Thanksgiving is a little over a week away, so planning is in full swing. If you are still working on ideas for your table setting design and haven’t landed on that perfect tablescape yet, no worries. There is no lack of wonderful ideas out there. In fact, I’ve found so many creative Thanksgiving table settings that this month I broke them up into one post a week every Tuesday to spread the inspiration. Due to some technical difficulties, this week’s Tabletop Tuesday is, in fact, on Wednesday. But let’s overlook that tiny detail, shall we? 😉 You can still check out the first Tabletop Tuesday post for more Thanksgiving table ideas. If you need a reminder of how to properly set a table, hop on over to the second week’s edition with an easy guide to a proper table setting. Now, onto the beautiful ideas! With the warm and sunny weather we have in Florida this time of year, it’s not surprising that Thanksgiving dinner is often served outside. Here are some outdoor Thanksgiving table ideas to inspire your alfresco dining.
Outdoor Thanksgiving Table Ideas
1 Thinking outside the box with your table settings can produce some great results, like using cutting boards as chargers. These look like they were just cut straight from a tree.
2 Don’t be afraid to appreciate simplicity. This coastal table lets the amazing food be the focal point, popping on a red runner.
3 This table uses similar round wood chargers as shown in photo one, this time to elevate candles in the centerpiece as well as for chargers. The pumpkins and gourds add extra fall flavor.
4 White runners break up the brown table cloth and designate place settings. The floral arrangement adds color and a touch of fall.
5 Feel free to break tradition with your color scheme and go with a light, airy palette. For an outdoor feast, hanging some lanterns from a tree will add a touch of whimsy.
6 A long plank of wood acts as the perfect centerpiece for this extra long table and a great spot for place cards.
7 For a long table, decorating in threes can help expand and balance your centerpiece. The glass candle holders accented with corn really bring the fall spirit to the table.
These inspiring tables remind me to think outside the box with accessories and color schemes to create a table setting that is truly unique. What are your plans for the holiday; are you dining indoors or outdoors?
