Top 10 Thanksgiving Table Setting Ideas
I know Halloween just passed but don’t throw away those pumpkins quite yet! I have rounded up my Top 10 Thanksgiving Table Setting Ideas to give those gourds a second life. Whether you love a little color or prefer a monochromatic look , there are endless possibilities when using pumpkins as part of your Thanksgiving dinner centerpiece. Plus - who doesn’t love being able to use the same decorations for multiple holidays and save money ?
If you love a minimal and clean look for your centerpieces, going with an all white color scheme can make a big statement with little effort. Tone On Tone nailed this look by playing with different textures; the soft hydrangeas next to sharp antlers all tucked against the smooth candles and pumpkins are cohesive because they are all white.
Another minimalistic look featured on Design Sponge reminds me of something that would be in a a dreamy Nordic home . These tiny pumpkins almost get lost in between the imperfect dishware & painted tree branches. However, they are the necessary touch to tell your guests that this table was intentionally designed for Thanksgiving.
Tanya Slye has created a work of art that would be beautiful on your table year round by adding succulents to a carved pumpkin. A large one in the center of your table surrounded by a few smaller “baby pumpkins” would be the perfect centerpiece for the host that loves all things green .
Nothing screams Fall more than a touch of burlap incorporated into your table setting. This image found on pinterest uses pumpkins in hues of cream , mint and blues surrounded by simple greenery on top of a white linen table runner . The burlap chargers are then paired with white dinnerware to visually anchor the plates to the wooden table .
If you are a host that loves a little glam (or a lot) , this all gold pumpkin table setting may be just what you need . A Pumpkin and A Princess nailed this look by mixing wood, candles, acorns and golden pumpkins all centered on top of… you guessed it ! - burlap !
Green-blue dried hydrangeas , silver antler candelabras , white pumpkins and chaste-berries from her backyard - Kim of Sand and Sisal created a perfect coastal-meets-rustic feel in Fall with this table setting. She knew that the devil is in the details with this look and made sure every element was perfect by spraying her candles an antique white. This helped to blend them in with the creamy-white of the pumpkins and made all the difference.
For the Thanksgiving Dinner Host who is notorious for running a little behind schedule, this table setting from Megan of Our Handcrafted Life is perfect for you. In under 10 minutes she threw together this neutral fall table by pairing metallic tapered candle holders, inexpensive small white pumpkins and faux eucalyptus leaves from her local craft store.
Rose gold, copper and shades of pink is the color scheme perfect for the host who loves warmer hues but wants to stray away from the typical orange pumpkin. Randi Garrett Designs not only tells you where to get the supplies for this elaborate table scape she also provides step-by-step on how to achieve the look. Thank you Randi !
Another one of my personal favorites is this simple green and white table setting from Cambridge Home Company . If you’ve seen the other posts on Back to Almond Road , you know that this look is right up my ally. A bed of myrtle leaves , all white plates & a hint of silver are all elements needed to make a simple yet impactful tablescape. This is also a great option for those of you who don’t like tall centerpieces that can sometimes be a nuisance when trying to talk to your guests across the table .
The last table setting idea for Thanksgiving is for the host that cant get enough of pastels. Sanctuary Home brings spring trends effortlessly into Fall by pairing soft pink glassware and flowers with the obvious fall elements. This table setting idea made the list not only for its beauty , but also because it is a great reminder that not all Fall tablescapes with color have to feel inherently warm. Get creative, take a risk and you may surprise yourself !
