Setting Your Thanksgiving Table

This Thanksgiving, don’t settle for a boring table setting. On such a special holiday, it’s time to pull out all the stops. You’ve made an extravagant meal, so why not show off that feast? This year, we are sharing ideas for Thanksgiving table settings that will wow your guests. There’s a style for every family, whether your meal is a formal affair or a more casual buffet.

Check out our ideas for spicing up your table decor:

Fancy Thanksgiving Table

Fancy Sit-Down Dinner

Elevate your table’s style for a formal, evening Thanksgiving dinner.

  • Use candlesticks for a warm, elegant feel. We love the idea of painting mismatched candlesticks and grouping several tall and short candles on a table runner.
  • Tall vases with full bouquets really add drama to your dining room. Splurging on one or two nice flower arrangements is a smart move.

Full House Feast

These table setting ideas are perfect for the hostess that’s opening her home to a huge crowd.

  • When your guest list is long, you must keep the table settings simple. The table may be a bit crowded, so you might use one simple table cloth. Place napkins and name tags on each plate to reduce clutter in the center of the table. Use other furniture in the room to display painted pumpkins and fall garland.
  • Kraft paper and burlap are perfect for an autumn dinner. Cover the “kid’s table” with kraft paper and have fun labeling each child’s place and name. The kids can color on it without fear.

Comfortable Buffet

A buffet-style dinner with simple, kid-friendly decor is perfect for the low-key host.

  • Buffets allow you to make a special scene at your dinner table because you don’t have to save room for dishes. Make an extravagant tablescape that will steal the show. Select a mix of succulents, flowers, and acorns to bring life to the table. Find colorful napkins, table linens, and plates, like this bright and fun setting.

Pumpkin Centerpiece

Intimate Meal

Just a few friends and family members joining you this year? Make your table settings pop.

  • Get crafty this November. A pumpkin vase is the perfect centerpiece for a small and cozy meal. Simply cut into the pumpkin as if you were to carve it. Add a vase with water, and arrange your flowers. Add some flair by painting the pumpkin gold.
  • Every guest at your table deserves a special welcome to their seat. Custom place cards make dinner even more extraordinary.
