Once the halloween decorations are down, it’s time to plan for Thanksgiving. After that, it’s Christmas decorations and the many things to do during Christmas, but that’s for another post. Let’s focus on Thanksgiving and how you’re going to decorate the table to go with your beautiful spread of food.
Here we’ve listed a few of our favorite designs, browse through them for inspiration.
1. Personalized Mini Pumpkins.
Go to a nearby farmer’s market this month for an unlimited supply of pumpkins, mini-pumpkins, gourds, and more. Use them as place settings for your guests with their names decorated straight on the pumpkin, or with a note-card. It’s thoughtful, well-designed, and just looks so good next to food.

2. Fall florals.
Flowers are a quick and easy way to transform anything. Opt for orange and yellows, with berries or mini fruits/vegetables to create an eye-catching design. Of course re-use those mini pumpkins and layer them around the table for bright splashes of color. Check out homeyohmy does it to recreate your own ethereal Thanksgiving Table.
3. Beautiful area rug
Don’t forget under the table! Rugs are important in holding a room together, but even more important is their design and how they can complement your Thanksgiving table. You can go either neutral or all out. Let the eye rest on a Bessarabian Kilim Rug that offers neutral abstract calming patterns, or blow your guests away upon first entrance with an intricately designed Floral Rug. Colors like a bold blue, will pair beautifully with the orange and browns on the table. Opt for something with texture so your guests can feel it under their feet. Don’t forget, design isn’t just for the eyes!
4. Feather and Corks
Use this ingenious DIY hack by CarolynShomework to create pretty little feather stands. Use them as name cards or just place them around the table for a quirky accent to your table. Your guests can even take them home after as little memoirs and gifts.
5. Antique turkey plates
Use antique plates like the one pictured above for a great traditional touch to your dinner. Antiques look good with anything, so don’t be afraid to mix and match when you use these plates. Gold accents catch your eye, and food instantly tastes better when eaten off beautiful plates.
