Easy, Elegant Thanksgiving Table Decoration Ideas

If you find yourself asking, "how do I decorate my Thanksgiving tables," then look no further.

Decorating a Thanksgiving Table

Planning a Thanksgiving celebration is a noble task. Decorating the table, cooking the turkey, and inviting all of your relatives over may seem like a lot to handle, but rest assured bringing your family together will be worth it in the end.

Thanksgiving Place Settings

The place settings are a great place to start. Once you know what this looks like, you can add in other cool ideas, like centerpieces.

This place setting features Turkey Themed Plates topped with Thanksgiving dessert plates and accented with gold chargers. Each setting also featured a maroon cloth napkins and silver plastic cutlery.

Drinks were served in Stemless Wine Glasses featuring chalk labels. These could also be used to write guests names so drinks don’t get mixed up!

You can’t have an elegant Thanksgiving tablescape without place cards. We made sure all of our guests felt included by using tree place card holders to give everyone a spot at the table.

Just for fun, we used treat bags with seasonal cookies in them as a cute party favor for each place setting, too!

Autumn Centerpieces

Rather than making our table too "Turkey Themed" we gave it more of an autumn harvest feeling and added a touch of glam with accents like gold pinecones.

The Grateful Heart Table Top-It, offset against a burlap table cloth, drew attention to the center of the table and allowed for our creative centerpiece design to go around it.

To finish the centerpiece, rustic tealight holders, filled with acorns and pinecones, added a touch of class while tying the whole tablescape together.
