Inspiring Thanksgiving Tablescapes to Wow Your Nearest and Dearest

Just because your Thanksgiving dinner will have fewer chairs around the table this year, doesn’t mean you can’t still blow your loved ones away with a stunning fall tablescape. A gorgeously themed table fills any room with bright, festive spirit and shows your dinner guests how much you appreciate them – something that’s easy to forget after spending so much time together through the pandemic! Give them something to feast their eyes on as they dive into dinner and share what they are thankful for.

Get inspired by these 3 beautiful tablescapes perfect for Thanksgiving or any fall dinner, special occasion or not!

Neutral Low-Key Thanksgiving Tablescape by Bless’er House

If neutrals are the key to your heart, then this Thanksgiving tablescape from Bless'er House1 is right up your alley. What we love about this tablescape is that a lot of the elements can be reused for other holidays, since neutrals are always in style. The white pumpkins, foliage, and elevated candles make this table an understated setting for your relaxed autumn feast.

Rustic Thanksgiving Tablescape by House of Harper

We love the idea of using kraft paper as the runner with a personalized message in beautiful calligraphy, just like House of Harper2 did. The mini white pumpkins for place cards with names written in gold continue the calligraphy theme, and why not take it further? Add markers to the place settings and invite your table mates to leave their own Thanksgiving messages or drawings – not only will it keep little ones busy, but you may even end up with a frameable keepsake.

Pink & Orange Fall Tablescape by A Beautiful Mess

For a less traditional approach to fall bounty, veteran DIY-er Elsie from A Beautiful Mess3 opts for an offbeat colour scheme of blush pink, orange and amber for her fall dinner party. The gourds and pumpkins compliment the antique amber glassware to add some autumnal flair to the table, while the abundance of bright, cheerful flowers energize a meal that can put even the best of us to sleep.

Even if you’d rather stay in this fall than scour the shops for tablescape treasures, remember that the outdoors we’ve all been rediscovering can yield a cornucopia of seasonal finds! With only a few sprigs of foliage, some gourds of any colour, cloth napkins and a table runner, you’ll elevate your dinner table to a delectable Thanksgiving feast for the eyes.
