How To Create A Beautiful And Festive Thanksgiving Table





How do you set your table for Thanksgiving when your home is decorated for Christmas? That’s the question I’ve often been asked. The answer is pretty simple, do what make you most happy. However, if you’re wanting to mash the 2 together, it’s definitely possible. In fact, it’s such a fun and pretty way to blend the 2 together for a festive look your guests will love.


Color Scheme

One way you can bring the looks together is to start with a cohesive color pallet. Traditionally, Thanksgiving tables are usually fall colors like browns and oranges and all the warm vibes. However, it’s possible to bring them together by simply adding some holiday greenery and touches of gold. Think outside the box a little and you’ll find the perfect combination.




I started by layering a cedar placemat to frame and anchor the dishes. Here is where you can have fun with the look. I waned to incorporate a sophisticated vibe so I used black dishes. You could also do a more traditional or formal china and bring in warmer colors. I kept the linens neutral, used a velvet ribbon as the napkin ring and added a pretty ornament clipped to the ribbon. Then to tie in the gold, I added the flatware.





For the table centerpiece, I started with a linen table runner and placed a strand of cedar garland on top. Then I nestled in 2 green pumpkins to give the Thanksgiving vibe. I filled in the gaps with eucalyptus to add more dimension and fullness. Gold candlesticks and birch candles are the perfect ambiance to complete the look.



It’s super simple and has a classy, festive vibe that can take you right into the holiday season . Just remove the pumpkins and replace them with some pretty deer or trees.
