The holiday bring much cheer, festivity and great food. But they can also be a tremendous responsibility for the the host. The decorating, cooking, cleaning, managing, grocery shopping, etc…its all very involved and requires patients, planning, but most importantly creativity. We found these beautiful and elegant Tablescapes that we just had to share.
THE RUSTIC TOUCH
For rustic tables capes, less is more. Start by choosing your greenery – big flat leaves tend to offer the most impact for the money. Then select two accent colors – for thanksgiving warm tones like raspberry, mandarin, and marigold look really elegant and add a poppy punch! We love the idea of using craft paper as placemats with hand lettering!
Check out this beautiful DIY Thanksgiving Tablescape Tutorial. The cream pumpkins and marigold berries are classic, charming, elegant and easy to recreate.
classics like linen napkins, hemstitch placemats, festive dinnerware, and gold flatware (click pictures below for direct links)
Although chinoiserie may seem out of place during thanksgiving, it can make for a beautiful & modern tablescape when paired with contemporary patterns like watercolor, marbling or indigo ceramics…just don’t use too much porcelain floral or it can look very “granny”.
For this look we recommend choosing simple blues that can be accented easily. Accenting with a bright vivid raspberry looks beautiful!

To avoid looking to outdated pair this look with youthful prints like watercolor florals, or marbling. Choose only one accent color to maintain composure.
The best part of this style is that it pretty much goes with anything and is very easy to recreate. DIY’s: gold leafing pumpkin tutorial here, drip tutorial here, leaf tutorial here, confetti tutorial here, and hand lettering tutorial here.
We saved our favorite for last. We just love how organic & natural this trend is while still being incredibly elegant. Talk about gorgeous 😍. Plus mini pumpkins can be used to create personalized favors that double as name cards at the table.
Much like other rustic tabletop trends, this one relies heavily on lush greenery – in this case moss. We love the idea of incorporating berry stems for added color. Check out this tutorial to recreate this look.
