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-

Thanksgiving & Fall Porch Decorating Ideas

25 Fall Porch Decorating Ideas To Greet Your Guests For Thanksgiving

It’s time to transition from Halloween to Fall home decor to greet your guests in style for your upcoming Thanksgiving gathering.  Before you start planning your Thanksgiving dinner menu, today I have 25 ideas to get you going in the right direction for decorating your porch for a stunning autumn front entrance.

Having a seasonally decorated front porch helps to create a mood within your home as well as stating something deeper about your personality. By going with simpler decorations, you can communicate to others that you appreciate simple yet stylish touches. Through your choice of decorations, you can also make your porch a more inviting space for visitors during the fall season.

Effective fall decorating is all about choosing the right combination of color palettes and schemes. With fall decorations, this means combining browns, oranges, yellows, reds and greens in a way that is pleasing to the eye and right for your porch space.

When choosing from different fall porch decors, it is important to take the overall style of your home into consideration. The wrong porch decorations could detract from your home’s charm if not done correctly. You should take time to consider different fall porch design ideas and choose one that works best for your porch.

Before we get to the stunning 25 fall porches, but sure to stop by any of my Etsy shops for all your fall home decor, tableware, Thanksgiving favors and more-

5 Fabulous Fall Vignettes for Fall Home Decorating

FALL HOME DECORATING

Can you feel fall in the air yet? I have been getting excited about the change of season that is slowly starting in our part of the country. Fall is the most beautiful season and fall home decorating is my favorite. I love the cooler temperatures, the gorgeous colors, and all of the amazing home decor. It is the perfect time of year to do any big renovations too, such as a glass staircase from Pear Stairs. I can’t think of anything that would be better. Before getting to the five fall vignettes, I wanted to tell you what I have been up to lately.

I have been busy getting all my shops and my home ready for autumn the past two weeks and plan to open up my own home for you, here on the blog, for a fall home tour soon!

Stop by all my shops below to see what’s new in fall home decor, Halloween party favors, spooky decorations and more-

5 Fabulous Fall Vignettes

Today, I wanted to give you some tips on creating fall vignettes in your own home! First, what the heck is a “vignette”? In decorating, a vignette is a small grouping of objects that creates a pleasing focal point. Basically, its an arrangement of home decor ornaments, florals, and seasonal decorations on your side tables, coffee table, fireplace mantel, dining room buffet and table, kitchen island and anywhere else in the home that you have a surface space to decorate. For example it can create a relaxing and cozy atomsphere in the bedroom, giving you that fall experience, imagine enjoying a good book on your mattress from somewhere like Leesa, while basking in the autumn ambience. Here are five fabulous fall vignettes to inspire you to decorate your home for the season-

First, let’s start small with a coffee table vignette. How easy is this- a tray or a farmhouse style wooden box filled with fall artificial florals and a faux pumpkin and electric candles create a stunning focal point in the living room and does not take up too much space. This setup is perfect on your dining room table at Thanksgiving too. I have a much skinnier and longer farmhouse style wooden box that I transition every season on my dining room table.

Next, go big if you have a large fireplace in your home. I have a huge fireplace and it seems like it always feels empty, no matter how much I add to the mantle, – so don’t be afraid to add height and layer this area in your home. I generally stick to the rule of three or five items grouped together but a large oversized fireplace and mantel can be the exception. The repetition here of the metal wall architectural hanging and the wreaths works perfectly and does not feel overly busy.

Don’t forget to add some fall decor to the kitchen, as with this small side buffet. If you need some free fall art for your home, be sure to visit my previous post for – 25 free fall printables to add some seasonal art to your home.

I love the added bicycle in the vignette above, for a little unexpected ornamentation. Mums are wonderful for the home, but keep in mind while they add a pop of color and nature inside the home, they won’t do as well indoors, versus potted outside on your porch. I recommend, purchasing a few lower priced mums that you can add to decorative containers, just before a family gathering or party to add around the home and move them outside after your event is over. This way you will extend their life and did you know you can actually plant them in your garden at the end of fall and they will come back next year!

Next, are two very different fall decorated entry side tables –

This is fall elegance at its best. The neutral colors of this fall vignette are just as wonderful as traditional bright fall shades. The added simple grapevine wreath over the mirror draws the eye up too for added height.

Finally, this side table near the entry, may be simple but it makes a dramatic statement. You can do this on any table in your home. The created table runner is just burlap fabric, tied at each end with some fun fall ribbon. This vignette only features three decorative pieces on it too but it works as a total eye-catcher with the even height at each end and lower pumpkin centerpiece under glass.
