Thanksgiving is right around the corner and for those of us playing hostess, it will be an opportunity to share not just great food, but a beautiful table setting. When I host Thanksgiving at our house, one of my favorite things about it is decorating the table. That’s why I’m doing a series of posts between now and Christmas every Tuesday called Tabletop Tuesday, where I’ll share ideas to inspire you for your table settings over the holidays. Thanksgiving will be here before we know it, so I’m going to kick things off with the first batch of 10 beautiful Thanksgiving table settings.
Thanksgiving Table Settings
1 Mini pumpkins hang from branches as a centerpiece for this festive fall table, anchored by simple vases filled with birdseed. Some gourds, berries, and yellow candles add a lot of life to the setting.
2 This garden-inspired table is simple and elegant with an amber, white, and silver color palette. Using chalices as plant holders is a great idea to add some luxury to the setting.
3 Metallic accents add dimension to this copper, orange, and brown table setting, not to mention a few well-placed roses.
4 You don’t have to feel limited to warmer tones for a Thanksgiving table setting. Lighter tones of fall colors like a buttery yellow with accents of green and maroon are festive and airy.
5 This table setting has a rustic, antiqued feel with its muted color palette, aged pumpkins and wispy foliage. The quilt layered over the coffee table makes it feel cozy and comfortable.
6 Apothecary jars and glass vases hold colorful accents, while metallic pumpkins add some glam and pop against the dark wood table. A few smaller orange pumpkins sprinkle some extra color through the setting.
7 I love the understated elegance of this contemporary table setting. Painting the gourds was an inspired idea, especially in metallic copper and silver.

8 Unique elements from nature create the bouquets in the urns on the table, such as cotton and pheasant feathers, inspiring us to think outside the box. With a simple palette of copper, white and neutrals this setting is clean and elegant.
9 This table setting shows that simple can be lovely. Pine cones make a perfect stand for place cards and the purple table cloth is an unconventional yet very pretty choice for a color palette.
10 Here’s another example of an unconventional purple color palette for a Thanksgiving table setting. It’s all based around a tartan plaid table cloth, with purple candlesticks and cherries to pop against white dishes and pumpkins.
Are you excited to try something new for your Thanksgiving table setting this year?
