Creative Thanksgiving Table Ideas

Picture from A Stirring Life

Decorating your Thanksgiving table can be a fun way to show off your personality and personal style. Spice it up with a fun centerpiece, place cards, napkin holders, and even display the menu for the day.  Here are several more pictures of different table settings you can draw inspiration from.


Do something different this year with your Thanksgiving centerpiece.  I found this beautiful creation over at It’s A Wonderful Life.  It can be done with 3 plates some clear glasses, Jelly Beans or Fruit, and leaves, pine cones, etc. It’s such a beautiful and unique centerpiece!

Place cards aren’t only to decorate your table and make it look fabulous.  Use them strategically to encourage great conversation and on the flip side avoid potential conflict.  {{wink}}
