Every Thanksgiving, I like to switch my tablescape up a bit. Since I’m thrifty by upbringing, I’m not talking about going out and spending tons of money on new plates, silverware, and centerpieces every year.
I’m talking about changing things up by adding fresh flowers, DIY menu boards, simple centerpieces, inexpensive or vintage linens, or crafty accents.
It goes without saying (but here I am saying it anyway 😉 )that the people at the Thanksgiving table are the most important, however, there’s nothing wrong with trying to make you or your guests feel extra special with a mini table refresh.
One of the cheapest ways to refresh and renew table decor is by using elements from nature. Items you can incorporate into your tablescape include Fall leaves, seasonal fruits and vegetables, acorns, wheat stalks, and free printables.
If you’re looking for a bit of inspiration, Pinterest is a great place to find it but it can also be a time suck. One thing leads you to another thing and then you end up over here in the dark corners of the internet and before you know it, two hours have gone by! I feel you. Been there and done that.
To help us both out, I’ve curated a list of 21 Thanksgiving Table Decor Ideas that range from simple to elegant. The one thing that they all have in common? You can easily recreate the look at home.
It’s nice to look at those beautiful tablescapes in home decor magazines but for many of us, they’re not realistic. We need table decor ideas that:
- can withstand kids
- hold up to that one relative that’s always knocking stuff over and
- can be repurposed for multiple seasons.
No matter what your budget is, I hope you find a few tablescape ideas that you love or you find a few projects that spark inspiration.
We’re all about inspiration around here. It’s why we do what we do!
