It’s time to start planning your Thanksgiving table décor, and I’m so excited to share our Thanksgiving tablescape with you! Thanksgiving is always one of my very favorite holidays, and hosting friends and family in our home this year seems more special than ever.
I wanted to make our Thanksgiving table extra thoughtful and beautiful this year with layers of autumnal colors, and a laid back yet elegant vibe. I used natural branches to create an easy Thanksgiving centerpiece, plates with layered monochromatic colors, wooden serving pieces to add warmth and vintage ceramics to tie everything together.
Thanksgiving Table Centerpiece
One of my favorite things about fall is that there are so many beautiful branches and berries growing wild. I used all-natural cuttings this year that I foraged from our neighborhood to create our Thanksgiving centerpiece, except for the cream roses, which I picked up at Trader Joe’s. I arranged everything in a muted greige ceramic vase with a loose, asymmetrical shape.
To recreate the look, you’ll need:
- Ceramic vase with an 8-12 in opening
- 3 branches of fall leaves
- 8 sprigs of burgundy berries or wispy flowers
- 6 springs of yellow berries or wispy flowers
- 3 bunches of small gray berries
- 5 sprigs of small white wildflowers
- 9 cream roses
Fill your pot with water, cut your branches to asymmetrical lengths, and arrange them loosely in your container. (PS. This arrangement will last almost 2 weeks if you change the water out every few days!)
As for our Thanksgiving Table settings, I opted for dark gray glazed plates with bronze trim mixed with lighter glazed salad plates, cream linen napkins, gold vintage flatware, and wooden napkin rings.
I also got to use a vintage decanter and goblet set that I recently scored on a shopping trip! The brown, indigo and gray glaze of the vintage drinkware collection plays off the rest of the Thanksgiving tablescape perfectly!
I brought in a few of my olive wood cutting boards and more of my vintage ceramic serving pieces to create a collected, layered look. I love how it all pops off the cream finish on our dining table. It’s a modern, cozy, Thanksgiving Table and I love it.
I created the Thanksgiving tablescape at the large oval table in our kitchen. It’s where we eat all our family meals and is extra cozy with the built-in banquette and low wooden chairs.
The table area is flanked by built-in bookshelves, where I also carried out the Thanksgiving décor theme. I used complementary colors that tie into the Thanksgiving table decorations to create a cohesive look.
This year, my goal is to create a magical Thanksgiving Table, that’s elegant, laid back, and makes our Thanksgiving and Friendsgiving guests feel extra special.
Have fun setting your Thanksgiving table this year. Use what you love, and keep it loose and laidback. In the end, gathering around your Thanksgiving table is all about laughing, making memories, and sharing this special time with the people you love most!
