Thanksgiving Table Setting

In keeping with my attempts for non.traditional colors this year, I recently put together my thanksgiving table.  I used many items from around our home, so this was a simple and zero cost table setting.  I used different shades of blue, white and brown.
(It’s been brought to my attention that Hanukkah and Thanksgiving will be overlapping this year for the first time in over a century.  So this color combination is quite timely.)
I also went for a more fun and carefree feel than most traditional Thanksgiving table settings.

I found this adorable craft paper with white polka dots in the dollar section at Target a while ago.  Using a circle template (a fruit basket), I cut it down to size and made it into my table runner.

Even though I’m deathly afraid of birds (excluding flamingos and hummingbirds), I can’t get enough of my white West Elm rocker bird.

If only all birds were like rocking chairs, then this world would be a more peaceful place. happy thought…

I used my mismatched sewn napkins for small pops of color peeking out from under the clean crisp white top napkins.

I wrapped navy blue washi tape around toothpicks and stuck them into saved wine corks.  I made small pennants with our thanksgiving guest’s name on them for simple place cards.

The placemats are paper blueprint placemats from West Elm.

A simple gray bird cage is the center piece for this table setting.  I envision that all day we write small notes of gratitude and put them in the bird cage.  After our thanksgiving meal is over and the birdcage is full, we can pull the gratitude notes out and read them aloud to each other.

Stunning blue Mason Jars are used as drinking glasses.

I love mixing live plants, candles and found objects around the home for a fun and eclectic feel.

Will you go traditional or mix up your color palette for your Thanksgiving Day celebration?

  2. This is so lovely and simple. I’m having about 25 people for Thanksgiving and not sure what to do about dishes/glasses as I don’t have enough for everyone. I love the Mason Jars! Great idea! I have a ton of them. Thanks for the inspiration. Stopping by from Pincentive Blog Hop

    1. Danita, wow… you are not messing around with 25 Thanksgiving guests, good luck! I’d definitely say Mason Jars are the way to go to help serve that many people! Thanks for stopping by.

    1. Thanks, Michelle. It’s fun to just look around your home and use items in new ways (wine is good for more than just drinking… name tags!).

  3. So pretty Ames! And with Hanukkah and Thanksgiving overlapping this year for the first time in over a century, you picked the perfect non-traditional colors. 🙂
