With Thanksgiving just around the corner and families heading over, we are all thinking about how to decorate the main gathering area for the holiday…the table! Are you wanting to make it look a little more festive than pizza night on the weekend with the kids? I’m always looking for new ideas and here are some settings that really inspire me and are easy enough that you can use things already in your house, or backyard.
I always feel under pressure to set the table right, especially when there’s guests. If you’re like me, and still a little confused where the soup spoon goes, then check out the place setting chart below!
Love the soft gold. Pick a main color and go with it. The elegant placemats can go with any holiday or special occasion. So simple and elegant.
Take out the special plates and use a pear as a decor or attach a name tag around it for fun. Berries can be used in so many different ways. Love how they are set along the table. Easy, quick and very pretty.
Oh I just love the fall colored roses on the table. Most of us have white plates, white linens and white serving trays. The roses add beauty, warmth and elegance. Classy. Love this!
Adding white pumpkins are a pretty centerpiece, since they have a clean fresh look. And the berries in the candle bases and wrapped around the pumpkins dress up the table.
Grab some leaves from the yard, pine cones and simple fall colored flowers and use them like a table runner.
Mixing modern and traditional. Love the pop of color and the subtle traditional table runner.
Why not bring the cabin to the city. Using wood decor pieces (can find in a lot of home stores), fall leaves and white accessories. Fresh, simple, classy.
And if you want to go all out – grab some sticks, put them in a vase with rice, tie string to a few pumpkins and start decorating!! Fun and festive!
