Ten Amazing Thanksgiving Table Decorations

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and if you are hosting the dinner, you may want to start thinking about how you are going to decorate the table.  With such an important feast, you want your table to be just as elaborate and festive.

Whether you are going for a formal setting or something more relaxed, I found several tablescape ideas that should give you plenty of inspiration for your own Thanksgiving table.

Thanksgiving Table Decorations:

1.  Monogram pumpkins by Southern Whimsy.

Pumpkins are popular to use on a Thanksgiving table.  Adding a monogram, or a full name, is a fun touch and could be used to signify a place setting.

2.  Clay saucer chargers by Decorating Your Small Space.

The highlight of this table has to be the use of clay pot saucers as the plate chargers.  This is such a creative way to warm up the table.

3.  Log slice chargers by Babble.

Another idea is to use log slices for chargers for a more rustic look.

4. Painted pumpkins by The Budget Decorator.

If you want to match your pumpkins to your plates or other decor, just paint them!  You can also use small pumpkins for taper candle holders for an elegant look.

5.  White Thanksgiving table via Briton Loves It.

6.  Lumina pumpkins, crystal ashen cucumbers and baby boo pumpkins by Martha Stewart.

Thanksgiving Crafts

Every year I host Thanksgiving dinner at my house and I absolutely love getting ready for it.  Not only is the feast  a long anticipated treat but the table-scape is so fun to put together.  Instead of buying all of the decor, I head straight to my craft room to create unique accessories and decor for the holiday.

I thought I would put together a collection of Thanksgiving crafts that are especially unique, budget friendly and decorative to make your home warm and inviting for your guests.

This pine cone place card holder was easy and inexpensive to make.  All that was required was some pine cones, florist wire and a little shimmery paint to dress them up.  I was able to whip up enough of these for the whole table in no time at all.  Not only does it let everyone know where to sit but it adds a nice decorative touch to the overall table-scape.

A Collection Of Thanksgiving Crafts:

bottle cap wine charm bottle-cap-wine-charms

A big part of our Thanksgiving meal is of course the wine!  To mark each glass in a festive way, I made these fun wine glass charms out of recycled bottle caps.  Each of the bottle caps has a different colored leaf embellishment to differentiate between the glasses.


Indian corn place card holders by Holiday Crafts And Creations.

Here is another place card holder idea that offers a little treat along with it.  It looks just like Indian corn which will add some nice color to your table.  The kids, at your table, will especially like bringing home this little favor—-if it lasts that long!

Fall leaf topiary by BHG.

This beautiful Fall topiary is much easier to put together than what it looks – especially with the easy to follow video tutorial.  Use your favorite coloration of artificial leaves to create this focal point for your table, shelf or mantel.

Thanksgiving craft paper cone wreath by Woman's Day.

A wreath primarily made from paper has a unique and festive look.  The idea with this one is to use it as a gratitude wreath with guests writing down what they are thankful for and placing their gratitude papers inside the cones of the wreath to be read at dinner.

Thanksgiving blocks by Kaboose.

These Thanksgiving blocks are simple to make and a perfect addition to a shelf or mantel to display the message.  All that is required for  the colorful display is some wooden craft blocks, paint and a paint pen.

Thanksgiving wooden blocks by Crystal & Co.

Here is another wooden block project that uses a free printable and Mod Podge to spell out the message.

gather plate

I Love this simple idea for some plate decor!  You don’t have to do a lot to make a big statement.  The word “gather” is just perfect for the Thanksgiving holiday.

DIY button napkin rings by Copy Cat Crafts.

And finally, if you are a button collector like I am, you just might have enough festive colored buttons to make these fun napkins rings.  Just string them on sturdy elastic or string and tie them off to your desired ring size.  That’s it – simple and cute!

Super Easy Fall Decor Ideas

Do you want to decorate for Fall but don’t have a lot of time to put into it?  No worries!  There are plenty of ways to achieve a new look for the season in hardly no time at all!  Usually all you need is just a couple of elements to create a festive display.

I put together a neutral Fall centerpiece in minutes with just a few small white pumpkins and a pip berry wreath.  Pumpkins always make for excellent Fall decor and the variety of colors that they come in make them easier to incorporate into every room in your house.

I think you will like the list of Fall decor ideas that I came up with for their simplicity and overall design.  Who says you have to spend hours on your decor to achieve something beautiful?

I’ll start with another pumpkin idea:

Pumpkin centerpiece by Wedding Bee.

Willow branches and pumpkins in a glass vase…….what could be easier?  Simple and yet it really makes a statement.

Candy corn candle display by Your Decorating Hotline.

Now that I can no longer eat candy corn —I overdosed on it too many times—-I would love to use it in this way!  It makes a colorful filler around a plain white candle.

Fall centerpiece idea by Shanty 2 Chic.

Keeping it neutral with browns and whites with pine cones, branches and white pumpkins!

Corn, pea and bean candle fillers by My Hearts Desire.

Another great filler idea for candles is to layer with dried peas, beans and corn.  The Fall harvest of colors work well with a warm colored candle.

Gourds and candles centerpiece by Home and Garden Cafe.

I love using gourds in Fall decor too and this is a unique idea with candles.  Just hollow out the centers of a couple and you have instant candle holders.

Simple Fall decor by Casa Cullen.

I just love the simplicity and style of a tray full of small pumpkins!
