How to Create an easy Thanksgiving Dining Tablescape:
I wanted to share our How to Create an easy Thanksgiving Dining Tablescape setting with you. Because it’s not the traditional Fall feel with leaves and pumpkins, I went with a winter white, silver, and gold theme. And it feels elegant and warm. To give it a Thanksgiving feel, I picked up this fun silver pheasant from Target and added antlers and wooden details.
How to Create an easy Thanksgiving Dining Tablescape: Adding items
TIP: for adding layers to your Thanksgiving Dining Tablescape, find items around your home that work in your color/theme. Please pay attention to heights; find items from low to high, but not too high that you can’t see around it. I love pieces that are general and don’t scream a certain holiday so that you can use them more often. It helps for easy collecting because of items like glass, mercury glass, and solid colors like gold, silver, white, and red (red works for Christmas, Valentine’s day, and Summer). Pieces that give your table a glow like candles, votives, and candlesticks are great pieces to collect.
How to Create an easy Thanksgiving Dining Tablescape: Adding Layers
TIP: I love to share is to layer your tablecloth; this works great if you don’t have the perfect size for your Thanksgiving Dining Tablescape. Here I used a large plain white tablecloth that fits the table and to add a pop of design. I used the gold stripe meant for a smaller table, but you wouldn’t notice it doesn’t fit the table because of the layering. I also like to layer different tablecloths of different sizes if you don’t have one that fits! Just remember they need to be in the same color family for it to work.
Our table is for 8, yet I always buy everything in sets of 12. I do this in case anything breaks, or if I have extra people, we can make a kid table for 4 at our kitchen island. It is also because I am a little bit of a collector….(my boys are going to hate me when I die!)
I love collecting things to entertain and make life beautiful; I can throw any party at a moment’s notice because of the pieces I’ve collected over the years! So If you want to build your entertaining collection, keep following along with me. I plan on sharing more of my entertaining tips and collections with you as I have had so many of you ask for me to share this part of my life. Would you like a list of my basic entertaining starter kit? This would be the must-have items and then be able to build from that. *If so, please leave a comment below.
I love Thanksgiving and spending time with family and friends over good food, and I know you do too! So next time, make it a beautiful experience and share your love over a beautifully designed table; there is no better way to show off the hard work you spent in the kitchen. TIP: You can build your perfect table-scape weeks before to take the pressure off.
