Creating a fall tablescape is both easy and fun! Whether you plan to have company for Thanksgiving, or just your own family, you can quickly create a table that makes you happy and fills you with the spirit of the season.
Creating a beautiful table doesn’t have to be hard, but it should include the following:
1. Pretty tableware: plates and silverware
The Dollar Tree has very pretty fall colored and patterned plates. You can also choose from woven chargers or several colors of plastic chargers.
If paper plates are more your speed (because, let’s face it, you’ll save tons of time) Oriental Trading has a great selection of pretty plates you can get. Best of all, there would be no dishes.
2. A pretty centerpiece
This centerpiece would be easy to make. It’s simple and can be made from materials you could get from the dollar store, or a craft store. I also really love the colors- they’re very “fall” and easy to match your table ware.
3. Table linens
A pretty table runner or colorful napkins make a very pretty statement.
4. Use candles at different heights to add interest
Candles of different heights add a lot of interest to your table and keep your eye moving. Also, the soft candle glow evokes a cozy feeling. They’re pretty and they make you feel more cozy!! Scented candles are nice, too.
5. Add natural elements
Bring something from the outside in- pine cones, berries (fake ones for safety’s sake), pumpkins, leaves, or gourds all will work for Thanksgiving. You can use real ones or pick up faux ones at the store. I love to use pinecones.
I hope you enjoyed this post! Thanksgiving is just around the corner!
