideas:
To add some interest to the table, I scattered a few textured pumpkins which coordinated perfectly with the seagrass chargers.
Actually, my seagrass chargers might technically be place mats but I think they work in both situations.
White Pumpkins Always Look Great for Fall:
In the fall, I’m always looking for excuses to decorate with white pumpkins. Also, I like that the pumpkins are a warmer white than the napkins and plates. They almost blend in with the glowing candles.
Although this table is set for six, it will be just the four of us on Thanksgiving Day. Obviously, this year will be different for most of us!
