Every year at this time I put together a round-up of my favorite Thanksgiving table inspiration. This year I had a ridiculous amount of photos that I was obsessing over, so I put them into four categories: simple, classic, creative, and glamorous. If you want to see one of the tablescapes I created for Thanksgiving, you can click here. For past years inspiration you can click here, here, and here.
What could be easier than cutting some holes out of a pretty branch and inserting votive candles? Simple and lovely.
Sometimes all you need is a little bittersweet set on each plate to make your table pop.
What about having a knit covered votive candle with a dried leaf at each place setting?
Use nuts to create an autumnal display. I love how easy this would be to recreate!
Of course their is always the ubiquitous mason jars. I am using blue ones for my Thanksgiving table this year, but you could use clear ones, fill the bottom with acorns, and then have candles twinkling inside.
Pumpkins are always welcome on a Thanksgiving table.
Here the designer used the classic pumpkin, but added a special touch by only using green and white. Notice the branches that have been cut to hold candles.
It is always appropriate to use the bounty of the harvest to decorate your table. Use an old slab of wood to elevate your display.
Or you could use a wooden trough or tray to contain your centerpiece.
Instead of glass vases, why not use produce? I love all the colors and textures!
Go bold by choosing one color and contrasting it with bright white.
Brown and blue is an unexpected color combination. The feathers add a delightful touch.
If you are tired of all the browns and oranges, why not add purple to your Thanksgiving table?
Break out your best china and then create an abundance of flowers down the center of your table in bright jewel tones.
Gold is always glamorous.
Try a formal Thanksgiving using printed menus, damask tablecloths, and gilded chargers.
Copper is especially hot right now and I think looks fabulous at a Thanksgiving dinner.
