3 Quick Tips for setting the Perfect Thanksgiving Table

Thanksgiving Day is exactly one week away and I am here to say…it is none to soon to set your Thanksgiving table. I have a few tried and true tips to help you set a table that is pretty and picture perfect with very little effort.

#1. The Centerpiece 

  1. FLOWERS are always the perfect centerpiece! Purchase a day or two early and they will be in full bloom by Thanksgiving.
  2. Pumpkins are marked down everywhere and you can also perch pumpkins anywhere and everywhere on your table or around your serving area.
  3. Candles and more candles area great addition to any table, not to mention they add a beautiful glow.
  4. Autumnal Leaves and branches. If your out of time or on a tight budget your centerpiece is right outside your front door. Gather leaves and branches and use as your holiday decor (Tip: You may want to wipe leaves with a wet paper towel and let air dry before placing on your table).


#2. Napkins/ Placemats /Table coverings

Napkins and placemats are always a wonderful addition to your table. If you lack a large enough table covering, use a bed sheet as a table cloth and no one will be the wiser.(One year I used a leopard print Ralph Lauren Bed sheet as my tablecloth and many of my guests commented on how fabulous the table looked. Little did they know that THE FABULOUS TABLECLOTH was a bedsheet.   After dinner, simply spot treat for any spills and put in the washer.

Side Note: It’s the time to use the good china-you know the plates we always keep in storage, and don’t be afraid to mix and match your plate patterns.

#2 Personalize your place settings 

  1. It’s easy and affordable to personalize your place settings with the help of your printer  or simply hand writing each persons name.


Also consider using ribbon to make a simple place setting look special.
