How to Create a Rustic Yet Elegant Thanksgiving Tablescape
Hello friends! I’m so happy you stopped by!
Can you believe that Thanksgiving is just a week away? Yeah, me neither! I’m a little embarrassed to admit that I”m behind the eight ball in having my menu planned out, but I know I’ll manage to pull it all together.
Today on the blog, I’ll be sharing with you my tried and true steps on how to create a Rustic yet Elegant Thanksgiving Tablescape. I’m also teaming up with some of my super talented blogging friends who will be sharing their Thanksgiving decor and entertaining tips too, so grab a cup of coffee (or wine…no judging here!) and be prepared to be inspired!
Follow these 5 steps to create a gorgeous Thanksgiving Table. Guaranteed to impress your guests!
Determine your theme and color palette ahead of time.
Determine your foundation pieces: (a) Will you be using a tablecloth, placemats, chargers, or a combination of these?; (b) Fine China or casual dinnerware?; (c) Glassware – beverage goblet, wine goblet, champage flute, or all the above?; (d) Napkins with decorative napkin rings or without?
And of course, no table is complete without a beautiful centerpiece. It can be as simple or as elaborate as you wish, but scale, depth, and height matter here too! Vary the heights and sizes of items to add interests, but pay careful attention to height. The goal is create something visually appealing that doesn’t obstruct your guests view, thus making conversation easy.
Purchase needed items well ahead of the big day, and do a trial run.
Set the table a few days ahead of the festivities. One thing to check off of that to-do-list!
