Hey friends! It’s only 15 days till Thanksgiving (& 44 days till Christmas, but who’s counting?). I’m sharing how I styled my table for Thanksgiving this year & sharing a few ideas.
So, here’s what I set up!
I started my centerpiece on a large, traditional turkey platter I inherited from my Great-Grandmother & began filling it up with floral pieces, a pumpkin, a cornucopia & a large glass hurricane.
I used gold chargers & plain white plates. You can find almost any color plate at the Dollar Tree by the way! It’s a super cheap way to match any theme/holiday. Plus, white plates are oh so versatile. Last year, I used vinyl to dress them up with fall motifs including antlers, feathers & pinecones. See more on those over here.
A burlap runner ran short ways down the table to change things up a bit.
I added these super simple smaller centerpieces down the length of the table. I spray painted mason jars gold then scuffed them up a bit with sandpaper. I filled them up with various turkey feathers/ other Thanksgiving-y looking feathers. You can find them at craft stores, or from your friendly turkey-hunting neighbor. You could tie some twine around the top of the jar too.
I used my cricut to cut out some leaves to double as place settings/ thankful cards. You can cut these by hand of course if you don’t have a machine.
Did you catch my agate slice coasters? One of my favorite details! they add both texture & color to the table.
I set out brass glasses I picked up at an antique store alongside various amber princess house glass/etched gold leaf glasses I found at the thrift store.
I used all kinds of fall fillers in between the large pieces on the tray & even stuck in a long turkey feather. I sat a large pillar candle on top of a can for added height & wrapped twigs around it to hide the base.
I have been putting together thankful trees for Thanksgiving since I was in jr. high. It is definitely one of my favorite traditions. I gather twigs/sticks from outside & stick them in sort of jar. Then I cut out leaves & attach string to each one, like an ornament. You can punch holes or slide a safety pin through, like I did here. Then tie loops through the holes or pins & they are ready for hanging. I like for everyone to write their name on one side & what they’re thankful for on the other. Everyone is encouraged to write at least 1 thing, but are welcome to fill the tree with leaves if they like. You can see my first thankful tree post here.
Hope you’ve found some great ideas for your own table! What are your Thanksgiving traditions?
