Eat, Drink, and Give Thanks: Thanksgiving Table Inspiration

Believe it or not, Thanksgiving is only a little over a week away!  If you’re like us, it’s kind of sneaking up on you this year.  Which means you probably don’t have everything ready to go yet.  Hopefully the menu is at least planned, but do you know what the table is going to look like yet?  Place settings can really help set the scene, and also easily tell people where they’re sitting for dinner.  Even if you want to keep things simple, you can still spice things up with a dramatic focal point.  A table doesn’t have to be over the top to be beautiful and inviting.

The best starting point for planning your Thanksgiving table is to choose a color scheme.  Traditional fall and Thanksgiving colors are usually rich and warm reds, oranges, golds, and browns – the colors you see most outside during autumn.  More pastel Thanksgiving color palettes have become popular in recent years though, with creamy whites, sage greens, and rose golds creating a more modern look.  Incorporate elements of nature for easy, elegant embellishments; they also help show your thankfulness for nature and the world around you.  Don’t be afraid to mix textures and patterns when setting your Thanksgiving table as well.  Thanksgiving is a bit of a rustic holiday, so feel free to break out the burlap and wood to create lovely contrasts with the sleek smoothness of your dishes.

Enough words, here are some pretty pictures to inspire you.
