Hosting Thanksgiving for the first time this year and want to wow your guests? Or maybe your house has been the go-to spot for years, but you're table is ready for a makeover. Here are some fresh ideas for Thanksgiving tablescapes that by no means say "grandma!"
Blend traditional Thanksgiving colors and accents with silver or grey to bring a sophisticated, contemporary feel to the table. Why not add a modern touch by serving up your Thanksgiving feast on square dinnerware.
Create a table your guests won't forget by using bold, big graphics. Whether incorporating these prints into your table linens or simply using uniquely designed place mats to create the bold effect, your guests will be pleasantly wowed.
If you're looking to make a fresh but dramatic statement on your table, mix an eclectic assortment of traditional Thanksgiving accessories, e.g., gourds and pumpkins, with modern table linens in cooler tones such as grey, white, silver or black.
Want to make a significant departure from the ultra-traditional Thanksgiving table? Try using a monochromatic look across your linens and dinnerware while incorporating a chic-take on traditional Thanksgiving table accessories and centerpieces.
Blend rich, dark brown tones with metallics if you're looking to upgrade a traditional look but want to bring warmth and style to your table.
Hint: Whatever look and style you bring to your Thanksgiving feast, scatter candles and votives throughout the table to create that warmth and coziness that your guests will love.
Happy Thanksgiving! And don't forget to tell us how you decorated your table - we'd love to hear!
