Thanksgiving Table Ideas

Inspiration for Thanksgiving Tables

How is it possible that Thanksgiving is only one week away?? I feel like August was just two weeks ago! My favorite thing about Thanksgiving is the setting of the table, because I’m not much of a cook. I love to bake, but I’m definitely not a fan of the meal prep. I’ve rounded up some beautiful dining rooms and table setting ideas to inspire your Thanksgiving table!

I definitely prefer the simpler, less is more table settings, and design in general. This one is just perfection!

Another rustic table setting that I love, shown below, uses a burlap table cloth, a white pumpkin centerpiece and a simple piece of twine for a napkin holder.

Don’t forget the pretty table linens. I shared a post awhile back on tablecloths. I found a great wrinkle free option and it includes how to choose the right sized tablecloth.
