Top 5 Thanksgiving Table Decoration Ideas
Beautiful and Memorable Thanksgiving Table Decorations
It’s that one holiday every year to honor all that we are thankful for, and then —maybe even more important — it’s about the meal. Of course, most every holiday has its culinary element, but none more so than Thanksgiving, so give a little extra attention to your table this fourth Thursday in November and give your usual table décor a makeover that will give this year’s turkey a run for its money.
Add Color With Table Linens
Mix your classic china with contemporary table linens in bright vibrant fall colors. Try unexpected color combinations, such as warm orange with black and burgundy. From tablecloths and table runners to placemats and napkins, this added dash of color to your table will set a festive mood.
Make it Personal
Handwrite place cards for your guests. It adds a personal touch and makes everyone feel like a special guest. Add an accent to each place setting, such as a sprig of herbs tied with twine, a small gilded pumpkin, or a mercury glass fall ornament that your guests can take home and hang from their soon-to-be-placed Christmas tree.
Decorate With Seasonal Floral
There is an abundance of ways to display the glory of fall’s foliage. A fall wreath will look right at home in your dining room this Thanksgiving dinner. Sprinkle sunflowers, pumpkins, and pinecones along the center of your table or display them in a pretty decorative wood bowl or platter at your buffet table.
Don’t forget the requisite decorative turkey—one always looks right at home on your foyer table, hearth or sideboard.
Refresh Your Dinnerware
Change things up this year with a new set of fall-inspired dinnerware. If you usually dust off the china every Thanksgiving, then a fresh set of dinnerware may be the best addition to your menu this year. And best of all, so many of today’s dinnerware options offer gorgeous sets at affordable prices.
Use Candlelight for Ambiance
There are so many ways you can fill your table with the warm glow of candlelight. Create an eclectic mix of candlesticks across your table. Mixing wood with metal of varying heights and candle sizes. Or, opt for a more matching look with an iron multi-candle holder that makes a beautiful centerpiece and can be accompanied with fall berries or a swag of autumn leaves.
