Farmhouse Thanksgiving Tablescape

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Farmhouse Thanksgiving TablescapeIt’s only a couple of weeks until my favorite holiday will be here! Yes, Thanksgiving is right around the corner and I have my table all ready to show you! It stars all of my favorite elements…galvanized metals alongside pewter with lots of texture and rustic natural elements!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Farmhouse Fall Mantel I am continuing the theme that I started with my farmhouse fall mantel that is filled with more of the same elements. You can get a better look at it here.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Farmhouse Thanksgiving Tablescape And here it is! I love the simplicity…not too much fuss and lots of texture! At the heart of it all is my rustic galvanized tool box, a favorite $20 find from an antique festival last year.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Farmhouse Christmas TablescapeIf it looks familiar, that’s because it was the star of my farmhouse Christmas tablescape last year, filled with chunky candles wrapped in vintage upholstery webbing, frosted magnolia leaves and berries. You can see more of it here.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Farmhouse Thanksgiving TablescapeHere’s a closer look at the toolbox. I his time I have filled it with a fall leaf garland topped with faux bittersweet, pumpkins and pine cones. Simple cream taper candles add warmth.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Farmhouse Thanksgiving Tablescape I have to say that I love this guy! He has such a wonderful patina and lots of character from years of use!

There’s still plenty of time if you would like to make your own! You will find a detailed tutorial for my ruffled burlap table runner here.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Farmhouse Thanksgiving TablescapeAnd here’s a final look at my farmhouse Thanksgiving tablescape…just the perfect amount of texture and rustic elements with no fuss for my small family gathering! The “big people” will be sitting at this table…

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT  No-Sew Thanksgiving Placemat and Napkin Ring …and the “little people” will have their own table next to us and their own special tablescape with the no-sew turkey placemats and pilgrim hat napkin rings that I have made! You will find the instructions for making them here.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Thanksgiving Inspiration And here’s even more Thanksgiving inspiration for you…with a look at my Thanksgiving tablescapes over the past few years!

Baby Kitty says this is his favorite time of year, too, when he is very much in vogue…with orange layered on white! And…the turkey giblets are not bad, either!

  1. Debbie, this is so beautiful. I love your gorgeous centerpiece and the place setting for the children's table is such a great idea. So fun.

  2. Just beautiful Debbie, can I come to your house? I won't eat...I'll just admire you decor and drool, so give me a napkin. Where did you get that awesome tool box?

  3. I can't tell you how much I LOVE this tablescape!! Every element. Your centerpiece is breathtaking, and now I'm going to be hunting for a galvanized toolbox (I'm still hunting for a long, skinny wooden one!) I'll be using your idea of the fall leaf placecards (thank you very much!). It is all so very warm, welcoming and just sings, "Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Dinner!" Bravo, Debbie!

  4. Debbie, fantastic table. Love the centerpiece and the dishes are so pretty


  5. What a beautiful feeling you've created!

  6. Debbie, this is such a beautiful table! I love the farmhouse look and the centerpiece is really perfect. It's great how you show using the same item several different ways each year. The grapevine wreaths make amazing chargers. It will be a small Thanksgiving this year with only three of us, but Christmas will see the whole family gather! Baby Kitty is always in style!

  7. BEAUTIFUL table!!! Love the tool box and those dishes!!! I used wreaths for my chargers too!!! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!

  8. Beautiful table. I love the beautiful white china contrasted to the rustic look of the galvanized metal container and the burlap runner.

  13. Debbie, I love your farmhouse decor. Everything is perfect. I can hardly wait to have the Thanksgiving dinner. I am joining friends, but will make my own little dinner so I have left overs - that's the best.Yum yum.
    Your children's table is so cute and they will love that.
    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and I ca smell the turkey and dressing already.

  14. This is a lovely tablescape. I love your centerpiece.

  15. Oooooohhhh! Thank you for the idea. We have an old tool box salvaged from someone's trash. This is wonderful inspiration for its use!
