Long before you carve your Thanksgiving turkey, your guests will be taking in your décor and making their first impressions on your home and how memorable the holiday celebration would be. And just because Thanksgiving is a long-running tradition, it doesn’t mean that you have to take out the same old decors and cook out the same meals year after year.
By following these tips, you can always count on entertaining your guests and giving thanks in style.
  • Shower Your Table with Fall Elements
Nature is always a reliable go-to for easy inspiration. Take advantage of the fall season and bring the warm, inviting colors indoors. Incorporate small pumpkins, gourds, and berries into your table setting. Add low candles for an intimate and inviting touch.
Alternatively, you can create handwritten place cards that you can tie with twigs to mini pumpkins to add a more personal, autumn-style touch to each place setting.
  • Think Fall Colors and Give an Unexpected Twist
When creating an elegant and classic floral centerpiece, make an arrangement full of red, orange and yellow flowers. Add an up in style by adding a striking contrast in crisp white or cobalt blue placemats, napkins, candleholders and crystal goblets.
For an element of surprise and chicness, spatter your fall tablescape with unexpected trinkets like baskets, twigs, fall leaves, and even small wooden picture frames with fall-themed photos or Thanksgiving quotes.
  • Layer Up the Drama
Some things, like cranberry and turkey, simply go well together. So don’t be afraid to think outside the box for a glamorous, dramatic flair on your Thanksgiving table. Layer rustic pieces such as wooden boards as table runners with fine porcelain vases and tall beeswax candles.
To set the stage for a more upscale look, take out your most elaborate china, gold-rimmed crystal goblets, gilded vases and candlesticks. Set them on plain, jewel-toned tablecloths and add bright orange pumpkins for a pop of color.
  • Play with Subtlety and Understated Elegance
If you are the type who believes that less is more, make the most out of the orange autumn hue and pair it with neutral colors such as tan, beige and dark brown. Scatter a few acorns on the table and tie a bright orange ribbon, burlap or twig on your napkins for a simply chic, fuss-free place setting.
And for a budget-friendly no-brainer, have your kids help you with simple do-it-yourself projects for your centerpiece, napkin ring or placeholders. For example, print or even have your kids write your dinner menu on neutral colored paper and put them in frames that you can place around the table.  Another tip is to write your guests’ names on dried leaves and set them as place holders on each plate.
Lastly, Thanksgiving is one of those times of the year when families and friends gather to give thanks for all their blessings. You can make this moment picture-perfect and extra special by investing in beautiful furniture pieces. ShoppingStock offers a wide array of masterfully crafted, American-made furniture to suit every budget, need and style.
