Thanksgiving is nearly a week away! I’m so excited! One of the most fun parts, I think, of Thanksgiving is getting the table set up and adorned with beautiful pumpkins, greenery, candles and all of the fun platters and plates you’ve kept stowed away for special occasions. Well, if you are like me and love to deck out your table in crazy splendor, then we’ve got you covered. We’ve compiled some great inspiration from other fantastic bloggers across the web who really know how to do Thanksgiving up right! Check it out!
Natural & Organic
Left / Eucalyptus, sage, olive wood, citrus still on the branches, a thick jute styled table runner and so much more. So simple and stunning, especially when paired together in Jen’s beautiful dinning room.
Right | Country Living took kraft paper to the next level, creating personalize placemats for each guest. Simple vases of mixed greenery zigzag between tall tapper candles and votives. How lovely, right?
Left / Erin Hiemstra of Apt. 34 has truly mastered the look of organic simplicity here with soft blue-grey tones throughout the room, gold silverware and soft white linen. A light and airy arrangement adorns the center of the table.
Right / There’s so much to be said about this look! I love the simplicity and airy feel the room has. A mixture of vintage chairs, pheasant feathers in massive display and soft, off-white table settings. This room really pops.
Left / A simple and neutral palatte creates a relaxing environment for your guests. A garland of greenery adorns a farmhouse-style table and two modern candelabras add a beautiful glow as the sun sets. A table done right by the team at The Glitter Guide.

Dark & Dramatic
Left / Deep grey tones and mixed with warm wood is all this tablescape needs to feel dramatic and moody, styled by Lotta Agaton
Right / I’ve fallen madly in love with this table styled by Our Food Stories. Deep rich tones, rustic stoneware, an array of fruits and berries and a massive, worn farmhouse table is the epitome of dark & dramatic thanksgiving style!
Left / Jewel-tones steal the show in the warm and inviting tablescape created by Apartment 34. A mix and match style has a very laid-back feel. I envision this stunning style nestled between the vineyards on a sunny California afternoon, which is making me homesick for my beloved state!
Right / Just because it’s Thanksgiving doesn’t mean you have to stick with the traditional look. Here a palatte of teals, blues, greens and white are artfully interwoven in an beautifully adorned tablescape, overflowing with a bountiful harvest.
Left / Gold, black, white and green get mixed together for an all around stunning and chic tablescape masterfully designed by Sarah Sherman Samuel of Stories. I love the touch of wood vaneer, cut and used as a place card.

Left / Soft pink, jet black and gold are a very glamorous and chic combo for Thanksgiving. The deep black silverware are beyond stunning! By Nouba
Right / Lately I’ve been obsessing over everything copper, so the moment I saw Lindsey Brunk’s stunning tablescape, my heart was happy. Her little detail of handwritten placecards is fantastic.
Left / Lauren Conrad took basic items, such as pumpkins, gourds and greenery (which can be found at most grocery stores) and created a sophisticated and fun tablescape. Smaller pumpkins were hollowed out to make serving bowls.
Right / Kristen from Ella Claire nailed it with this breathtaking tablescape. Heirloom pumpkins, eucalyptus, candle holders made from birch branches, old books used for placemats and individual homemade breads at each placesetting. Crushing hard over this one!
Left / Tall candle sticks are the main centerpiece for this table, styled by Liz Marie, and soft, velvety pumpkins adorn each place setting to create a unique, elegant room. Can we also talk about those chandeliers? LOVE!
