Just in time for the holiday, get inspired by these beautiful tablescapes in designs and hues that match every home aesthetic.

‘Tis the season for gatherings of friends and family. Thanksgiving marks the first big holiday of the season, and I always like to start things off with a bang, especially when it comes to my tablescape.

Whether you dress your Thanksgiving table to the nines like these examples below or you take inspiration from each of these and create your own scaled-down version, your table should welcome guests and make them feel special.

This could mean adding place cards to each setting or favors for guests to take with them or just a beautiful centerpiece you made yourself. The key is to think about these details ahead of the holiday so it’s exactly what it should be — beautiful, not stressful.

Vintage and Chic

For a table that embraces Thanksgiving vibes without feeling overly done, go for a mix of vintage, modern, and rustic finds. Take a floral napkin and use it as inspiration, and then layer it with wood, candles, and heirloom and colored pumpkins. For an extra pop, add a striped table runner and green goblets to pull out that burst of color.

Colorful Table

One of our favorite places to look for tablescape inspiration is Casa de Perrin’s Instagram account. They not only sell some of the most beautiful dinnerware, but they create the most elegant and inspirational tablescapes. This one in particular caught our eye because of the cool color palette. I love when someone takes something so quintessentially fall, like small pumpkins, and flips it on its head.

Monochromatic Magic

I love a little bit of glimmer on any dining table, but I also love when someone does a monochromatic color scheme. This table by Living with Landyn brings both of those ideas together in a beautiful way. She mixed greenery (eucalyptus) along with white and gold pumpkins, antlers, and some rustic touches to create a simple, yet elegant table setting that would work all autumn long.

Traditional and Tasteful

When I look at this table from Home is Where the Boat Is, it immediately makes me think of Thanksgiving. I love the use of traditional fall colors, plaid, Tom Turkey plates, pumpkins, greenery, and candles for a little brilliance.

Rustic and Real

This table is so versatile it could work for Thanksgiving all the way through Christmas. I love the mix of greenery and would add pinecones and wood to create a rustic look. The addition of candles and elegant glassware adds a bit of glamour.

Simple and Modern

This Thanksgiving tablescape from Lemon Thistle could not be easier to create. Just take kraft paper and use it as a tablecloth. Then create place settings on the paper with a black marker. Down the center use hurricane candles, greenery, and some white pumpkins and voila. You have yourself a table that is easy, yet super cool.

Natural Beauty

For a Thanksgiving tablescape that is a little bit of DIY, incorporate some things that are borrowed and other things are bought. It’s the perfect option to show you that you can create a stunning table without having a lot of things to start with. Amy from Homey Oh My started by creating a simple tablescape with natural linens and elegant white plates. As a seasonal touch, fun florals add a pop of color in the center of the table to bring a bit of nature indoors.
