Two simple and elegant Thanksgiving tablescape ideas!
Hello all! I hope you’re staying healthy and happy!
No matter how you’re celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday — I say do it up right! If there was ever a year to be extra, this is it! I thought it would be fun to do a tablescape since I haven’t done one in forever. I did two looks…one more neural and one with color.
I absolutely love how they turned out! Both are simple table displays that could easily be changed up just a bit for Christmas as well.
For the colorful look I started with this fall scarf draped over the table and then added everything on top:

You don’t have to just use table linens for a tablescape, just like you can use linens to make other stuff around the house too! 😉 Change it up with a thin blanket or seasonal scarf draped over the table instead.
I use a ton of dark blue and green in our house and thought it would be pretty to incorporate those colors. I used this chalky Krylon spray paint in the color Anvil Gray to coat a few of the faux, bright orange pumpkins I have in my stash:
I LOVE this color and am trying to figure out where else I can use it!
I layered up my favorite dishes and added those simple tags to mini cutting boards with leather string. (Found those boards at Hobby Lobby half off — $2 each!):
I layered my olive branches and a few eucalyptus leaves in the middle and it turned out beautifully! I’ll list everything I used at the bottom of the post in case you’re interested.
Those brass candlesticks are a staple — I use them all year round. They are a classic! Mine are vintage but you can find similar brass candlesticks here.
The “vase” in the middle is a soup crock. 😉 You can see here how I added some of the blue and green pumpkins throughout the greenery:
I had to get a night shot! There’s nothing better than candles right?
Here’s a full shot of the colorful Thanksgiving tablescape:
I think the wood shows off the greenery even more!
Have you ever used baby’s breath alone? It’s so beautiful and so underrated. I’ve done this a few times over the years and it’s lovely:
Isn’t that champagne colored flatware so pretty? They were only $2 each at Target! Perfect when you don’t really need a full five-piece set.
If you’re celebrating turkey day with your immediate family or extended, it doesn’t take much to dress up the table. Hopefully these simple tablescape ideas inspire you!:
As I mentioned, this could easily be switched up for Christmas! That greenery works beautifully all year.

Our table was from a local shop in Indy, but I link a similar one below. Our water goblets are from Goodwill. You can click on the photos to get the sources. 🙂 If I forgot anything please let me know!
