Can you believe it’s almost Thanksgiving!? I am hosting this year for the first time, woo hoo! That being said – I am so excited to play around with some tablescape ideas. We are having 9 people at house so the table will end up being a little longer and probably not as detailed as what I am showing you today. I have teamed up with a great group of bloggers sharing our Thanksgiving Tablescape so be sure to check them out at the link below!
Here are our Top 5 Tablescape Tips:
1. Mix and Match: Whether it is color, shape, patterns – use what you have to create an eclectic table
2. Layer: Layering different shaped plates make for a unique look and gives a little more style
3. Color: A little color can go a long way – I went on a whim with my table this year with a blue runner to mix it up a bit. You can add color through little decor pieces and cloth napkins
4. Nature: Bring in outdoor leaves; bark, logs, moss, leaves to enhance the fall feel. You can put your outdoor findings in a low heat oven on a lined baking sheet to get rid of any outdoor friends!
5. Minimal: A little can go a long way! A simple line of white votives down the middle of your tablescape sets a clean, elegant look. Very easy and budget friendly!
There is so much inspiration out there to make the perfect table, here are a few of my favorites:
As I mentioned earlier, I went with a blue runner this year. I love fall colors but wanted to mix it up a bit. I found my new favorite blue runner on super sale at Company C over the weekend, I also got one in yellow. Linds got one in green and orange so we’ll have a good little collection! Here are a few ideas we started with. I thought white and red would go well with the blue table runner – how patriotic, right?!
Here is what we ended up with! I love the layered square plates and little details we added. We couldn’t decide between grey and white cloth napkins so went for both. White always makes for such a clean look while the grey napkins complimented the blue and red cranberries. I wish my dining room table always looked this nice!
