After admitting in yesterday’s brie toast and cranberry appetizer recipe that I wasn’t secretly happy the holiday season was here, this roundup of Thanksgiving table decor probably isn’t a surprise. The stress of decorating for Christmas can be overwhelming, but the joy (and simplicity) of sprucing up your holiday table is so easy and can be done without a lot of fanfare. These Thanksgiving table decor ideas all use greens, flowers, and seasonal produce that’s inexpensive and easy to get your hands on (and easy to transition into your natural winter home decor). . .
This simple table centerpiece combines eucalyptus leaves (a recurring item in these ideas) with beautiful red apples and ivory pillar candles. I love the look of candles, but since these are set up without a holder or vase, I’d consider a flameless pillar candle (in ivory). It’ll be safer and save you any waxy cleanup!
I’m such a sucker for mini pumpkins and especially white pumpkins. So many of the Thanksgiving table decor setups I’ve seen have name tags. I don’t know about your family, but assigned seating just wouldn’t fly in my family.
I do love the idea of beautiful place settings, however. This simple setup includes a basic woven charger (a year round item really), dinner and salad plates, a napkin, and the cute white pumpkin.
As for those cute assigned seating ideas, I did see some options for using the same idea but writing “grateful” or something similar. If you’re at a small family gathering (or hosting an easy Friendsgiving get-together), you could even write out the family name if you want!
I’m not exactly sure which part of this beautiful setup is my favorite, so let’s just talk about them all. Under the tiered white marble tray (I also love this rounded plate tiered server) are a ton of eucalyptus leaves and flowers. I see white dahlias, mini roses, and (I think) elderberries. It’s a magnificent setup made with simply beautiful pieces.
Now for the other details. The Thankful napkin ring is such a perfect touch. There’s also this turkey napkin ring that isn’t too over the top! It pairs perfectly with the gold silverware, pink napkin, and that adorable pink champagne coupe glass. And here’s a list of everything you need for the perfect Thanksgiving Appetizer Board setup!
And last but certainly not least is this pumpkin, nut, and fig leaf centerpiece. In addition to an assortment of pumpkins in all shapes, sizes, and colors, layer the fig leaves and nuts in the shell. This idea also uses small votive candles (a flameless option). I think these glass candle holders would be the perfect final touch in this setup. Although the centerpiece is easy and fun, however, it’s the plaid tablecloth that really makes this setup work.
