Thanksgiving Decor Ideas

Unfortunately, Covid-19 infections and hospitalizations rates are rising at an alarming rate, so a holiday that’s known for large group gatherings is bound to look different this year. This year your guest list is probably downsized, and it might even only consist of your immediate family. Change is a constant theme of this year but that doesn’t mean you have to give up on your decor.


Thanksgiving is known for its large hearty meal with all your favorite fixing displayed across your dining room table. Family gatherings are the best excuse to change your space. Are you thinking of creating a festive atmosphere?  One of the best ways to show off your design skills for Turkey day is with a beautiful tablescape. A tablescape works for tables of all sizes. A well-decorated table brings out the fun of the holiday. When it comes to creating a tablescape, it shouldn’t be harder than cooking the big meal!  What are you going for? Are you trying a practical approach or an extremely festive look?


Keep It Simple 

There’s definitely something to be said for keeping it simple. Use elements and textures for a  simple look. It might be basic, but pull out typical fall favorites such as pillar candles, an array of fresh fruit with appealing colors,  and fall leaves around the table.


Don’t Forget The Kiddie Table 

Keep the kiddos occupied during the cooking process by having them create their own decor. Making Thanksgiving just as memorable for the children is important. Playful tablescapes are engaging and fun for kids of all ages.  Do you have a little artist in the family?  Use a paper runner; You won’t have to worry about spills with paper tablecloths. The best part is that your kids can even draw on it!  Throw on some mini pumpkins and your table is complete!


Make It Bright 

Color takes center stage on your Thanksgiving table alongside the big bird. Choose bright colored linens and cute mason jars that will complement an array of orange pumpkins and berries to spread across the table to create a real pop.
