Create a lush centrepiece down the table with tropical leaves and bright-coloured blooms and keep the individual dinner settings simple. Add a little mood lighting to your evening by hanging string lights above the table.
2. TRY: EMBRACING TEXTURE AND A NATURE-INSPIRED PALETTE
Adding rustic, natural textures like wood at various places on the table adds warmth and coziness to the decor. Opt for little wood stumps with a slit for name tags, and larger pieces of wood to stack candles. As for the colour palette, stick to greens for an unexpected look that still offers the cozy feel of fall.
3. TRY: A PLACE SETTING THAT FORESHADOWS THE MENU
Echo your Thanksgiving menu by adding a few aromatics your guests will be savouring as part of your table setting decor. Fresh herbs like rosemary offer a rustic touch while also adding an earthy fragrance to the evening.
4. TRY: STICKING TO THE CLASSIC FALL COLOUR PALETTE
Choose your decor elements around a same colour to ensure every element in your table setting comes together effortlessly. Our favourite part of this setting? The mismatch of candlesticks in plum and gold.
5. TRY: SKIPPING THE BREAD BASKET
Grab burlap and a sprig of rosemary and wrap bread rolls individually and place at each setting. For another lovely touch, once you've decided on your menu for the evening, print it out on card stock and include as part of the table decor.
6. TRY: MIXING AND MATCH TEXTILES
Add a little whimsy by mixing and matching your napkins, plates and table mats.
7. TRY: GOLD-DIPPED LEAVES SPRINKLED AROUND THE TABLE
For a little added elegance, take the time for a little DIY — dip fall leaves into gold paint and scatter them around your table as a centrepiece.
8. TRY: DECORATING WITH SUCCULENTS INSTEAD OF GOURDS
Think beyond the more traditional gourds and flowers by adding a variety of succulents as a centrepiece for your table.
