BRING THE OUTDOORS IN
One of the telltale signs that Fall is here is when the leaves begin to change, and a variety of orange-hued, seasonal plants find their way to the garden. Setting your table with these natural elements evokes the crisp air and cozy feelings that Fall offers! Consider using foliage from your yard or opt for faux garland and stems to set the stage for your Thanksgiving soiree. Shop our favorite faux garlands and stems below:
CREATE A FOCAL POINT
Whether decorating your front porch, table, or even coffee table, we always encourage incorporating varying heights to create a focal point in your space. Consider adding a centerpiece to your Thanksgiving tablescape that tells the story of the season. We love to use large vases, candles, or even a bowl filled with seasonal produce as centerpieces. Check out some of our favorite centerpiece ideas below:
LAYER LINENS AND TEXTILES
The napkins, table runners, and placemats are the key ingredient to creating your Thanksgiving tablescape. These elements ground the table, create your color palette and add an element of texture. Play with different linens and patterns to establish the “theme” of the table and build from there. Shop our favorite linens and textiles below:
ADD YOUR SERVEWARE
With the decor and linens all set in place, it’s time to add the glassware! This presents another opportunity to play with textures and color, but of course, sticking to your everyday dishware works well too. Try to incorporate pretty and functional serving pieces like breadboards, pitchers, or serving trays to display your favorite dishes. We love reaching for traditional feeling pieces like stone, pottery, and family heirlooms for this special holiday. Shop the dinnerware pieces that are inspiring our table:
