Ten Terrific Thanksgiving Table Settings

I’m not sure how Thanksgiving got here so soon but if you are planning your meal and getting your home ready to host guests, we’ve got help with a roundup of amazing table settings for your Thanksgiving meal with friends and family.

First, be sure to stop by the shops for all your tableware, utensil holders, favors, table place cards, and centerpieces.

See the ten amazing Thanksgiving tables below to inspire you this holiday season.

Table 1 – Traditional with fall leaves, gold charges, and rustic Kraft boxes.  A simple, yet elegant setting.

Table 2 – Natural florals and lighted wax candles for height adorn this setting.  Note the personalized place cards placed over each plate with the napkin on the plate, rather than to the side.

Table 3 – This is a fabulous outdoor setting – perfect for a warmer climate where Thanksgiving can be celebrated outside in the milder temperatures. That apple wagon cart makes a big centerpiece statement.

Table 4 – Accented with elements of black and owls as the main focus, this Thanksgiving table is unique, yet still pulls in the traditional theme of autumn.

Table 5– Classic with bold statements of height. The tablecloth is all about the standard fall leaves at a Thanksgiving table but those raised pumpkins really make the whole setting pop.  The simple white background tablecloth and braided rope chargers keep this table inexpensive but definitely not boring or plain.

Table 6– Navy, red, and berry colors adorn this table in high style. The added neutral fabric pumpkins and natural greenery ground the otherwise whimsical table set up.

Table 7 – Tables that feature printed utensil holders or utensil pockets are the most stylish. Taking the silverware off the table and placing it front and center on the plate will impress guests.

Table 8 – Plaid is very popular this season in fashion, home decor, and bedding- so why not add it to the table as well.  It works well with vintage copper pieces and peasant feathers.

Table 9 – This is less of a dining setting but just as important for a fall birthday.  Drawing from the season with added sunflowers this creative birthday party with a serving food table is perfect in autumn.

Table 10 – Finally, don’t forget to decorate the kid’s table at Thanksgiving.  Although not all families have a separate seating area for the kids, it is not at all excluding them. When they are under a certain age, most are bored by the adult conversation and want to sit together. Plus having a fun activity, such as coloring or putting together their own small puzzles can be enjoyable for both the kids and adults.

Apple Stand Bonus – If you missed the lemonade stand from our summer party ideas, no worries- this fall apple cider and pumpkin pie stand would be so fun for all your guests.  Great in the backyard for the kids too!

Don’t forget to stop by the shops to get your Thanksgiving and Christmas table set up in style and for all your Christmas decorating-
