Easy Thanksgiving tablescape

This year my Thanksgiving tablescape is neutral and easy, see all the details for your own inspiration!

This year for my Thanksgiving tablescape I wanted to go very neutral. I found these lovely burlap table runners at Target and decided that was going to be my inspiration for my table look! I ended up buying 4. One that ran the length of my table and two that I could cut in half and run the width of my table to use as placemats. (You’ll be able to see all the sources from this post at the bottom!)

Cutting Burlap

I have a really useful tip to use when cutting burlap. Measure your burlap to size and snip the edge of the runner exactly where you want to cut your burlap. Then, find a loose thread and pull all the way until the tread comes out. It will bunch together until the tread comes loose. This will leave you a perfect line to cut and your edges won’t fray.

Add Layers To Your Tablescape

First I added my textured burlap runner down the middle. Then, I added my cut burlap to the width of the table creating placemats for each dining room chair. Next, I added my pinstripe table runner to add some color and texture to my tablescape. And lastly, I added greenery! I love to use real or faux garland to my tablescapes.

Centerpiece

Add your prominent centerpiece to the center of the garland. If you missed my post about making a Thanksgiving centerpiece you can read about it here. I also added varying size pumpkins from our garden and taper candles and candle holders to add height to my tablescape.

Table setting

I like a more eclectic vibe for my table setting. I used mismatched white dishes that were thrifted and drinking glasses that were also thrifted. To help the table feel more cohesive with my eclectic vibe I used matching black chargers and buffalo check napkins. These napkin rings were from Target long ago –  But I’ve found similar ones and linked them a them bottom.

The key to tablescapes

The key to any dynamic tablescape is to add many layers and varying heights. This adds depth and dimension and is visually appealing. Basically, you want one thing that your eye is going to be drawn too (here – my floral arrangement) and then other things that aren’t going to compete with it, but complement it.
