A Simple Thanksgiving Table

 Just like that, it's November and it's dark at 4PM and everyone is putting up Christmas trees and poor Thanksgiving is being left in the dust. To be honest, I am anxious to decorate as well. I'm not sure if it's that we're looking forward to things that make us happier or that we're just trying to get on with this year but I'm here for all the decorating and trying to make the holidays at home as memorable as possible in 2020. We may not be celebrating with large family or friend gatherings but we can still create a beautiful setting for the ones we love. 

When it comes to decorating for Thanksgiving, I like to mix in pieces that can be used year round and coordinate with my holiday decor. I like to use different textures and materials and go with more of a neutral color scheme that also coordinates with my holiday decor. There's no need to spend a lot of money. Gather some branches from your yard and fill a large vase like this beautiful black one and use it as the centerpiece of your table for some drama. Add different height candle sticks down the table that can be used on your mantle afterwards for Christmas. Those little white sugar pumpkins you bought for Halloween also work great for little accents on the table. Get the kids involved and collect things on a walk, big leaves that you can use as place cards with each persons name written on them is another cute idea. 

Here are some ideas to create a simple yet beautiful table setting for your loved ones at Thanksgiving. Home items are flying off the shelves before they even hit the shelves, so you may want to get a head start even though Thanksgiving is still a couple weeks away. 



Layer plates on wood chargers and keep it simple


Simple white linens can be used year round 


Don't throw those little white pumpkins away, extend their life for cute little plate toppers. You could even use a sharpie to write everyone's names and use them as place holders


My favorite way to create a simple yet beautiful table is to add different heights with candle sticks 



I snipped some rosemary from my backyard (smells so good) to create this little detail as another option with napkin rings. These are old but I've included other options for you below.
