The holiday season is coming up quickly! There are so many wonderful Christmas decor ideas cropping up everywhere that it’s tempting to skip over Thanksgiving, but I like to hang onto the fall decor just a little longer. A beautiful Thanksgiving table makes the meal feel so much more festive. Costs can add up quickly when you consider the food, drinks and decor so today I’m sharing some simple, budget-friendly Thanksgiving tablescape ideas.
First up is a table from Jenn at Clean & Scentsible. The pumpkins in various sizes and shades of white accentuate the brighter pops of orange and red. The striped runner anchors the centerpiece and brings in all those lovely fall colors as well. Tip: hit your local grocery store or Trader Joes the day before Halloween for super cheap pumpkins!
Jen from The Chronicles of Home uses a mix of natural elements to create a beautiful jewel-toned Thanksgiving tablescape. Don’t you just love the artichokes?? Simple painted mason jars are filled with stones and branches that can be collected around your yard. The oranges and the moss add a burst of color that compliment the more subdued colors of the jars and artichokes.
Sophia uses Baby Boo pumpkins and short white pillar candles for her centerpiece. You could place the pumpkins and candles directly on a table runner if you’re without a baguette board like Sophia used here. Some greenery snipped from trees or bushes would bring in the green accents on a plain burlap runner.
Who else is loving copper this fall? Lauren from Bless’er House has a gift for styling and always creates the most beautiful tablescapes. I love this Thanksgiving tablescape that she designed using spraypainted candle-holders and chargers found at the dollar store. It looks amazing, but isn’t a budget-buster by any stretch.
Nina Hendrick is a blogger that I came across more recently and I absolutely love her style. I like the simplicity of her fall tablescape from last year. The berries on the branches add a pop of fall color and the chargers ground the white plates to the lighter color of the table. I adore the sprig of rosemary on each place setting.
The next idea isn’t a full tablescape, but I love what Katie from The Casual Craftlete did to transform these little pumpkins. Add in some candlesticks or pillar candles in a hurricane vases and you’d have a great centerpiece for a Thanksgiving table.
Laura Kate from Lady & Laura Kate designed her first Thanksgiving tablescape for her square kitchen table and I love the small pops of color against the neutral background. I have a serious thing for boxwood and the little sprigs on each plate with the tags are so cute!
So much inspiration for a beautiful and welcoming Thanksgiving tablescape! It’s going to be hard to decide which ideas to adopt for my own table 🙂
