Are you hosting Thanksgiving at your home this year? If so, give your loved ones a warm welcome this holiday season. Whether you’re still holding onto fall or you’re completely decorated for Christmas, celebrate this special time of year with a beautiful table—transitional or autumnal. Below, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite tablescapes we’ve seen around the web for inspiration for your holiday table. To see even more unique tablescape style, view our entire collection.
Eucalyptus and Pumpkins
If you’re still in full autumn swing, then this is the table for you! We love the simplicity of the mixed pumpkins framed by fresh eucalyptus.
Layering is the key to almost everything in design, but especially tablescapes. This table starts out with a table scarf, then a basket of pumpkins crowned with a ceramic pumpkin on a cake stand and two candelabras on the sides. Even the dinnerware is layered beautifully!
These rosemary wreaths would look beautiful on both a Thanksgiving or Christmas table, and they’re so easy to make! Add a place card to the center for a more formal gathering.
Celebrate the glorious harvest season in the easiest way possible—in-season fruit or vegetables!
For our crafty friends, these DIY napkins add a personal touch and are sure to be something your loved ones adore. On the blog post you can find the template for these napkins, or you could even go further and embellish each with your guests’s names.
Garland of Green
If you’re going with a more extravagant approach, craft a garland to go along your table as part of your centerpiece. This one uses two artificial garlands layered together, but we also love the look of DIY herb garlands.
With an olive branch centerpiece and rustic wood throughout, this tablescape from Zevy Joy is perfect for those slowly transitioning from fall to the holiday season!
For an elegant yet rustic neutral approach, use white florals and/or pumpkins for your centerpiece paired with white dinnerware. Wood or copper chargers and an exposed table ground the entire tablescape.
Dried Hydrangeas and Color
Don’t have a house that lends to an autumnal color palette? No problem! Go based off of your dining room’s colors and add in fall touches like dried flowers, pumpkins, or cabbage.
