10 inspiring table decor ideas perfect for Thanksgiving and other special occasions

Is there a better time than fall to give your dinner table a new look? We think not! With natural decorations such as pumpkins, fallen leaves and other harvested goodies in abundance you can create a masterpiece in no time. We’ve selected a few stylish looks to help you get going. With Thanksgiving just around the corner, use this for inspiration and transform your dinner table into a fall showstopper.

Cool tablecloth, warm dishes

Cool tones compliment autumnal dishes extremely well. Thanksgiving is all about family favourites such as pumpkin pie, sweet potato casserole - the list goes on and on. We guarantee that the warm autumnal tones of your dishes will look extra inviting when displayed on a cool linen tablecloth.

A meal your guests will remember

Carefully selected linen napkins and linen sachets will add an element of style to your dinner table. As an idea, print out of the night's menu and place it on top of each dinner plate. This will make your guests feel like they’ve just walked into a restaurant and add an element of surprise.

Bronze accessories

Adding a touch of bronze accessories such as candlestick and napkin holders will instantly transform your dinner table and make it feel more elegant. Opt for a neutral linen tablecloth to maintain balance.

Dine outside

If you're lucky enough to live somewhere warm enough to dine outside during fall, then opt for neutral colors when decorating your table. This will add balance and ensure nature has the limelight.

Natural beauty

Fall is full of gifts, it is the pumpkin season after all. Why not use a few pumpkins to decorate your table, it would look great as a centrepiece and add a splash of vibrancy to your tablescape.

Green touches

You can pull together a few potted plants or even better a few branches of eucalyptus. Greenery will not only add a modern twist but will also make your dinner table feel fresh and light, perfect before a heavy thanksgiving meal!

Handcrafted details

Handmade ceramics work really well on a natural linen tablecloth. With natural tones of linen and the imperfect shape of your ceramics, you will create a rustic dinner setting perfect for a casual Thanksgiving meal with your friends.

Vintage China

Sometimes the best table wear comes from family hand-me-downs and when better to put it on display than during your Thanksgiving meal? Let your vintage china do the talking by using a table runner instead of a tablecloth. This look will work beautifully on a rustic wooden table.

Warm and woody

If your dining chairs are made from natural wood then creating a cozy table setting should be easy. Just add candlesticks, natural colored tablecloth and a few golden napkin rings to create a sophisicate yet cozy thanksgiving dinner setting.
