When it comes to Thanksgiving, the number one thing that usually gets people stressed out the most is the pressure for cooking up a picture-perfect, golden-standard feast for friends and family.
However, setting up a wow-worthy table is one of the easiest ways to make sure you half-way win the hearts of your guests and loved ones even before the food touches the table.
And to create a beautiful Thanksgiving tablescape, there are only a few essential things you need and really, the sky is your limit. First, blanketing the table with your favorite tablecloth, this will be the canvas for your masterpiece to come. Then cosy up the table with a set of fall-scented candles to welcome everyone with a heart-warming smell followed by a fruit basket filled with autumn fruit and veggies – think pumpkin and apples – or keep it simple yet classy with a vase filled with your favourite blooms; having some autumn leaf-shade decors to give a fall accent to your table is also always a plus. Next, get out your very special set of fine china and utensils because there’s no better time to use it than Thanksgiving and Christmas. Then tie everything together with dry branches, dried herb bundles or a simple leaf bouquet – acorns and maple leaves make great additions as they draw autumnal feels to the table and voila, you got yourself a stunning table setting that will make your guests go ooh and ahh as soon as they get to the table. We’ve created a gallery of awe-inspiring Thanksgiving table settings that will give you some inspos on how to arrange your own at home this upcoming gratitude-giving day.
