Happy Thanksgiving! What are your plans for the holiday – are you heading to someone else’s home to gather with friends and family, or are you hosting a Thanksgiving gathering yourself? Have you been blessed with the task of hosting this year? Create a fun, fancy and festive table! It’s easy and inexpensive with these inspiring tips and Thanksgiving table setting ideas.
Tablecloth and Linens
You may feel the urge to splurge on expensive, name-brand linens so they last, but here’s a money-saving tip: don’t buy a Thanksgiving-themed set! Instead, opt for simple designs or solid colors that reflect a palette that works for many occasions that you can use all year. Burgundy, cream, gold or dark green are great choices that cover a lot of holidays. And remember – placemats or table runners are great options, too. I love my simple burlap runner and use it for a million different occasions.
The same goes here – a Thanksgiving-themed set of dishes means you can only use it once a year. Go for china, glassware and silverware that sets the table for a plethora of special occasions. The charger underneath a dinner plate, colored cloth napkins, festive napkin rings and other decor can be counted on to bring the table to its intended theme.
Little Touches of Autumn
It doesn’t seem all that important, but these little bits and bobs are a chance to make the table really Autumnal-looking. Thanksgiving accents for the table are easy to come by, too.
Check your local grocery store for things like:
- Mini Pumpkins
- Flint Corn
And if you’re looking for even more natural elements, head outside and look for:
- Pretty Fall Leaves
- Pussy Willow
- Cedar or Pine Boughs

A vivid centerpiece is just what you never knew you needed.
