Thanksgiving Tablescape Ideas
Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate all that we are thankful for with food, family, and friends! Dress up your table this year with some of these beautiful Thanksgiving tablescape ideas!
Today I am excited to be in a blog hop with some of my favorite friends! If you aren’t familiar with what a blog hop is, you simply hop from one blog to the next (the link to the next is at the bottom of this post)! If you’re landing here at Boxwood Avenue from French Country Cottage, welcome!! I hope you are inspired by these Thanksgiving tablescape ideas!
I recently visited Elsie Green in the bay area for Heather Bullard’s styling workshop. During the practice portion of the workshop I couldn’t figure out what I wanted to shoot, but then I remembered I was teaming up with Rooms for Rent, French Country Cottage, My Sweet Savannah, and Nina Hendrick Design to share our Thanksgiving table ideas!
So I started to have a little fun! I pulled a collection of ironstone plates, vintage flatware, a mixture of glassware, and beautiful dark linens…
I compiled all of the beautiful things I found around the EG shop and began to create a simple tabletop full of vintage items from France.
A simple centerpiece…
Use a shallow platter to put together a low centerpiece perfect for Thanksgiving dinner!
As a simple centerpiece I added pumpkins and foliage into an oblong ironstone serving platter. I layered in different branches with acorns & various colored leaves, then anchored them down with a few pumpkins and finished off the centerpiece with some votives!
A collected table.
Mix & match glassware, flatware, and plates for a collected table.
Simply keep the general shape and size similar so that there is a single thread that ties the table together!
I find that the most beautiful tables have layers that add texture and dimension. I used a large plate as the base layer, then sandwiched beautiful linen napkins between a salad plate. I love the vintage nature of ironstone, especially when each piece is ever so slightly different.
Instead of setting the flatware out, I decided to stack them on top of the plates nestled next to a miniature pumpkin. I love how simple and beautiful this is without adding too many extra details. The only thing I might add is a handwritten place setting because I feel that they make guests feel appreciated and loved!
I hope you gathered a few ideas from this tablescape to add to your Thanksgiving table this year! Will you be celebrating at home or will you be traveling to visit family? This year, I am hosting, and I am very excited!
