With Thanksgiving Day quickly approaching, it’s time to set the table! This year we are having two other families join us to celebrate so there will be 10 people total. My dining table only seats 6 comfortably so I decide to use my kitchen table as well. I put together two Thanksgiving table setting ideas to share.
I enjoy setting a table but also like to keep it simple and use items that I already have mixed in with a few new items. This year I made a new fall centerpiece. For a tutorial on how to assemble this centerpiece click here. I simply layered salad plates on top of dinner plates and tied the silverware with some new ribbon.
I layered the linen napkins with fringe edges that I made under the salad plate to add some interest. The table looked a little plain so I pulled out some placemats that I already had. The golden color coordinates well with all the other fall colors.
Candles are a must have for all my table settings.
I’ll add water glasses and a pitcher of water when it’s time to eat.
My second table is the “kid’s” table. However, since the kids are grown now I’m calling it the millennial’s table. For this table I used plates and items that I already had in the cupboards.
The only new items are the cloth napkins with mitered corner napkins that I made last month. For instructions on how to make these napkins click here.
I bought this candle at Home Goods a few months ago. It’s a fabulous size candle and looks so pretty when lit.
The table looked a little sparse so I used some fall leaves that I already had to decorate the table. I think that added just enough to fill in the empty spaces.
The tables are set and next I’ll prepare the feast. Happy Thanksgiving!
