THANKSGIVING DECOR: DECORATIVE ACCENTS
This year, even though I decided to go out of my comfort zone with a dark-colored tablescape, I still kept it simple with light-colored pieces. I didn’t want everything to be dark purple for decorative accents, so I included several neutral-colored trinkets to add a sense of peace to the room. From mini pumpkins and dried leaves to vases and candles, here are my styling pieces!
I wanted the main centerpiece to pop with color, so that’s why I chose uncomplicated decorations to place around the table. My all-time favorite pieces are my mini candle votives! I think they add such a lovely touch to the setting while also looking minimal.
THANKSGIVING DECOR: TABLE RUNNERS/TABLECLOTHS
I usually wouldn’t bother draping a table runner, but unfortunately, my dining room table is dark brown, affecting my table setting the vision. So I end up styling the table with a neutral colored or a white table runner and colored napkins to invite more color to the scene. In this case, I included two linen table runners, a white runner that covers the whole table, and a mini light brown table runner placed right down the middle, along with purple linen napkins to match my darker tone for the overall tablescape.
Decorating with a table runner brings the whole tablescape together, creating an organized and clean look to admire. As I said, a table runner isn’t the first piece of decor to come to mind, but when it does, I tend to have my favorites when it comes to creating Thanksgiving table setting ideas!
THANKSGIVING DECOR: CROCKERY COLLECTION
I tend to always keep it simple with my plates, bowls, glassware, etc. There’s just something elegant about placing cream-colored plates with gold trimming around the rim on a table. Plain and simple, just the way I like it. Whether it’s any part of a crockery collection, I tend to go either white or cream-colored with little to no pattern nor design. I leave it to the decorative accents and floral arrangement to spice up the scape.
Since this table is for Thanksgiving, I needed to incorporate some pumpkins other than actual mini pumpkins. Therefore, I included my new favorite pumpkin mugs! Not only are these mugs adorable decor pieces, but they are easy to handle and perfect to enjoy your favorite Holiday drinks in.

THANKSGIVING DECOR: CENTERPIECE
Finally, it’s time to put together the centerpiece, aka the floral arrangement. Creating bouquets creates a sense of comfort within myself. Whether it’s a mini handheld bunch of flowers or an organized vase full of beautiful blooms, I have always loved styling them. I chose dark-colored flowers for my centerpiece for this tablescape, including purple and green Hydrangeas, purple cabbage, burgundy-colored Astrantia, grass-leaved Scabious, and Brunia berries.
I find it more of a challenge to design centerpieces that have surprising color combinations. Rich fall colors dominate my floral arrangement today, and the purple cabbage and hydrangeas signal the end of summer and celebrate autumn.
I’m confident that you can create this look this fall, and I include all my decor sources for your convenience!
Now that you have gone through one of my favorite Thanksgiving table setting ideas, how will you style your table? Don’t worry, there’s still so much time to think of an idea, and besides, it’s still October! Time to put on a costume, eat candy, and watch scary movies!
Alright, let’s settle this. Have some of you purchased your bags of candy too early to the point where it’s tempting to eat them, or are some of you waiting until the last minute to buy your candy to bypass the treat cravings? Which person are you? In all seriousness, my family relates to person #1, and I had to tie up all of the candy bags and lock them up, aha!
Just between you and me, I am way past Halloween, Thanksgiving, and all of the sweet treat cravings that come with the Holidays. I am now moving on to decorating the Waite house for Christmas! So stay tuned for upcoming decor, recipes, crafts, and much more!
