Today I am sharing an easy Thanksgiving tablescape just in time for the holiday.
Thanksgiving is two weeks away and it is my favorite holiday. I love the that it is not about the gifts or shopping. It is truly a time to gather with friends and family and reflect on all that we are thankful for. And the food is really great too!
I don’t know about you, but it is rare that we gather around the table with everyone in the family and share recipes that are made just for this one day. If you are hosting this year I have an easy Thanksgiving tablescape for you.

When working on any tablescape you need to work in layers. We will call the first layer, the base. This can be a table runner or a piece of fabric. I used this white cheese cloth. I loved the light neutral element that it adds to my table and that it was long enough to puddle off both ends of the table.
Step two is to add some greenery. I like to use garland for a tablescape, because it comes in long length and will visual fill up your space. You can also use stems and easily layer them to create a garland look. My favorite garland this season has been this beautiful fig leaf garland. It has been out of stock for a while but that have the stems on amazon. Here is the link.
For the third step I added real pumpkins. Pumpkins are the perfect festive decor item for the Thanksgiving season. I went with white and a very pale orange but you could use any variety of pumpkins and gourds. As an alternative you could also layer in other fruit such as pears or apples.
This is my favorite step and a must for any tablescape not just Thanksgiving. Candles! I love layering in candles. For this tablescape I used pillar candles in a variety of heights and sizes.
One tip is to light your candles before hand and let them burn for a while so that the wax begins to drip. This creates a cozier setting than brand new candles. As an alternative you can also use candle sticks, votive candles or these really cool battery operated flame less candle sets.
The last step is the table setting. I went with a simple table setting. Layering is the most important part. I started with a white scalloped dinner plate and place a neutral napkin on top. Next I added this cute pumpkin plate and burnt orange gourd, both are from the Target dollar spot. The Target dollar spot is the perfect place to find seasonal items for a tablescape.
I finished off the look with a real leaf and this cute ” Eat, Drink & Be Cozy” wood cut out to complete the look.
