Thanksgiving tablescapes are more than a nice tablecloth and your best dishes. Tablescapes like landscaping, bring together many different colors and textures by using lots of decorating accessories to create tables with incredible personality. You can create many of these tablescapes for very little money by using your existing collection of glassware plus gifts from nature, from pumpkins and brightly colored leaves to pinecones and nuts.
One of my favorite tablescapes, you can pick pumpkins that fit your table and spray paint them white, which combined with the white candles and dinner ware, ties the entire design together. Use an orange, seasonal table runner below the pumpkins and wrap branches of red,orange and yellow berries around the pumpkins and you're done! Love how they've also used apple cider in glasses at each place setting to add more color.
Thanksgiving Tablescapes with Glassware
With an assorted collection of vases, hurricane lamps and miniature candle holders, you can create many different tablescapes for each season and holiday. The colors of your accessories will change the mood of the table, from vibrant and cheery reds and oranges to more subdued pinecones and fall leaves. You'll find it easy to shift colors as you move from Halloween, to Thanksgiving and then Christmas.
One of my favorite tablescapes using glass, white candles and a variety of nuts which can be eaten when they're no longer part of your decorating scheme. You can place this glassware on the table, fireplace mantel, coffee table and wherever you want to add a touch of holiday spirit but remember to never leave lit candles unsupervised.
More Formal Thanksgiving Tablescapes
Every home and family have their traditions, so of course your Thanksgiving tablescapes will fit your lifestyle. Here are a few formal tablescapes that include not only a centerpice with lovely colors, but extend the decorating to each place setting. Don't you love the simplicity of the leaves wrapped with twine, around the napkins.
