Create The ULTIMATE Holiday Tablescape

This post is for you! Let’s talk the ultimate Thanksgiving ? tablescape that will leave your guests in awe.

Calling all holiday hostesses ?

Raise your hand if you bought the house you live in because it’s perfect for entertaining, ?‍♀️ (me too)!

Here’s your to do list:

Step 1: Pick your color scheme.

Are you going with a more traditional look? Do you want to mix in bolder hues like navy and light blue with your oranges and ivories.

Step 2: Determine your signature style.

Are you going for more rustic, classic, or elegant? That’s going to help you pick your centerpiece and table accents.

Step 3: Are you going to use a tablecloth or a runner?

Choose something that goes with the style and color scheme. Neutral is always a good option to be able to layer in colorful accents.

Step 4: Choose your centerpiece.

Flower arrangements, candles, pumpkins, a mix of all 3? If you’re going with flowers, what kinds of flowers? Or maybe you’re going to use fruit in your arrangement combined with other autumnal accents and greenery.

Step 5: Add in your linen napkins.

Patterned or solid colored, with napkin holders (bold or simple); then choose your flatware and dinner plates. You can’t go wrong with white plates but using Fall colors would also look great on a Thanksgiving table.

Step 6: Incorporate an accent.

Such as, little acorns, pinecones, or olive branches to put on top of the plates. Keep it simple and tie a piece of twine around the napkin!

Step 7: Create your dinner playlist.

Have it playing softly in the background. Try “Autumn Acoustic 2020”.

Step 8: Set the lighting.

How many candles do you need? Are you adding in accent lighting? Dimming the chandelier? Figure out how you want the mood lighting to look.

And there you have it! Your tablescape to do list! Now it’s time to go shopping!
