Thanksgiving Inspiration

I love creating a beautiful table for my guests. Whether I am using my china or my basic white dishes, creating a tablescape is fun and makes your guests feel special! Even though I am not hosting Thanksgiving this year, I still enjoy looking through photos of tables that other people have set. Here are some pretty photos to inspire your Thanksgiving tablesetting!



Tablescape by Bunny Williams


Bunny Williams always set a beautiful table. This is her table in her conservatory at her home in Connecticut. The earthy terra-cotta pots with the green succulents, topiaries, and bulbs are a great color combo for a Thanksgiving table.

Another fabulous tablesetter and entertainer is Carolyne Roehm. I love the combination of colors on this table. The blue and white tablecloth brings freshness to the color scheme. The antler candlesticks give it a rustic touch.

I think this table was actually set for a wedding, but I love the colors and how elegant it is. It would definitely make a dramatic Thanksgiving table!

If you serve your Thanksgiving dinner buffet style, adding garden elements like this plant stand and antique urn could add interest and height.

I love this idea of placing pictures of family members in the center of your table. It can help to remind us of what we should be thankful for.

Finally, if you are crafty, I love these tablecloths and napkins that can be made from plain tablecloths and napkins. You can stencil or freehand Thanksgiving messages.
