Five Favorite Thanksgiving Tablescapes

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Five Favorite Thanksgiving TablescapesWow! Have you realized that Thanksgiving is only a few weeks away? It's time for me to get my mojo on and start planning! Sooo... I decided to take a look at five of my favorite tablescapes for a little turkey day inspiration! And I had a realization...they all have three things in common! Check them out and see if you can spot them!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Farmhouse Thanksgiving TablescapeOne of my all-time favorites is my FARMHOUSE THANKSGIVING TABLESCAPE. I used grapevine wreaths as chargers to add some texture and chunky pewter flatware and goblets to add a rustic feel.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Thanksgiving Tablescape with White Pumpkins, Bittersweet and Mercury GlassAnother favorite is this one with WHITE PUMPKINS, BITTERSWEET AND MERCURY GLASSS taking center stage...

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Thanksgiving Tablescape with White Pumpkins, Bittersweet and Mercury Glass...a collection of fresh and faux pumpkins and gourds twined with bittersweet and topped off with votives and mercury glass candlesticks! The center pumpkin was raised on an overturned cup topped by a saucer to add height and interest.  Hint...I spray-painted $5.00 faux pumpkins from Walmart a natural-looking cream color for an inexpensive but elegant look!  


CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Pottery Barn Inspired TablescapeAnd I really love the centerpiece...this POTTERY BARN INSPIRED MONOGRAMMED SERVING BOARD. It's not only pretty and practical for serving hot dishes but easy to make as well!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Pumpkins and PewterI also love this PUMPKINS AND PEWTER RUSTIC THANKSGIVING TABLESCAPE. The twiggy placemats and deer sheds add lots of texture and an outdoorsy feel and the pewter flatware and goblets give it a rustic air.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Thanksgiving Tablescape in Creams with Natural ElementsAnd finally, this is one of my first efforts and maybe my very THANKSGIVING TABLESCAPE IN CREAMS WITH NATURAL ELEMENTS. I love the simple elegance and the way the candlelight reflects in my mother's vintage flatware! And the INDIAN CORN CANDLES add to the real Thanksgiving feel!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT DIY Ruffled Burlap Table RunnerNow...did you spot the three things they all had in common? In looking back I realized that they all had several of the same elements!
1. NEUTRAL CREAM PLATES  In fact, the very same of my favorite thrifting finds Chris Madden Felice...found at Goodwill for only $10! However, of course, any creamy or white plates would work.
2. AN INTERESTING AND UNIQUE CENTERPIECE Seasonal naturals added to interesting pieces such as my tool box or serving board make great conversation pieces as well!
3. A GREAT TABLE RUNNER My burlap table runner is at the heart of every one of these tablescapes, adding texture and helping to pull everything together. If you would like to make one of your own, you will find a detailed tutorial HERE. I leave mine out all through fall and winter and have discovered that it really adds to my Christmas tablescapes as well!

There you have favorite Thanksgiving tablescapes! This year's is still in the works so stay tuned to see what I have planned!

  1. All so pretty. I spotted the identical plates and runner but the centerpieces are all so different and creative I hadn't put them on the list of three! I've got to remember the plant pot and saucer riser!

  2. Debbie, you have always done beautiful tablescapes!
    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your staff.


Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to comment! I appreciate my wonderful readers!... Debbie
