A Fall Theme

When we think of Thanksgiving table decorations, there are so many options there, and a harvest/ fall theme is one that comes to mind among the first!

Inspire yourself from the fall colors: yellow orange, burnt umber, ochre, gold. A beautiful centerpiece can be a classic cornucopia filled with small gourds and pumpkins.

For un updated and more modern look of this classic centerpiece choose a white washed horn of plenty filled with cream colored squash and light yellow pears and small onions.

This Thanksgiving decor goes great with a neutral palette and with a traditional setting as well.

How to create the look?

Shop your garden or supermarket. It is rewarding and inexpensive!

To make the table feels airy and comfortable display cream or off-white dinnerware: PopShops™ affiliate stores If you don’t have all matching plates, don’t worry! To tie it together, try and keep the arrangement of each place setting the same.

Not enough space for both: centerpiece and food?

If you need more space when serving the food and enjoy dinner conversation, instead of a cornucopia use a long wood platter filled with gourds, cones, pods and oak leaves. This easy to set centerpiece can be moved on a sideboard when serving the meal.

Two tall candles on the ends of the platter will complete the look.
