I have partnered with ProFlowers to bring you this gorgeous homemade Thanksgiving table decoration idea. Although compensated, all designs and opinions are my own.
Thanksgiving will be here in a week, so it was about time that we get started on decorating the table! We normally host Thanksgiving dinner at our house, so we’ve got to be sure that the tablescape is gorgeously set to wow our guests. I absolutely love getting into the spirit of the season, we made our own Thanksgiving table setting this year to reflect that. Learn how easy it is to make your own festive display at home, without breaking the bank!
DIY Thanksgiving Tablescape Decorations and Ideas
First: Start with choosing the perfect centerpiece
Have you ever wondered how the professionals style their tables in magazines to look so magnificent? It’s actually really easy to put together, starting with a great centerpiece. I believe that the size, colors, textures and style all set the stage for the whole design. Some people use candles, others set up a basket with acorns or pine cones. I prefer fresh flowers with vibrant colors. Remember that a larger centerpiece will need less decorations surrounding it, but can limit the amount of table space you have.
This year, we decided to put together a table setting that is an expression of the Fall season using fresh flowers and pumpkins. We picked a gorgeous Thanksgiving floral centerpiece to set the stage, there’s just something about the red, green and brown colors in this seasonal flower bouquet that gives off an Autumn warmth! ProFlowers has plenty of Thanksgiving flowers, centerpieces, treats and decorating ideas, I had to order the Seasonal Splendor bouquet because it has beautiful bronze cremons and orange tulips.
Next: Choose the base of the table
From there, we decided to use a neutral table runner due to the many colors in the bouquet. This table runner is actually an affordable paper table cloth that I folded to fit how I liked it. You can decide to cover the whole table with a cloth, or use place mats. Lie down the base you chose and set the centerpiece right in the middle.
Our floral centerpiece was on the smaller end, which was perfect to be able to add many more accents surrounding it. We also ordered a Fall Cornucopia, which came packed with fresh fruits, nuts and candies in a beautiful keepsake basket, it matched perfectly! This was a great addition to the decor, we put it right in the center next to the flower centerpiece. We still have some pumpkins left from Halloween, so we threw those in along with a few natural twigs and fall leaves. Add colorful plates to match, and maybe some napkins and silverware and you’re all set!
I think it came out beautiful! I believe that if you base your design around your centerpiece, it will turn out great! Use the colors and the style of it and go from there. If you’re in doubt, you can always draw your ideas out on paper before hand.
If you like the Seasonal Splendor Bouquet centerpiece and the Fall Cornucopia, visit ProFlowers online, there’s plenty more where that came from! You can easily put together a gorgeous tablescape with one of their vibrant Thanksgiving centerpieces, bouquets, and baskets to help with your holiday planning and decorating with ease.
