I am thrilled everyone is coming for Thanksgiving this year.

It’s been a while since we’ve been able to enjoy fall gatherings and I’m just really looking forward to this month’s supper club theme.

I’m not quite sure how I’m setting my Thanksgiving table yet this year, but I’ve been playing around with a few centerpiece and table decor ideas to get the creative juices flowing.

HERE are the basics I follow when setting a table for Thanksgiving.

Thanskgiving Centerpiece Ideas

For me, the centerpiece design is the first thing I do.

And I’ve been working on a few concepts you might enjoy.

For starters, I shared THIS simple pumpkin and flowers centerpiece a few weeks ago.


And I shared a really important tip in that post about using fresh pumpkins as a vessel, so if you decide to make something similar, be sure to check it out.

Most recently, I shared how to style a Thanksgiving centerpiece 3 ways in my latest YouTube video.

Watch it HERE.

And if you want to create a GORGEOUS live centerpiece?

Check out this video where I cut flowers from my garden.

Even if you don’t have a garden or the same flowers, you can apply the same concepts to create a beautiful arrangement of your own.

The Best Thanksgiving Tablescape Ideas

For our virtual supper club Thanksgiving theme, I am decorating my table with a cozy, warm autumn color palette.

The inspiration for this table is my faux centerpiece with these gorgeous cabbage rose florals, rose hips, greens, and pumpkins.

Setting a table that reflects the season includes bringing those outdoor elements to the table whether they are real or faux.

So look around your landscape to see what you can bring in from outside to include in your tablescape.

From fall flowers to ornamental grass fronds to falling leaves, there is much to bring indoors from nature.

And if you prefer a set-and-forget approach, go with faux flowers, greens and other organic elements.

Artificial flowers and plants have come such a long way.

Many of them look real and authentic.

For this Thanksgiving table, I designed a cozy, rustic vibe using a warm autumn color palette.

The best way to make a table feel cozy is to decorate with layers.

Since I love to leave my table exposed, I used THIS as a table runner beneath my centerpiece.

Doesn’t it look so cool on the table?

I love all the texture and dimension it adds.

And how fun that it’s not ACTUALLY a table runner.

For each table setting, I started with my favorite cedar branch placemats.

I bought these years ago from Pier 1.

I looked for them online to share a link with you guys but I can’t find them anywhere!

So hopefully Pier 1 will sell them in their online store again soon.

The next table setting layer is THESE gorgeous chargers.

I know I use them a lot in my table designs, but I love them!

To add some elegance, I used my Lenox.

Then topped each dish off with gorgeous napkin rings like THESE and my gorgeous green hemstitch napkin linens.

For some additional sparkle, I added stemware like THIS.

And I decided to use THESE cute little cutlery pouches to hold each place setting.

Don’t you love them?
