Hello Friends! If you are hosting Thanksgiving this year, I hope this post gives you some ideas and inspires you to go all out when setting your table for dinner.
Mike and I bought a bigger home because we LOVE entertaining and our little 700 sq ft cottage wasn’t cutting it.. so, we do a lot of hosting now that we are in a bigger home #ourcapecodhome.
This year, I went with a darker moody vibe for our table setting. To start, I used a black table runner and 4 plaid placemats. I made the placemats out of wallpaper. Another alternative would be to use craft paper or wrapping paper!
Next, I layered the table runner with vintage candle holders and black candlesticks, two copper lanterns and a vase with burgundy plant pieces that I gathered from the garden.
For each placemat, I added a plate, bowl, a linen napkin and the cutlery. I also added a water and wine glass.
To do the name tags, I have added two options. The first being a wood name tag cut out. I had these made for our wedding. These are a great idea to get for each family member, that way you will always have fancy place cards on hand!
The second option is use a thick paper and handwrite your family members names. Both options will work great! To finish it off, I added white and orange pumpkins.
To style the cabinet, I added additional flatware, wine glasses, a cake tray and other items that I will need on Thanksgiving Day. For the top of the cabinet, I added some baskets, a vase of dried leaves and some candlesticks! So easy to do and looks very festive!
Okay friends, I hope this post inspires you to get crafty when styling your table for Thanksgiving! If you have any questions, complete below.
