Would you like to create a Thanksgiving tablescape as impressive as the ones pictured in your favorite magazine or website? Dressing up your table for the holidays sets the tone for your feast and helps your guests get in the holiday spirit. These seven striking tablescapes offer a little inspiration for your celebration.
Wild and Wonderful
Hate orange and brown? Make white the primary color in your Thanksgiving tablescape. Arranging white candles and albino pumpkins on a white runner offers a simple way to add an elegant touch to your table. If you can’t find albino pumpkins, buy a can of spray paint and cover orange pumpkins in a coat of white.
Fun and Colorful
This bright table makes you think “fall” even though there isn’t a leaf or pumpkin in sight. Orange and red, the same colors as the changing leaves, are used to create a tablescape that’s particularly appropriate for the season. Pairing white bowls and plates with bouquets of orange roses and candles, while alternating orange and red napkins, ensures that the bold colors don’t become too overwhelming.
Although this tablescape is undoubtedly more subdued than the last one, everything about it says “Happy Thanksgiving.” White table runners, a brown tablecloth and striped napkins provide the perfect backdrop for the twiggy candelabra. Studded apples and few casually strewn leaves add the finishing touches to this attractive Thanksgiving tablescape.
Bold and Dramatic
There’s more than one way to dress the table for your Thanksgiving feast, as this bold tablescape illustrates. Patterned placemats and orange bowls and flowers add a touch of color to the black and white palette without detracting from the sleek, sophisticated design.
Subtle decorations allow your crystal, dishes and tableware to shine in this holiday tablescape. Best of all, the look is easy to replicate. Simply cut a selection of branches from the backyard, pick up a few pine cones, and add a collection of white taper candles to create the traditional tablescape.
Quick and Easy
Sometimes the best solutions are the easiest ones. Placing white pillar candles in a leaf-filled wooden box offers a very simple, yet effective, way to create a beautiful Thanksgiving centerpiece. Although you can certainly use leaves from your backyard, artificial versions may be a better choice around lit candles.
