I get a lot of things from my mom, but one of them is a love of setting the table. While I played with my own pink, orange and grey scheme, I still love perusing pretty tablescapes for turkey day to see what others are doing. I came across all kinds of fun takes on the Thanksgiving table…
#1: I love the modern square plates and the orange & grey pattern on the menu cards at each setting…
#2: I thought this was a clever, inexpensive way to give each place setting its own arrangement — she spray painted TP rolls to hold branches at each plate.
#3: I love the idea of hosting Thanksgiving dinner outdoors if you’re in an area where it’s warm enough. I further liked the idea of playing on a “picnic” dinner by spreading out a cozy blanket as the tablecloth. The yellow and brown is a less traditional color combo, which makes it fun and unique.
#4: If you have the need for a “kids table” why WOULDN’T you make it one they can doodle on? Love it.
#5: I do love any excuse to dress things up, which is probably why this one is my personal favorite. I like the importance of the event that comes across when you break out the nice china, light some candles, and include a few extra touches to set this apart from any other dinner. The black and white is classic elegant, and would work in just about any room’s decor.
Hope you have fun planning your own family’s Thanksgiving table!
