10 Thanksgiving Ideas for Your Table

 Today I’m showcasing  some easy & inspiring ideas I  found  that you can do in your home. Most of them are simple and inexpensive to do but will make your table or sideboard so special!


I love something long and low in the center of a table. This centerpiece is filled with natural easy to find things like fall fruits/gourds/pinecones. The image is from Country Living found here.

apple votives

One of my favorite bloggers, Julie of EAB Designs, made these beautiful apple votives for a centerpiece. Go here for her easy tutorial. She makes the most beautiful things!

terra cotta pilgrim hats

Another place card or party favor are these pilgrim hats made from little terra cotta pots from All You magazine. Tutorial here  You could make a bigger one and use it as the beginning for a centerpiece for your table or buffet table.

I love this idea! The table runner is just felt and so are the bands around the candles.  You spell out out the words on both sides so both sides of the table see the same thing. From Country Living


Love, love, love this tablecloth! Inexpensive burlap with words that you can either stencil or paint around the edge.

pumpkin centerpiece

This one is simple and pretty. Pumpkins wrapped with bittersweet. Great if you have fresh bittersweet to use or buy the faux garlands. From BHG here

a thankful tree

I love this idea for a thankful tree from Simply Vintage Girl . This would look good on a sideboard. You can read all about it here

I think these are all fun ideas that are easy to do and that will add some holiday charm to your festivities!

    Lots of good ideas – thanks for passing them along. I really need to get my thinking cap on and figure out what I am doing this year. :/
    Enjoy your evening.

    Ugh! Something is wrong with my pin it button! I don’t think I’ve ever had a post where I wanted to pin just about everything on it, but I do here. I already have one of those pilgrim hat thingies, but I wanted the other. I love every single one of these idea. I’ll have to figure out why I can’t pin. Pout.

    So many cute ideas! I think I may try to incorporate a couple of these into my weekend as we have an early Thanksgiving with some friends coming in for a visit. The apple votives are just too pretty to me!

    Ooooh good ideas! I particularly love the apple votives. It’s just the three of us this year, which I’m so looking forward to since Abby will be home from college :) I’ll go visit Julie, I haven’t seen her blog before. Thanks for the inspiration!
