09 Nov Thanksgiving Tablescape With Warm Fall Colors
When it comes to hosting Thanksgiving, the decor is just as important as the food in my book. The special touches help set the meal apart. This year, I wanted to make our Thanksgiving tablescape extra warm and inviting, so it has all the autumn colors and tons of textures. Here are some of my Thanksgiving table styling tips.
Combine Complementary Colors
The color wheel you learned in school comes in handy for design. I love to use complementary colors in my decor for balance. Orange and blue are both bold and striking, but together they appear harmonious to the eye.
Let the Pumpkins Live On
Don’t put your pumpkins away after Halloween. They make great fall decor through Thanksgiving and work well as a centerpiece. I think they’re even cooler when they’re mismatched and different sizes.
Pick Up Fresh Fall Flowers
Always go with what’s in season — it’s more affordable and the flowers will look better and last longer. These burnt orange poms and spider mums gave major fall vibes. The spider mums also have the most unique texture.
Aim for Higher Heights
I always say this, but the key to a beautiful styled table is varying the height of the decor. In this case, I used a cake stand to elevate one of the large pumpkins. I also used some of these trendy twisted taper candles for more drama.
Trial and Error
You will get the best results by experimenting! This table is very different from my normal looks, so it did take some time to play around with options. I set the whole table with a different tablecloth before realizing this gold jacquard one was IT. I was also swapping candles and glassware in and out to see what would jive. Start prepping early and leave yourself lots of extra time to test different looks.
