Building the perfect Thanksgiving tablescape

44237567 - autumn rustic table setting with berries, leaves, acorns and nuts

It’s hard to believe, but Thanksgiving is already upon us. As you prepare your guest room for family and diligently plan your grocery list, don’t forget to arrange a tablescape to complement your beautiful Thanksgiving feast.

Overwhelmed at the thought of simply pulling out placemats? Don’t worry! This is my five-step, foolproof guide to crafting a unique tablescape that’s true to you and your family.


The first thing to do is determine the style of your tablescape. Will it reflect the general style of your home, or will it be something completely different? For a traditional look, incorporate family heirlooms like fine china and silver. Go rustic with a cozy, worn-in look that’s reminiscent of the countryside. If you prefer a contemporary style, choose black and white table accessories with a minimal aesthetic. Fashion a glam table with metallic details and a bold color palette.


Next, consider your color palette. It’s easy to get carried away when planning your tablescape, so choosing a color palette will ensure your arrangement looks consistent and well-planned. The options for a tablescape palette are endless. Jewel tones are a classic fall choice for a Thanksgiving tablescape. Not only are the colors rich and flattering in a number of dining rooms, but these colors are the perfect complement to Thanksgiving foods like sweet potatoes and green beans. Other stylish choices include the warm colors of the autumn landscape, or rich shades of red.


After you have a style and color scheme locked down, consider the placement of your tablescape. Lay down the essentials — plates, glasses, etc. — and then get creative with the placement of your decorative accessories. If you have a circular or square table, you’ll make a symmetrical arrangement of additional decor in the middle of the table. For a rectangular or oval-shaped dining table, any decorative arrangement should be long and relatively thin in order to proportionally fit the table. As you lay out your tablescape, ask yourself if you’ll be putting food directly on the table. If so, don’t go overboard with decorations! You want the table to look full, but not cluttered!


Make your tablescape interesting by adding in a little dimension. If you’re stacking a charger with a dinner plate and maybe an appetizer plate on top, create dimension by mixing colors, textures and patterns. Try layering pattern on pattern, but make sure that the patterns have a similar scale and some shared colors. The most essential way to create dimension in your tablescape is with height. A well-planned tablescape incorporates different heights using tall florals and candlesticks for visual versatility.


Tablescapes are a freeform art that can be as complex or as simple as you like. If you’re a tablescape expert, go the extra mile this year with unique additions to your traditional table setting. Label each setting with a personalized place card to direct everyone to their seats. Lastly, add a little fun to your Thanksgiving feast by outfitting each place setting with a party popper — it’s the perfect post-dinner treat for adults and kids alike. You just might make a new tradition out of it!

The Perfect Spots To Incorporate Pumpkins Into Your Home

44907620 - pumpkins and leaves

Treat your home to some fall flair this October with the perfect array of pumpkins! These decorative gourds are an inspired addition to any room, not just the front porch. The possibilities are endless, but these are my personal favorite ways to display pumpkins in my home this autumn.

On the porch

The traditional way to incorporate pumpkins into your home is with a beautiful porch display. Whether you go for classic orange pumpkins or prefer the trendy white or striped varieties, pumpkins are an easy way to decorate because they fit everyone’s style and budget.

Carving a few pumpkins is certainly an October tradition, but leave a few untouched so they’ll last you until Thanksgiving. Instead of carving, you could also try painting the pumpkins with autumn motifs. It’s a kid-friendly craft that will also lengthen the lifespan of your pumpkins.

In the kitchen

Nothing says autumn like the scent of pumpkin spice wafting from the kitchen. If you carve your pumpkins, save the seeds, wash them off, sprinkle them with salt and stick them in the oven for a salty snack. For delicious baked goods, try pumpkin bread, or treat your family to pumpkin waffles. When cooking up your pumpkin favorites, don’t forget to add in cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. These three spices will immediately remind you of autumns past and make you long for fuzzy socks and a crackling fire!


Whether you’re entertaining or not this season, an autumn centerpiece with pumpkins is a rustic addition to any central surface. Creating a pumpkin centerpiece for your table is largely a freeform art and works best with easy-to-maneuver mini pumpkins. Start the centerpiece with some thick greenery, then add in the pumpkins and other seasonal blooms until the arrangement seems complete and complements the room it’s situated in.

Serving dish

Hosting a Halloween party? Try using a pumpkin as a serving platter. To do this, cut open a pumpkin just as you would if you were carving it, and scoop out the insides. Once the pumpkin is cleared, fit a plastic serving bowl into the pumpkin — you might have to adjust top cutout of the pumpkin accordingly. This little entertainment trick will keep your food from tasting like pumpkin and create a festive serving dish!

Accent colors

Show your seasonal spirit by incorporating pumpkin accent colors throughout your home, from the living room to the bedroom. Traditional colors inspired by the pumpkin patch, like burnt orange, golden yellow and hunter green, will automatically bring a sense of warmth to your space and will last you all the way until the holiday season. In order to make these colors easy to swap out, use them sparingly. Try accent pillows on the couch in the den, a throw blanket at the foot of the bed, or a tablecloth on the dining room table.

How do you bring the beauty of the autumn landscape into your home?
