Well hello, November.  The leaves have finally started changing colors and falling to the ground here in New Mexico.  So begins a wonderful time of the year… a season for giving thanks and spending time with loved ones over wonderful meals, drinks and around fireplaces.  Ah… makes me smile just thinking about it.

Today I am excited to be sharing 25 exceedingly talented bloggers idea’s for place settings + tablescapes at Thanksgiving!  Each of us also will be sharing a simple DIY we used in our table setting.  Be sure to stop by each blogger below and get ready to be inspired by this Thanksgiving Tablescape blog hop!

I always enjoy setting a lovely table for Thanksgiving and today I am sharing two very simple DIYs I made for this tablescape, a dropcloth table runner and easy colored plates.

How to make a DIY Dropcloth Table Runner for Thanksgiving:

I am forever on the look out for that “perfect” tablecloth and never can quite find the one that I like.  After completing this dropcloth table runner, I may never buy another tablecloth again!

1. Cut your dropcloth to size and layout painters tape in your chosen pattern.

2. Cover any areas that you want to leave natural and apply two to three coats of paint.  I used my favorite gold color, Rustoleum Metallic Gold spray paint.  Allow to dry and it is ready for use!

How to make DIY Colored Plates for Thanksgiving:

My other DIY are these easy colored plates.  There are so many fun applications of this idea, but I was going for a more simplified look on this tablescape layout.

1. Purchase simple clear plastic plates.

2. Flip the plate over and apply your paint to the underside of the plate.  My plates had a slight rim so it was easy to keep a clean line.

3. Allow to dry and apply at least one more coat of paint for a nice saturated color.

How to set a rustic DIY Thanksgiving table setting:

I was really excited for this tablescape for a few reasons.  I am loving all things metallic right now and I was able to incorporate gold, copper and a little bit of silver (mini disco ball drink stirs).  I also was able to use my new favorite emerald green color as an accent.

I enjoy creating special places for wonderful meals, but I also know my Thanksgiving guests are a range of ages so it needs to be simple, not too fussy but still have a festive fall feel.

I am in love with these gold glittered pinecones and think they are a wonderful centerpiece.

I found this Rose Gold flatware set at Target and almost started doing cartwheels down the aisles.  At only $5 for a set, it was a steal.

Thanksgiving Clay Garlands are a fun touch to the table, too!

  1. I love using dropcloths for everything!! I am using one as a tablecloth for my Thanksgiving table :). Love your runner – the gold stripes are the perfect accent. And the T-day banner is super cute! Thanks for sharing at Fridays Unfolded!!

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Denise! I’m newly crazed for drop cloths. Are you doing anything fun to yours or just keeping it plain?

  2. I really love how you dressed up those plastic plates and made them your own. What a great idea for the holiday meal. I always hesitate to buy those for the meal because …Plastic Plates. But dressing them up like this paints a smile on my face. I think I’m gonna do it! Great ideas! Thanks for sharing at Fridays Unfolded!

    1. I totally agree, Christine! Plastic is always so much less for special occasions, but why not make it more special and then have less clean up!! ha.

  3. I really adore how this turned out! I love that it’s got some elements of traditional Thanksgiving along with a ton of fun modern accents and metallics! Everything just blends together so seamlessly 🙂

  4. You had me at the mini disco ball stirrer! Thanks for the fun tablescape and it’s been fun partying with you today!

    Have a great day rock star!

    1. You’re too kind Karianne! I’ve never used disco balls before but am sort of in love with them, hee hee. Thanks for stopping by, your table was so lovely!
