Inspiration for your Thanksgiving tablescapes, whether you lean towards light and bright or traditional and classic.
Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays with it’s emphasis on being thankful for what we already have and spending time with our family and friends. I always want to give it the due it deserves, even if it tends to get swallowed up by that “other” holiday, a-hem.
And since the holiday is focused on food and a meal, it makes sense to spend just a bit of time making the table look the part! My tables are never fussy, though there have been times I’ve had fun and created a few special crafts for the table. For the most part, pumpkins, leaves, and candles are my go-to Thanksgiving tablescape favorites, but I do like to change it up a little each year to make the table feel special.
Which is why I love browsing through Pinterest (you can follow my Thanksgiving Ideas board here) and Blogland to see, and be inspired by, what others are doing. I’ve found some incredibly unique and beautiful tables I want to share with you, along with a few of my own from years past. I hope you find inspiration here to do a little something different with your table this year!
