Hi, November!! Halloween has passed and it’s time to think about Thanksgiving. I love to have my family around a beautiful table and share a meal. This year we will be keeping it small due to covid with my mom and Luke’s mom and step-dad. Regardless of the size of your gathering, it’s always fun to put together a festive table.
I have posted numerous tablescapes and Thanksgiving decor content for the past 4 years. You can find those older post for more inspo here! This year I wanted to keep it a bit more modern with the place setting and add in some eucalyptus greenery. The garland I found on Etsy is stunning and I can use it over and over again. I purchased the 8′ option however it comes in numerous sizes depending on your table.
I always start by styling the centerpiece first and then move on to the place setting. This is the order I set out the decor: runner, garland, candle sticks, vases, pumpkins. I like to build on the runner to create texture and different heights. Today on Instagram I’m sharing a step-by-step reel of how I put together this table. Make sure to check it out!
For the place setting I used my go-to wood chargers to add a rustic touch. I purchased these 3 years ago and they have been SO worth it! When in doubt, use a charger!! It’s always nice to define a place setting and add an extra design element. Next up I folded my country napkins directly on the wood charger. I then stacked on my everyday porcelain plate and matte white bowl. To add another pop of black, I went with a budget-friendly dark flatware set! Additionally I used a country mason jar for water and a classic stem wine glass. Finally I placed fun calligraphy pumpkin name “cards” to personalize each setting. Unfortunately these are sold out but I found some other fun options here: leaf, pumpkin and kraft tag.
Remember you don’t have to buy new plates, bowls, flatware and glasses for occasions. Keep it simple and have fun with the centerpiece and name cards/tags!
