We are back again with some Thanksgiving Table Décor Ideas & Inspiration! Sitting around a table full of yummy, comforting food is a great way to spend Family time. So why not take it up a notch, and decorate your table with beautiful Autumn colors and textures.
Chelsi, our Visual Merchandiser and Interior Designer, shows you how to can get a designer curated look using only items found at HomeSense! Missed last week’s blog? Click here to find out how to switch up your décor for the season with any budget!
Step 1: Start with a Centerpiece
When planning out any space, it’s always best to start with a centerpiece, or main “feature” of the room. When looking for inspiration for this Fall themed tablescape, Chelsi came across this charming floral arrangement. With the natural tones and elements of Fall, it inspired the rest of the set up.
TIP: This centerpiece is actually meant to hang on a door or wall! By laying it down on a table instead (or fireplace mantle!) you have a beautiful focal piece.
Step 2: Pick your Place Settings
Using the centerpiece as inspiration for the rest of the décor, Chelsi set out to look for natural materials & Autumn harvest colors to pull the whole look together.
Starting with the placements, she wanted something with a natural texture, like a jute or burlap, to tie in with the burlap ribbon on the centerpiece. These placements were the perfect choice to bring in the harvest colors.
Next, you want to keep the plates more on the muted side. Chelsi found these great plates with a slight speckle to them on a creamy white background.
Lastly, to add some color the rustic orange napkins really pulled the whole look together.
Step 3: Add in Décor Items
The last step to decorating your table for Thanksgiving Dinner is to add in some cute décor items.
On the table itself there are 2 ways you can finish off the centerpiece. Either by adding height, with some tall candles or similar to the middle, or as shown, Chelsi found these cute little pumpkin lights that add an extra bit of ambiance (and are child friendly!) She also found little pinecones to add an extra element to the place settings themselves.
If you have a sideboard or buffet in the room, you can add in decor pieces here as well, or even Fall colored serving ware to hold pre dinner snacks and treats. Add in some Autumn florals and Fall smelling candles, and your designer curated Fall tablescape is ready to go.
