To make our table Thanksgiving ready, it’s essential to have an amazing fall centerpiece. Whether you want to do some florals in a vase, a candle holder with candles, a pumpkin, or even a decor turkey, a centerpiece will bring it all together. Think color when choosing this tablescape. This season is all about harvest, and the amazing colors that come with that – so embrace it, and make that table something to show off!
Linens are your next stop for creating the perfect Thanksgiving Tablescape. With the linens, think natural colors. Natural rust and orange colors, browns, tans, beiges – all those warm, naturally occurring colors in the outdoors. Start with either the darkest or lightest color, and go lighter or darker as you go. For example, if you want to go dark with the table cloth, go in with lighter shades for the placemats, table runner, napkins and so forth. If you want to start light with the tablecloth, go in with darker shades for the rest of the linens.
THE LITTLE THINGS
On top of the basics, there are so many cute little things that you can add to make the table that much more special. Maybe you want to add some place setting cards, or some leaf-inspired serving dishes, or maybe just some simple decor elements. Whatever it is, make sure to make your table represent all that you are, and all that this holiday is about!
