As Thanksgiving approaches, getting your home — especially your decor — in tip-top shape is key. Your Thanksgiving table setting can make such a statement for the holiday, bringing some festive vibes but also allowing you to show your personality. Last year, we shared beautiful table setting ideas to get your dining table ready to welcome your guests, and this year, we wanted to do it again! We’re here to help you set your Thanksgiving table like a designer.
We like to start our Thanksgiving table decor ideas with a color palette of browns, oranges and other earth tones, which to us, symbolize Thanksgiving. Adding layers with texture and different materials for plates, chargers, placemats, linens, and silverware will take the setting to a designer level.
What we like about these Thanksgiving table setting ideas is that you can add a special touch to your decor without breaking the bank — just updating your tableware set or linens makes a big difference. The best part? It can be tailored to reflect your own style. So pull from your own closet and just add some Thanksgiving touches.
Don’t forget, too, to create a gorgeous centerpiece to complement these table setting ideas. You can easily create one with candles, fresh flowers and fall leaves.
So gather your family and friends, have a seat around the table, and give thanks over a delicious meal and a gorgeous Thanksgiving table setting.
We hope you like the recommendations our designers prepared. This post contains affiliate links for your convenience.
Thanksgiving Table Setting – Option 1
In Option 1, a warm palette of oranges, browns, and plum is organic and full of depth, welcoming guests to have a seat.
Brown leather placemats allow the simple white dinner plate, fabric-inspired appetizer plate, and rustic black bowls to shine. Matte black silverware is chic, on-trend and coordinates beautifully. A pop of abstract design in the coaster brings a refined touch, while it, plus the simple cocktail glass, are something you’d surely use again. Adding a beautiful bouquet of simple white flowers with lots of greenery acts as a finishing touch.
Table Setting – Option 2
In Option 2, warm browns and oranges are paired with cooler blues and grays, creating an unlikely pairing for a Thanksgiving table setting that totally works.
A wicker charger acts as a visually textural base, while simple, versatile white plates work perfectly against it. A gray napkin, orange, and blue tabletop accessories and glassware tie in the accent colors, and the linen table runner adds warmth and depth to the whole setting. Chic chrome silverware and pearlescent bowls add a touch of shine to the table, too, while a simple fall leaf in the center of each plate adds a charming and festive touch.
