Ideas & Inspirations For The Perfect Thanksgiving Tablescape

Some of my best childhood memories are from the holidays when my aunts, uncles, and cousins would join us for a great big Thanksgiving dinner. My mom would break out the good China and the table would be simply gorgeous. So, needless to say, Thanksgiving has become one of my favorite holidays of the season and decorating the table has become an important part of creating that special festive mood. So I thought I’d put together some inspirations for creating your own special Thanksgiving tablescape.

1. Pillar Candles – Set of 3 

2. 120 Artificial Fall Maple Leaves in a Mixture of Autumn Colors 

3. Assorted Pumpkins and Gourds 

4. Dried berry garland

5. Ruffled Linen Table Runner in Off-White


If you’re looking for an even easier way to put your Thanksgiving tablescape together, this Thanksgiving Table Setting Kit comes with everything you need for a beautiful table all in one box. It includes a table cloth, taffeta table runner, 10 napkins and napkin ties, and decorative autumn accents, i.e. leaves, gourds, etc.


The kit is also available in a neutral burlap.


Another idea for a Thanksgiving center piece is to use a wreath or other door hanging, like this Pumpkins Berries and Burlap Ribbon Hanging.

If you use a wreath, try placing candles at it’s center!

These Autumn Harvest Gold and Sequin Pumpkins are adorable. Either group several together with some tall candles or spread them across the table. Perhaps even use two-sided tape to attach place setting cards to them. Then have your guests each take theirs home with them as a gift.

I love the simplicity and classic look of a white table cloth. It gives you the opportunity to accessorize with any color. But there are also so many other options besides white to dress up your table, like this gorgeous Ralph Lauren Thanksgiving Harvest Leaf Damask Tablecloth.


Now that you’ve got some table decor ideas, we need dishes. This Lenox French Perle Setting in White is perfect for special occasions.

The fine gold rim is just enough for a special touch without overwhelming the design.

And these Mikasa French Countryside Crystal Goblets are perfect for water, wine, or some spiced cider.

So there you have it. I hope these ideas have sparked some special inspiration for your own special Thanksgiving tablescape.

Happy Holidays!
