Simple Thanksgiving Tablescape

posted in:

Happy Monday! I’m really excited going into this week because it’s one of my favorite weeks of the year! In preparation for Thursday, I started brainstorming and putting together a Thanksgiving tablescape. I know it’s much later than most bloggers share these but this one is so easy that you could still easily get it done in time.

The three “extras” you’ll need other than the silverware, dinnerware, and glassware that you already own are – twine, napkins, and a variety of candles.

I kept this very, very simple! I stared by placing the candles in the middle of the table and arranged them so that there was no pattern to it. I wanted it to feel natural… Like I didn’t spend tons of time putting this together (which I didn’t!). Candles can make a space feel cozy immediately and look great on their own. You could add some greenery or a runner in there as well and it would look great! For this one, I leaned towards the simplicity side of things.

I found these candles at Walmart and Hobby Lobby on sale. Some are off-white while others are a stark white. I love how the combination looks together. Again… Like I didn’t spend tons of time putting this together. 😉

Hearth and Hand Napkins

I love that this photo feels like a film shot to me.

I picked up two kinds of napkins from the Hearth and Hand line. I didn’t want to get two sets of the same ones because that wasn’t practical for us so I decided to get two different ones to get more use out of them and alternate them on the table. They have a Christmas feel to them but that’s okay with me. Who said Thanksgiving has to be all oranges and browns?

I also cut pieces of twine (you can find this at any craft store) and tied them around the silverware. I love how this makes the table feel casual/rustic while also feeling put together. You could also add a chalkboard name tag to each plate or a leaf lettered with each person’s name, a small stem of greenery, or even a small white pumpkin. It would also look beautiful with some greenery intertwined with the candles. The options are endless! I just wanted to give you a beautiful and simple starting (or ending!) point.

I love these napkins the most and how they tie into our ticking stripe seat cushions.


We’re sad that we won’t be at home to soak up this time with family but we’re really thankful for our friends here and we’re looking forward to a day (and night) filled with fellowship, food, football, and fun!
