Fall Table Setting Ideas Week 3. Yesterday I enjoyed bringing you 20 fun and clever ideas for the kids’ Thanksgiving table. Today I have another fabulous setting design for the adults’ table. Thanksgiving is a favorite holiday for many. Families get together to spend time with one another and remember what it is they are thankful for. There’s also football, cooler weather and fabulous food. You can’t go wrong with that combination! The task I love most? You guessed it! Setting the table. That’s why each Tuesday until Thanksgiving, I’m sharing fabulous fall table settings that I’ve found. I hope that they’ll give you lots of inspiration for your table. This week is a traditional style design with a fabulous table runner you can make yourself.

Fall Table Setting Ideas
When I first saw this tablescape, I noticed that it was such a lovely traditional design. Then as I looked at it more closely, I realized how many marvelous elements it really contains. Specialty napkins, personalized menus and an amazing table runner combine to create a fantastic Thanksgiving table. Amanda at Amanda’s Parties to Go hasn’t missed a thing on this table!
Let’s start with the napkins. She took plain muslin and added brown ribbon trim and lace. Then she embellished them with some inexpensive jewelry pieces she found at the craft store. She says these aren’t the quickest project, but the time spent is well worth it because they’re beautiful. I have to agree!
I love the idea of the custom menus at each place setting, too. It makes the dinner seem even more special. For the centerpiece, notice how she elevated some of the ghourds on a cake platter and accented the display with feathers. Small pine cones and fall leaves bring added interest to the ghourds sitting on the table. Plain candles are dressed up, wrapped in burlap and decorative paper. Lovely place cards help everyone find their seat.
The most outstanding element for me has to be the table runner. It’s made out of corn husks and burlap. I love how the corn husks look like a ruffle. This is an inexpensive and simple project that makes a major statement on this table. Amanda has an easy-to-follow tutorial, so you can whip up your own.
I hope you enjoyed today’s table setting idea. Be sure to check out the other festive Thanksgiving table setting ideas I’ve found for you so far.
