How to: Thanksgiving (part 3) Place Settings and Decorations

3:14 PM

Be sure to check out the rest of my "How to: Thanksgiving" series here! 

I'll be honest - I'm one of those "crazy" people that like to decorate for Christmas early.  As I write this, about half of my Christmas decorations are currently up and I'm itching to finish!  That being said, there's something to be said about a beautifully decorated Thanksgiving table.

Check out this link for more ideas for Thanksgiving place settings.  

For the rules to set a table, go here.


Set the tone from the very beginning, with a fun Thanksgiving/Fall themed wreath.

I love this garland.  Hang it over a dessert buffet, or really anywhere!  It's so fun, and the copper is such a wonderful accent, especially this season!

I love the idea of a "Thankful Tree."  Whether you do a small one as part of a centerpiece, or a large floor option, this could be a great family tradition that you get out every year and add more "leaves."  Even better, this can be practically free, if you collect fallen/dead branches outside!

Fun things to do with all those leaves that are taking over your yard this time of year (or the fake ones from the dollar store!) In fact, pick up a bunch of those leaves and spread them over your coffee table, TV stand, through your table centerpiece, etc, for an instant fall feeling.

Finding the right table settings is definitely important.  I am in love with copper and have a slowly growing collection of vintage copper kitchen implements, so I'm really enjoying seeing copper come back into fashion.  It's huge right now, and throwing some copper into your decor will really warm things up.
