Give Your Thanksgiving Guests a Table to Talk About
Table settings are a fun way to dress up the dining room for any occasion. There are so many little things you can do to set your table with pizzazz and style. Almost like changing clothes, you can switch themes, colors and accessories relatively easily and with little time invested. Using simple tools like linens, table runners, outdoor elements, candles, and flowers one can continue to innovate the table design for any occasion. The trend featured in this article is inspired by fall’s cooler temperatures and the upcoming celebration of Thanksgiving. You can always stick with oranges and browns, but this particular table incorporates lighter, more neutral colors with white gourds, natural elements from nature, elegant flatware, and can be kept in place all month long. It has somewhat of an outdoor or rustic feel, yet still encompasses the warmth and coziness of an indoor meal.
Since your table setting is one of the first things your guests will see when they arrive, making it inviting and beautiful is not only important, but makes your fall and holiday hosting unique and fun. This featured table layers the simplest of elements and textures for a look that is beautiful. Start by sourcing white pumpkins or gourds. They make great centerpieces and are easy to style. A plain white tablecloth, simple khaki linen or burlap runners coupled with rustic lanterns can add to the ambiance. Next, add some seasonal greenery or flowers for an extra splash of color. Goldenrod and Lamb’s ear are incorporated here, but you can swap out for Lavender, small Mums, or any combination you choose. You can also find twigs, leaves, pine cones, or acorns from outside your home to add an extra touch of texture. Keep things easy with white china or lighter tableware. Finally, include an elegant touch with copper or rose gold colored flatware to complete the look. Finish off your beautiful table setting with personalized name cards that will leave your guests feeling welcomed and special in your home.
Go ahead and steal this idea, or simply use it as a starting point from which to dream up some Thanksgiving table decor that’s uniquely you.
