Thanksgiving is just around the corner and it’s time to get the details planned. You’ve got the food planned and people coming, but why not make the space where you’re eating just as inviting? Add the beauty of the holiday to the beauty of your home with these few simple tips to make your Thanksgiving more magical than ever.
Add candle light.
Candles of various height can be a great centerpiece for Thanksgiving. You most likely already have them in your home scattered in various rooms. Gather them all and add plain white candles or festive fall colors such as oranges, reds and browns. A simple plate with a festive boarder paired with simple gold rimmed glasses are sure to make a statement. A pumpkin can serve as a great place card holder! Either attach a label around the pumpkins stem or write the name directly on the side.
Perhaps you’re more of a minimalist and you don’t want to clutter your table with too much decoration. If that’s the case, make use of a solid and bold autumn colored table cloth and then add a contrasting color of cloth napkins to create an inviting accent. Run a gold ribbon along the middle with the dishes set on top of them. Stand back and smile. It will look beautiful!
A simple flower arrangement will add height to your table and can be achieved in a matter of minutes. Go out to your garden and snip some greenery as your base then add flowers, berries and branches! Keep it simple. Add an elegant1 runner to draw the eye to the center of the table. Leaves can be used as name tags by simply using puff paint and glitter! This is a great project to do with the kids! Finish off your table display by adding a fresh sprig of rosemary to each white plate adding a nice contrast against the leaf.
Foraged centerpiece. Instead of raking away the leaves that are sprinkled on your lawn, save a few and use 2-3 types of different colored leaves to create simple base for your low laying centerpiece. Add in various types of pumpkins, squash and gourdes. Enhance your farm to table look with a statement charger, paired with a simple plate. Lastly, an old tree stump when sliced into disks make for a wonderful name card!
