Thanksgiving Table Inspiration

Every year my thanksgiving table is somewhat plain and nothing to remember. The reason for this is more than likely that I forget thanksgiving decor all together and jump straight into Christmas.  This year I am channeling my inner Martha Stewart and decided to create a turkey table to remember.  The colors this fall that are catching my eye the most are all the plums, Burgundy, and cranberry shades. So that was the inspiration for my table top.

I used these pottery barn napkins I already had and had them monogrammed with the silhouette of a turkey. I know I know…its adorable.  Next, I pulled out my Vera Wang china for a closer look at what colors would match for my table setting.

My table is a dark stained wood.  I kept things light with this light grey table cloth from Meijers grocery store. This makes all the difference. Honestly, this is the first time I have ever bought a table cloth and I kind of loved it.

Because I always go nuts with my christmas decor I kept my budget small for thanksgiving decor. These placements are also from Meijer at just a few dollars a piece. I loved the Burberry style and the grocery store price.

I used these plum napkins for the heads of the table to change it up a little. I try to always incorporate a little something special on the table for holidays. I added a little fun to the table with these fancy chocolates.  They turned out pretty spectacular…and yummy and I loved adding a little something extra for kicks (future blog post spoiler alert…my Christmas table treat is pretty awesome too).

I have an empty corner in the dining area. So I put this ottoman in the space with a cozy blanket and pillows to match the space. It was something I just threw together but it completely changed the space and added some extra seating.

To keep things warm and inviting I also make sure to step up my lighting.  Improve the ambiance with real candles on the table. Personally, I love candles throughout the space.  My guest always go nuts for my favorite faux flickering candles (in the background). My dinner parties/holiday parties always have a bit of soft music and maybe even some fun dinner games and icebreakers.  Thanksgiving is a perfect time to go around and table to find out what everyone is thankful for.  Oh and don’t forget the wine or a fun themed party drink.

  1. I have table envy!! I’m not sure mine could ever look like that but i really love your use of burgundy and might try that this year! Beautiful!

  2. Looks great! I hadn’t done my table either for years until this year! I enjoyed it so much. This gives me inspiration to go a lil bit fancier for my Christmas table décor next month!

  3. So pretty! I especially love the centerpiece, although it would 100% get knocked over and set my table on fire at this house – we have some enthusiastic eaters! Haha.

  4. I am in love with your centerpiece of pumpkins and hydrangeas! Beautiful table and I’m sure it will be a special day for you.

  5. Wow! I love how you changed up the napkins for the heads of the table. And of course everyone will love the fancy chocolate- nice touch!!
